The Treacherous Heart
by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

Comfortable boredom … or dangerous excitement?

Anne Symons is content living with her widowed father in a sleepy Dorset town.

She has a good job in a solicitor’s office and a kind, reliable, good-looking boyfriend Joe. But when enigmatic, sophisticated Michael Conrad appears on the scene, she suddenly feels something was missing from her life.

But should she really risk a safe future with loyal, adoring Joe for the dangerous allure and excitement of this fascinating stranger?

First published as Never Love a Stranger, under a pseudonym, this is a new edition with a new introduction from the author.


Readers who loved Rosamunde Pilcher’s early books, such as Sleeping Tiger (1967) and Snow in April (1972), will definitely enjoy Harrod-Eagles’ sweet, old-fashioned British romance
