THE HEART OF STONEM MANOR
This is Lana Moon's first full-length novel!
Set in a rural mansion near the city of St. Jerome, widower John Stonem has been grieving for his wife for years. When all hope seems lost, he catches sight of Hazel Loveless--a struggling single mother . . . who just so happens to be a dead-ringer for John's late wife.
John Stonem is a man of great wealth. He adores his wife beyond life itself and showers her with expensive gifts and a lavish house. The problem? The house was built on cursed land. And when John's wife suddenly dies in a freakish accident, he falls into a deep depression and refuses to leave the home he shared with his love.
Hazel Loveless is a strong and independent woman whose boyfriend walked out of her life as soon as she became pregnant. Determined to build a better life for herself and young daughter, she journeys to the troubled city of St. Jerome for a job...and unknowingly changes the rules of fate.
A nearly botched kidnapping occurs, and suddenly Hazel is thrown into the center of John's dark and lonely world. Convinced that Hazel is truly his wife back from the dead, John strikes a deal with Hazel: Stay with him for a month, and if he can't convince her that she is truly his lost love, Hazel can leave...with $250,000 in her pocket to start a new future with.
The closer Hazel gets to John, the more the line blurs between kidnapper and lover. But if she falls for John, is she allowing him to believe his delusion? As if things aren't confusing enough, Hazel's young daughter latches on to a peculiar doll, claiming the doll tells her secrets about the house . . . and what really happened to John's late wife. Hazel is determined to give her daughter a better life, but at what cost?
And when increasingly strange happenings continue within the house, both John and Hazel must face an even darker truth than either realized. Will love conquer a dark curse and mend two broken hearts?
