Gavin Stone is a wealthy man and never has a problem finding women to accompany him on the dance floor or the bedroom, but there's something different about Gavin. His eyes are too bright, his skin is too fair and he keeps strange hours. Angela Elliott is young and beautiful but an accident that killed her husband and unborn child also left her in a wheel chair. Angie believes she'll never love or be loved again. At a dance that Angie's caretaker forced her to attend, Angie remains in the back ground but Gavin Stone notices the beautiful young woman anyway and asks her to dance. When Angie refuses him he takes his leave but can’t get her out of his mind. When the two meet again, Angie is in a very precarious position and Gavin comes to the rescue. He then learns of her disability but continues to hide the truth about himself. That is until circ
umstances come together and Angie finds Gavin in the arms of another woman.


I feel that Written in Stone was a superbly written book. Editing was well done, but the cover confused me at first. It was not until the end that I realized who the lower couple was. Other than that I could picture Angie and Gavin as the cover models. I believe that it fit perfectly into both its genre and sub genre.

The romantic dance between the two was very believable. It unfolded at just the perfect pace to combine all levels of the story. I enjoyed that the heroine was not perfect in the traditional sense. It was wonderful to watch them work out the issues that arose! A very emotive story, one that will have me looking for more from this author!
