Summary
"Step into True Colors -- a series of Historical Stories of Romance and True American Crime. Marvel at true but forgotten history when patients check into Linda Hazzard's Washington state spa in 1912 and soon become victim of her twisted greed. Heiress Stella Burke is plagued by insincere suitors and nonstop headaches. Exhausting all other medical aides for her migraines, Stella reads Fasting for the Cure of Disease by Linda Hazzard and determines to go to the spa the author runs. Stella's chauffer and long-time friend, Henry Clayton, is reluctant to leave her at the spa. Something doesn't feel right to him, still Stella submits herself into Linda Hazzard's care. Stella soon learns the spa has a dark side and Linda a mean streak. But when Stella has had enough, all ways to leave are suddenly blocked. Will Stella become a walking skeleton like many of the other patients or succumb to a worse fate?" -- Publisher annotation.

Summary
"As a baby, Anne de Bourgh was prescribed laudanum by her doctor, and now the young woman must take the opium-heavy syrup every day. Growing up confined to her father's mansion, Anne had few companions except her cousins, including Fitzwilliam Darcy, whom she is meant to marry. When her father dies unexpectedly, leaving her his vast fortune, Anne has a shocking moment of clarity. In a frenzy of desperation, Anne discards her laudanum and flees. Gone are her hallucinations and lethargy, now replaced by a keen awareness of her own inexperience in the ways of the word. Anne must forge a new identity for herself, learning to navigate high society and the heartbreak of forbidden love."--Page 4 of cover.
