Mostly just an average read for me. There was some angst, but overall the H was far less of an entertaining alpha jerk than I've come to enjoy. It was obvious from the first that his feelings for the h went much deeper than he let on. He did have a few jerk moments, but she had left him and hurt his pride. Plus her method of leaving him did give him some reason to believe she was shallow and mercenary. She told him she "wasn't having fun anymore" instead of admitting that she thought he was ...more

Gostei do livro, foi uma boa leitura, se bem que houve alguns fatores que deixaram um pouco a desejar. Acho que esta história poderia ter ido bem mais longe, limitou-se à fórmula de sucesso do costume, em que a protagonista (view spoiler) Acho que a autora teria ganho se introduzisse outros fatores, que pode ...more

I can't begin to tell you how moved I was by this book. It was intense, passionate and I cried for days!

THE ITALIAN’S FORCED BRIDE by Kate Walker is magnificent; a stunning and powerful love story that I immediately had to read from cover to cover. This love story of Dom and Alice had me in tears, angry and sighing all at once.

Alice who has been Domenico’s Parrisi’s lover for months realizes that she loves him but he is incapable of returning that love. She also overhears gossip one evening tha

Passion and emotion are equally powerful in author Kate Walker's poignant romance, "The Italian's Forced Bride". Domenico Parrisi never gave his heart, and no woman ever walked out on him. What he started, he brought to a halt when the time came. He worked hard, building his own fortune in the computer industry, and when he had time, he played just as hard as he worked. When he met Alice Howard, he never expected that she would be the exception to the rule. On a working holiday in Florence, ...more

I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn't live there for very long. The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home. I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five—all girls—in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands on.

Even before I could write I was making up s
