Synopsis

If true love can travel across time, can true evil be far behind?

When the beautiful Dr. Nina Winston's patient Bucky Buckingham reveals his secret to her, she has to doubt him. Reincarnation? True love across four centuries? But Nina is fascinated and lets herself be drawn into the charming and vulnerable Bucky's tale and into his life. Through hypnotherapy, she meets his former identity, and in real life, she meets his former paramour. If Bucky did live before, is Constance Rawlings his reincarnated lover? A dangerous search begins for the truth behind predestined love, and Nina is caught in the middle of soaring passions and raging jealousies.

Peter Paul Rubens's painting, Venus and Adonis, which hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is the inspiration for this fast-paced thriller set alternately between the seventeenth century in Antwerp and the present day in New York. A novel of intrigue and suspense, The Other Adonis is a tale of true love and murder, a mystery that takes the reader back in time to another world, with a resolution that will delight romantics and turn skeptics into believers.
