He was almost a stranger to her.

April's first job in Spain came to a rather dramatic end, leaving her stranded in Madrid without money. So she could hardly refuse Don Carlos's offer of help.

This book pulled me in right from the start. I loved it, I loved the plot and the angst and especially April. I loved her, she was so considerate and nice. What I hated about the book was the ending.

My first thought after I finished reading the novel was it was all quite boring. I found trouble believing in the whole 'love at first sight' thing. The hero and heroine barely had any time what so ever to get to know each other. The heroes ward was a brat who did indeed need to be spanked and overall it was too fast, too messy and far too short in the details. It was barely an okay read. I'd give it 1.5 stars.
