fallen for an actor who does not meet her father’s approval. Lord Shelford banishes
her from London to his newly acquired country seat, Priory Park, where she
feels lonely—but not for long. Soon she meets the Delverton brothers and their
mysterious companion, Jed Barker. There are dark secrets surrounding Priory
Park and the Delvertons, but Davina cannot help becoming attracted to the
handsome Lord Delverton, despite his indifference to her. Under pressure from
her father, she announces her engagement to the younger brother, Howard, only
to find him equally cold and detached.
After a spate of robberies in the neighborhood,
suspicion falls on the local gypsies. Davina meets the beautiful and sensuous
Esmé, not realizing what a strong influence she will have on her future
happiness. Despite herself, Davina finds she is in a most precarious position …
and in great danger from the forces swirling around her.

love, and finally find the life she wants?
