A hall of secrets. A deadly curse. Can their love overcome her dark legacy, or is it doomed from the start?
Sofia Ambrose enjoys her simple life as a veterinarian, far away from the opulence and dark secrets of her family’s historic Texas estate. When she and her five sisters are summoned to the Ambrose Estate for a reading of her grandmother’s will—a grandmother who, at 88 years old, is still alive and kicking—Sofia is both bewildered and intrigued. But the truth is more shocking than she could have imagined– her grandmother has turned Ambrose Estate over to her, and she must give up every hope of a regular life in order to run it and protect her family’s legacy.
When disaster strikes, Sofia must act quickly to save the family fortune. Unfortunately, this means working with the rude and insufferable Gavin Spencer. He thinks Sofia is just a spoiled, rich oil heiress. But once she gets to know him, Sofia discovers Gavin’s charm, intellect, and incredible bravery, and soon enough she is falling hard for the rugged firefighter.
Despite her feelings, Sofia knows their love is doomed. Ambrose Estate’s mansion, with its Hall of the Dead, contains so many secrets Sofia can’t even count them. An old family curse stands between her and happiness, and she must sacrifice Gavin’s love to save his life.
Desperately, Sofia searches for answers in her great-great-grandmother’s journal. Does it contain the key to breaking the curse? Or will her heart have to break into a thousand pieces?
