But when the widower of her best friend courts her to sell her the land so they can rebuild and live together, she returns to Azalea House and reawakens the spirits that haunt her.

While home in Louisiana, Marianne explores her sexuality and a growing interest in dominance. But when her taboo lover is found dead in a scandalous position, she’s left to wonder if there is murder in her heart or the truth is far more disturbing.
