Stephanie Laurens has written her most romantic and powerful novel to date, one that dares tell The Truth About Love Gerrard Debbington, protégé and brother-in-law of Vane Cynster, is part of the charmed Cynster family circle. One of the most ...
ter family circle. One of the most eligible gentlemen in the ton, and its foremost artistic lion, there's only one offer he wants to accept -- the chance to paint the seldom-seen gardens of reclusive Lord Tregonning's Hellebore Hall. That chance is dangled before Gerrard, but to grasp it he must fulfill Lord Tregonning's demand that he also create a portrait of the man's daughter. Gerrard loathes the idea, but with no alternative, he agrees ... Only to discover that Jacqueline Tregonning inspires him as no other lady has.
But something is horribly wrong at Hellebore Hall and evil reaches out to ensnare Jacqueline, trapping her in a web of insidious whispers that paint her as a double murderess.
Convinced that Jacqueline is innocent, Gerrard is confident his portrait will open others' eyes to the truth he sees, but when a long-dead body is discovered in the gardens, Gerrard and she are running out of time. The days they spend together lead to nights of sweeping passion -- and Gerrard vows to move heaven and earth to protect the woman who, for him, personifies the truth about love.
