Angela Howard, the spirited daughter of a village schoolmaster, will never forget her first provocative glimpse of Lord Clinton Meredith, the gorgeous, golden heir to magnificent Greystone Hall. But it is Clinton’s illegitimate brother, Hugh Bradford, who claims Angie’s innocence—and her heart. They share one glorious night before violence and tragedy separate them. Her heart shattered, Angie moves to London, where she meets the mercurial, sensual playwright James Lambert . . . and a portrait painter named Gainsborough vows to turn her into a legend.

But through the years of fame and glory and wealth and success beyond her wildest dreams, Angie is haunted by the man she loved and lost—a man who won’t rest until she is his again.

What I thought about the book: I don’t know who wrote the synopsis but they only skimmed some of the details in the book. Hugh and Clinton are cousins, not brothers.
Anyway, I really enjoyed this. There’s so much more to the story than what you get from the synopsis. We’re really following Angie’s life more than her romance with a single man. And she has lived quite a life! Great story, occasionally far-fetched but entertaining and emotional.
