WARNING; THESE COMMENTS CONTAIN SORTA MINOR SPOILERS. this book shot right to my keeper shelf - this is what the Harlequin Presents books are all about: innocent heroine; rich, arrogant hero; setting (Italy & Sicily); but this book has a slight twist; the hero is charmingly clueless about his young wife and women in general; he's convincingly bewildered when he finds out why she left him on their wedding day, how she needs a life of her own; being married to a very rich man is fine but there's more to life than that and he just can't figure out what she means. It's so nice to read about a more human hero, and one who isn't cruel to the woman in his life; and the heroine has just enough backbone to stand up to him, make her needs/feelings known, and insist on getting what she needs and wants. Sometimes plot twists can seem contrived; sometimes the hero can be too domineering, or the heroine too TSTL; fortunately this book was populated by human characters, not cookie cutter ones; I also found the plot, scenes, and settings (from Sicily to Florence, etc) segued smoothly from one to the other. The only way this book could have been better was to have the hero crawl on his hands and knees to beg the heroine's forgiveness, but the book didn't' need this. It's nearly darn near perfect just as it is. I've read one other Sarah Morgan and was very impressed with her writing skills. Luckily for me I have a slew of her books TBR. Can't wait to dig into them. ( )
