Book 8 - Pippa series
Chase Away The Night
Then Professor Sloane McGuire was asked to escort a certain guest lecturer during her visit to Duke University, he couldn't say no. Eve Noble's writings had touched him, made him think, wish and remember. She was living proof that a silent world was not a prison, but a way to embrace life with a new perspective. As her personal guide, Sloane would give her the respect and privacy she deserved.
When Eve and her sister arrived in North Carolina, they expected to meet a university professor as old as the hills and as dry as dust. But Sloane McGuire was a man of many surprises. From his heartbreakingly handsome grin to his chocolate brown eyes, he was hardly a scholarly curmudgeon. And when Eve saw him hustling kids from a local street gang across a basketball court, she witnessed his rock solid strength and energy. But despite his devotion to his work, Sloane kept his emotions hidden from the world. More perceptive than many hearing women, Eve could read his every gesture. She saw the shadows that darkened the eyes of this solitary man. Before she left the Carolinas, she was determined to use her special gift to touch the soul of this man and chase away the night.
