Life is anything but perfect for Hallie Hartley, a young physical therapist who has given up nearly everything - even her love life - for her beautiful blonde stepsister, Shelly. Though Shelly's acting career has never taken off, she has certainly perfected the crocodile tears to get what she wants - which all too often means Hallie's boyfriends. When Hallie arrives home early from work one fateful day, she makes two startling discoveries that will turn her life upside down: Not only has a mysterious relative left Hallie a house on Nantucket, but Shelly has been trying to steal it. Desperate to put her troubles behind her, Hallie impulsively flies to Nantucket.
New trouble, however, has already settled into Hallie's guest room in the form of her newest client. Hallie is told that wealthy, young James Taggert has injured his leg in a skiing accident. Assuming that the devastatingly handsome man has led a charmed life, Hallie is surprised by Jamie at every turn throughout his recovery. His attentions draw her out of her shell - but he has a dark secret and is tormented by nightmares that only her presence can keep at bay. She suspects there's more to his injury than he's letting on.
On this gorgeous island rich in history, magic is everywhere, even in Hallie's own backyard. As Jamie's relatives arrive for a wedding gala, something wonderfully unusual is in the air. There's an aura of romance - enhanced by a pair of matchmaking ghosts and a colorful island legend. In their own little corner of the world, Jamie and Hallie unravel the timeless secrets of their own hearts - and a very special story of true love destined to last forever after.

It's our 20th Anniversary review, this one takes the cake!
I started reading Jude Deveraux books the summer I turned 16. My best friend and I were on vacation in Maine that summer, and we spent quite a few hours being captivated by the Black Lyon and the Angel series. I am now 36, a war veteran (female) and suffer from small scale PTSD. It is embarrassing to me to be less than I was, but this book was touching. I rushed out to buy the hardback and read it in one night. Then I drove it down to my best friend's house, loaned it to her, and bought the audiobook to commute to my job at the base hospital with everyday.
I have all the Jude Devereaux books that are published in print, even the collaborative ones. I would like to hear them all on audiobook, and the Narration was good as well, I am going to pull out the invitation right now and read it on this cold afternoon day in Alaska.
Thank you for years of wonderful entertainment, and sharing your gift of writing with the world. It takes me somewhere, makes me feel, and leaves me wanting more adventures.
