Bronte Ludlow was regretting her blind date with Anthony. He was getting drunk and being a jerk. He had brought her to the restaurant now in Ludlow Hall, her family home, and she did not want to make a scene especially with her brother, Alexander, being the manager. They were at odds already.
Alexander was her older brother and she doted on him. When their parents were killed in an accident, they found out that they were in great debt and Alexander was given Ludlow Hall while Bronte was given the Dower House. Not only that; but they found out that Bronte was only a half sister. Her father was Carl Terlezhi, whoever he was. Alexander took this information really hard as did Bronte. Faced with debts, Alexander sold Ludlow Hall to his friend Nico Ferranti. Nico made Alexander a partner in his new hotel business. Bronte was hurt and angry that he sold the Hall without consulting her. After all, it was part of her heritage. Bronte took her inheritance and opened a wedding cake business, Sweet Sensations. It was doing well and with weddings at Ludlow Hall, it could do really well.
Nico didn’t plan on doing much at Ludlow Hall. Alexander wanted to check out the other resorts so Nico came to take care of it for a month. Luckily Alexander had hired competent crew members he wouldn’t have to do much. Bronte takes out her anger at Alexander on Nico, after all , he had the money. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with him; but he forces her to go to dinner with him. She has a lot on her mind, her fight with Alexander, her “date” with Anthony, her rescue by Nico, selling Ludlow, her parents’ death, her broken engagement, meeting her biological father, and her reaction to Nico. Now, Nico gets a call at dinner and tells her that Alexander was in a car wreck in Rome. This brings back the scene at the site of her parents’ deaths. Nico takes charge and she finds herself in romantic Rome with Nico. Will Alexander be all right? Will Bronte?
This book stands out from other romances for several reasons. One is the realistic character development. The main characters have areas of their lives where they are quite confident, and others where they are not so secure. Even the secondary characters are well developed and interesting. And the issues that keep Bronte and Nico from fully committing to each other are not contrived misunderstandings but real fears and concerns. Bronte, still recovering from an emotionally abusive relationship, is naturally distrustful of playboy Nico. And Nico has good reason to tread softly when dealing with the sister of his good friend and business partner, not to mention he has his own emotional scar tissue. Each has secrets that they are not yet ready to share-secrets that could be deal-breakers.
Last but not least, the sex scenes are well-written-very, very hot but never crude. All this is set against the backdrop of an old English estate turned luxury hotel and the street cafes, shops and exciting nightlife of Rome. Definitely a satisfying read and I look forward to more good things to come from CC MacKenzie.
