It was a year since their tempestuous affair had ended. So why was he back? Elisa trusted Salvatore di Vitale as far as she could throw him. And, as the wealthy Sicilian was over six feet tall, that wasn't very far. Salvatore told Elisa he had come to protect her. And if their close proximity led to passion... and if passion should lead to pregnancy... all the better! Beca ...more

Wow the hero was a total ass in the beginning of this book. The heroine suffered a traumatic miscarriage as a result of his behavior. He was callous and cruel. Yes his ex lied about her pregnancy and cheated on him but still Elisa didn't deserve his cruelty. He believes she sleeps with other men, he doesn't even believe the baby she lost is his and hurts her so much. After he abandons her she calls him nonstop but he refuses to listen and acknowledge he is the father of her baby. When he regrets ...more

The heroine Elisa is not pleased when the hero Salvatore turns up at the jewellery store she works for. It reminds her too much of the pain she experienced a year ago when Salvatore had cruelly left her and she had later suffered a traumatic miscarriage. Salvatore has never forgiven himself for the cruel way he treated Elisa when he didn't believe her about the pregnancy, and he searched high and low for her when Elisa seemingly disappeared after her ordeal. Now she has come back, and w

Oh, the injustice, the pain, the grief, the guilt, the remorse! This was an emotional read and unusual in the fact that the entire book centers on hero's remorse and guilt rather than a brief scene at the end. Salvatore was vicious and had no good reason for accusing heroine and treating her like crap (but then HP heroes rarely do). This was somewhere between a 2 and 4 star for me..almost gave it 4 because I could recognize hero's love through his empathy for heroine, his fidelity, his steadfast ...more

I was a little confused at how to rate this because the hero felt like two different people. In the beginning of their relationship (flashbacks) he treated her like crap, accused her of some pretty nasty things and honestly believed the worst of her. She was beyond hurt - she was devastated. It almost felt like she just couldn't possibly forgive that kind of hurt. Even later in the book, some of these trends continue (view spoiler) ...more

This was Elisa and Salvatore's story and a very enjoyable read.

After Elisa's disastrous affair with Salvatore ended, she tried to moved on and forget the man she loved who didn't believe the child she had carried and lost was his. And she thought she had put it all behind her until he showed up at the jewelry store where she works and old feelings started to resurfaced.

Salvatore can't forget Elisa. But it was already too late when he realized his mistake. She already lost the baby and he lost h

This is Elisa and Salvatore’s story…..one full of passion, pain and will, in the end, warm your heart.

All of Elisa’s life she just wanted to belong and she felt she belonged to no one, not her lover nor her parents. She craved acceptance from her American mother who chose not to marry her Italian father. Throughout her life she spent time in Sicily with her father and his wife and their sweet, traditional Sicilian daughter.

However, Elisa always felt somewhat like an outsider. Her lover, Salvato

This was the first of the two I picked up. I was looking for something to read during a break at work and picked it up at the library book sale for 50 cents. It seems a bit pricey for the little Harlequins in comparison to the large mass markets but whatever. This was one of those books where you actually question whether or not the author meant to be funny/ridiculous. I want to say no but that's how it read.

The book followed Elisa w

A wonderful emotional heartwrenching read. The passion between Elisa & Salvatore just lights the pages on fire. Due to misunderstandings & the miscarriage of their child a year ago their romance had ended. Now Salvatore is trying to break through the stone wall around Elisa heart as he has come to realize he was wrong a year ago & needs her to make him complete. It is an uphill battle as Elisa is determined not to be hurt again by the man she had loved. You can't help but feel the em ...more

Salvatore is a world renowned securities expert with huge resources and expertise equal to the secret service. He insists that he will be her bodyguard until the auction, and Elisa tries to fight him with cold contempt ...more

Pregnancy of Passion by Lucy Monroe wasn't one of her best but the storyline was great all the same. Elisa has moved forward with her life since her miscarriage a year ago and this has involved by avoiding the baby's father, Salvatore. Now, however, he's back in her life as her bodyguard due to the small jewellery business she works for being in charge of hosting the auction of the crown jewels. The whole story focuses on Salvatore struggling with his guilt because he believes it's his fault Eli ...more

This was a heartwarming, emotional story. Elisa, and Salvatore were lovers. Something happened, and Elisa never wanted to see Salvatore again. A year later he walked into her shop. He was there to protect her, and she couldn’t get him to leave. Salvatore was a security expert, and body guard. Elisa was going to have some very expensive jewels stored in her shop, till the auction. Her dad wanted to make sure she was protected, so he hired Salvatore to protect his daughter. The Two still had passi ...more

Casi nunca (De hecho es el primer Harlequín que le doy cinco estrellas) pero me encanto, me dejo con ganas de más y no quería parar de leer.

3.5 stars. I liked the emotional aspects and that the hero spent the whole book trying to make amends but some of the dialogue was very dated.

I thought this was pretty lame. His reason for doubting that he was the father of her baby originally was ridiculous -- yes, he was suspicious based on his past experience, but that doesn't overcome BASIC BIOLOGY -- he knew he'd had unprotected sex, how on earth could he angrily swear that the baby wasn't his? And speaking of which, if he'd truly been scarred by that prior experience, wouldn't he be obsessive about using protection in the first place? I'm not one to care much about plot believab ...more

This story is too plain. I skipped A LOT.

Un petit roman que j'ai pu placer entre deux lectures-chronique LOL J'ai adoré, une histoire de retrouvailles comme j'aime avec un héros prêt à tout pour reconquérir l'héroïne mais qui sera bien obligé de dévoiler plus que ses intentions. Une héroïne qui lui en fait baver comme il faut. Je ne m'attendais pas à ce que leur dernier conflit se résolve aussi facilement mais j'ai préféré comme ça.

So every once in a while I need to "cleanse my pallet" so to speak. This was a great book to do it with. It was straight, to the point, with a hot alpha, a smart sassy heroine that didn't give in too quick and a great story-line.
I totally enjoyed it and would definitely recommend this for someone that needs a little bit of "won't take no for an answer" alpha to get your mind cleared and ready for another turbulent read.

Great novel. However the hero was a real dickhead. I loved watching him unravel emotionally and learn to be the right man for the heroine. The book was done really well on the emotional level, I had tears in my eyes. The heroine went through a lot of bullshit and I had to hand it to her and her heart for being so loving, even though she lost something precious to her.
Sandy
Pregnancy of Passion is a brief, passionate story of two souls coming together after bearing the loss of an unborn child and unborn love. This book isn't life-changing but it's got merit so if you have time, I would recommend reading it! 3.5/5 stars.

Found this in bargain bin and knew author name so I wanted to see if her writing would appeal to me in a harleaquin book but NO!
