Publisher's Summary

A Gothic romance novel from Bram Stoker brings you a tale of death, romantic rivalries, spurned love, adventure on the high seas, and survival. Lust, greed, and broken hearts are aplenty in this romantic novel.

Stephen Norman is to inherit her father’s vast fortune and estate. She seeks to ask Leonard Everard (a wastrel) to marry her, but only to prove that she can ask a man to marry her and defy 19th-century convention which says a man can only ask a woman to marry.

This sets into motion a showdown between two old rivals for her hand in marriage, as Harold An Wolf (a gentleman) is in love with her. This destructive rivalry leads to adventures on the high seas and a love story that spans oceans and continents.

Who will win in this love rivalry? Will Stephen Norman marry Leonard, or will Harold win the day, or will she choose a path without either of them?

If you enjoyed the classic romance in Dracula, then you will love this novel by the king of Gothic, Bram Stoker. His most famous works include The Lair of the White Worm, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Snake's Pass.
