Diana has arrived at the dark, fog-shrouded Penryth Hall to work as a live-in physical therapist. She is told that her employer, the owner of the hall, was in an accident two months ago and needs rehabilitation. A dark, gloomy hall, an ancient housekeeper… Surely the master of the house is some kind of grouchy old man. But Diana finds a virile young man waiting for her—Edward. His cold eyes shut out everyone and everything, but when he discovers Diana is a virgin, he embraces her, whispering that he wants her to stay with him!
