"Wow, this is such a powerhouse romance, I was thrilled from the get-go. A fabulous take on one of my fave romance tropes, the marriage of convenience. Done with style and so much swoony emotion it was dazzling. And set in Italy, oh my. Gorgeous. Thanks, Annie! You super-star! ~ Miranda, Breathless in the Bush

"With a strong independent heroine with hint of vulnerability and a strong, sexy and caring hero is what a great romantic novel needs. Once I began reading it, I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. Congratulations Annie West for another wonderful story." ~ Rosalie, Goodreads

"Lush, exotic and sexy this story transports readers to the glittering world of the uber-wealthy. Set is exquisitely beautiful northern Italy—think Venice and Lake Como and you’ll get the picture—there is plenty for readers to dream about both in terms of the scenery and in terms of the gorgeous clothes and gorgeous homes in which the story takes place. Despite all the gorgeousness, this is a story of two lonely people who have spent their lives trying to prove their worth ... It was fascinating watching them discover each other and learn that passion is so much better when accompanied by love." ~ Shelagh, GoodReads

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I'm sure I'll be going back for a re-read soon enough. The sexual tension, the emotional conflict and the intensity between the characters had me hooked from the first page and the ending was beautiful." ~ Zeba, Goodreads

"Oh, how I loved this story! Full of intense and Romance! " ~ Kindle Customer, Amazon

"I never miss a book by Annie West. Her flawed heroes are handsome and brooding and Alessandro Sartori is no exception. The boardroom battles against the glamorous backdrop of fashion design provides a taste of the exotic in this fabulous Cinderella story. The development of the relationship between the substitute groom and the bride is entertaining and, as usual, Annie has delivered a happy ever after that brings a smile to your face." ~ Toni H, Goodreads

"This is a sensual and beautiful story, seeing Alessandro show Olivia what love and passion are was fabulous..." ~ Helen, BookBub
