For better… or for bedding?

Laurel Ferrara wouldn’t know a happy ending if she fell over it – of course her whirlwind wedding was always going to end in disaster. But it wasn’t as simple as just walking away. From the moment she is summoned back to Sicily the shivers of unease set in…

The command comes from legendary billionaire Cristiano Ferrara, the husband she can’t forget – but it might as well have come from the devil himself. The outrageously gorgeous Cristiano’s power is a potent reminder of this Sicilian dynasty’s unbreakable rule: once a Ferrara wife, always a Ferrara wife…

Mixed feelings

Rating By R,08/11/2011

Compellingly written with sharp and urgent dialogue the whole story is however tainted for me by the hero Cristiano whom I cannot respect nor have any sympathy for after his actions in continuing a business deal after refusing to help his wife Laurel who was in the process of losing their baby. Meeting again after two years while there were some faults on Laurel's side, Cristiano was breathtaking in his arrogance, selfishly continuing to blame her for everything which had gone wrong with their marriage and continually trying to justfy and excuse his own actions. I was somehow left with the uneasy feeling that, when it came, Cristiano's "redemption" would not last for long and I fully understood Laurel's reservations. Six out of ten

So Good!

Love the hero ... his attitude ... his passion ... even his vulnerability that comes from simply being a clueless man. Love his support of the heroine once he understood. Well crafted story. Understood the heroine's strengths as well as her insecurities. Good writing! Sarah helped us understand the characters completely.

Loved it....

Loved this one. I totally understood how Laurel might have been scared to trust Cristiano again but loved how he ended becoming that person once more for her. I absolutely loved the special gift he organised for her (won't spoil it,in case you have not read it) but i could just imagine my reaction to it as it's something i have always wanted as well. :-) All in all, a great book!

Very much enjoyed this story from Sarah Morgan. As usual her characters are spot on and Christiano was a wonderful leading man. Excellent read!

Good one

Rating By Aline,07/11/2011

Very catching, from the first page, could not leave it till the end. I loved Cristiano but i found Laurel's reaction very exagerated. We are used to more mature heroins from Mrs. Morgan.

Great book!

A absolutely wonderful story of old love reunited ! Christano was a brilliant character that oozed confidence and power and I for one would fall to my knees if encountering this man. The heroine was a bit different from others I have read before she was yes strong in her own way but also weak and that made for a really interesting read. It was a real page turner ! Well done Sarah!

Good Book

Rating By Jeanette,23/02/2012

I loved the beginning all the pomp and do of a real fairytale. I always buy SM books, but I missed the usual humour you get in some of her books. Good book though.

Loved it!

Rating By Victoria,27/11/2011

Loved,loved,loved,loved this book. This is one of the best M&B Modern series I have read. Christiano is deliciously sexy and becomes seriously sensitive. Laurels past traumas leave you wishing for the fairytale ending for her. Great plot lines, great dialogue, steamy sex scenes and the perfect ending. ITS A MUST READ!

Lovely reunion story

Rating By Stella,02/09/2014

It's been a while since I read any Mills & Boon but this one has made me remember how much I used to enjoy them. This isn't the first book I've read by Sarah Morgan but I didn't realise she was a M&B author too so I'll have to see if there are any I've missed. I hope there are lots more as she writes such great stories and I'm always charmed by her characters. The chemistry between Cristiano and Laurel was electric and I was rooting for them the whole way through. I don't always enjoy romances to have friction and misunderstandings that need to be worked through but here I just lapped it up. For anyone who is familiar with M&B type romances it's quite predictable- separated couple who are thrown back together during a family member's wedding have to work through their differences while trying to convince themselves and each other that they've moved on. I just love stories about reunions with ex's. They sometimes frustrate me because a lot of the misunderstandings could be avoided if they would just sit down and talk to each other but they spend all of their energy trying to hide their true feelings and thinking the worst of each other. They do say that the path to true love never runs smooth, I suppose and it wouldn't be much of a story if they sorted it all out in the first chapter after a quick chat. Wonderful setting of Sicily and Cristiano was a great Italian hero. Laurel was just the right mix of strong yet vulnerable and I actually shed a tear or two as they worked out their differences. Lovely story and one I'd go back to. If you're looking for another great Sarah Morgan story, try The Tortured Rake (Bad Blood - Book 1) it's every bit as wonderful as this one.

This MODERN had the quality that it engaged the reader into wanting to know how the characters resolved their issues. Laurel didn't leap from the page as some heroines in MODERN(S) I have read recently, but Sarah Morgan's skills as a writer means she keeps the reader engaged...
