Marianne Willman is one of the most enchanting storytellers writing today, combining classic historical romance with a touch of suspense and a hint of the mystical. Her writing has been praised by Julie Garwood as "impossible to resist," and Nora Roberts declares that it "glows with romance, pulses with suspense and shimmers with magic." Now it's your turn to enter the enchanting world of Marianne Willman.

Lacey's Folly--a charming manor house, shrouded in magic and mystery, haunted by tales of hidden treasure, and legends of a bride who vanished 100 years ago on her wedding day.

Chloe Hartsell--a lonely and passionate woman, ripe for falling in love, and suddenly denied the promised inheritance of her beloved home.

Gideon Stone--the rakehell artist is intent on sellng his windfall inheritance--until he learns he must first find a husband for Chloe.

One hundred years before, a beautiful woman vanished on her wedding night, along with a fortune in jewels. Now her lovely portrait and baffling disappearance haunt Gideon's dreams.

Thrown together by fate, drawn together by passion, Gideon and Chloe are separated by his pride--and her secret. Then a woman appears--the very image of the bride lost to the night a century ago. Gideon must choose between his dream image and the flesh-and-blood woman who can teach him the true meaning of love. And Chloe must risk everything, to win all she holds dear.

Additional Information

Chloe has lived her life as a devoted nurse and housekeeper to an elderly gentleman. So it's particularly disappointing when his death brings a new heir, the brooding artist Gideon Stone, to the estate. He hopes to sell the estate to pay off his many debts. But soon Gideon becomes enchanted with the manor and obsessed with the legend of the lost bride who disappeared from the manor on her wedding night 100 years before. When a mysterious woman shows up knowing nothing but her first name, Chloe realizes that she must uncover the mystery of this woman before she loses the man she has recently come to love.
