Newly graduated Hailey is shy and a bit nerdy, when she buys an old Victorian mansion and sets about renovating it. She doesnt understand, at first, why she starts to feel such powerful erotic impulses, why her pulse races and strange, feverish sexual dreams assault her mind and body both day and night. Then she discovers that the old mirror in her attic is a doorway to the nineteenth century, when the house was built and owned by a roguish womanizer. Touching the mirror transports her to another time, where James Patrick Adams lives! Adams is handsome and sexy, but he has a 19th century mans attitude towards women, and their need to be obedient and well-disciplined. Since Hailey arrives during a lewd party he takes her to be a prostitute, and sets out to teach her submission!
