Since her husband's death last year, though she hates
hearing this, jewelry designer Jillian Llewellyn lives and
breathes Llewellyn Enterprises. In fact she's so engrossed
in producing this year's Yuletide winner, Jillian has not
even met the company's newest partner Robert Marston.
Following a personal tradition that she has done for
years on Halloween, Jillian and her long time friend and
her administrative assistant Connie goes Christmas
shopping. However, unbeknownst to the designer, this is
the beginning of a personal nightmare. Accidents start to
happen and bad dreams commence to haunt Jillian. Somehow
Robert seems to always be there to help her. He claims her
family wants her out of the way insisting he is heeding the
advice of the paranormal species, a book, and other
objects. Surprisingly even as he frightens her, Jillian
feels comfortable and perhaps in love with Robert in a déjà
vu way, but wonders if he is the cause of the danger that
threatens to engulf her at any moment.
Heather Graham is a sure shot for providing the
audience with the best in romantic suspense. Her most
recent novel, A SEASON FOR MIRACLES, uses paranormal
elements to tell two stories, one from the past that
parallels the second in the present. Though tricky to move
back and forth through the (p)ages, Ms. Graham easily
navigates the peril of disruption through a strong story
line containing a consistent and veritable cast including a
likable heroine in peril. Readers have quite a novel to
luxuriate with while escaping the frantic pre-Christmas

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 love -- until 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her husband's death a year ago, Jillian has withdrawn,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 deep -- as if they've known
each other before.
As the Llewellyn family celebrations move from Manhattan to
their elegant Connecticut farmhouse, several bizarre
accidents strike Jillian -- and 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.
