Anna McKenzie had promised her dying father that she'd take her young brother away from the rough gold mining camp near Carson City and seek sanctuary with her aunt on the shore of Lake Tahoe. An orphan now, and destitute, Anna was filled with foreboding about the sister her father had mentioned only on his deathbed.When the schooner Tahoe reached the remote cove, and Anna looked up at the huge, barnlike house perched on the cliffs high above the lake, her fears grew. The stern, eccentric woman who claimed to be her aunt behaved erratically...then threateningly...and with a secrecy that aroused Anna's suspicions. But the more Anna learned about the strange midnight visitor, the furtive whispers in the shadowy house, and the older woman's dark ambitions and even darker secrets, the more danger she was in. Even the protective attentions of handsome Lyle Delany couldn't keep Anna safe. And if the schooner did not stop at Blackbriar Bay soon, there would be no escape for either of them...for the lake was wide and deep...
