I was delighted to win this book in the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.

I have to confess that this was the first Mills and Boon book I have ever read, not thinking it was my type of literature at all. I decided to go into it blind, however, and give it a good go.

I'm very glad I did. Somewhere along the way, I had presumed that Mills and Boon published novels were all about sex sex sex, with an extra side of smut. I was delighted to find, as the sweet love story within unfolded, that this was not

I liked the setting. The story was typical Harlequin, the shy bookish heroine and rich Italian hero trope, though he didnt come across as a playboy and in fact that claim detracted from him a bit. The hero set it apart sonewhat since he wasn't the usual arrogant damaged Alpha type. Well written.

I rarely find a book where I love both the main characters but Josie and Dario make you fall in love with them. I loved this book and would recommend it.

YET ANOTHER triumph for Hollis. It's getting silly now; how can she have kept up this standard for so long?

I've been reading and writing all my life, and January 2007 saw the paperback publication of my first Mills and Boon Modern Romance, The Italian Billionaire's Virgin. I really hope you enjoy my books!

I love romance, and meeting my husband on a blind date was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. We live in Gloucestershire, England, with our son, daughter, varying numbers of livestoc
