Rebecca is recuperating in Nepal after a mountain climbing accident when she learns that Therese, the daughter she gave up for adoption thirteen years ago, is suspected of setting the fire that killed her adoptive mother. She concludes that her best chance of helping Therese is to reappear in her life as a nanny, telling no one her real identity. Rebecca soon realizes that something is not quite right with the entire family. Unfortunately, Marius Gabriel is not at his finest in this book. The first three quarters were excellent, with a fantastic buildup of suspense and intrigue. The ending was a bit of a let-down, and it felt incongruous with respect to the rest of the book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553572253, Mass Market Paperback)

No one is surprised when Michael Florio is suspected of setting the fire that killed his wealthy, estranged wife, Barbara. Michael arrived at the Pacific Heights mansion just in time to save his two daughters--but not Barbara. Handsome, charismatic, and feared, Michael has a past shrouded by violence. Now he has only one concern: to protect his daughters--one of whom has all but confessed to murder.

It is a concern shared by Dr. Rebecca Carey. Thirteen years ago, Rebecca gave Therese Florio up for adoption. Now she is determined to save her daughter--innocent or guilty. Tracking the family to Michael's hideaway in the Italian countryside, Rebecca must watch every move she makes. She dares trust no one. Torn between her mission to save her troubled daughter and her growing attraction to a dangerously seductive man, Rebecca learns that what she feared most is true: You can never turn back.
