Landon blends the fantasy of unexpected true love with the harsh realities of loss in this latest offering that grows into a memorable and moving read. Her main couple’s relationship is deceptively complex, and their journey is as touching as it is unexpected. Though the plot is a bit slow to start, and overly complicated in places, Landon’s deeply sympathetic treatment of her hero’s addiction and his fascinating chemistry with his staunchly courageous bride will draw readers into this plot and keep them enthralled.

Griffin Blackmoor holds himself responsible for the death of his wife and young son and can’t escape the hell he witnessed in the Crimean War. When his best friend is killed by a bullet meant for Griff, his torture becomes consuming. Liquor can forestall his despair, but cannot make him forget his obligation to his dead friend — to care for the sisters he left behind. Lady Anne Carmichael realizes she has no choice but to marry, but the frightening truth is that the only man she desires is the one man she has sworn never to approach. Will Anne and Griff have the chance to save each other before the killer strikes again? (MONTLAKE, Oct., 332 pp., $12.95)
