Hope Dunne is content with her life, finding serenity and beauty through the lens of her camera. She isn't looking for a man or excitement. But things change when she accepts a last minute assignment in London, photographing one of the world's most celebrated writers.

To Hope's surprise, Finn O'Neill exudes warmth and a boyish charm. He courts her, whisking her away to his palatial, isolated Irish estate, weaving a tapestry of tales about his life.

Hope finds it all absolutely dizzying. But soon cracks begin to appear in his stories and suddenly Hope is both in love and suspicious. How many lies has he told? Is it possible that this kind, loving, attentive man is hiding something even worse?

Our customer reviews

This is the first Danielle Steel book I read and I liked it. The story is very hard and complicated, especially from the point of view of the main character. Suddenly she finds herself in a dominant and dangerous relationship and it will be very difficult to leave the guy. The author has tried to show to the reader the angst, doubts and loneliness of Hope in a successful way. How, despite loving Finn, she must move on and do what needs to be done. The problem i see is that the story is perhaps a little too predictable. Since we meet Finn it's easy to guess where the things are going and what will happen at the more
