His unexpected wife!

Cristo Ravelli paces the floor of his father’s Irish country estate, ruing the day he heard the Brophy name. That his father died and left a brood of illegitimate children is hardly surprising, but to silence this scandal Cristo must bring their guardian, the enchanting Belle, in line with his plans!

Belle Brophy’s only concern is her half-siblings. She’ll do anything to provide them with the security she never had. So when this gorgeous Italian offers marriage she won’t say no. But once the ring is on her finger Belle quickly discovers there’s more to a marriage than saying ‘I do’!

Love it!

First thing to say: I just can’t understand why Cristo wanted to marry Belle in the first place. Hahaha. The proposal was just so sudden. But I love Belle for doing everything for her step-siblings. She was such a dear! And I love how Cristo showed the differences between real love and admiration (between his love to Belle and his admiration to Betsy), even though at first Belle misunderstood everything! Good job, Lynne!

Scorching, riveting, enthralling romance!

Rating By Arpita,21/05/2014

Lynne Graham is in a league of her own! It is difficult to catch up with her in her story writing skills! She has the correct ingredients of a family, a dog and a baby to make it a perfect Modern genre. Christo is a hero to die for, in looks and personality, while Belle is a winsome damsel with sterling qualities of a woman who deserves Christo’s love. Superb read and worth buying for the home library.

Good although loses pace

Rating By R,18/05/2014

Started brightly with a typically unique plot which Mrs Graham regularly produces and full of her trademark humour, a heroine who refuses to be a doormat and quirky dialogue. Cesar was a likable character on the whole but the story tended to lose pace towards the end . One of the most interesting aspects was the groundwork laid for a future novel about Cesar's brother Nik which sounds highly intriguing. Not perhaps one of the author's very best but then even slightly below par she's well ahead of the pack and this was overall a highly enjoyable read. Seven point five out of ten

Well Done!

Rating By Khadiga,09/05/2014

Another excellent book from Ms. Graham. Both hero and heroine were very likable characters. The story had a new parameter thrown in that was very human. I could not put the book down, stayed up late and finished it in one go. Looking forward to the brothers's stories.
