Small-town Connecticut art teacher Ellie James finds the intense connection she’s longing for when she meets Will Hastings, a seductive Englishman with an alluring darkness. But just days later, her sister and grandmother are murdered, and she must confront the unthinkable: is Will a man she can trust, a murderer—or both?
In a desperate move after surviving a near-fatal attempt on her life, she takes her young niece Lissie and flees to England with Will. There, passion becomes indomitable obsession, London paparazzi call her by another name, and assassins of a secret society close in as the stunning truth about Ellie’s family is exposed. When Will suddenly disappears after slipping an engagement ring on her finger, she must find the strength to elude assassins and disentangle herself from the haunting lies she’s lived for twenty-seven years. Who is Ellie James?
