TV star Laird Wakefield died after a motorcycle accident--or so it was announced to the news outlets by his doctors. Not true. With his face horribly scarred, he has gone into total seclusion, living in what the townspeople call "the haunted mansion on the hill" for the past five years.

But that is about to change. On a dare from his brother, twenty-three-year-old Dev Pierson breaks into the mansion's basement. When Laird catches him in the act, Dev is terrified at first when he sees Laird's face and Rage, Laird's huge guard dog. Much to Dev's surprise, after he explains why he's there, Laird invites him upstairs for a drink.

Slowly, a friendship develops between the two men. Then the question becomes, can Dev convince Laird to face his fears and end his reclusive existence? And if he makes the attempt, will Laird survive emotionally?


The Recluse by Edward Kendrick is a very sweet emotional read. I always enjoy the stories that Mr. Kendrick brings for their emotion and love and this one is no exception.
Laird Wakefield used to be a famous movie star. That is till a motor cycle accident took his looks from him. Now everyone thinks he is dead. He might as well be. He keeps in hiding, so no one sees the monster he has become.
Very lonely man with not only a bruised ego but heart as well.
Dev on a dare breaks into Laird's house. He breaks in through the basement. Laird finds him. And the most unlikely of friendships begins. Dev is fun, sweet, and sassy. He is just what Laird needs to come out of his self imposed shell.
Both men learn to trust and how to love. I liked what each had to offer the other. When you want a story where true love can save the day this is the one to pick up.
