After losing her father and suffering at the hands of her cruel husband, Sandrine flees from her home in New York to Paris in order to seek refuge at the historic and beautiful mansion home of her beloved grandmother. But upon arrival, Sandrine finds the mansion mysteriously locked and empty, with her grandmother ensconced in an apartment.

Sandrine longs to visit the mansion, which holds wonderful memories for her, but her grandmother forbids it, stating only that it is too dangerous. Defying her grandmother’s wishes, Sandrine visits the mansion and meets the dashing, Julian Duplessi—a prominent architect who has been hired to turn the mansion into a museum.

Sandrine and Julian become embroiled in an erotic affair, but something else is hiding in the mansion as well . . . the ghost of a sixteenth century courtesan and ancestor; a witch named La Lune.
