A poignant and moving work
on January 15, 1998
In 1875, with the death of her odious brother, Lady Nevon finally can publicly recognize her bastard nephew, Bryce Lyndley. For twenty-three long years, she has clandestinely supported Bryce in his endeavors, hiding it from her brother who refused to recognize the lad as his off-spring. Her efforts have been rewarded with Bryce being a highly regarded barrister. However, she was never able to lavish as much affection as she wanted to on him for fear her brother would learn all and cut the child off with nothing. Now she wants to shower the thirty-one year old man with love and affection, and introduce him to her ward, Gabrielle Denning, who suffered a childhood trauma.
Bryce and Gaby are emotionally as far apart as any two beings could ever be. Bryce is pure logic, using his brain to resolve everything. Gaby is pure heart, pouring love into her endeavors. When they meet, sparks fly and love flourishes. However, before this deserving couple can find a lasting relationship, they must uncover the mystery behind the tragedy that radically changed Gaby's life thirteen years ago.
Fans of historical romantic suspense know that some of the best books of the genre come from that awesome author, Andrea Kane. Her latest, novel, THE MUSIC BOX, is her usual brilliant fiction, filled with the mark of Kane: a fast-paced, action filled intrigue, starring two wonderful, but wounded characters who touch the reader's heart. This novel is must reading for all romance fans.
