The Reluctant Wife

A Contemporary Romance

About the Book

Abby Taylor walked out on her irresistible husband three years ago. Now she has no choice but to return to Italy to ask him for a favor. To pay for her grandmother’s heart operation she needs his money, but it comes with strings attached.

Conte Dante Lombardi has it all–an Italian villa, a successful family business, and a noble title. But he needs a child to carry on his legacy and time is running out. He also hopes to satisfy the desire Abby rouses in him. As Abby uncovers why he’s in such a hurry for a child, she falls in love with him again … just as she realizes it might be impossible to keep her end of the deal.

“Overall, The Reluctant Wife was a fantastic story that was centered around things I don’t read about every day while still featuring characters that made me so happy. Honestly, they made my tummy all tingly and happy feeling. That is never a bad thing, my friends. ;)”

Jessica (Stuck in Books)‘s review – 5 Stars

“The story is certainly never boring; there is always something getting in the way of their final happiness, though the epilogue is a lovely tribute to the final issue.  All in all, this is a well-done contemporary category romance that works on every level.”

– Monique N., My Book Addiction Reviews – 4 Stars
