After a broken love affair, biographer Kate Kennedy retires to a remote cottage on the wild Essex coast to work on her new book until her landlord's daughter uncovers a Roman site nearby and long-buried passions are unleashed…

In her lonely cottage, Kate is terrorized by mysterious forces. What do these ghosts want? That the truth about the violent events of long ago be exposed or remain concealed? Kate must struggle for her life against earthbound spirits and ancient curses as hate, jealousy, revenge and passion do battle across the centuries…

From the Back Cover:

Kate Kennedy, intent on finishing her new book on Byron and suffering from the aftermath of an affair, rents a cottage on the bleak Essex coast. But Alison Lindsey, daughter of the people who own it, has been excavating what she thinks is a Roman grave in the nearby dunes. Kate's arrival precipitates the terror that follows as the spirits of the Roman, Marcus Severus Secundus, his wife Claudia and her lover, the Druid prince, Nion seeks to work out their vengeance on one another two thousand years after their deaths…

'May the Gods of all eternity curse you, Marcus Severus Secundus and bring your putrid body and your rotten soul to judgement for what you have done here this day.'
