Anna Featherstone is just sixteen and should never even encounter a person like the wicked Earl of Carne, but when she discovers a secret door, she can't resist exploring, especially when the door and all about it comes straight out of her favourite gothic novel.

Anna's been struck, too, however. By his fatal charm...
