This Magic Moment
Pierce was an austere and solitary figure, a magician who had dazzled and entranced audiences all over the world. Only one woman, Ryan, had guessed the pain that lay behind his art, the past he had chosen to conceal behind the flash and the glitter. His unhappy childhood had taught him to rely on nothing. Yet Ryan was determined to offer him the only truth she knew: Their love was no illusion.
This Magic Moment is one of two Nora Roberts books that have been turned into movies. Here's the video cover for the March 1989 movie version, Magic Moments.
