Debutante Juliet Carleton defies her family to marry the enigmatic Duke of Radcliffe, despite his first wife's mysterious death, but she meets danger when he gives her a reputedly cursed necklace
Barbara Dawson's novel Dreamspinner, written about twenty years ago, is still my favorite novel by this author. Well plotted, full of surprises and with engrossing leads this novel is a gem.

Kent Devrill Duke of Radcliffe lost his wife in a freak accident, or was it? The ton whispers that she jumped to her death from her castle tower but Kent feels differently. Her last uttering that fateful day before she died in Kent's arms was the mysterious word Dreamspinner.

Kent if full of righteous vengeance but the reader is uncertain as to why Kent has a grudge against rich Emmett Carleton and his family, they are more than just business rivals. Juliet Carleton is uncertain as to the animosity between her father and Kent but she is absolutely fascinated by the Duke and when he appears at her ball she sets out to learn more about this enigmatic man.

Kent has honed in on Juliet and he knows she is the perfect instrument for his revenge. Unfortunately she is not the scheming grasping woman he believed her to be and in spite of himself he feels himself drawn toward her. These leads don't fight their attraction at all and there is a charm about their secret rendezvous. Juliet knows she can heal Kent's broken heart and Kent changes his plans for the pretty Juliet, instead of merely ruining her, he wants to marry her which in his mind is an even greater blow to his enemy.

Juliet and Kent are a dynamic couple. Juliet's passion and sympathetic nature are apparent in almost all her actions. She is smart and very kind. Kent is simply haunted; his feelings toward his deceased wife govern so much of his present life. He wrestles with guilt, loyalty and vengeance, yet he truly admires Juliet and does not want her injured in any way but realizes he cannot be honest with her either.

There are so many interesting characters in this novel. Kent's family is eccentric and they all live in his manor. He has an absent minded cousin whose wife is stingy at home yet generous to the less fortunate, his deceased father's former mistress occupies a tower of the castle along with his eighteen year old half sister (both are quirky), and Kent has an Indian servant who knows about the feud between Juliet's father and Kent but is mum on the details.

Always in the background of this novel is the mystery of dreamspinner. What is the significance of this final word from Kent's wife, how did she really die and does danger still lurk in Kent's castle home? There are many twists in this novel. I was surprised and never guessed how the story would end. Kent and Juliet make a fine pairing and their romance is never overshadowed by the mysterious happenings within their families.
I have not had a chance to read the book as yet, so I am not sure how much I will enjoy it.
