Sometimes I want a robust meal with multiple courses, a bottle of wine, and why yes I would like dessert at the end. Then there are times when I want small plates. I want options, lots of them, experiencing a variety of different tastes. For new historical romance, June is literally small plates month.
The Lady Who Saw Too Much by Thomasine Rappold
Cursed with prophetic visions and desperate to atone for a death she could have prevented, Gianna York swears she will never again ignore the chance to save a life. When she is hired by Landen Elmsworth to serve as companion to his sister, Gia repeatedly sees the image of her employer's lifeless corpse floating in Misty Lake. As subsequent visions reveal more details, Gia soon realizes her best chance to save this difficult man is by becoming his wife.
At first, Landen Elmsworth believes the fetching Miss York might be right for a meaningless dalliance, but he grossly underestimates her capacity for cunning and soon finds himself bound until death to a woman he may never be able to trust. Yet in the dark of their bedroom they discover an undeniable passion—and a capacity to forge their own destiny . . .
Rappold is a three-time RWA Golden Heart finalist and this is the second book in her Sole Survivor series. Set in upstate New York, Publisher’s Weekly calls it a “…page-turning romance, which is enhanced by the angst between the protagonists and the undercurrent of mysticism.”
