An aristocrat hiding from her past, a doctor hiding from her grief, a journey that will be a danger to themselves… and their hearts!
War doctor Luciana Stanmore was not healed by the signing of the armistice last year. Unable to face returning to England without the lover the war took from her, she goes instead to seek comfort with her grandmother in Amsterdam, where the beautiful widow next door catches her eye.
If anyone discovers Therese de Seletsky's identity, it would be all over for her Russian aristocrat son. She lost her husband to the Bolsheviks and she'll do anything to keep Pavel safe, including denying her own need for music and love. When he breaks his arm playing, Therese risks accepting the help of her mysterious new neighbour, and ignores the tug of attraction between them.
An attempted kidnap of Pavel changes everything. Therese can only turn to Luciana, and England, to unlock the secret of why she's being targeted. Along the way, they draw closer, but how can they love when the pain of the past is a present threat?
A steamy girl next door lesbian story of yearning, hope, and new love after loss. HEA guaranteed.
