Description

Deepest winter. An isolated island off the coast of Maine. A man. A woman. Puppets. (Yes, puppets...) And...A mysterious house looming over the sea ...He's a reclusive writer whose imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. Annie couldn't be more ill prepared for what she finds when she reaches Moonraker Cottage or for the man who dwells in Harp House, the mysterious mansion that hovers above the cottage from a wind-blown cliff. When she was a teenager, he betrayed her in a way she can never forget or forgive. Is he the villain she remembers or has he changed? Her head says no. Her heart says yes. It's going to be a long, hot winter.show more

Review quote

"Details of smalltown New England life round out this powerfully successful homage." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "realistically quirky yet all too relatable characters, polished writing, tart humor, and an abundance of potent sexual chemistry. [...] another romance to treasure from one of the genre's superstars, and proof positive that good things come to those readers who wait." -- Booklist (starred review) "Heart-wrenching and uplifting, with witty dialogue, emotional depth, and details that give substance and texture to an already entertaining, engrossing story." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "In a stunning change of pace, Phillips reveals a brilliant flair for the gothic as she channels the Brontes, Daphne du Maurier, Victoria Holt, and Phyllis Whitney [...] An unforgettable, deliciously spicy romance that readers won't want to put down." -- Library Journal (starred review)show more
