If I'm not mistaken this is the first book Liz Carlyle published, which is unbelievable, to tell the truth!
The story: Elliot, marquis of Rannoch and not a particularly likeable person, rides off in a fury to ... um, fire (?) his mistress. Only, he gets lost in the rain, spots a house with warmly lit windows and decides to ask for shelter. When he is invited in he is drawn to the sense of family he feels when hearing and seeing the family's interaction, so when he's mistaken for someone else he doesn't disabuse them of that notion.

The house belongs to Evangeline van Artevelde, an artist who also paints portraits, and who thinks Elliot is her next assignment. They are immediately drawn to each other and Elliot finds himself acting in a way totally unlike him, soaking up the warmth and love of Evie and her family. Unfortunately things can't continue the way they are. Evie has secrets, Elliot wants to keep his real life at bay but that doesn't prove to be easy, and then there are the murders...
Like all her other subsequent novels, Liz Carlyle writes a rich story, filled with strong emotion, suspense, passion and love.
As usual this is an intense novel that packs a punch! I admit, I'm a devoted, slightly obsessed fan :-))

I am just another obsessed fan of Liz Carlyle's books. Usually, I don't have obsessions in this genre (I save it for the likes of Dorothy Dunnett! Now there is a writer!) but Ms Carlyle just happens to give us something for those times when we need to be 'taken in' to ourselves, as I prefer to put it.

The first reviewer has written a fine synopsis of the story and I also loved this book and am well on with my journey through Liz Carlyle books and I have quite a few waiting to be devoured.

I am so glad that I have found this author.

I really liked this story. I had read stories about other characters in the novel and it was great to retreive some of the characters.
I will definitely read this again on my next christmas holiday :)
