A lonely stretch of highway, a handsome stranger, and a long-kept secret that could wreck everything.

Linden Adair is a talented makeup artist on the New York Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera, creating the hideous scar for the actor who plays the phantom every night. But nobody knows the deep scars Linden carries after the divorce from her husband, Mark Denly—who is the famous director of Phantom.

Why didn’t somebody ever tell her that marrying your director was a bad idea, especially when he has a wandering eye?

Desperate to get away after enduring several years of heartache, Linden takes a cross-country trip to visit her best friend in Seattle. While driving on a deserted stretch of highway late at night, she hits a deer and crashes the rental car into a gully outside of Snow Valley, Montana.

A devastatingly handsome stranger with a tow truck rescues Linden and her smashed vehicle, but when she catches sight of him in the light, she’s shocked. Anton Baldwin possess a terrible scar on his face—just like the phantom she created every night at the theater.

But Anton is hiding more than the truth behind his scar, and during a whirlwind week while being recruited for a television show being filmed in Snow Valley, the secrets of this enigmatic man turn her world upside down.

When Anton helps Linden open up to the world around her, Linden wonders if the small town of Snow Valley might hold the magic she needs to heal the scars on her broken heart.

Rating: Mild. Mild kissing.

    Sweet clean romance and a quick read. I can see why people might have problems with this being a love/attraction at first sight kind of story but I kinda found it believable. I was rooting for the two main characters and was happy that they received the support of Linden’s mother and friend despite the whirlwind romance. Both Linden and Anton have scars that they are dealing with one way or another though they perhaps made a bigger deal of them than was needed. I mean in today’s society, being divorced and having an unfaithful ex isn’t uncommon. She seemed to feel guilt about it or something. Or perhaps the scar just wasn’t healed enough so she was over worried about revealing her past. It had been a heartbreaking past to say the least.

    I think my one complaint about the story was I would have loved to see Linden’s ex find out about her new life situation. She finds true love and a new job that pays much better than he paid her. I’m just a little vindictive that way. He was a total jerk and I would have liked to see him suffer a little more. Plus I wanted her to slap his face when he kissed her to try to make her stay and work instead of leave on vacation.

    I don’t know if this is marketed as Christian Lit but there is an undercurrent of religion through the book. God has a plan for us and we end up where we need to be….

    Sex: some kisses
