Very enjoyable with a sheltered heroine who receives no love, or so she thinks,from her staid grandfather. She is happy that Luciano is paying attention to her because she has loved him for some time. There are hot, sexy scenes enjoyed by the heroine and the hero until blackmail, the other woman, and a manipulative grandfather cause trouble and makes the heroine feel that again she is loved by no one and that the love of her life does not want her. How does she know this? After seeing pictures o ...more

Well, I'm not surprised that I enjoyed this one. Lucy Monroe has always been a favorite of mine. And once again, she gave us another powerful and intense love story in her book The Sicilian's Marriage Arrangement

Hope Bishop is a shy, young woman who grew up craving for only one thing that money can't buy - her grandfather's love. She's used to being ignore, so when Luciano de Valerio, the man she had secretly dreamed about for years, suddenly paid her attention, she was thrilled. For the first t

It goes straight to my favorites. This was a fast and entertaining read. The relationship between Hope and Luciano was sweet and the chemistry was great. Hope is naive and innocent but strong and giving. I loved Luciano's transformation towards the end he changes from a cold business man to a very romantic sexy family man totally smitten with his wife. I'm a sucker for arranged marriages/babies so this was just the perfect story for me. And I appreciated the fact that there was no cheating!

Passion, Pride, Revenge and Love d:)

This book had it all.The author did a good job of creating a connection between the H and h in the beginning. The h was sweet but not a pushover. The H was a typical Sicilian alpha male and was going to make the best of being blackmailed. When H thought h was a part of blackmail scheme, he planned to take revenge on her, but alas, he couldn't make himself do it. He loved her and wanted to make their marriage work. Very good story, I highly recommend it... d:)

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is to love and be loved in return.
~ From "Unforgettable with Love"Natalie Cole


A strong alpha, a young girl who for years loved this sexy Italian! Blackmailed into marriage! Secrets! Passion! How much better can it get? Again, another Lucy Monroe book I couldn't put down once I began. This is such a powerful and intense love story.

Hope Bishop had been raised without parents and by her wealthy grandfather who only had time for his business and business associ

This isn’t a book that I’ve had in line to read or review, mostly because of its age and I acquired it just recently in a box of books someone gave away. Then something I don’t normally do, I forgot to take my current read with me when running errands the other day. Deciding to stop for lunch, I wanted to read. Imagine my surprise and flash of pissed off that I didn’t have my book with me. But then I remembered the box of books in my car. Ha! Sometimes things just work out, and this time I chose ...more

4 ½ Stars! ~ Since she was five, the only family Hope Bishop had was a grandfather who cared more for his business than his granddaughter. Growing up without affection, Hope is vulnerable when the man she’s had a crush on for the past five years, suddenly kisses her on New Year’s Eve. Luciano diVilario has always been curious about Hope, the shy and innocent granddaughter of his business associate. The kiss at midnight had only been meant as a token so that Hope would not be the only woman stand ...more

I really enjoyed this book from all the books in the Ruthless series so far.

Rating: 3.5

I enjoyed this "marriage of convenience" story. Luciano believes Hope to be innocent of her Grandfather's scheming to get them married, then overhears a phone conversation that makes her sound complicit in the arrangement. He then behaves like a jerk, only to learn the truth later when HOPE learns about the entire set-up. Lots of good 'ole Category Romance angst here.

It is very typical and cliche. Your very average contemporary romance books. I expected more angst though...but seems like Ms Monroe doesn't really believe in making the the male lead suffer more.

Another of "it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great"
I think I'm getting burned out on the Presents, honestly. Same story, same author, over and over.
DA4Pups
I thought it would be better. I liked the beginning and the middle. I was invested and the it fell flat toward the end. Not one of Monroe's best.
Marisa Valle
Hope forgave far too easily. Luciano should have suffered a little more & so should her grandfather.
