Hidden in the Flame [used book], Anne Mather
1 Hidden in the Flame [used book]
Anne Mather Australia Mills and Boon 1985 026375149X / 9780263751499 Soft cover Good Book A-format 
The demands of a young woman's heart are Hidden in the Flame... Catherine huddled in the ashes of the hut she had shared with her father. Her eyes could not focus on his dead body. Her mind would not admit that their life together was over. She knew that the rebels of Surajo had killed him, and without him she had no one. When the imperious Doctor Armand Alvares delivered her to the convent, she thought she had found sanctuary. Catherine-young and rebellious, fighting the restrictions imposed by her South American convent, but afraid to leave its sanctuary; distrustful of the man who had saved her life while shamefully aware of his forbidden attraction. Armand-a Brazilian doctor with a burning purpose, whose life was inextricably entwined with the people in the rebellion-torn country of Surajo. Drawn to Catherine against his will, Armand had no power to fight her heavy sensuality-but he was not free to surrender to his body's desires.

J. R. Ward UK Piatkus 2015 0349409900 / 9780349409900 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood delivers the first novel in an enthralling new series set amid the shifting dynamics of a Southern family defined by wealth and privilege-and compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal.... For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege-as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet. For Lizzie King, Easterly's head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted-and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane's beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets. As family tensions-professional and intimately private-ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.
