A Year of Light and Shadows is a captivating set of stories covering a year of mystery, suspense and romance in the life of Scottish actress Lizzie Smith and her bodyguard, Léon. 

When Lizzie is offered the chance to play the role of the Princess of Montverrier, she little realizes her decision to accept will thrust her into a world of intrigue and danger. Alone in the Palace, Lizzie relies on her quiet bodyguard, Léon, to guide her. But who is Léon really protecting? Lizzie...or the Royal Princess? 

Back home in Scotland Lizzie begins rehearsals for Macbeth - and finds danger stalking her through the streets of Edinburgh. Lizzie turns to her former bodyguard, Léon, for help...and discovers a secret he'd do anything not to reveal. 

Between The Pages 
Even though this anthology contains two romantic suspense novellas, Palace of Deception and The Scottish Diamond, as well as a bonus story, it can be read in one sitting. The stories blend well together and the ending wrapped up nicely. The characters were interesting and the plot was well written. An enjoyable romance.
