When the trawler White Gull was lost in a storm off the coast of Lobster Cove, Lisbeth O'Shea's husband, Declan, was lost along with it. At least that’s what Lisbeth believes until, a year later, she hears Declan’s voice in the night and sees him haunting the shore near their tiny cottage. Then she wonders… Has grief affected her mind? Or is someone playing a cruel trick? Town blacksmith Rab Sinclair has loved Lisbeth ever since he arrived in Lobster Cove. Lisbeth has never had eyes for anyone other than the charming, feckless Declan O’Shea, but Rab knows Declan was not faithful to Lisbeth. How can he convince the grieving widow she’s pinned her heart on the wrong man? And when dangerous secrets come to light, how can Rab protect the woman who means more to him than his own life?

Editorial Reviews

"This book was fantastic. It was steamy, funny, romantic, and just about any other emotion you can think of..."

-Steamy Book Mama

"Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading a book. It's more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while."

-Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews

"…It’s a very heartfelt story between Lily and Daniel and the intense love and passion they come to feel for each other."

-All Is Read

"The writing was fast paced, and HOT for an historical romance…with lots of chemistry between Daniel and Lily, and lots of fun on Lily’s part! There was the requisite drama, well played out. The characters were full of fun, laughter, mischief and of course some hot sexy!"

-Bound by Books

"Ms. Hardt creates magic…"

Synopsis

Wiltshire, England

Lady Lily Jameson is thrilled to attend a house party given by the Daniel Farnsworth, the Duke of Lybrook, but not because he’s the most eligible bachelor in the peerage. Her only interest is his famous art collection, which reputedly includes a painting by her favorite artist, Jan Vermeer.

Daniel, duke only by virtue of the untimely deaths of his father and older brother, wants nothing to do with his new duties. He’d rather continue his rakish ways. When he finds the lovely Lily sneaking around the property in search of his art collection, sparks fly. 

Despite her father’s wishes, Lily has no intention of marrying. She wants to travel the world to gain real life inspiration for her painting and writing. And what could be better worldly experience than a passionate affair with the notorious Duke of Lybrook? 

But circumstances may change the game and the players…and danger lurks, as well.
