I have read every Secrets volume there is, and this one is by far my favorite. The stories range from poignant to funny, and the quality of writing seems to get better with every volume. My only complaint is the cover. The original silk and roses covers were much classier, particularly if you plan to read these books in public. I used to take my Secrets volumes to the gym, but not any more. (As I post this the cover image still isn't up, but it's similar to those for volumes 17 and 18: half naked hunky man clutched by a woman.)
Here's the cover copy:
What You Wish For by Saskia Walker
Lucy Chambers loves life in her historic house on the rugged Cornish coast. In fact, the only thing that would make her life better is if the sexy man who walked through her dreams every night was real. Under the watchful eye of the local white witch, Lucy is about to find out about the power of wishes and the vagaries of time. When she is sent two centuries into the past, she meets Cullen Thaine, the strong, mysterious man who'd also made a wish, a wish to spend one last night with an English wench before leaving for the colonies to pay a debt of honour. When Cullen confesses he longs to stay in his beloved Cornwall, will Lucy be able to make all their dreams come true?
