Married couple Sara and Nicolas Santino become estranged after Nicolas believes Sara cheated on him (which she didn’t). After Sara (and Nicolas’s) daughter is kidnapped Nicolas tries to help out…

I really liked the heroine Sara. She was sweet, shy, and classy. I like the way, as the book progressed, that she became a stronger person who started standing up for herself. I didn’t particularly like Nicolas. He was cold, heartless, and a total idiot at times. He supposedly loved Sara but never listened to her or took her side in anything. His father Alfredo was trying to break them up, Sara tried to tell him, he wouldn’t listen, he’d get angry. Sara was shy, had a hard time fitting into a different way of life than she was used to, and Nicolas wasn’t very helpful. He was gone away from home a lot. They both had a sweet little daughter (Lia) that Nicolas didn’t acknowledge because he believed that Sara was a cheater and Lia wasn’t his, so Nicolas lost years of his daughter’s life. Nicolas’s father Alfredo, who disliked Sara, was behind the cheating set-up... Sara was to meet Nicolas at a hotel that they frequently went to. Eventually another man, an acquaintance of Sara’s, shows up at her hotel room door (who was in cahoots with Alfredo) and embraced her right when Nicolas came. Nicolas was furious and didn’t wait around for explanations and sent Sara away for good. Since Sara seemed like such a sincere and shy person Nicolas could have at least listened once to what she had to say.

But I did find the storyline engrossing which kept me reading. Even towards the end of the book some of the characters I didn’t like started to become a bit more likable.

This was a very angst-filled read. The hero Nicolas did sort of spoil it for me at times. Sara and Lia deserved better. But he did seem genuinely upset at the end. ( )

Book description
They've never stopped being married...

Nicolas Santino doesn't accept that Lia is his daughter. He believes Sara, his wife, cheated on him with another man, and Lia is the result of that betrayal.

So Sara and Nicolas are separated - until the silence between them is forcibly broken - Lia has been kidnapped! Nicolas knows he is the only one who can secure the little girl's safe return, but it means he must go back to Sara - and find that, even after three long years, she still wears his ring...
