Upon its remote mount, WinShire Castle endures.  Haunted for centuries, the resident ghosts are star-crossed lovers who seek each other within its dark halls.  Lord Richard and Lady Victoria were murdered on their wedding night.  As they died, Richard placed a curse upon the castle that resulted in the No Heir Curse. The castle is passed down to distance relatives, until abandoned, and left to the elements.  Sandy Gaspar, a real estate agent, is given the task of selling the castle.  Her entrance into the castle attracts attention from the spirits. During her inspection, she becomes trapped in the dungeon and is rescued by Josh Foxworth.  The ghosts see their chance to prevent the curse; they possessed Josh and Sandy. Time regressed to the evening of the massacre in 1569AD.  Re-enactment of that auspicious eve results in preventing the deaths of Richard and Victoria.  This has altered the Timeline.  Next morning finds a different castle!  Now, Josh is engaged to Ophelia, the Witch, and Sandy is the daughter of the current Lordship.  They have no memory of their night in the castle.  The surprise consequence leads them into a world of dark magic, and attempts on Sandy‚Äôs life!
