Waltz With a Stranger Book Blurb:
Crippled after a riding accident, shy heiress Aurelia Newbold shuns Society–until a dashing stranger draws her into a secret waltz and awakens desires she has long thought dead. After a year abroad to regain her health, she comes home to find the one man she’s been dreaming of–now an earl–engaged to the one woman she would never betray: her beloved twin sister.
One night James Trelawney took pity on a girl he saw as a wounded bird. Now the Earl of Trevanan, he is not prepared for the vibrant woman who returns to London, intent on reclaiming her life. Nor is he prepared for his growing desire for that woman–especially after he has proposed marriage to her dazzling twin.
As the scene shifts from London’s glittering ballroom to Cornwall’s windswept coast, forbidden desires resurface, and inhibitions begin to melt beneath the summer sun. But even as James struggles to resolve his feelings for both sisters, the secret that killed his predecessor reaches out from the grave to threaten his life–and that of the woman he loves.
