An Englishwoman falls for a handsome intruder in this “emotional, compelling and atmospheric” historical romance by the author of The Thief’s Daughter (Chicks, Rogues and Scoundrels).
Cornwall, 1861. Beth Jago is an independent seamstress living in her own remote cottage in Cornwall’s River Valley. She has what appears to be an idyllic life—but appearances can be deceiving. Lately, Beth has been receiving mysterious threats from an unknown outsider. So when she finds a strange man in her home, she acts swiftly to protect herself. One frying pan to the head knocks the intruder out cold—and nearly kills him. Worst of all, the blow seems to have robbed the handsome stranger of his memory.
Afraid he might die, Beth reluctantly nurses him back to health. Yet can she trust the man with no name who has entered her life? Or is he as dangerous as his nightmares suggest? As they grow closer, the threats become more severe. Perhaps they are somehow linked to the man with no past. Or perhaps the real danger is still outside waiting . . . and watching them both.
