Book Description

No one had ever looked at her and seen perfection—until now.

Delicate, titian-haired Theresa Noble has met her father’s associates in the past, but the gorgeous, Italian-born Sandro De Lucci leaves her speechless. Eighteen months into their marriage, however, Sandro has turned to ice. Desperate to escape a relationship that has proven to be as stubbornly passionate as it is cold and hateful, Theresa summons up the courage to ask for a divorce. But before he’ll grant her request, Sandro demands something from Theresa: a son.

The stalemate sickens her. Never mind that Sandro has yet to introduce Theresa to the large family that means so much to him. Or that Theresa overhears her husband on the phone with a mystery woman. Most damning is that Theresa senses, in Sandro’s treatment of her, the behind-the-scenes machinations of Jackson Noble, her cruel father. From the depths of her anxiety, Theresa must seek an empowering truth about the husband who calls her, with such cold affection, his cara, his beloved.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent emotional read 23 Feb. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Loved this book it is definatley a keeper and has all the elements of a romance that I enjoy. It starts off 18 months into their marriage when the wronged heroine Theresa can no longer tolerate our heroes callous treatment of her. He has hot sex with her but refuses to kiss her and show her any affection and demands each time they sleep together that she give him a son as he believes that is his only way to escape a marriage he was blackmailed into by her manipulative father. She has hung onto the marriage as she truly loves him but everyone has a breaking point and Theresa reaches hers and demands a divorce. Our hero then starts to see her for who she really is and rapidly begins to change his treatment of her. He finds out she knew nothing of the plan to blackmail him into the marriage. For Theresa it is too little too late until she finds she is expecting his child. She agrees to stay with him (following his desperate attempt to keep her via threats to enforce a debt owed to him by her closest friend and cousin) until the baby is born whereby the terms of their marriage will release him from his commitment to her. Throughout the pregnancy he seeks to win her over, but she believes he wants his freedom to return to his life in Italy and to his true love. This is a very emotional read, you feel Theresa's pain and can understand why she sticks to her resolve to release him after all the hurt she has suffered. It is enjoyable to see the hero realise just how much he has wronged her and try desperately to set things right. A brilliant romance with real chemistry between the characters.

    3.0 out of 5 stars I quite liked it.. 26 Sept. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I came across this book and read a little bit of it through the 'look inside' option on amazon - and i was intrigued so bought it to find out what happens, i had lots of questions that needed answered! However, the plot is a bit far fetched - i mean, she marries a guy that she thinks loves her even though he refuses to kiss her on the mouth and then it turns out, he was forced into marrying her by her dad and thought she knew.. i mean, surely the fact that it was a forced marriage would come into conversation after 18 months of marriage? But apparently it didnt and then after treating her like rubbish for 18 months he realises that "oops, she doesnt know this marriage was forced" and then tries to change and of course they fall in love all over again and live happily ever after... it was a weird storyline, not very believable and predictable. However, if you like romance and 50 shades of grey type books (this one isnt quite as raunchy) and dont really care how dysfunctional the relationship is then this could be the book for you!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good story 12 Jun. 2014
    By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me somewhat of the Mills and Boon novels I read many moons ago. It has that angst ridden feel but the author writes great characters. I have also enjoyed the second book in this series (A Husband's Regret) as well and I look forward to the third book 'His Unlikely Lover' due out on 17 June.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A good romantic novel 30 Oct. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    What a surprise this book was. Sometimes with self published free reads there is an experience of disappointment. This wasn't for me.

    As soon as I start a book I know very quickly whether I am going to "get into it" by the first chapter. I got into this from the opening paragraph.

    I love books with this type of storyline - angsty, cold male - I am a sucker for romance and believe in happy ever afters and I read this hoping that Theresa and Allessandro would have their HEA.

    The story starts with Theresa and Allesandro having sex. Theresa turns to him lovingly but he kills the moment with five words - "give me a son Theresa". What the reader doesn't realize at this point is that Allesandro has been blackmailed by her father to marry her and the only way out is to give her a son.

    Theresa decides enough is enough and provides five words of her own "I want a divorce, Allesandro". Unfortunate timing as Theresa discovers she is pregnant.

    There is a number of powerful and emotional scenes in this story as Allesandro realizes he is about to lose something he does care about. He wants to save the marriage and tries to heal the rift between him and his wife.

    Yes there were a few minor issues with the plot but that did not detract from the storyline. This for me was a well written story and a plot that I love. Does Allesandro get the son he desires? Read the story to find out.

    It is a sweet romantic read and I will certainly look at further books by Natasha Anders.
