When a story's premise is farfetched right out of the gate, it's hard for me to get on board. I did stick with The Tuscan's Revenge Wedding and finished it, but it was a disappointing read. At the start of the story I wondered why the Count didn't just send plane tickets with a note explaining the direness of the situation. Why was it so important for him to fly across the Atlantic to personally escort her? Surely if he knew the city where she lived and where she worked, he would have contacted her first by phone. If she didn't come, what possible difference would it have made to him? I didn't buy that he would have left his comatose and possibly dying sister alone to escort a stranger to Italy. It made no sense, nor did the revenge-banging angle. Maybe a hundred years ago, but not today.
The spineless heroine just sort of caved to everything de Frenza demanded. There was no reason she couldn't have an hour or two to settle her affairs. Why the rush? Also, no employer today would allow a complete stranger to "arrange" for their employee to be gone for several days without speaking to the employee first. Amanda's employer should have called the cops and said, " A man just called and said my employee will be out for several days. Here's the number from caller ID. You better check his crawl space."
Another WTF moment... Carita's and Jonathan's car went over a cliff throwing pregnant Carita onto the rocks while Jonathan went over the cliff. He broke ribs and sustained all kind of injuries, yet he somehow dragged himself up the mountain to hear what would possibly be Carita's last request... not that he always love her, not that her baby be saved at any cost, but that she really wanted to meet his sister. It was just silly.
The relationship between Nicholas and Amanda didn't seem genuine. I get it that he is rich, hot, and jaded, but I didn't feel a connection between them.
