'An inheritance from an uncle she had never known brought lovely Paula Forbury on an unexpected journey to beautiful Hawaii, land of sun, surf, and romance. And the island magic seemed to cast its spell on Paula from the moment handsome attorney Stephen Bradford picked her up at the airport and whisked her away to the isolated plantation that now belonged to her.
'But if Stephen was everything she could have wished for in a man, her uncle's estate was the exact opposite of all her fanciful dreams. Dark and decaying, the mansion seemed shrouded by an oppressive evil. If not for Stephen's reassuring presence, Paula wouldn't have spent even one night in the old house. Yet she stayed on, ignoring her fear, telling herself there were no such things as devil spirits -- until, cut off from the outside world and her last hope of safety, she could no longer deny the frightening, deadly truth...!'

He had already claimed at least one victim: and if dear, loving, protective James did not soon return to recue her from this accursed mansion, Alicia, too, would fall prey to the monstrous ghost at Ravenswood!'
