In the first in Tessa Dare's captivating Castles Ever After series, a mysterious fortress is the setting for an unlikely love . . .

Growing up as the daughter of famed author Sir Henry Goodnight, Isolde spun romantic tales of knights and maidens. But now Izzy has nothing--aside from a stone heap inherited from her godfather. Gostley Castle is rundown, reportedly haunted, and already inhabited--by a darkly sensual recluse who claims to be the Duke of Rothbury. And he's not budging.

Ransom Vane intends to find the castle's rumored treasure. After a life marked by hardship and betrayal, he deserves it--far more than any sheltered English miss. Except Izzy is no gullible girl; she's intelligent, tenacious, and tempting beyond reason. With her wits and his brawn, they could find the priceless relics. All he needs to do is resist the urge to care for her.

A simple task . . . and quite impossible, when Izzy is fast becoming the prize he craves most of all . . .
