His not-so-perfect fiancée…

Emilio Andreoni’s goal is perfection: a corporate king and Italy’s most eligible bachelor, he craves only one more thing to complete his phenomenally successful life – the perfect woman! Once he thought that woman was shy Gisele Carter – until her scandalous goings-on became headline news and he called off their seemingly perfect engagement.

But now Emilio is faced with proof of Gisele’s innocence! He’s determined to win back the only woman who ever truly satisfied him, but first he must persuade Gisele she’s worthy of wearing his diamonds again…

Don’t miss this first instalment in Melanie Milburne’s The Outrageous Sisters duet!

Standard M&B

Rating By R,01/03/2012

Rather than overloading on sexual content this books benefits from Ms Milburne cutting back on this. In terms of the plot you can't really blame Emilio for what he believes of Giselle on the evidence presented. However, while Giselle was a satisfying and likable character with some backbone, I found Emilio too selfish and with really little consideration for her feelings and this really coloured the overall feel of the book. A pleasant read overall but par for M&B. 6.5 out of 10

By now I have learned that in a Melanie Milburne book there is always some twist that you do not see coming and ends in sometimes disastrous consequences and other times with a delicious ending. In the first installment of the stories of duet sisters we meet Gisele, years ago she lost it all, the man she loved, her pride and good name and also the most precious gift she ever knew. Now she is a well established business woman taking each day at a time and trying not to think of the one man that she loved with all her heart and in the end nearly destroyed her. Suddenly the man himself, Emilio, makes a comeback. He has come to apologize but one look at Gisele and he develops a sudden change of plans. He will gain her trust and prove she is worthy of being his woman again. He blackmails and emotionally tortures her into submission, but what will he do when Gisele�s secret is revealed. Will he throw her out and walk away from her again or will he stand by her? Right here is where you will be hanging onto your seat just as I did. I could not wait to see what he would do and the result was a wonderful new and fresh reaction that I have not come across in other similar book before. In true Melanie Milburne form, she weaves a story of passion, intrigue, romance and love with a fabulous twist. I loved how the author takes us back into the past in order to reveal the future of Emilio and Gisele. I also loved how the author made the book feel so real, as sometimes when reading a romance novel the characters and their stories feel so fake. Yes, I know they are but sometimes it just feels so out of touch with reality. Melanie Milburne created a story that had me so emotionally involved that I actually cried real tears right along with Gisele and the terrible pain she goes through.
