True love can last an
eternity … but immortality comes at a price.
On the midnight shift at a hospital in rural Maine, Dr. Luke
Findley is expecting another quiet evening of frostbite and the occasional
domestic dispute. But the minute Lanore McIlvrae—Lanny—walks into his ER, she
changes his life forever. A mysterious woman with a past and plenty of dark
secrets, Lanny is unlike anyone Luke has ever met. He is inexplicably drawn to
her … despite the fact that she is a murder suspect with a police escort. And
as she begins to tell her story, a story of enduring love and consummate
betrayal that transcends time and mortality, Luke finds himself utterly
Her impassioned account begins at the turn of the nineteenth
century in the same small town of St. Andrew, Maine, back when it was a Puritan
settlement. Consumed as a child by her love for the son of the town’s founder,
Lanny will do anything to be with him forever. But the price she pays is
steep—an immortal bond that chains her to a terrible fate for all eternity. And
now, two centuries later, the key to her healing and her salvation lies with
Dr. Luke Findley.
