Reading this book was like visiting my youth, I used to devour Mills and Boons books when I was a young woman, and they stopped me going mental being on bed rest when pregnant with my daughter.
This book was a good one, we have the usual plot scenario but our heroine was not a damsel in distress, in fact she was courageous to make the trip to Italy after her heart was broken there.
Elise Carlton has spent years as a trophy wife and finally she is free of his blackmail to live her life as she sees fit.
When Vincente Farnese, the handsome Italian businessman, and her husband’s boss talks her into going to Italy to finalise the sale of the house her husband owned there, she reluctantly agrees, the sparks fly between them, but Vincente has a hidden agenda – but Cupid has other ideas!
When Elise starts to fall for Vincente’s charms and opens up to him, his conscience is at war with his need for revenge.
The author did a good job at creating the relationship and the hidden secrets that would when revealed blow their relationship apart, and I was hooked to the pages to see if they would eventually find their way through the pain of the past and into a future where only their love would matter.
