In this book we are introduced to the twin of VIvie who we met in My Darling Druid. I was kind of disappointed in Kate's story. She meets the great Maestro Gabriel Jourdain at the Conservatoire de Paris and at the first meeting he immediately is mean and cruel to her. The only reason for this we find out later, is because he's trying to protect his heart. I had a hard time liking him, even after he admits he loves Kate. Also, he never tells Kate that the reason he feels he needs to protect his heart is because someone spitefully hurt him.
Overall, I liked the book and the storyline, but felt kind of detached from the characters.
When Kate Dellafield is accepted as a student at the Conservatoire de Paris she's ecstatic to be a student of the renowned Gabriel Jourdain. Gabriel is revered throughout France for his brilliance as a pianist and his wartime heroism. Handsome, commanding, charismatic, he tries to drive Kate from his classroom with sarcasm as he fights against his compelling attraction for the beautiful Druid.
When Gabriel finally admits his love, he claims they have no future together. Can Kate make him acknowledge the secret that is keeping them apart? Only Druid powers can save them both. Will the lilting song in her heart convince him they belong together?
