Publisher's Summary

When a mysterious stranger arrives in Shady Trees, things go quickly awry: Clocks stop, small children insist they’ve spotted UFOs, and the prim and proper schoolteacher begins indulging in abduction fantasies. One night in quiet, bucolic Shady Trees, two children witness a startling occurrence: A giant silver figure engulfed in green light emerges from the darkness before them, picks up a dead bird, and brings it back to life. The next day at school, Miss Lise Anderson hears her students buzzing about the sighting and dismisses it as a childish rumor. Then she encounters handsome geologist, Stephen Gage. Unable to ignore the electricity coursing between them, the buttoned-up Lise seeks out the stranger.

When two precious artifacts go missing from the town museum, locals accuse Gage. Lise emerges as his only advocate. Is her attraction to him clouding her judgment? After Gage arrives at her home unexpectedly during a storm, and takes her against her will to the hills, she realizes she’s begun a risky erotic game with a man as dangerous as he is desirable.

    "Why O why did I like this so much??"

    I had never heard of this author before, found out that this was first published in 1990 but I thought I would just take a chance and, now that I've finished it, I'm so glad that I did.

    It was a light thoroughly entertaining and intriguing listen that kept you guessing right up til the end about the who and the what and the why's. Sparks flew (literally) when the two met and there was a build up of passion between them but neither of them could totally trust each other, coupled with accidents, misunderstandings and a lot of misguided prejudice initially stopped the two from becoming lovers in this very enjoyable engaging plot. There was eventually a frantic 'ravishing' of each other which wasn't too explicit.

    Yes it was unbelievable and, quite honestly, it left me with more questions than answers, but despite these flaws, it was a tender bitter sweet love story that totally had me hooked.

    Worth a credit? Yes definitely but this won't be for everyone (this is just one of those books that defies nature and left me with a 5 star smile at the end) - so if you can overlook all your 'mental questions' and the discrepancies that the plot raises - then you will be rewarded with a gripping love story - but please don't blame me if you don't.
