Publisher's Summary

No one had ever looked at her and seen perfection - until now.
Delicate, titian-haired Theresa Noble has met her father’s associates in the past, but the gorgeous, Italian-born Sandro De Lucci leaves her speechless. Eighteen months into their marriage, however, Sandro has turned to ice. Desperate to escape a relationship that has proven to be as stubbornly passionate as it is cold and hateful, Theresa summons up the courage to ask for a divorce. But before he’ll grant her request, Sandro demands something from Theresa: a son.
The stalemate sickens her. Never mind that Sandro has yet to introduce Theresa to the large family that means so much to him. Or that Theresa overhears her husband on the phone with a mystery woman. Most damning is that Theresa senses, in Sandro’s treatment of her, the behind-the-scenes machinations of Jackson Noble, her cruel father. From the depths of her anxiety, Theresa must seek an empowering truth about the husband who calls her, with such cold affection, his cara, his beloved.

What a surprise!

Wow... what a surprise book! I wasn't expecting such an in depth story...but wow... The female characters was surprisingly... tough...

Most of these sappy romance stories have the women falling all over the man, and just ooze forgiveness after the man hurts them. Women are emotional and you rarely ever see a woman actually get pissed and stay pissed for significant about of time in these type of books.

Teresa was a great character, as she found out why her marriage was horrible from day one, and the man she thought loved her, really didn't.

Alexandro was a good character too, as he found out that Teresa had no knowledge of their fixed marriage, so the entire time, he was hurting her thinking she knew about everything when she didn't.

Nice drama, and awesome smexyness... although it wasn't graphic, it was subtle but intense. I totally loved it. Great to see how Alexandro changed over the course of the story.

Well worth a credit, buy or sale... book is not all that expensive...under 10 bucks!

Nice narration... Good shift in male to female voices...plus the Italian accents weren't all that bad either...

Nice story.. Confusing, annoying accents

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The narration really annoyed me and grew more irritating over time, so I'm not sure I can recommend this audiobook version.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The accents were distracting and confusing. It was hard to understand what Justine Eyre was aiming for. It didn't sound South African .. more like a bad French/Australian accent.

not a patch on Anders other books

Disappointed.
Female victim/Doormat - perpetuating her anxieties. as guilty of punishing her man as he was of her.
whiney, I really didn't engage with the character,
