Description:

When the lovely Annabelle from California takes on a job in York, England as a companion for an embittered, paralyzed Chris MacCloud who has lost his wife in an accident, she finds herself strangely drawn to his savage sensuality. But she must overcome not only his deep mistrust of love, which is inflamed by her uncanny resemblance to his late wife, but also withstand the wicked relatives who are scheming for his fortune.

Little does Annabelle know that at the end of this twisted trail of passion and deceit lies, in the words of a song she has written, “what I’m looking for….it’s worth every breath.” Can Chris forget his past, can Annabelle win his trust and teach him to love again? And can she herself learn to forgive and forget?
