15 years old orphan heroine is madly in love with hero. Hero is attracted to her but sadly Faith gets involved with a gang and is wrongly accused of a crime she never committed. Nash does not believe in her innocence and their romance ends before it even begins. Years later Faith is forced to work for Nash, he comes to realize how he misjudged her and they rekindle their romance.

Sweet and angsty read with a lovely HEA.

This is a fantastic example of Penny Jordan’s work at her very best. The story is as follows: Faith (our heroine) has grown up in social care.

Using her knowledge, she then gets a job with a charity which refurbishes houses to become children’s homes. This was a theme which came up again and again in Jordan’s work and it makes you wonder w ...more

Me gustó este libro de Penny Jordan. Y es de los viejitos, de hace quince años. Acá está la esencia de los Harlequin, no sé por qué las autoras nuevas se devanan los sesos para hacer historias mediocres y en el 2000 los argumentos eran tan sencillos pero satisfactorios...

I sympathized with Faith and admired her for preserving despite the adversities she'd faced. By the time Faith turned 15, she'd been orphaned and/or abandoned by everyone she cared for: (view spoiler)

Years later Faith is reunited with Nash as she finds herself working for him. I found their romance believable cons

Las historias de Penny me encantan porque aunque son cortitas y sencillas logran emocionante y logran transportarte a ese mundo del que habla en sus historias y esta no es la excepción.
