Not a good read. The writing was bad, I felt no connection to the characters at all. Maybe because they were so one dimensional. Hero was an ass who didn't deserve the lovely innocent heroine or their sweet kids. He should have stayed with his bitchy princess. They deserved each other.

The hero was a creep, granted not the biggest one in harlequin history but he has to be at least in the top twenty. The hero and heroine had an affair and the heroine got pregnant. He married her. Things hit the fan and she leaves with the twin girls. She remains loyal while he whores around with another whore. It's the same story written about a thousand times. The heroine might have cancer, so he marries her again, then he finds out the heroine doesn't have cancer and he leaves her again. Then ...more
I scanned this book and the little I read about the story I could realize what an assh*** this hero was! One of the worst heros I ever read, I hated him! Poor heroine :(

After a failed marriage, Peyton moves back home to raise her twin daughters on her own. An illness brings her back to Italy to her ex-husband, Marco, in hopes he will take care of his daughters while she goes through cancer treatments. But, just being back with him again brings back all kinds of feelings she tried to put behind her. Marco is engaged to be married to someone else now. This book goes through a lot of emotions from Peyton and Marco as they try to figure out what they will do next. ...more
Ummm....WHERE THE FUCK IS THE GROVELLING? the sad SOB walked out on the bride on their wedding night because she DIDNT have cancer!
And he wasn't worried for her wellbeing UNTILL he had proof of her innocence. He didn't even care. And once he knew, he was suddenly so worried he was claiming he was about to ring the police. Umm were planning divorce and soul custody you pig!

Küçük Mucizeler- Jane porter
Bu ayki Harlequin Classicsdeki romanlar içinde Jane Porte'in Küçük Mucizelerindeki erkek karaktere çok sinir oldum..Adam tam anlamı ile bir baş belasıydı.
Bu hikayede iki modacının aşkı ve aralarındaki kara çalı ise bir prenses idi..Prenses de olsa kara çalı kara çalıdır...
Marco D'Angelo ve Payton iki yıl önce fırtınalı evliliklerini bitirmişlerdi..Payton bu ayrılıktan çok acı çekmişti..Boşandıktan sonra kocası ile hiç görüşmemişti ki bu evliliklerinden olan ikiz kız ç
Encontré la autora de este libro en algun blog donde descargaba novelas de Harlequin. Decían que escribía unas buenas historias de jeques. Nunca había escuchado hablar de ella así que descargué algunas de sus novelas. Como hago casi SIEMPRE, debo asegurarme de NO encontrar cosas desagradables (violación, maltrato...) hice una lectura por encima de esta novela. Debo confesarles que de lo poco que leí, me encontré con uno de los héroes mas estúpidos, patán, boludo... etc de todas las Harlequin que ...more

Peyton is raising her twin daughters in California alone. When she's diagnosed with cancer, like her mom and aunt were previously, she decides to take the girls to Italy to be with their father. Although the girls consider their father (Marco) to be a stranger, Payton knows that he is the only person that can care for them if something were to happen to her.

This book was full of love, love lost and love rekindled. The story was written wonderfully and kept you captivated from the beginning. I f

كان مارك دانجيلو عالمها كله نجومها وسماءها جعل عالمها الضيق يتسع ... جعلها تشعر ... ونحب !
وإذا به يعود ويرمي كل هذا في وجهها ... فقد جعل عالمها ينهار محطما قلبها وأحلامها من دون أن يشعر بشيء .
... ورحلت بايتون بعد فشل زواجهما العاصف مع ابنتيها الصغيرتين ...
لم تظن قط أنه ستعود ولو بعد مليون عام ومع ذلك عادت بعد عامين إلى إيطاليا ... فقد حان الوقت لتعرف الطفلتان أباهما .
لم تكن بايتون تنوي البقاء فقد صممت على معاملة هذا الرجل المسيطر بفتور لكن كيف تتجاهل مشاعرها ؟ كيف تتص
At first, judging by the "Hero" Marco's actions, I thought this book was written in the late eighties, which requires some forgiveness and suspension of blood pressure to get through. But then ole Marco pulls out his cell phone and I'm like, "ummm... huh?"

All I can say is that up until the end, I intended to give this about 3 stars. Then the asshat pulled a stunner and we descended into book-throwing-across-the-room stage.

If I could go negative, I'd be there.

I couldn't out this book down. I thought I would just read a chapter or two before bed, boy was I wrong. I had to know what happened to Marco, Payton and their children. I loved that Payton was so strong in spite of all that she was feeling and going through. Porter did an excellent job of making feel all the emotions the characters were feeling. I found myself even tearing up at certain points. I loved this book!
It was ok I enjoyed it but it could have been better. I didn't feel the love he felt for her because the entire time he is throwing the princess in her face like a wall. Kept me interested but needed something more.

Lo único que le podría criticar a la historia es el final, te la pasas sufriendo todo el libro, en la espera de un dulce final, pero este termina siendo muy rápido. Y por otra parte el desenlace del argumento es un poco "flojo".

I'm always looking for a good reunion romance. And I wasn't disappointed with Marco and Payton's story. At the beginning, I was wondering what kept them apart and then I was wondering what was going to bring them back together. I think I'll be reading this one more than once.

Damn you, Jane Porter! You kept me up waaaaay past my bedtime. I could not put this story down! Fabulous book, fabulous characters. Heartbreaking and uplifting all at once. I really, really loved this book.

Born in Visalia, California, I'm a small town girl at heart. I love central California's golden foothills, oak trees, and the miles of farmland. In my mind, there's nothing sweeter in the world than the heady fragrance of orange blossoms on a sultry summer night.

As a little girl I spent hours on my bed, staring out the window, dreaming of far off places, fearless knights, and happy-ever-after endi
