Summary
As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities. And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one. Now Izzy's given up yearning for romance. She'll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman who's never even been kissed?

Summary
Although Isolde Ophelia Goodnight's father made a fortune as the author of the bestselling series of novels that immortalized her as "Little Izzy Goodnight," he died without a penny to his name, leaving Izzy destitute and homeless. An inheritance from her godfather in the form of Gostley Castle proves a welcome surprise, even if a more appropriate name for the crumbling ruin is "ghostly" or "ghastly." Its current occupant, Lord Ransome Vane, the blind, brooding Duke of Rothbury, is considerably less charming...and unwilling to surrender his claim to the castle. However, as Izzy lays siege to his solitary existence, he may end up surrendering his heart. -- Description by Gillian Speace
