Darcy Kincaid is half-English and half-Egyptian, which makes her a pariah in Victorian England where bloodlines are most important. Her grandmother wants Darcy to marry an Englishman, produce heirs, and ignore her tainted Egyptian heritage. Rather then take the easy way out, Darcy is determined to earn enough money to pay for her passage to Egypt. She is working on writing a collection of Egyptian stories that she hopes will get published and she accepts the position of secretary to Dr. Simon Garrett, writing a book on the derivation of words.
When she first arrives at Rosewood Hall, Simon wants to dismiss her because he expected a male but Darcy's typing skills persuades him to give her a chance. From the very beginning Simon and Darcy are attracted to one another as if they knew each other in another lifetime. Both try to fight the attraction but neither are successful yet if they are to find any happiness, they must fight an evil enemy.
