New York Times Bestselling Author.

Centuries ago, in another lifetime, the man Jillian Llewellyn loved tried but failed to save her. Now, in this season of miracles, two lost souls are being given a second chance.

Since her husband's death, jewelry designer Jillian Llewellyn has withdrawn, focusing only on her work. But something unimaginable is going to shatter her safe world, drawing her into a web of danger and desire. At the center of the storm is a handsome stranger, Robert Marston. The new silent partner at Llewellyn Enterprises, Marston is as formidable as he is intimidating . . . as mysterious as he is familiar. The connection she feels is bone deep -- as if they've known each other before.

When several bizzare accidents strike Jillian, a chilling fear that someone wants to harm her bigins to grow. But who would want her dead? A co-worker? A member of her own close-knit family? Against her will she is drawn to Robert, unsure whether he is her salvation . . . or her damnation. Now, as the ghosts of the past are resurrected, Jillian and Robert must forge a new destiny as they unlock the timeless secrets of passion and betrayal . . .

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A 17th-century romantic tragedy haunts a 20th-century couple in this latest novel by prolific romance writer Graham (Night of the Blackbird). Jewelry designer Jillian Llewellyn works for her grandfather at Llewellyn Enterprises in Manhattan, where her cousins feud for power. Sunny Jillian, her grandfather's favorite, leads a charmed life, but as Halloween approaches, she is disturbed by strange dreams and troubled by the arrival at Llewellyn's of a new manager, darkly handsome Robert Marston. At a Halloween party, both Jillian and Robert are warned by a tarot card reader of impending danger, and told that they were connected in a previous life. Their attraction to each other in this life is plain, and on a Christmas-season company trip to the Llewellyn homestead in Connecticut, they grow closer. In Connecticut, too, Robert is prompted by a helpful ghost to do some research into the 1661 story of a woman burned to death as a witch in England. Do a number of attempts on Jillian's life have anything to do with that long-ago horror? Unfortunately, the 17th-century tale is retold so many times in the prologue, in the historical account of the times and in two different diary excerpts that the repetition undermines the plot's punch. The Llewellyn family wrangling functions as an entertaining sideshow, but as the tale builds to a climax, its credibility is weakened by unlikely developments the number of times Robert saves Jillian from attempts on her life alone borders on the absurd. Narrative flaws aside, diehard fans will relish the cozy Connecticut Christmastime setting.

From Library Journal

A violent, tragic 17th-century love affair impacts the lives of a wealthy modern family as the characters are given another chance to "get it right" in this fast-paced, intricately plotted tale that, despite its Christmas setting, is far from the typical warm and cozy holiday romance. Warned of violent danger and enemies by a fortune-teller one Halloween, heiress and jewelry designer Jillian Llewellyn is far too practical to take such nonsense seriously; but when a few too many accidents, terrifying dreams, and unexplained feelings and memories begin to plague her, she knows she must find some answers. Ghostly visitors and an English history book provide clues in this compelling, darkly magical tale of enduring love and reincarnation, which will please fans who want a holiday romance with a paranormal twist and a bit of a mystery besides. Graham (Night of the Blackbird), who also writes as Shannon Drake and Heather Graham Pozzessere, is a New York Times best-selling author and lives in Miami.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing Holiday Diversion Dec 22 2001
Format:Hardcover
Author Heather Graham, who also writes as Heather Graham Pozzessere, introduces the reader to her newest work of fiction, ripe with the paranormal, a possible killer, and passionate romance.
Enter the clan Llewellyn, a powerful New York family running a profitable company. Patriarch Douglas is getting on in years, and widowed granddaughter Jillian is viewed as his favorite choice to lead the company in the future. When Douglas hires handsome Robert Marston to help oversee the company and keep a close watch on Jillian, other family members become rather resentful. The relationship between the cousins is often difficult to keep straight and slightly too quirky for this read. Nevertheless, they all become suspects in Robert's book as Jillian encounters one too many "accidents".
The attraction between Robert and Jillian is a definite highlight of this read, as it is well-executed, not too explicit, and innovative in design when they discover that they may have known each other in a past life. When Jillian begins to have strange dreams of fire, Robert becomes more convinced that he must stay by her side. And as they discover an old history book and meet with a psychic, Robert and Jillian learn that they now may have a chance to right the wrong of a past life.
Highlighted as a pre-Christmas tale, this is a light read with just enough mystery and miracles to keep the reader in a holiday mood. Though not Ms. Graham's best, overall, this is a fast-paced work of fiction sure to provide diversion from the frenzy of the holiday season.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful novel to get one in the holiday mood Oct. 28 2001
Format:Hardcover
Since her husband's death last year, though she hates hearing this, jewelry designer Jillian Llewellyn lives and breathes Llewellyn Enterprises. In fact she's so engrossed in producing this year's Yuletide winner, Jillian has not even met the company's newest partner Robert Marston.

Following a personal tradition that she has done for years on Halloween, Jillian and her long time friend and her administrative assistant Connie goes Christmas shopping. However, unbeknownst to the designer, this is the beginning of a personal nightmare. Accidents start to happen and bad dreams commence to haunt Jillian. Somehow Robert seems to always be there to help her. He claims her family wants her out of the way insisting he is heeding the advice of the paranormal species, a book, and other objects. Surprisingly even as he frightens her, Jillian feels comfortable and perhaps in love with Robert in a déjà vu way, but wonders if he is the cause of the danger that threatens to engulf her at any moment.

Heather Graham is a sure shot for providing the audience with the best in romantic suspense. Her most recent novel, A SEASON FOR MIRACLES, uses paranormal elements to tell two stories, one from the past that parallels the second in the present. Though tricky to move back and forth through the (p)ages, Ms. Graham easily navigates the peril of disruption through a strong story line containing a consistent and veritable cast including a likable heroine in peril. Readers have quite a novel to luxuriate with while escaping the frantic pre-Christmas season.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to usual standards Jan. 6 2002
Format:Hardcover
Sorry, but I didn't think this was one of Graham's best. The heroine is too passive, too cowardly, too stupid. 3 Heroine Survival Tips: (1) Got a family history book that details how an ancestress (whom you suspect you may be the reincarnation of) died? Then don't read the tale in 3 separate parts (and chapters), especially if someone keeps trying to kill you. (2) If your boyfriend points out that your family members are the most likely/only suspects, believe him. And, finally, (3) If you're trapped in a burning building and there's a window you can break and jump out of, do so. Don't stand around looking out of the window, confused, waiting for your boyfriend to show up outside and shout up to you "Break the window and jump!" Pretty much every woman on the North American continent knows and lives by these rules, and doesn't feel kindly towards fictional characters who don't. And read some of Ms. Graham's other books, they're much better.
