He’s fallen twelve thousand feet from the sky… Now he knows exactly what he wants!

Daredevil Rafael Revaldi has always lived for the moment. But, having cheated death, the Conte di Monterrato is focused on the future. He needs an heir, but to get one he’ll face his toughest challenge yet—winning back his estranged wife!

Lottie returns to the castle she once called home with newfound strength. The intense sensual connection between Lottie and Rafe remains, but so do the emotional scars of their marriage. Can Lottie risk her heart again to give them the child they both so desperately want?

Praise for Andie Brock

Andie Brock was the Harlequin So You Think You Can Write 2013 competition runner-up with the fantastic story that has now become her debut novel for Harlequin Presents….The Last Heir of Monterrato

The Last Heir of Monterrato 4* RT Book Review
Brock’s debut is a heartrending second-chance romance lavishly set in a charming fictional European principality. Her bitter hero and devastated heroine are convincing, and their always-just-out-of-reach love finally culminates in a touching HEA.

Not a story for Modern Romance genre!

Rating By Arpita,15/01/2015

It was a disappointment for a fan of Modern genre to read the opening lines of this story. It fits the medical series to a ‘T’. Not only does the hero have physical scars the heroine has pregnancy issues. This is off putting for readers who like to escape into a world of fantasy and escape from the harsh realities of life. The dialogue between the characters is satisfactory. A no go for a fan of Modern genre.

Tugs at the heart strings!

Mediocre start

I have personally always been a major fan of daredevils, the pure thrill and excitement of these badboys is addictive. So of course I was thrilled when I learned that this read had such a hero, and my oh my what a hero he was! The read introduces us to Rafael Revaldi, he has always lived for the moment, then his whole life changes when he cheats death. This leads him to know exactly what he wants, and that is an heir. But to make it happen he has to focus all his attention on winning back the heart of his estranged wife Lottie. Lottie returns to the castle she once called home, but with her she brings a newfound strength , she's not the same woman she use to be and she 'll be darned if she goes down without a fight again, if only she can carry her strength to full. The intense sensual connection between her and Rafe is still there and it's hotter then ever, but the emotional scars from their marriage still lingers. Can she stand her ground and walk away from heartache and pain or will she once again lose her heart when if she fails to give them both the child they both so desperately want? I adored this read to pieces, the raw emotional hurt from the characters had me in tears for the best part of the book, which of course is always a definite sign that an author knows what she or he is doing! The characters of Rafe and Lottie both pulled my hearstrings to the point where I honestly wished I could climb inside the book and just fix it all, the author let the hurt, anger and pain play out perfectly, it was truly as if I was right there watching the characters tear each other to pieces. Through both characters the author showed , that we all react differently when life fails us, some of us lash out, others simply go into a little cocoon of self defense. But at the end of the day which ever action we take hurts our changes of being able to really get back up again, stand our ground and let the world know we are stronger then what ever life trows at us. The cold hearted method taken by Rafe to inform Lottie of his decision was one written so well it sent chills down my spine, and of course I thought " What a bastard! " and then I wondered what really lurks behind the cold man of steel? And let me tell you when the author began digging into the past of these characters and the cold hearted methods they both take, I was an absolute mess, I bawled like a baby, I shouted in outrage and I yelled with frustration, so many various emotions ran through me and without a doubt this author got to my heart and soul! I am taking away a message of life can knock us down so badly it feels as if there is simply no way back up again. But the trick is to find the right balance to get back up again, you can pretend all is fine and make everyone believe you 're having a high old time, but when you are alone the darkness overcomes you. There is a thin line between getting back up to the point where you are able to move on without regrets and accept life for what it is, and getting back up but still leaving a part of you on the ground begging for help. Never give up, always fight and most importantly communicate and tell the truth to those that matter, if you don't there simply is really no way you will ever fully get back up again and be able to face life. I highly recommend this read for all fans of romance reads with amazing twists and turns, pure raw emotional heartache , stunning passion and a wonderful message of love conquering all. A brilliant debut Andie! 5/5 star review " Death tore them apart, can a new life will bring them together? "

Great theme but Andie 'needs to brush up on her dialogues

I lost interest after the first three chapters . The conversations were irritating and unfocussed.. The characters were card board like. This was the only disappointing book out of the Jan 2015 modern releases...

I loved this fabulous debut by Andie Brock. The author's beautiful writing style, original and compelling story, and emotionally scarred characters really drew me into the book, right from that gripping first line. At times, I wanted to feel a little bit more from the hero, as I felt almost as shut out as the heroine did, but still an engrossing, satisfying and highly recommended read. Congratulations on an impressive debut Andie, and looking forward to reading your next :)
