Lavinia Murphy fled a brutal St. Louis orphanage with four younger "siblings" and learned a spiritualist's ways from the carnies and gypsies she met on the road to New York City. Transformed as the mysterious Countess Lovaenya, she has built a safe haven for herself and her troubled family when she is suddenly confronted by a phantom more fearsome than any she's ever conjured in her shadowy parlor.
Edward Stuyvesant-French -- the illegitimate son of Lavinia's wealthiest, and most frequent client -- has vowed to destroy her. To protect her family, Lavinia will enter into an uneasy bargain with the powerful Edward that forces her to see beyond the darkness of a bitter soul to a heart aching for comfort, acceptance, and healing love.
