Over a hundred years after the death of Magnus Blackwell, Altmover Manor sits abandoned.
Lexie Arden and her fiancé, Will Bennet, are determined to rescue the neglected Mount Desert Island landmark. They want to make Altmover Manor their home. But Magnus has other plans.
A spirit bound to his former residence, Magnus finds himself inexplicably drawn to the young woman. She has a supernatural gift; a gift Magnus wants to exploit.
As Lexie and Will settle in, secrets from Magnus’s past begin to surface. Compelled to learn all she can about the former owner, Lexie becomes immersed in a world of voodoo, curses, and the whereabouts of a mysterious dragon cane.
Magnus’s crimes won’t be so easily forgotten, and what Lexie unearths is going to change the future … for everyone.
Inside the master bathroom, Lexie closed the door and switched on the light.
What is going on?
At the vanity, she fought to find a rational explanation for the change in Will.
“He’s worried about the money, and this house is zapping his energy. Get a grip.”
She flipped on the cold water, splashed her face, and reached for her toothbrush when a chill entered the room.
“Not again.” She squeezed the toothbrush.
Her reflection clouded over as smoke obscured her bathroom mirror. She gasped as the smoke turned into the face of a man.
Lexie wanted to scream for Will, but the face changed. This wasn’t Magnus Blackwell, but someone else. With black wavy hair, warm brown eyes, and a pleasing curve to his chin, he looked at Lexie and smiled.
Lexie dropped her toothbrush and ran from the bathroom.
“What’s wrong?” Will asked as she entered the bedroom.
He’d changed into his blue pajama bottoms and thrown his jeans and briefs on the floor. Will seemed so normal, so calm, she didn’t have the heart to upset him.
“I saw a big spider.”
“Yeah, getting the exterminator out here to spray is on my to-do list.” Will pulled back the covers on the bed. “I’ll call him this week. Be careful rummaging around the attic. I don’t want you to get bit by anything.”
She jogged around to her side of the bed. “I’ll keep an eye out.”
Once settled under the covers, Lexie cuddled against him.
Will wrapped an arm around her. “You’re shivering.”
She nuzzled her head into his chest. “It was a really big spider.”
“You want me to go in there and kill it for you?”
She sighed, calming down. “No, Will. This one may already be dead.”
