Bride of a Stranger (Classic Gothics Collection #2)
Claire is too innocent to suspect that her marriage is a cruel farce,
believing instead that the dangerous accidents that keep appearing in her
path are just that?accidents.
She wedded Justin Leroux suddenly and silently. He was the tall dark
stranger of her girlhood dreams, and had finally come to take her away.
She returns with him to Sans Songe, the Leroux family plantation in
Louisiana. A near-fatal accident on the road to the plantation does not
bode well for her future there. And indeed, many nasty surprises await
her at the plantation itself. Voodoo magic, poisoned food, and a murder
mystery force Claire into a stalemate. She is helpless within the bosom
of her frigid and isolating new family, while her husband has yet to come
to her bed. He may even be hoping for her destruction, as she is drawn
into an ever more tangled web of passion and intrigue...
