The Disobedient Virgin is probably one of the most tender love stories I've read by Sandra Marton. She's written so many, but this one especially touched my heart. This book is part of the Ramirez Bride series and the final in that series. What I think is so incredible is that Harlequin chose three authors from three continents.....Sandra Marton (US), Emma Darcy (Australia) and Michelle Reid (UK). This series is about three half brothers scattered to opposite sides of the globe; each must find a bride in order to find each other.
Jake Ramirez has just found himself in a real predicament. He's become a guardian to Catarina, a young woman he's never met and she lives in Brazil. He's also received the news that the father he believed to have died as a soldier and hero was not his father at all. That his biological father was a wealthy Brazilian who recently died and he has two half brothers he didn't know existed. In order to meet these half brothers he must become Cat's guardian and marry her off in order to gain his brother's names.
Cat is a sweet, innocent orphaned girl who is just waiting to turn of age so she can escape the Convent and experience life. Little does she know that her life will change when Jake enters the picture and whisks her away to New York.
Jake is strong, handsome, rich and sexy and a very powerful businessman. His youth was not one to be proud of growing up in the streets of New York, find a little trouble but turning his life around and making himself one of the most powerful and sought after bachelors in New York.
From the moment they meet, anger and sparks fly, plus a tension neither of them understands. Their journey together will melt your heart. However, the final meeting of the brothers in this series was perfect, a perfect ending to a wonderful series.
Catarina Mendes is young, innocent and rich. Jake Ramirez is handsome, worldly, rich... and now he's Cat's guardian. He's supposed to protect her from unscrupulous men and find her a good, solid Brazilian husband. Once Jake does that, Cat will inherit the fortune her parents left her... and Jake will finally learn the identity of his two half-brothers. There's only one problem. Cat's a virgin, and Jake wants her. Can he resist taking what the innocent Cat offers before he finds her a suitable husband?
