At age twelve, Cassandra Madden fell in love with Jefferson Ames, a young man she met at one of her mother's business conferences. Cassandra held on to this unrequited love in order to cope with her isolated heart and the pain of a cold mother. When she grows up, Cassandra travels to Virginia and becomes the nanny to now-widowed Jeff's young daughter. But the object of her desire barely notices her.

Jude Deveraux is the author of thirty-one New York Times bestsellers, including Wild Orchids, Forever and Always, Forever . . ., The Mulberry Tree, The Summerhouse, Temptation, and A Knight in Shining Armor. She lives in North Carolina.From Publishers Weekly:
Romance titan Deveraux (Someone to Love, etc.) packs her latest with jagged surprises, but the pieces fail to fall together satisfyingly. At age 12, Cassandra Madden has been in love with also 'tween Jefferson Ames, whom she meets on a business trip with her mother. After college, Cassie moves to Jeff's hometown of Williamsburg, Va., and eventually becomes nanny to widower Jeff's daughter, Elsbeth. Jeff treats Cassie as part of the family, but reserves his romantic feelings for gorgeous Skylar, who despises Cassie and ignores Elsbeth. When she hears gunshots next door and finds aging film star Althea Fairmont lying prone but unharmed, she and the famous Althea become friends. As Cassie begins to archive Althea's Hollywood memorabilia, she uncovers Althea's hidden history and is drawn, with Jeff, into a dangerous web of secrets, lies and murder. The story has moments of humor and romantic chemistry, but they do little to salvage the unruly plot. (May)
