The Hidden Heart
By Laura Kinsale
For years, Lady Tess
Collier has explored the many mysteries of the world with her natural
scientist father. Her carefree lifestyle provided her an unlimited
supply of adventure. When her father succumbed to yellow fever he
made her promise on his deathbed that she would return to London.
After his passing, she kept her word and returned to a home she
hadn’t seen in ten years. Locked deep inside her soul, her
spirit calls out to return to the wilds of the jungle.
Gryphon Frost is hired to bring Tess back to England and to guard
her against the evils that may threaten a young beautiful woman.
His duty will end when he finds her a suitable husband. There are
many suitors who pursue the fair maiden’s hand but none are
worthy in his eyes. Each day he spends in her company his heart
is drawn closer to falling in love. He knows this love can never
be explored, for his past threatens to reveal itself and unleash
secrets that would destroy them both.
one of my all time favorite romance authors. With every book I read
of hers, I fall more in love with her addictive writing style. This
amazing author writes with such an emotional flare that it literally
sky rockets all the other competition. Art such as she is able to
create is a priceless treasure. Very highly recommended.
