READERS' FAVORITE Five-Star Review
CHATELAINE AWARD for Romantic Fiction Finalist

A riveting romance set in 1800 Boston and New Hampshire! After a chance encounter, Edward and Dora get swept up by a whirlwind courtship. But as their feelings for each other grow, a family member's greed creates a crisis over status and wealth that could upend everything...
Brought together after tragedy, Edward Wyllie and Dora Tudor find the true beauty of love in this poignant and thrilling historical romance. In an unlikely place for new beginnings, a cemetery, Edward and Dora meet for the first time. But in that forlorn place, the beauty of love blossoms. Edward is still struggling with guilt over the death of his family more than a year ago--a guilt so great he's unable to even look at his childrens' gravestones. As their friendship grows, Dora forces Edward to confront the truth--their deaths were not his fault. And Edward gives Dora, a young Boston widow, a chance to seize love and learn the meaning of passion.

But first, they must put their whirlwind courtship on hold as Edward and Dora become embroiled in a shocking family crisis. Edward's brother Captain Sam Wyllie and his wife Catherine, a friend of Dora's since childhood, have come from their home in Kentucky to Boston to confront Catherine's wealthy father Remington Forbes. When Sam and Catherine arrive, both of Catherine's upper-crust parents reject her rugged frontier husband Sam and, heartlessly, their beautiful infant grandson Rory. A powerful businessman, obsessed with wealth, Forbes is desperate to gain control of Sam's property, Wyllie Mountain in New Hampshire. The mountain's abundant and newly discovered gold offers Forbes a chance to escape his insurmountable financial debt. Forbes will stop at nothing and is willing to have Sam murdered to get the gold. By killing Sam, he'll also regain control of the fortune his daughter inherited from her grandfather.

Dora resolves to try to help Catherine. She challenges Mr. and Mrs. Forbes to measure themselves not by their wealth and social status, but by how much love they are willing to give others. As hostilities mount, Edward is determined to keep Sam safe from Forbes and his unscrupulous men. But danger awaits on Wyllie Mountain and events quickly spin out of Edward's control. What do you do when the enemy is a family member who will do anything to get what he wants?

This extraordinary historical romance, teeming with intrigue and cliff-edge tension, is the story of a love that was meant to be. And the book's timeless messages of family and loyalty are both raw and honest. As in Wiley's other novels, the author's complex characters come alive and are joined by a memorable ensemble of friends and family. As Wiley skillfully unravels this compelling tale, she includes rich historical elements to create The Beauty of Love's vivid colonial world and a highly engaging page-turner.

Inspired by history, Wiley's books include her highly-acclaimed debut novel WILDERNESS TRAIL OF LOVE, the first in her American Wilderness Series. The novels of this Readers' Favorite Gold Medal winning and Amazon bestselling author are enjoyed worldwide by readers of historical romance, westerns, and classic American adventures.
