Madeleine Sutter was once the belle of the ball at the popular resort town of Misty Lake, New York. But as the sole survivor of the community’s worst tragedy, she’s come under suspicion. Longing for the life she once enjoyed, she accepts a rare social invitation to the event of the season. Now she will be able to show everyone she’s the same woman they’d always admired—with just one hidden exception: she awoke from the accident with the ability to heal.

Doctor Jace Merrick has fled the failures and futility of city life to start anew in rural Misty Lake. A man of science, he rejects the superstitious chatter surrounding Maddie and finds himself drawn to her confidence and beauty. And when she seduces him into a sham engagement, he agrees to be her ticket back into society, if she supports his new practice—and reveals the details of her remarkable recovery. But when his patients begin to heal miraculously, Jace may have to abandon logic, accept the inexplicable—and surrender to a love beyond reason…

This has been an exquisite read for me!

Maddie has been an outcast on her own town for the past three years, ever since a terrible wagon accident in which four girls were found dead. Among them, Maddie, too. But to the doctor and the whole town's surprise, she didn't stay dead. In fact, when she suddenly opened her eyes, everyone assumed she was resurrected. But, her severely injured and broken leg would leave her unable to walk again, according to the doctor's sayings. So, when she started walking again, through her own struggling, everyone started believing that miracles don't happen twice, and all this must have been the work of the devil.

In a small town like that the rumors spread fast, and everyone started viewing Maddie as a nuisance to the peacefulness of their town. She lost her friends, her fiance and her place in the small society.

But Maddie, has an even deeper secret. Ever since she awoke after this accident, she has been able to heal other beings.

When Jace, the new doctor of the town finally arrives, is immediately intrigued by the young woman, even after asking around and realizing how infamous she is. Her rare case intrigues him even more, but his effort on getting direct information from her has been futile.

With the wedding ball of one of her friends approaching, one where Maddie has been invited to, she must find an escort so that she won't have to face the pity of her neighbors.

She then decides to strike a deal with Jace: She will offer him more information about the accident and help him set up his new office, while he will pretend to be her fiance and escort her to the ball.

But, what they never counted on affecting them, was the intense attraction between them. And, Maddie's deep secret, too!

This was a very passionate novel with a very intriguing story!

Maddie was a very strong young woman, who, taking into account all the tragedies she had to go through, that changed her life to the core, managed to cope in a much better way than anyone would have anticipated!

Jace was a bold young man who completely had my attention since the very beginning.

The author's easily flowing writing style made the novel an even better read, I completely enjoyed.

All in all, 4,5 stars to a unique and passionate read 
that narrated the story of one particularly brave and gifted heroine.
