Since his wife's death, world-famous author Ford Newcombe has lived a solitary life, void of creativity -- or love. Then Jackie Maxwell tears down the walls of his isolated world with her sassy wit and fierce intelligence. Ford's heart is touched by his vivacious assistant -- and his imagination sparked by her knowledge of a strange story that drives them to a small North Carolina town brimming with secrets. There, they will trace the mystery of a woman said to have loved the devil himself...and discover not only the truth about a crime from the past -- but a passion that holds the promise of a new life together.
Jude Deveraux, whose "enchanting and extraordinary" (Chicago Daily Herald) novels have enthralled millions, creates two of her most memorable characters in this powerful bestseller.

Slow going at first, but then the story started to pick up. Glad I didn't just put it down after the first couple pages.

Heartwarming,entertaining, endearing, and real....with characters you'll love. This is my second read and I enjoyed it quit well!

Another great read by Jude. her books are hard to put down. I love the way she puts a magical or supernatural spin to her stories. They add so much to her tales, but do not make them unrealistic in anyway. her stories of love are very believable and have great depth to them. They are not all about sex and predictable happy endings. Her characters really come alive. When finishing one of her books, I always want to run right out and get another one ASAP. One of my favorite authors.

I liked the way this book was written (switching back and forth between Jackie and Ford). It was a really interesting story but I prefer more realistic books. This book has a paranormal aspect.
