That and the fact that Sylvan hasn't become the woman that her mother is. Sylvan's mother is a whisper of a woman who depends on her husband to make every decision and never offers her opinion. During the Napoleonic War, Sylvan traveled to Brussels to stay with her friend, the earl. Rand becomes so surly in his condition that his older brother, Garth, Duke of Clairmont, finds a nurse who will hopefully be able to tame his temper. When Sylvan arrives at Clairmont Court, she is informed that it is haunted. Shortly after hearing the story, Sylvan is welcomed to Clairmont Court by a stool shattering one of the front windows swiftly followed by a loud temper tantrum. Sylvan and Rand have met before. Between Rand's paralysis, the trouble at the mill and family differences Rand and Sylvan learn to trust and appreciate each other. Rand and Sylvan's relationship is like a mountain range. As the reader we understand why things are happening and how the other characters are feeling and it was nice to watch them discover themselves.The secondary plot line regarding the mill didn't overpower the romance but added to it.

The hero is tortured for about 3 chapters and then he back to being the rake and funny man he always was. Up until the death of his brother, it was a boring and rather plan love story and I honestly considered giving up. The heroine, a capable nurse, is horror struck by the fact that she's unable to put herself back around the madness and turns coward in the face of all the blood. It was made out to be like a family dog had died instead of his flesh and blood. The whole story from that point on was the heroine dealing with her new title and trying to find out who's being attacking village women.

I cried at the end of this, too, but not because it was bad or depressing, just sad, because Garth's death (which I would like to spoil anybody for) is genuinely saddening.

This would NEVER have happened between an English duchess and an employee even in the 20th century, let alone in 1816!

Sylvan and Rand are drawn together not only by love and desire, but also by the bond they share as survivors.
