Andrea Kane takes "intrigue and passion to new heights," says Rendezvous, and this breathtaking new novel is no exception. With her trademark depth and emotion, the bestselling author spins the suspenseful tale of two cousins so alike even their own family mistakes them, so enmeshed in a web of deceit that their very lives are at risk.... As children, identical cousins Anastasia and Breanna Colby swore always to protect each other. Now that Anastasia's beloved parents have died, she has come to live with Breanna...and Breanna's father, whose raging temper has locked his daughter into a life of fear. What is more, Anastasia soon realizes that her uncle is involved in a sinister scheme that places both young women in deadly danger. Fearing most of all for her cousin, Anastasia turns to the only help she can think of, the man who holds the reins to her considerable fortune -- the fascinating, enigmatic Damen Lockewood, Marquess of Sheldrake. From the moment Anastasia and Damen meet, blazing passion flares between them. But in the face of overwhelming peril -- and threats on Anastasia's life -- thoughts of love cannot be indulged. Not unless the mystery that entraps them is solved will they at last be able to pursue the future their feelings command them to share. But is the danger stalking them really gone?

About the author (1999)

Andrea Kane is one of the rising stars of women's fiction, garnering an enviable reputation for crafting incomparable historical romances. Andrea's most recent successes are The Theft and The Music Box, which appeared on numerous bestseller lists and followed in the suspenseful footsteps of her Black Diamond series. Her growing list of devout readers applaud her passion for romance and share in her realization that "as a child, I was an incurable romantic, a believer in fairy tales where happily-ever-after reigned supreme and true low conquered all. Everyone said I would outgrow it. I never did."

Fortunately, Andrea continues to delight us with rich characters and exhilarating stories -- her own special combination of romance and suspense. She lives in New Jersey with her husband Brad, daughter Wendi, parakeet Ariel, and Maltese dog Rascal (the canine hero of Samantha), where she is busily creating The Silver Coin, the spellbinding sequel to The Gold Coin.
