Noelle is a curvy spinster who is drawn to her neighbor’s yard by his enchantingly beautiful piano music. She finds peace under his window and is attracted to the man behind the music.
Lord Gerard is cursed to walk the night and has been lonely for a long time. He finds solace in his haunting melodies- that is until he meets the fiery and courageous Noelle.
Passion sparks between them ending their terrible loneliness.
I really liked the interplay between the characters in this story. There was a lovely combination between witty persiflage and sizzling desire. I like Noelle’s daring and bravado. And who wouldn’t be smitten with a handsome, mysterious pianist who is very good with his hands?
I am also a fan of the underdog winning. Noelle is a sassy, plus sized spinster who captured the attention (and heart) of the dashing, blue-eyed Lord.
I will be keeping an eye out for other stories by Ms. Hussey in the future.
Lord Gerard is a gifted pianist who also happens to be a lord of the night. His lonely life is brightened and transformed when he meets Noelle, a plus-sized, and no nonsense spinster. The two celebrate the holidays with laughter, music, and a passionate affair, yet, can Noelle truly accept and love this creature of the nocturne?
