When Cassandra de Warenne meets Antonio de la Barca a renowned professor of history, Cass isn't prepared for the intense and immediate attraction-a feeling that heralds something deeper, more powerful, and more perilous than she could ever imagine. Their families have been entwined for centuries linked together by a history of horrendous heartbreak, bitter rivalry, and bloodshed that began 450 years ago, with one woman, Isabel, forsaken and betrayed by her family, her lover, and her friends.

An English estate and a haunted castle in Spain provide scenic backdrops for best-selling Joyce's tale of two sisters, Tracy and Cass de Warenne, in love with a professor of medieval studies, Antonio de la Barca. When the affair between drop-dead gorgeous jet-setter Tracy and Antonio sours, the dashing Spaniard concentrates on Cass, a self-effacing romance novelist with a penchant for history. Strangely enough, their family trees are intertwined, spanning centuries of intrigue, revenge, and mysterious deaths. Once Joyce delivers her characters to Antonio's remote ancestral home, the stage is set for a beautiful ghost to take possession of her unsuspecting victims. Intent on making up for the suffering she endured long ago, Isabel wreaks havoc on the descendants of all whom she counts as enemies. With myriad twists and turns, much bloodshed, and plenty of passionate embraces, Cass and Antonio triumph over the unearthly obstacles threatening their happiness. And Isabel's spirit finds peace at last

Rivalries, jealosies, passions, and intrigue are all here in this suspenseful novel full of lush senuality and richly faceted characters- and cold-blooded murder.

I'm a mostly historical romance reader and a HUGE fan of BJ's historicals and because of her reputation, I decided to read this one even though it's set in modern-day times. Boy, am I glad I did! This has now become one of my favorite books!!!! Although it's a contemporary novel, it's got a dash of paranormal to keep you "glued to your seat" from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book!!!
