Adorei!
Não tinha tantos clichés como costuma ter, foi bem desenvolvido e a escrita esta boa.
Gostei do desenvolver da história, apesar de ter ficado triste pelo livro não ter 30 páginas ( da 129 à 162), porém essas páginas não fizeram falta para o desenrolar da história.

Muito bom!!

THE PREMISES AND INSTIGATOR OF THIS STORY WAS PREPOSTEROUS!

OUR HERO is a Duke who 10 years later returns from Italy and is now ready to settle down. He then meets the one woman he vows never to meet again, Verity who came into his room one night and they had sex. What puzzles me the most is how Verity even came up with the idea to sleep with him for the sake of knowing what it is like to be made love to when she's going to marry an older man, unless she is in love with the Duke herself.

"Nonostante il suo fermo proposito non potè impedirsi di chiedersi quando e come la ragazza timida e paurosa che aveva conosciuto un tempo fosse diventata la donna vibrante e risoluta, capace di tenerlo a bada in uno scambio di battute... Dannazione!"

Le schermaglie tra i due protagonisti rendono questo libro un romance classico, quello che invece lo differenzia dalla "media" è il fatto che i due protagonisti si rivedano dopo dieci anni di lontananza più maturi e più

It was a nice sweet story with a rather predictable conflict. Still worth a read.
