When Venus Fell
Home is wherever the heart leads....
The ties that bind us--to our families, to our pasts--are at the heart of this deeply engrossing story.nbsp;nbsp;
Venus Arinelli saw her future as a concert pianist shattered when her father's life ended in disgrace.nbsp;nbsp;Now Venus plays in cocktail lounges, sporting her survival skills like a suit of armor.nbsp;nbsp;When a stranger emerges from her parents' long-ago past with an offer too good to refuse, Venus' suspicions flare up.
But Gib Cameron has a special mission.nbsp;nbsp;He represents the Camerons of Tennessee--a family as rooted in American history and Southern soil as Venus' is notorious and fly-by-night.nbsp;nbsp;Yet the Camerons, survivors of tragedy, need Venus for reasons that have to do with honor and loyalty and an almost mystical bond to their shared past.nbsp;nbsp;And Gib, as hard-eyed a skeptic as Venus herself, has to persuade her to come to their mountain home.
Humor, sexiness, pathos, and surprises are all part of Deborah Smith's unique storytelling magic.nbsp;nbsp; When Venus Fell will entrance readers with its tale of Venus's reluctant journey to Tennessee, where two well-guarded hearts, afraid to trust again, will find they've come home.
