Duty – or desire?

Revered businessman Falco Orsini has left life in the Special Forces behind – though he uses his powerful skills occasionally, when duty calls. But duty is always on Falco’s terms! When his estranged father asks him to protect a young model who is being stalked, he begrudgingly agrees…only because of the vulnerability he can see in her eyes.

Elle Bissette won’t be a victim – she can take care of herself! And surely big, dark, devilish Falco is dangerous? Because one kiss from a man like him will leave her breathless…

The Orsini Brothers Darkly handsome – proud and arrogant The perfect Sicilian husbands!

Not as good as the first two in this series, but better than Nicolo, Falco has intrigue and suspense that you don't usually find in Modern.

Ms Marton is back in top form with this book!


Rating By Jeanette,12/08/2010

So far have read 3 of the books on the Orsini Bros. Mmmm dreamy characters, and this one doesn't disappoint. Really a romantic hero, wonderful. Can't wait for the book on the last Orsini brother.


Rating By Roanne ,14/07/2010

A dark brooding male hero who keeps himself to himself until he meets Elle a model turned actress and he can't help but want to protect her, even if she doesn't need his help. He helps her anyway. Great plot and great lead characters, you almost want Falco to materialise from out of the page- because he sounds so good!


Rating By R,01/07/2010

After the author's last unusual novel which split readers' opinions down the middle Mrs Marton returns to her mini-series on the Orsini brothers, this being the third of four. Falco is a hero to die for and Ellie is a modern woman who draws your sympathy. There is a tension and energy right from the start which draws you in. Mrs Marton is on top from here - I couldn't put it down! 10 out of 10.
