He invites her to stay with him on his property while she does research for her latest book.
I just checked me email and this is what I saw
And guess what?
Ding Ding Ding Ding!!!! Arielle got it right!!
It is indeed In The Midnight Rain by Ruth Wind
This is also one of my all time favourite romances and most definitely a keeper. If you haven't read, I HIGHLY recommend it!
Looking For The Past...
Ellie Connor is a biographer with a special talent for piecing together fragments of the past.Her latest project, though, promises to be her most challenging--and personal.Not only is she researching the life of a blues singer who disappeared mysteriously forty years ago, but Ellie is also trying to find the truth about the parents she never knew.The love child of a restless woman who died young and an anonymous father, Ellie has little to go on but a faded postcard her mother sent from a small East Texas town--the hometown of her latest subject.
Could Mean Finding Her Future
It is there that Ellie meets Blue Reynard, a man with deep roots and wide connections who may help her find answers.With a piercing gaze and cool grin, Blue is as sultry and seductive as the Southern night air.Beneath his charming surface, however, lies a soul damaged by loss.Despite her better judgment, Ellie finds herself irresistibly drawn to Blue’s passion--and his pain.But Ellie’s been lured by sweet talk and hot kisses before.How can she possibly stay with blue when every instinct tells her to run?
And just 'cause I already thought them up, here are the rest of the clues.
- She is visiting his town to write a biography on a blues singer that was last heard from in over 40 years ago.
- He falls for the heroine but is afraid because of what he's already lost
- The author also writes for Harlequin and still writes single title books but under a different name.
- She wrote some excellent historicals in the 90's under the name Barbara Samuel
If we got to the last clue I figured someone would have guessed for sure *g*
