Secrets of Hallstead House by Amy M. Reade
This is fairly new, but the description makes it sound like a 70's Gothic Romance:

"You are not wanted here. Go away from Hallstead Island or you will be very sorry you stayed."

Macy Stoddard had hoped to ease the grief of losing her parents in a fiery car crash by accepting a job as a private nurse to the wealthy and widowed Alexandria Hallstead. But her first sight of Hallstead House is of a dark and forbidding home. She quickly finds its winding halls and shadowy rooms filled with secrets and suspicions. Alex seems happy to have Macy's help, but others on the island, including Alex's sinister servants and hostile relatives, are far less welcoming. Watching eyes, veiled threats. . .slowly, surely, the menacing spirit of Hallstead Island closes in around Macy. And she can only wonder if her story will become just one of the many secrets of Hallstead House. . .

And the Kindle version is free today (5/30/15)
Thanks for the tip! I've snapped this one up today and look forward to reading it!
The synopsis sounds so similar to another synopsis I read recently but can't remember the title. Now I'll have to search for the book.
Hope this presages a rising renewed interest in and output of good old gothic romances....
