5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful adddition to the Balfour saga. 18 Jun. 2011
When I read the blurb to Annie 's Secret By Caroline Mortimer, I knew it was one I would like to read and I also knew that it will be interesting. Despite that I was surprised by how engaging and gripping it was. I probably read it in an hour. Annie was one of the eight Balfour sisters and the first daughter of the 2nd wife. She was not as wild as some of her sisters and never let her hair down; until four years earlier while on a skiing trip with some university friends. She ran into a handsome stranger, playboy Luc, with whom she skis down slope and accepted his invitation to go back to his room for a drink. You can imagine what happens next - a night of endless passion, Annie's first which left her with a secret legacy. Their plan to meet up the next day was thwarted by fate which meant that Luc had to go away in a hurry. They never said goodbye nor did they exchange last names. The fateful events that took Luc away changed his life forever and he went from playboy to responsible hard core business man overnight. Four years later Annie is on a training course in Italy where she bumps into Luc but he does not recognise her and she is angered by his lack of recognition. When he remembers her she discovers that he is 'The Luca de Salvatore', and Luca finds out that she is Annie Balfour one of the Scandalous Balfours sisters. What now, should she run away or should she let him in on her secret?

This was a beautifully crafted story. Both leads were very likable, strong and self assured. I like the fact that Annie did not cower at Luca's demands once he found out what Annie did not tell him about their night together.

3.0 out of 5 stars The YA Bookshelf 22 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read every book in the Balfour Legacy Series before this one and I can honestly say I enjoyed every book but this.

Don't get me wrong, it was okay but that's it. The storyline was classic Mills & Boon with a predictable ending but because I was expecting it I didn't mind. The one thing I did mind though was the overuse of exclamation marks.

Now normally I'm not one to point out grammar mistakes or over-use but this I have to comment one, I am not joking it felt as if every other sentence ended in an exclamation mark, even when one wasn't needed.

I couldn't appreciate the storyline or the characters because that one thing annoyed me so much.

Carole Mortimer's Balfour Legacy book started out with a bang! As those of us who have been reading the series know that their father Oscar Balfour has recently lost his current wife and his ambition now is to see his daughters take charge of their lives and he also sends them on journeys which result in them finding a life partner.

Annie, has always felt the competition of her sisters so when she got a chance to not go on the family vacation and go with her university friends on an ski trip she took the chance. And then she realized how safe she had always played her life. When she met a drop dead gorgeous Italian man she took him up on his offer and spent time skiing, and had drinks at his private chalet. That's not all they did, the result being a son Oliver. What neither of them counted on was that Luc never had the opportunity to make their dinner date the next night because he found out his father had suffered a stroke which had been brought on by Luc's carelessness with the family business. Annie was shocked when he didn't show up and then a month later when she found out she was carrying Luc's baby. They was no way to contact him. Because they had acted on their mutual attraction more than getting to know each other, they never exchanged last names.

Now four and one half years later, her father Oscar Balfour insisted she should attend a conference in Italy and of course, quite by chance she bumps into that same very sexy Italian Luca de Salvatore. It was a crazy coincidence, who could have imagined that 4 ½ yrs later she would run into him? I immediately wondered if Oscar Balfour knew his grandson father's identity and did he set it up because he knew life was too short?

1.0 out of 5 stars A FAIL!!! 7 Jun. 2014
By Pam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought it was awful, in comparison to all the other Balfour series. Which was a surprise, because Annie's narrative was void of excitement. And I felt the characters were not developed enough for 'us' the reader to connect with them. Plus the storyline felt too rushed.
