Baton Rouge, Louisiana, present day.
Brianne Davis had a busy life -- so when a friend asked her to go to a seance, she agreed -- she was dying for a little fun. Then, within the circle, a voice from the distant past called out to her. For days this spirit haunted Brianne, beckoning her with words of love -- until a brutal thunderstorm knocked her down . . .
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 1832.
Suddenly Brianne found herself in another time -- and in the body of a woman named Amity. The spirit from the seance is a handsome, flesh-and-blood man named Griffin -- married to Amity's first cousin.
As Brianne struggles to behave like a lady -- and get used to both a new body and a new time -- she finds her heart turning irresistibly to the man of the house. Although both struggle to keep their feelings secret, the passion between them is powerful. Then tragedy strikes, forcing them to be true to their love, and to each other. But when Brianne faces the chance to return to her own time, she must struggle to hold onto her new-found happiness . . .
