"Alaric Storm III feels like a ghost haunting his own busy household after returning from the bloody Crimean War. Thirty-five years later, frontline field nurse Laura Dearborn survives the Great War, but has no one to keep her company except the ghosts who help her earn her a meager living as a fortune-teller. Despite the barrier of time, Laura and Alaric have an impossible spiritual connection tied to his estate, Stonecross Hall, which Alaric leaves to Laura in his will years before she's born. When she inherits Stonecross on her 28th birthday and connects with Alaric, they combine efforts to bridge the gap in time and fight for the love that binds them. Kelly's thoughtful debut novella sensitively evokes the horrors of war and the emotional difficulties facing veterans in peacetime, and the atmospheric descriptions of 1920s London and Victorian high society illuminate the temporal and social differences separating the lovers."

For fans of Downton Abbey and readers of Jude Deveraux and Teresa Medeiros comes a brand-new tale of a love that dares to defy time itself . . .
When psychic Laura Dearborn inherits Stonecross Hall in 1926, she has no idea she's inheriting a love story too--one that she's lived again and again. But as Alaric Storm III, the handsome owner of the mansion from sixty years earlier, starts to haunt her waking dreams, Laura discovers her heart's true home has always been within Stonecross's walls.
Tormented by memories of war, Alaric Storm III is used to spirits--just not ones from the future. Set on fire by Laura's ghostly affections, Alaric is forced to choose: follow his heart and grasp Laura's hand through time, or surrender to the call of duty and live without love.
As All Hallows' Eve draws near, Alaric and Laura must find a way to hold on to each other forever--or risk repeating their tragic romance until the end of time.
