The Italian's Stolen Bride
Marriage --for possession... or passion?
Luciano Peretti may still be the handsome and hot-blooded man she fell for six years ago, but now Skye wants nothing to do with him! She can't forget Luc's rejection of her then, or how she refused his wicked family when they tried to bribe her to end her pregnancy. Since then, she's raised her son single-handedly--poverty-stricken...more
I was very wrong.
The heroine was very normal and frankly nice and likeable. The hero was a strong man with decisive ideas, but he listened to his feelings and really wanted the best for his former beloved and child. He clear ...more
Well, I can certainly see why she's so protective of this one. This is a real gem and I'm going to check on eBay to see if I can get a copy for my own keeper shelf!
Great book all around. Heroine isn't a push over. Hero is horrified at his family. Great kid too!

It was a happy ending. He messed up and he groveled a bit for her. He knew what he had done was hurtful to her and he had to build up her trust.

A deathbed confession and I was hooked. I was just going to read a chapter and go to sleep but finished the book.
That blew it for me.
However, after reading this book (this kinda plot actually) after maybe 2-3 years, my interests are not the same >.<
Sure, i still think it's true love but being married, then there's a reunion, that's better!

The reason I rated this a 3 out of 5 instead of a 4 is that it just felt a bit too one-note for me. The father of the hero was pretty much a stock figure f ...more
I remember liking the book, except that the means the hero's parents used to get him to dump the heroine involved featuring their other son in what amounts, in my mind, to pornography. That part just creeped me out and is the reason I am giving this 3 stars instead of the 4 I would normally give to a book I remember with pleasure a fe ...more
