Griffin Teague meets his match in the last place he ever thought to look—right next door.
Orphaned Minerva Tomgallon has just inherited a fortune … and a haunted manor house. Now she must build a life she never expected with abilities she hasn’t yet mastered—made even more difficult by her becoming one of the most eligible young ladies in the district. Most aggravating is Captain Griffin Teague, heir to the adjoining estate, who insists on offering his opinions when what she needs is his help.
For Minerva is learning that there are dangerous secrets hidden on the abandoned acres of her new home. The dashing Captain Teague has just been named the head of the preventive men, determined to catch the smugglers who have been plying their trade along the Cornish coast.

Complicating this tangle is a spark of unexpected attraction between herself and Griffin that could well ripen into something deep and lasting. But only if his duty doesn’t cause her disgrace …
