Katherine Kingsley

Katherine is the author of five historical romances for Dell: In the Presence of Angels, The Sound of Snow, Call Down the Moon, Once Upon a Dream, and In the Wake of the Wind. Before settling down to writing she led a varied life. A direct descendant of John Jay, she was raised in New York City and London. Her earlier callings included being a professional modern dancer, a firefighter, an EMT, and a preschool teacher. But it is writing that has brought her the greatest joy.

Katherine Kingsley is the recipient of two Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards and four Reviewer's Choice Awards, including Best Regency Romance of the Year for A Natural Attachment, and Best Historical Romance of the Year for No Sweeter Heaven. She is also a two-time Romance Writers of America RITA finalist for No Sweeter Heaven and No Brighter Dream. She lives in the Colorado mountains with two Jack Russell terriers and an Amazon parrot, and spends a few months each year on the Greek isle of Mykonos.

He had not moved, and when she touched his face, it was not to discover that he was hot with fever, as she had expected, but to find that he was still cold, far colder than he should have been. She rolled him onto his back and pressed her ear to his chest, trying very hard not to panic. His heart beat slowly, but in an even rhythm, and his chest continued to rise and fall. She knew there was something terribly wrong. She sensed it in every fiber of her being, had sensed it from the night before.

“Binkley,” she called from the bedroom door. “Binkley, come quickly!”

Binkley appeared only moments later. “What is it, madam? Has something happened?” He spoke evenly, but he was more shaken than she’d ever seen him.

“No,” she said, trying to be calm. “That’s just it. Nothing has happened. Nothing at all. I think you had better come and see.”

Binkley entered the room and went over to the bed, looking down at Nicholas. He picked up his hand and let it drop. Then he gingerly opened Nicholas’ eyelid and gazed at his eye. It did not move, not did it see.

Binkley stepped away and carefully folded his fingertips together. “It is curious,” he said.

“Curious?” Georgia said, wanting to scream. “Binkley, it is unlike anything I have ever seen! He should be recovering from exhaustion by now—or at least have a fever in reaction to the exposure. But instead he is still cold. I cannot understand this. He did not strike his head that you know of? I have found no evidence of it, but sometimes there is none.”

“No, I saw no indication that Mr. Daventry might have had a blow to the head. He was shocked, yes, but that is not surprising after he had pushed himself beyond his limits. Perhaps he only needs rest, a very long sleep.”

“I agree, but this is not a natural sleep. Oh, Binkley, I cannot bear that Nicholas might have saved all those lives only to give up his own. I really can’t.” She pushed her hand into her forehead hard, willing herself to stay strong. “He must get better. He must. I could not bear it if anything happened to him.”

“I am pleased to hear it, madam,” Binkley said.

Georgia’s eyes shot to his in dismay. “Binkley! How could you ever think otherwise?”

“It is not what I think that matters. It is what Mr. Daventry
