Publisher's Summary

Gifted pianist Valentine Windham, youngest son of the Duke of Moreland, has little interest in his father's obsession to see his sons married, and instead pours passion into his music. But when Val loses his music, he flees to the country, alone and tormented by what has been robbed from him.

Grieving Ellen Markham has hidden herself away, looking for safety in solitude. Her curious new neighbor offers a kindred lonely soul whose desperation is matched only by his desire, but Ellen's devastating secret could be the one thing that destroys them both.

Together, they'll find that there's no rescue from the past, but sometimes losing everything can help you find what you need most.

Contains mature themes.

Getting tired

Any additional comments?

I have listened to the previous books in this series and enjoyed them very much. I found this book tiring. I don't know if I have just burned out on the series or if this book is really not so good - I think it is the latter. The heroine left me cold. I did not find her appealing and I thought there was a lack of chemistry between the H/h. Maybe this was just a little bit of a dud and the rest of the series will be as good as the first books in the series. This book can easily be skipped. I will mention that the reader is excelent.

Excellent series

I loved this book. It has an entertaining and unique storyline that takes twists and turns I had not anticipated. I like series that have continuity of characters throughout.
Our narrator, James Langdon, has a lovely voice and gives each character their personality.

loved it!! Awesome narration.

A very moving story plot.. and the characters are very engaging, though towards the ending I was getting very disappointed with the heroin, the author could have given here more guts. her character was kind of left wanting. otherwise it's a good read.
