When a rich gentleman finds a beautiful young woman lying in the snow, on the brink of death, he takes her back to his house and, when she has recovered, employs her as a maid. Immediately Elira realizes that Anthony Luther is no ordinary man and nothing about the house she now lives in is as it seems, for Anthony is a powerful wizard.
Inexplicably drawn together, they begin a tentative romance, but it’s not just Elira’s uncertainties and the rules of upper-class society which drive a wedge between them; rivalries and a precious family heirloom, a priceless necklace of unforeseen power handed down through generations, threaten not only the couple’s happiness, but also their lives and the safety of the people around them.
Elira is a young woman who finds herself without a job, when her previous employer makes advances. Homeless, she collapses in the snow and almost dies. She is rescued by Anthony Luther, a rich gentleman who brings her to his home and offers her a job. But Anthony is no ordinary man, he is a wizard. The two begin a relationship but can they ever be together?
Elira is a great character. Despite the time period and the fact that she is a servant, she is quite wilful and independent. You don't know how to take Anthony at first, he flirts with Elira and she is worried that the situation will end up like her previous job, but she is attracted to him which is obvious from the start. The two characters were well developed and I thought it was very well written. I would definitely recommend this book and I think this author has a great future.
