Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for Julie Klassen

"Regency romance with secrets, hidden rooms, and of course, romance. . . . Julie Klassen has hit this one out of the ballpark."--
RT Book Reviews

"Jane Austen meets Victoria Holt in Christy Award-winning Klassen's latest deliciously spooky and sweetly romantic historical."
--Booklist

"Klassen has combined all kinds of reader-favorite elements in this mystery romance. . . . A gem for Regency and inspirational readers alike."--
Bookpage

Sophie Dupont assists her father in his studio, keeping her own artwork out of sight. In private, she paints the picturesque north Devon coast, popular with artists--including handsome Wesley Overtree, who seems more interested in Sophie than the landscape.

Captain Stephen Overtree is accustomed to taking on his brother Wesley's responsibilities. Near the end of his leave, he is sent to find his brother and bring him home. Upon reaching Devonshire, however, Stephen is stunned to learn Wesley has sailed for Italy and left his host's daughter in serious trouble.

Stephen feels duty-bound to act, and strangely protective of the young lady, who somehow seems familiar. Wanting to make some recompense for his own past failings as well as his brother's, Stephen proposes to Miss Dupont. He does not offer love, but marriage "in name only" to save her from scandal. If he dies in battle, as he fears, she will at least be a respectable widow.

Desperate for a way to escape her predicament, Sophie finds herself torn between her first love and this brooding man she barely knows. Dare she wait for Wesley to return? Or should she elope with the captain and pray she doesn't come to regret it?
