(From the publisher):
When the bells of St Branok ring, disaster is sure to follow…
Angelet heard them that fateful day when she met a terrifying stranger at the pool, the day she and her childhood hero—her cousing Benedict—encountered an evil that brought her near death and exiled him to the other side of the world.
From that day forward Angelet's life was changed. Seemingly destined for a marriage as secure and happy as her childhood, she was forced to follow her husband to the lawless goldfields of Australia—where once again she meets her beloved cousin, now powerful, rich, and disturbingly attractive.
Torn between duty and desire, Angelet discovers depths in her own nature as deep as the pool of St Branok, whose curse it seems she cannot escape, however far she travels.
