In der Ruhe hier und der atemberaubenden Landschaft hofft sie, alles vergessen zu können. Der Anfang ist allerdings nicht leicht. Gleich am ersten Tag verdreht sie sich das Bein und bleibt hilflos liegen. Nur dank eines Zufalles wird sie von Shane Hunter gefunden. Der Ranger, der in seiner Freizeit im Park fotografiert, ist hingerissen von der neuen Kollegin. Als er ihr Knie untersuchen möchte, entdeckt er entsetzt die vielen Narben auf ihrem Bein. Außerdem entgeht ihm nicht, dass Autumn panische Angst vor ihm zu haben scheint. Statt über die Hilfe glücklich zu sein, reagiert sie verstört und abweisend. Was ist nur mit ihr los? Mit viel Geduld und liebevoller Zuneigung schafft Shane es, Autumns Angst zu vertreiben. Wenn er nur wüsste, welches Geheimnis sie verbirgt, dann könnte er ihr sicher helfen. Doch da wird Autumn plötzlich von ihrer Vergangenheit eingeholt… [Quelle: Website der Autorin]

Pam Rosenthal: The Bookseller’s Daughter. Kensington Books / Brava 2004
* Inhalt: For Maire-Laure Vernet, serving as a scullery maid to a bored, aristocratic family isn’t without its dangers. Trying to avoid the unwelcome predations of the men and their guests is one. Keeping the china in one piece is another—especially when she finds herself serving Viscomte Joseph d’Auvers-Raimond. Only Marie-Laure knows that Joseph is also a smuggler of forbidden books who’d once fallen ill in her late father’s bookshop. That fateful meeting led to an innocent flirtation, fueled by a shared passion for books and ideas, but it had awakened desires that changed Marie-Laure forever. Joseph hasn’t forgotten the encounter either. His papers are littered with drafts of an erotic story about a girl who bears a distinct resemblance to the servant spilling his tea. While pleasuring the jaded women of the aristocracy, he’d pictured this girl with the coppery hair and the ink-stained fingers who could indulge both his intellect and his most feverish desires. Now, the only way to save her from becoming his family’s plaything is to seduce her first, and the lady seems extremely willing to comply… In the shadow of the French Revolution, two lovers embark on a seduction that plunges them into the heart of the aristocracy’s most vindictive, carnal games, where white-hot desire is exceeded only by deception, betrayal—and murder…
