Overview

He can see into her past...

He can see into her secrets...

He can see into the deepest desires of her heart...

Only in his dreams has Burke Grisham, the once dissolute Earl of Thornwald, seen a lady as exquisite as Catherine Snow. Now, standing before him at last is the mysterious beauty whose life he has glimpsed in strange visions-whose voice called him back from death and the shimmering radiance beyond, on the bloody field of Waterloo. But she is also the widow of the friend he destroyed: the one woman who scorns him; the one woman he must possess.

Catherine detests Lord Thornwald as the handsome daredevil who led her estranged husband into a decadent life and a reckless death in battle. Yet now, even as she resists his strange connection to her mind, she years for him to conquer her heart. But does this infamous rake think her his next plaything? Or is Burke truly sent, as he vows, to save Catherine from a danger only he can see-and sweep her up in a love born of eternal light?

Only in his dreams has Burke seen a lady as exquisite as Catherine. Now, standing before him at last is the mysterious beauty whose life he has glimpsed in strange visions--whose voice called him back from death, and the radiance beyond, on the bloody field of Waterloo. But she is also the widow of the friend he destroyed, the one woman who scorns him, the one he must have. Original.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Burke Grisham, Earl of Thornwald, is the cad who organized a party overlooking the droll battle of Waterloo. Finally deciding to help, Burke drives his carriage toward the battlefield, his friend Alfred at his side. Alfred is mortally wounded and begs Burke to take care of his wife, Catherine. After Burke himself is mortally wounded and, as is to be expected, goes toward the light. He is drawn back to earth, however, by the entreaties of a woman who begs him to help her. During the year in which Burke recuperates, he continues to envision the same woman. Imagine Burke's surprise when he finally gets around to visiting Alfred's wife, who turns out to be the woman in his visions. Far from being an ethereal angel, Catherine Snow is being made a drudge of by Alfred's selfish mother and sisters. She already resents Burke for having engineered Alfred's downfall years ago, but she thinks him mad when she hears the account of his visions. Burke extends his visit in order to understand his visions while much to Catherine's chagrin and Alfred's mother's delight as she furiously tries to negotiate a match between Burke and one of her daughters. This downtrodden heroine could easily have been a caricature but Dawson Smith (Fire at Midnight) has given her the depth to match her well-plotted story. (Dec.)

Meet the Author

Barbara Dawson Smith: Call me a chronic dreamer, but I love a good book. Like everyone else, I get caught up in carpooling for my two daughters, taking out the garbage, and paying the bills. Reading is my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the reward for a long day's work. Even after writing fourteen romance novels of my own, I still love to escape into the magical world of another writer's imagination.

    A Great Cinderella Story

    This story reminds me of Cinderella where Catherine was treated like the lowly step daughter. I was so glad to see this end up happily ever after, and to see that Lorena/Peg get hers, after the way she treated Catherine. I was glad to see Burke hang in there with Catherine and finally end up marrying Catherine and Catherine actually end up having his children, and here father-in-law approve of their marriage. Read this book from cover to cover.
