To secure her inheritance, Jessica agrees to a marriage of convenience, but will her handsome new husband’s desire for her ever surpass his obsession with a famously cursed opal? 

Raised in the shadow of her family’s financial ruin, Jessica Clavering has never been understood or loved at the Dower House. But when a unique inheritance compels her to marry the owner of a fabled opal mine, she leaves her past behind in pursuit of a brighter future in Australia. 

It’s only once they arrive on the far away continent that Jessica starts to uncover her family’s dark past.
