From NYT bestselling author Patricia Rice—the first in a new contemporary romantic mystery series featuring her Malcolm/Ives family!

 


A lawman haunted by his past . . . a scientist haunted by her future.


 Samantha Moon arrives in Hillvale— population 325 lives and countless ghosts—in a fog as thick as the one circling the aging mountain town. Bereft of friends and family, money and memory, all she has to her name is a stray cat . . . but that's apparently enough for the people of Hillvale to take her in.

 L.A. investigator Chen Ling Walker's problem is too many memories. He's come to bury his tragic past in this remote California town, where his father vanished years before. Ever watchful, Walker sees how Sam's arrival disturbs the deceptive peace of Hillvale. Old bones lead to new death, stirring ancient fears and feuds.

 Sam will need Walker's help to uncover the truth of who she is and face the burden that brings. But how can he accept a reality that stretches beyond the borders of what he knows -- one that contains spirits, psychics, and imaginary voices—the weirdness that ruined his life before?

 And if they survive what lies ahead, will they find any way to make a future together?

  “Patricia Rice weaves magical love stories” - Mary Jo Putney, NY Times Bestselling Author

Discover the third book in NY Times bestseller Patricia Rice's Unexpected Magic historical romance series!

A blind marquess who detects lies... A spinster who hides behind deceit... Can even magic bring them together?

Scorned by suitors for her statuesque size, Harriet Stansbury bolts when her abusive stepfather begins negotiating with impecunious aristocrats to sell her for her dowry. When opportunity offers, she daringly takes a position in an eccentric household until she can claim her fortune.

Once a dashing rakehell, Duncan Ives, Marquess of Ashford lost his eyesight in a murderous assault. Abandoned by his fiancee, unable to ride the vast fields of his estate, he vents his frustration on political reform. On impulse, he hires the intriguing smoky-voiced Harriet even though he knows she's lying--like him--with almost every word she speaks. 

At first Harriet is a godsend, oddly anticipating what he needs and abating his worst rages. But when her stepfather accuses Duncan of ruining her, the scandal threatens everything he's salvaged from the wreckage of his life. For the sake of his country, Duncan agrees to marriage. With her secret gift of empathy, Harriet isn't so certain. She's falling in love with the impossible marquess, but dare she risk her wounded heart for a man who can't love her? And can Duncan learn to trust a woman whose voluptuous curves paralyze his good sense, but who is far more than she seems?
