DESCRIPTION:

Mad Men meets real-life! Set against a glamorous life of splendor during the rise of the jet age of the 50s and 60s, this is a stirring tale of a voyage of self-discovery and ultimately release,

Living in various overseas postings, we follow Andrée Magnus’ path from the early seeds of self-recognition in Puerto Rico; to a blossoming in Venezuela; finding courage while living in Paris, France; and ultimately freeing herself from the bonds of an unhappy relationship. We see the scenery through her eyes, from the fetid tropics of Latin America, to the streets alive with art and revolution in France, to the chilling snows of northern Europe.

This novel is autobiographical, from a woman who truly lived her life completely, as a fine artist, poet and writer. Her perspectives and pathos are deep and stirring, the imagery bold and vivid.

Death runs rampant in Victorian London — with carriage accidents and cholera, childbirth and infantile diseases, and even from a nasty cut or influenza. Yet, for all that, when Lord Turner kissed his wife on an ordinary railway car, he never expected it would be a kiss goodbye. Nor could he ever imagine a cheerful woman with a sunny smile attempting to piece back together his shattered heart.

A devastated viscount…

Jameson Carlyle Turner’s life has been topsy-turvy, from illegitimacy to titled nobility, from a solitary gambler to a happily married husband. When bent steel and a horrific wreckage upend his world, he buries his beloved along with his heart and his happiness.

A lady who won’t take no for an answer…

Maisie Darrow understands grief all too well. She also knows the only way to move on with one’s life is to jump back in with both feet. Longing to help the distraught viscount, she falls irrevocably in love with him, only to have her hopes dashed by a mysterious letter from home.

When she sets out on a seemingly reckless and treacherous path, Jameson vows neither time, nor Maisie’s warm attention will wear down his grief-hardened walls, for he knows he cannot survive another blow.

Can she convince him to risk his heart again despite the swirling winds of uncertainty?

As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down.

Jess immediately makes plans to run away with the assistance of her childhood sweetheart and make her living running a hat shop.
