Raine Brinsley is anything but IDLE when she takes a position as a servant at Stafford House. Let's just say she has more trouble on her hands than she can manage with the owner's late wife, a ghost, someone trying to leave her supernatural messages, a tea leaf reader and Murder! Who would have thought being a serving maid was so dangerous??

About the Novel:

Penniless when she arrives in Norfolk, her mother and father drowned at sea, Raine Brinsley longs to return home to her grandfather in Maine. When Derek Stafford, owner of an affluent manor, offers a solution to her dilemma, Raine is stunned. And outraged. She agrees to fulfill the contract to bear his child, and vows to dispel every memory of the cad from her mind. Will her traitorous heart listen?
Derek’s only goal in life is to father an heir for Stafford House to secure his future. But the exquisite Scottish lass arrives at the manor and interferes with his best-laid plans, and his heart. After one night in her arms, guilt, and the loss of his soul become his penance. He’ll do anything to win her love, anything to quench his tormenting hunger.
