Art student Ursula St Clare is less than thrilled when she is forced to spend her summer break alone in a chilly, isolated mansion perched on the edge of a cliff. Things go from bad to worse when a neighbour warns her that the house is haunted. Ursula has already sensed that something is not right at Colton Manor, and she makes the decision to sublet a room in the hope that some human company will help keep the ghosts at bay.
Scientist Damien Knight is a self-proclaimed sceptic when it comes to all things supernatural. He needs somewhere to stay while his home is being renovated, and Ursula finds herself instantly attracted to the older man. She entertains thoughts of a summer fling with her sexy new housemate, but it isn’t long before Damien starts acting very strangely and Ursula begins to fear for her safety.
Has she let a dangerous, unstable man into the house, or is it Colton Manor and its evil legacy which is causing him to behave so bizarrely?
