From the moment lovely,dark-haired Deirdre Fennora came to the manor of Moondragon on the wild coast of Ireland,she found herself in a bizarre and extravagant realm far removed from the Victorian world she knew.Awaiting her in this place of oriental splendor and occidental intrigue was kindness in the form of the bewitching mistress of the manor....passioin in the amorous advances of a dashing soldier of fortune...mingled dread and desire in the overwhelming presence of the powerful,tormented Moondragon heir..danger in the twisted affection of the hulking half-wit who ran wild on the vast estate, and above all, monstrous menace in the tantalizing lure of the fabulous necklace that gleamed on the neck of a woman long dead and lit the way to the grave for the living...

I read this book over again every few years, and watching her play mind games with him never gets boring. She pretends to be engaged to his uncle, he pretends to smoke opium, she ignores his summons, he breaks down her door when it wasn't even locked... and she makes fun of him in front of the servants for doing it!

There are ghosts, mysteries, hidden treasure, and his and her inconvenient fiances to deal with, all within a Chinese mansion somewhere around Ireland.
