Our story begins in Guernica, Spain in 1897. Our heroine, Pia Alegria is helping her students learn English. Pia's father had left Spain 14 years before to make money to send for his family. Soon, he would send for them, but Pia nad her mother and sister are so nervous because its been 14 years since they have all been together. Pia and her sister were young children when their father left.
The trip from Spain is long and exhausting. But they finally make it to Boise. They were told to help at

She's everything a good woman should be: tiny, compliant, innocent, exotic, great in bed AND a virgin. Does as she's told, speaks only when spoken to and is just intelligent enough to hold a cute conversation. The guy is of course an asshole who sleeps around and never apologizes for being a jerk yet she loves him anyway. The story had potential but the protagonists made me sort of ill. Same for the picture on the cover.

This was the first book that I read from this author. I really enjoyed the story. It was fast paced and kept my interest! Great love story filled with history! Bart and Pia's relationship was built on trust and loyalty. They listened to their heart's instead of conforming to what other's wanted for them. Both character's were strong willed and determined to prove that sometimes love just comes along when you least expect it to!

I see books like this in every store that I go to and I finally decided to try one. Well, I have never read anything like it before and I will probably never read it again, but it was a very nice light read.
