Legend beckons a romantic schoolgirl to await her future husband in a forest at the time of the hunter's moon. When a handsome stranger appears, Cordelia Grant wonders if she is dreaming. But time will prove this fateful encounter to be all too real and far beyond the reaches of a young girl's imagination.
Haunted by the memory of her mystery man, Cordelia begins a new life as schoolmistress at a girls' academy. In Devon she finds herself pursued by Jason Verringer, a dashing land baron with a scandalous reputation. Cordelia knows she should despise the man who, it is rumored, murdered his wife and mistress. But to her dismay, he begins to invade her thoughts -- and to compete with the carefully preserved memory of the fair, handsome stranger from her schoolgirl days.
