In a time long ago, in a land under siege, the fury of
revolt pushed a knight and a lady of the manor into a
secret, forbidden loveuntil treachery destroyed it
all in a fiery cataclysm that shattered what could have
been . . .
Heiress to a powerful family empire, jewelry designer
Jillian Llewellyn is envied by women, desired by men and
fiercely protected by her loyal, gregarious family. Since
her husband's death a year ago, Jillian has withdrawn,
focusing only on her work. But this yuletide season,
something unimaginable is going to shatter her safe world,
drawing her into a web of danger and desire.
At the center of the storm is a handsome stranger, Robert
Marston, the new silent partner at Llewellyn Enterprises.
Dark, powerful and disturbing, he is as formidable as he
is intimidating . . . as mysterious as he is familiar. The
connection she feels is bone deepas if they've known
each other before.
As the Llewellyn family celebrations move from Manhattan
to their elegant Connecticut farmhouse, several bizarre
accidents strike Jillianand a chilling fear that
someone wants to harm her begins to grow. She recognizes
this terror from a memory she can't explain or understand.
But who at Llewellyn Enterprises would want her dead? A co-
worker? A member of her own close-knit family? Against her
will, she is drawn to Robert, unsure whether he is her
salvation . . . or her damnation. Perhaps he is both, but
only he can prevent the nightmare from happening again.
As the ghosts of the past are resurrected, Jillian and
Robert must unlock the timeless secrets of passion and
betrayal . . . clashing once again in a drama of murder
and intrigue. Three hundred years ago, two lovers were
damned by the fires of treachery. In another lifetime, the
man Jillian loved tried but failed to save her. Now, in
this season of magic and miracles, two lost souls are
being given a second chance.
