ONCE A FERRARA WIFE by USA Bestselling author Sarah Morgan is a February 2012 release by Harlequin Presents.

Laurel Ferrara goes to attend her best friend's wedding in Sicily. The bride is her soon to be ex-husband's sister. Meeting Cristiano Ferrara face to face after she walked out on him two years ago is an agonizing experience. He was an arrogant, stubborn, controlling and a powerful businessman in Sicily.

To save herself from getting hurt she had walked away from her marriage. He'd demanded that she trust him and gradually she'd yielded to that as he would accept nothing less. And then he had let her down so badly she doubted the bruises would ever heal.

Cristiano had never stopped loving Laurel. And he said it at every opportunity! I loved him for saying that!

I read this book when I was down with the flu. It wasn't as heart-wrenching as the other reviews portrayed it to be (I didn't need a box of tissues), but it was a good read, nonetheless. The hero was admirable in his persistence convincing his estranged wife of his love for her. Unlike other reviewers, I completely understood the heroine's issues. It isn't surprising to erect a wall around your heart when you've suffered thru rejections in life and have had no one to rely on but yourself. It's plain unadulterated survival instinct at work. It's funny how tolerant some readers are of male characters with 'walls' (and prefer to swoon over how good looking and powerful they are)yet we call women with the same issues as 'insecure'. That's just sad. We do what we must to survive and the heroine did. She showed strength of character by clearly expressing her ultimate displeasure at being utterly taken for granted and misjudged, not only by her husband but also by her in-laws. She was real and I appreciated her, walls and all.

Laurel Ferrara was on a plane on her way to Sicily she was going to be maid of honour for her best friend Dani. It was through Dani that Laurel had met Cristinao Ferrera Dani's brother, and Laurel's husband , it was two years since she had left Cristiano,yet here she was returning to where she knew she would see him again, but she couldn't deny Dani's request to be part of her wedding party, they had remained friends even after Laurel had left Cristiano. As soon as the plane landed she realised that her estranged husband was there to meet her, looking just as gorgeous as the last time she saw him.
Once again Sarah Morgan has written a winner, this story is emotional romantic and passionate, the characters are well developed and realistic, Laurel had a bad experience just before she left Cristiano, and felt that he had let her down very badly, whereas he thought that she was a coward running away? Now together again after two years can they deal with the past and move forward? I just adored Cristiano he was a wonderful hero he was very convincing in his feelings for Laurel. When he learned the full truth of what had happened it brought him to his knees he had not had any idea of the full truth, and once he does he goes all out to put things right, he was brilliantly written. I just loved the way this author manages to convey the emotions in the story to the reader, I was totally engrossed and could not put this down. Plus a great epilogue that rounded everything off, I really like it when that happens.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cristiano and Laurel Ferrara had been married in a whirlwind romance. Once Cristiano had made Laurel his wife he went about his way securing his empire and taking care of everyone else. Laurel, unable to fully trust because of events in her past, seems to accept this and still believes that if she were to ever reach out to Cristiano, he would be there for her no matter what. After all, she is a strong, independent woman who would never "cry wolf" for no apparent reason, and Cristiano would know this, of course.

However, once Laurel stretches out her hand to her husband, and he places his business deal above her in his priorities, this seems to spell the end of the Ferraras. It was a bad decision. Yet, Laurel can't endure the fact that she gave something that she doesn't freely give and got a slap on the hand for her efforts. Reeling from the disappointment that Cristiano dealt her, and unable to cope with the events surrounding it, Laurel runs away from their marriage and stays out of his way for the next two years. Cristiano's pride was hurt by his wife's abandonment, and not fully understanding why she ran from something that happens all the time, doesn't chase her. When Cristiano's sister conspires to have her best friend, Laurel, attend her wedding, Cristiano is not averse to taking advantage of the situation. Have the Ferrara's come to realize that they each share a hand in the demise of their marriage, and will they be able to look past it, or will they both be too stubborn to see the other's view point?

Once a Ferrara Wife... was a book that I just couldn't find myself setting aside! It was thoroughly engrossing, lively, engaging, and realistic for me.
