Driven by ambition and power, Gavin Hunter had sacrificed everything that mattered--including his wife and child--to success. Now his son, Peter, needed him, and Gavin dropped everything to rush across the country to the desolate moors... Only to find that time had erased the boy's memory of his father.

Meet the Author

Lucy Gordon was born in England, where she still lives with her Italian husband. She wanted to be a writer all her life, and began by working on a British women's magazine. As a features writer, she gained a wide variety of experience.

She interviewed some of the world's most attractive and interesting men, including Warren Beatty, Richard Chamberlain, Charlton Heston, Sir Roger Moore, Sir Alec Guiness.

Single life was so enjoyable that she put marriage, and even romance, on the back burner, while she went about the world having a great time. Then, while on vacation in Venice, she met a tall, dark handsome Venetian, who changed all her ideas in a moment, and proposed on the second day. Three months later they were married—and still are. Her friends said a whirlwind romance would never last, but so far it's lasted nearly 30 years.

Lucy now claims to be an expert on one particular subject. Italian men are the most romantic in the world. They are also the best cooks.

After 13 years on the magazine Lucy decided that it was now or never if she was ever going to write that novel. So she wrote Legacy of Fire which became a Silhouette Special Edition, followed by another, Enchantment in Venice.

Then she did something crazy—gave up her job. Since then she has concentrated entirely on writing romances for Silhouette and Harlequin. Rico's Secret Child, out in March 2000, will be her 50th book.

A few years ago she and her husband returned to Venice and lived there for a couple of years. This proved the perfect base for exploring the rest of Italy, and she has given many of her books Italian settings: Venice (ofcourse), Rome,Florence, Milan, Sicily, Tuscany. She has also used the Rhine in Germany for Song of the Lorelei, for which she won her first RITA Award, in 1991. Her second RITA came in 1998, with His Brother's Child, set in Rome.

Eventually Lucy and her husband returned to England, where they now live. So far her settings have been European and her heroes mainly Italian or English, but recently she branched out with Blood Brothers, a Silhouette Desire (July 2000) cowritten with Anne McAllister, about an English lord and a Montana cowboy who swap lives. This will be followed by For His Little Girl, a Silhouette Special Edition, set in L.A., with her first American hero.
