This book is sickly fascinating.

So the repressed heroine from an abusive home is asked by the hero to marry her. She sees all her dreams coming true, he's hot, he finds her sexy *or so she assumes* and he's wealthy and travels a lot so she can live her ambition of seeing the world..and most importantly experiencing the world.

So the obliviously happy heroine gets married and on her wedding day overhears some painful truth. Women laughing at her because no one in their right mind would marry the h
4.5 stars.

I know from skimming through the reviews that lots of people really hated this book.

I quite liked it. The hero was the typical HP cave man who thought nothing of his double standards. But, what made this book for me was the growth of his awareness and love of the heroine. It was not a last chapter redemption. He evolved throughout the course of the story making his transformation very real and believable.

I totally felt the HEA was genuine.

Alternate title: Chauvinist hero and the stupid virgin who falls for him.

I was tempted so many times to chuck this book in the trashcan but I had to see how low the author will go. The hero is a medieval man with the madonna-whore complex: the pure wife/mother versus the sexy-but-trashy mistress/girlfriend. That's how he can rationalize being seen kissing his ex on his wedding day and bringing another gf to a nightclub while his goody-two-shoes wife is fuming at home. I swore: nothing short of l
Disappointed and angry by the time i finished,Rocco who is a MCP,arrogant,hypocrite,mean jerk spoiled the whole book for me,so many questions never answered and Francesca took steps to fight but gave in between,the double standards just made my blood boil Photobucket


Ah, for a character who wants her independence and keeps saying "Let me go!" to Rocco while secretly hoping he dashes on his white horse and sweep her away and ravishes her because he's hot and she should be grateful he wants her when he could had had anybody else, Francesca sure dosen't put up much of a fight when she has sex with Rocco and falls desperately into his arms and gives up leaving him until she finds out she's his baby-making machine. And the scary part is, after she d
Rocco acted abominably towards Chessie, but I felt he steadily redeemed himself as the novel progressed. I also believed in their happy ending and that there was no infidelity.

I liked that Chessie's naivety didn't last forever. Outside forces had to wake her up, yes, but once she did it was fun watching her knock Rocco down a peg or two.

I enjoyed The Sicilian's Virgin Bride overall. On a side note, this reminded me of Lynne Graham's writing (the characterization, tone and storyline) which is a

Like another review said I didn't like the heroine. She was full of insecurities, childish and whiny. the second half of the book was better though and so im giving this 3 stars.

Malo. Malo. Malo. La protagonista es tremendamente frustrante. El protagonista es un patán. Los dos me cayeron bastante mal. La historia fue súper sosa. Y el final taaan patético!

This hadn't been the best romantic novel I had read! Actually is really boring. When we read this kind of book we always know how gonna end, however is the journeywhat really matters. And this was a awful path, lack of brightness and creativity! I hate him, I hate her! Everthing was so forced, like have to be done but don't matter how I doing it! A poor novel at all.

I really like this series, and mostly all the novells I had read of it, but this was geetting worse and worse throught the page! I

Chessie married Rocco under command from her father. She went from one prison to another. But she left him on their wedding day. But now she is back and he has her where he wants her. But with all the stuff her father did to her and her mother will she ever let another man inside her closed off heart? Does he have the patience to give her or will he run over her feelings like they mean nothing to her? The angst here was well felt. Sarah Morgan is another of my favorite authors and not only thru ...more

It was good but I felt like towards the end it could have been better. The dialogue seemed stretched, especially with the heroine constantly talking in circles, making me think she doesn't want the hero to know anything. Something like "I am not pregnant with a boy"///"I am pregnant with a girl" the story could have been 50 lines less.

I kinda hate the heroine. Full of insecurities, a lil childish and whiny. It also felt short on the connection between the MCs. I kinda like how it started but it did not proceed the way I expected it to. Sigh.

But it was an okay read tho. Just don't expect too much based on the blurb.

Many ridiculous situations in this book. It was like a non-intentional tragicomedy. Thanks to its short lenght and the fact that it made me laugh more than cringe, I decided to finish it. :P

Un hombre puede ser muy frio pero aun asi lo que mas afecta es cuando una mujer no ayuda a que el mismo exprese sus sentimientos

Didn't like the hero AT ALL. I wasn't too fond of the heroine either. The conflict at the end wasn't convincing.

I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to have a strong female character.

one star to sarah morgan's novel never thought would rate SM's book this low.
Well, mb it wasn't of author's strongest books but it was OK. As always there's a lack of communication between H/h, but there's also this strange way the heroine was raised. You would wonder how it can happen in a modern world. Well, mb if story took place somewhere in Balcans or Middle East. But I never visited Italy or Sicily for that matter. MB it could have happened there too?
This book is about very low self-esteem and that's a bit strange to read about in this context. But it was entertain

Le doy dos estrellas y es mucho.
Realmente no me gustó.
Él es típico siciliano machista que te dan ganas de tirarlo por la ventana, y ella no se queda atrás.
the hero is unbelievably arrogant and a hypocrite. I enjoyed the merry chase the heroine leads him on...
Lady Raven RAVE!
