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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, if Predictable 24 Nov. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This was a pacy good read, with a fairly predictable ending, but if you want a read that you can put down and pick up again, or for the beach, this is for you.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book 6 Oct. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Caught my interest right from the first paragraph. Really felt for the characters. Have lost count how many times I have read this book. Definitely got emotionally involved with them. It is a good story about a girl who finally stands up to her awful situation and husband and a man who realises he has probably ruined any chance of being with the women he loves. As he fights to win her back, but finds she cannot trust his motives or forgive the despicable things he and her father have put her through. Would definitely recommend this book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great read - you won't be disappointed! 25 Feb. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I'm not one to generally write reviews, but when you come across a great book by a virtually unknown author - you feel compelled to share it! I read this book in 1 day and I consider myself to be quite a lazy reader - if I don't get 'into' the book by the end of chapter 2 - I tend to abandon it. I really enjoyed this book and I guess it's obvious from the start how the book is going to end - but that doesn't detract from it having a genuinely good story line. Look forward to reading more by this author.

    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.

    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.

    This was a refreshing read. It was also slightly heart rending to follow Theresa's disillusionment and disappointment in her marriage to who she thought was her prince charming. Read more
