About This Book

She isn’t accustomed to attention. He isn’t used to being denied. Romance is never simple, but when worlds collide in this classic novel from bestselling author Sally Goldenbaum, true love can seem unimaginable.
 
While playing the part of a glamorous contessa for a murder mystery weekend, Halley Finnegan finds herself in the arms of dashing baron Nick Harrington. For the first time in her life, Halley feels captivating, enchanting, a worthy companion to a wealthy, elegant man. But beneath the costume, Halley is just a nobody, while Nick remains a baron. After the festivities, the fantasy is over; Halley’s simply not in his class.
 
After Nick tracks down his mystery lady, Halley is sure that he’ll discover his mistake and run for the hills. Instead, he is all charm, teasing smiles, and gentle caresses, as if he never stepped out of character. How can she trust that this gentleman is the real Nick, and not just a part he plays? And how could Nick fall for a woman he wouldn’t have given the time of day a week before? Unless they start being honest with each other, Halley and Nick will lose each again—this time, forever.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Remember the Time, The Vow, This Fierce Splendor, Lightning That Lingers, Tall, Dark, and Lonesome, Dream Lover, and Legends.

    Murder in Merino
    A Seaside Knitters Mystery
    It’s autumn in Sea Harbor, and as the tourists leave, a mysterious guest arrives. When she’s implicated in a crime, the Seaside Knitters must quickly table their knitting project and search out a motif for murder.   Fall is usually a relaxing time in Sea Harbor, but it’s turning out to be a busy season for Izzy Chambers Perry. Not only is she helping the Seaside Knitters make a magnificent throw to celebrate the fortieth wedding anniversary of her aunt and uncle, but she and her husband are finally selling the cottage she lived in before she got married and had a darling baby girl. To Izzy’s surprise, newcomer Julia Ainsley seems determined to buy the home—although she’s never set foot inside.   But on the day of the open house, things take a dark turn. A body is uncovered in the cottage’s backyard. When the police find Julia’s name and phone number in the victim’s pocket, this slender thread of evidence makes her a person of interest. Soon the spotlight of suspicion widens to include old friends and town leaders as a tragic happening, long buried in the sleepy seaside town, is slowly brought to the surface.   Before the joyful anniversary celebration can be realized, the Seaside Knitters must work to unravel the real reason Julia Ainsley has come to their town—and the tangled and troubled ties from the past that bind friends and townsfolk together.   KNITTING PATTERN INCLUDED

An official investigation rules the death an accident. There are speculations of too many whiskey sours, a slippery wharf, a dark night...But Izzy and the Seaside Knitters smell something fishy.
