Just how far would you go to save your best friend from a fate worse than death?
In this 3rd book, continuing the “Jeweled Dagger Series,” Olivia Townsend is willing to do whatever it takes to save Lilly from just such a fate.
The year is 1804 and Lady Olivia Sophia Allen Townsend has just turned 20 years old. She is beautiful, well-educated and considered by some in polite society to be far too eccentric for her own good. When Olivia was younger, she was very open about her gift. She is not only able to see spirits, but she can talk to them as well. Being shunned by her peers has caused Olivia to turn her back on those who need her the most – spirits caught between two worlds. That is until her best friend Lilly Collins comes to her in the middle of the night and asks for her help. Lilly can’t remember what happened to her and finds herself in need of Olivia’s unique gifts.
Olivia’s younger sister, Coco, is also gifted with a unique set of skills – she can touch someone and know things about them that they would sometimes prefer to keep hidden. Together, the sisters set off on a sea voyage from Ireland to America, intent on solving the mystery of Lilly’s untimely death.
Brody and Quinton Beaumont are fine-looking, eligible, southern gentlemen and heirs to a successful cotton empire. They also happen to be twins hiding a deep dark secret. Their mother, Annabelle Beaumont died eight years earlier on the night of their annual birthday winter ball, yet she continues to rule over their plantation home with an iron fist.
When Olivia meets Brody, she is immediately drawn to him, but she has never been drawn to any man before. Fighting the undeniable connection to Brody Beaumont, she must first figure out if she can trust him, and if he or his twin brother Quinton had anything to do with Lilly’s death.
