Kate was determined to work the land and bring life back to the fields and the village. However, the Donatis had brought ruin to Belmare and its people. Few would work for "the Contessa." Those few who would, did so only on the condition that no one from the village knew they did. Only one man, Roberto Vela, was as determined as Kate to make the fields prosper. Kate was attracted to him from the beginning, but danger lurked around Kate and Roberto kept too many secrets. And whenever harm came to Kate, he was suddenly there. Was he to be her savior or her executioner?
***** When I found the name Evelyn Rogers on the cover of this book I was ecstatic! That name meant I was about to be transported into a new dark realm of romance called "the Gothic"! So few gothic stories are written anymore even though there are many fans of the genre out there keeping careful watch on the bookshelves of major stores.
Recalling how much I loved Devil In The Dark, her last gothic release, I was unable to stop myself from immediately opening the book and beginning to read. I was not the least bit disappointed! Once again Evelyn Rogers has created believable characters that I could easily sympathize with and care for. Then put them in the haunting setting with danger everywhere. Highly recommended! An enjoyable read! I look forward to this author's next release! *****
With midnight blue eyes, Roberto Vela's gaze penetrated Caterina 'Kate' Donati. Before him was a stunning young American solely in need of his assistance. By agreeing to come to her aid, will he be placing her life in jeopardy by exposing her to the dark turmoil that surrounds his very existence? Can he take the chance to give love an opportunity to bloom? Or will his haunted past be enough to destroy one so fair and pure?
Once again, Ms. Rogers has pulled out all the heavy ammunition and used it to create a beautiful compelling Gothic Romance. As always, her writing talent stands alone in serving to uphold the romance genre. Few authors can only hope they will be able to mimic the talent of Evelyn Rogers so they too will be able to produce a timeless treasure. Every book I read by this much-loved author only strengthens my belief that she is one of the best in the romance industry. For anyone new to romance, do yourself a favor, and begin by reading one of her legendary books. What you will find is an unsuppressed talent that is sure to go down in history!
