Summary
"Paulette Hamilton loves working in her family's London bookshop. Strong-willed and sharp-witted, she hopes to one day open a second shop, and she won't let romantic follies get in her way. But the best laid plans have never met such a handsome Irish widower with a dubious history. Declan Reeves came to London with his young daughter to escape his life in Ireland. Though he's vowed to never marry again, he quickly falls prey to the tempting blue eyes of fair-haired Paulette. But her family is suspicious of his past, and before he can make her his wife, he must travel to Ireland to vindicate his reputation. Torn between honour and desire, Declan and Paulette launch a perilous search for the truth. Whether it lies in the past or a present beyond their control, it's their only hope for a future together"--P. [4] of cover

Review
O’Riley (a pen name for Kathleen Milmore) expertly blends mystery and romance in the fourth Hamilton Sisters Victorian-era romance (after It Happened One Christmas). Paulette Hamilton, one of five daughters, is perfectly content to remain single and work in her family’s London bookstore, but when Declan Reeves, Lord Cashelmore, walks in with his young daughter, Mara, she feels an instant connection to him. Declan’s wife died in a horrible fire, and he is a suspect in her death; Mara has been mute since she witnessed her mother’s death. Declan and Paulette slowly venture toward romance despite their mutual aversion to marriage. Paulette’s forthrightness and independence are refreshing in a Victorian heroine, and O’Riley’s attention to detail imbues each character with realism. The heart of the story is the magnetic attraction between Paulette and Declan as they search for the cause of the fire that destroyed his life and threatens their future. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Nov.) --Staff (Reviewed July 16, 2012) (Publishers Weekly, vol 259, issue 29, p)
