Evan Hughes leaves her Connecticut home to travel to England after her grandmother's death. Following her grandmother's advice, she takes a job at Harte's department store and soon discovers that her biological grandfather was one of Emma Harte's sons. As Evan falls in love with distant cousin Gideon Harte, she is welcomed into the Harte family, but she fears telling her father the truth about his parentage.
Paula O'Neill, Emma's granddaughter, is now the family matriarch and successfully runs Harte's, along with her daughters, Tessa and Linnet. When Tessa's young daughter is kidnapped by her estranged husband, the Harte family must band together to ward off potential tragedy.
Once again, readers will get swept up in the lives and loves of the Harte family. The characters are beautiful, exciting and fabulously wealthy, inhabiting a world that many only dream about and luring readers into their fantasy lives. (Jan., 496 pp., $24.95)
