Book Description

March 4 2004
Fate, it seemed, had done its worst.

With his life in ruins, Richard Duke of Cleybourne, returned to his country estate to deal with the tragic loss he had suffered four years earlier. His plans, however, were interrupted by the arrival of Miss Jessica Maitland. The feisty, flame-haired governess had come to present her charge, Gabriella, as his new ward.

Until love exposed much more to the story.

As if their unwelcome presence weren't bad enough, Jessica also revealed that Gabriella was in danger. Someone was after the girl's fortune -- perhaps someone the duke knew only too well.

Now fate and a raging snowstorm have brought together an odd assortment of guests at Cleybourne Castle. And when murder strikes, Richard and Jessica must catch a killer and unravel a dark mystery, even as they are plunged into the most passionate mystery of all -- the secrets of the hidden heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 & 1/2 stars--this one REALLY needs the 1/2 star June 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was totally hooked with the prologue. Even though I discovered that this was the second in a series, I could not wait to read it.
Richard is a fabulous hero--very deep, emotional, and responsible, intelligent. His depression over his wife's & daughter's deaths leads him to contemplate suicide. But along comes brave, stalwart Jessica who, in her determination to protect Gabriella, is willing not only to battle his unwillingness to be the girls' ward, but also to bring him back from the brink of self-extinction. They are superb together.
Secondary characters run the gamut: Richard's sister-in-law Rachel (who stars in the next book), Jessica's ex-fiance, a Bow Street Runner, a mystery woman, and a murderous villain, among others. Several are not what they seem. The mystery is a bit convoluted, but nothing in it turned me off the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ June 21 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I adored this story. The hero and heroine are so cute. I love their confrontations and honesty with each other. The addition of several supporting characters helps keep the story moving and interesting. I love a gutsy heroine and Jessica delivers. She and Richard are the perfect duo and their love story sweeps you away.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Story April 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had waited for Richard's story, hoping Ms Camp would find someone to heal his wounded heart. I read this book in record time, I couldn't seem to put it down. Ms Camp has crafted a book that will renew your faith in love. Jessica is the perfect mate for the wounded Richard.
The tension between to the two builds through the whole book. With a wealth of background characters that will remind you of a old Charlie Chan movie. This is probably not the best book in the world but it is a fun read.
