"One of the supreme writers of gothic romance, a compelling storyteller whose gripping novels have thrilled millions."--RT Book Reviews

She's torn between two men.
One man is her destiny.
The other is her demise.

According to legend, a girl will see her future husband at the time of the hunter's moon. But when the handsome stranger revealed to Cordelia Grant disappears after an all-too-brief encounter, she has to wonder: Was he merely an apparition...or something more?

The memory of her mysterious gentleman continues to haunt Cordelia when Sir Jason Verringer comes calling. It's rumored the dashing land baron murdered his wife and mistress. But Cordelia knows, better than anyone, not to believe in society gossip. And there's no denying that Jason is dangerously compelling. Her future hinges on one choice.

It sounded so good, but really, it was a lot of exposition without a lot of action. Could have been a third shorter. Plus, the love story was unbelievable as in I had to put the book down and walk away for a minute.

Definitely not one of my favorites by V. Holt. To threaten a girl with rape in order to convince her that he is the one she wants, and for her to secretly find him exciting, was awful and unrealistic. This book was published in 1983 which, to me, meant the author should have known that rape is violent assault, not romance. He was a stalker really and she half-liked it.

Aunt Patty was funny, loving and wise. It was satisfying that Cordelia was a help to Teresa. The murder mystery part was imaginative.

I was getting bored before we finally got to the conclusion. It wrapped up quickly. Cordelia married the man who seemed more like a threat to her and he wasn't a likable character. He whined and begged.

If this book had been shorter and the offensive parts left out, it would have been a better story. It is not a book I would read again or recommend.
