From secret heir to secret vows…

Elena Ricci has always had a crush on Earl Luca DiSalvo—with his dark and stormy eyes, his protective nature and his royal bearing, who wouldn't? But she believed they were destined to only ever be friends, until one magical evening in Paris…that has dramatic consequences.

Luca is reluctant to marry…but a baby changes everything. So when beautiful Elena reveals her secret, his royal duty means he has no choice—he must make her his wife!

A sweet friends to lovers story! This is the second part of the Mirraccino Marriages duet and is Luca DiSalvo’s story. We met his sister Annabelle in the first half of the duet. The characters are fun and the plot is thick with tension. I read both books, so I understood the undertone of hearing about his Mother’s story … but if I was reading this as a stand-alone, I would have felt slighted in not getting more details of what had happened all those years ago.

Elena Ricci chased her dreams to Paris and is now an accomplished model. When her childhood friend Luca DiSalvo shows up with news from home on the night of a big modeling show, he whisks here off in a celebration of her accomplishments. The lasting effects from that night will change their life forever!

Luca DiSalvo, Earl of Halencia, distanced himself from life long ago, but when he learns Elena is carrying his baby, he can’t stay removed and in the background any longer. He offers to marry Elena and though she wishes it was for different reasons, she agrees to a secret wedding. Will a baby be able to keep them together when they are hiding how they really feel about each other?

Expecting her boss's baby!

Pilot Miranda Marlowe is too sick to fly her plane, and she must face the truth: she's pregnant! She knows well enough that her boss, Cleve Finch, is still grieving for his late wife, so to think, she heads to her sister's new inheritance, Villa Rosa.

Despite the spiders and dust, the Mediterranean palazzo is as gorgeous as ever. Until Cleve turns up with a dramatic offer: a convenient marriage as soon as it can be arranged! It may be the sensible answer…but is it enough for Miranda?

A nice kick-off to the Summer at Villa Rosa series! The first sister whose story we dive into is Miranda Marlowe. The characters are interesting and the plot is diverse … I would have liked to see a little more development of their relationship once they decided to give it a go together, but the build up of the past was done well.

Andie Marlow has been crushing on her boss since the day she turned 18 years old, but he’s still heartbroken over his wife’s death. After an especially hard situation arose and she offered him the only comfort she could think to give, she finds out she’s pregnant and flees to her sister’s Mediterranean getaway.

Cleve Finch doesn’t know why Miranda is cutting off ties, but he’s not going to let her go without an explanation! Once he finds out they are expecting a baby, he offers marriage. Can she bring herself to marry him when she knows she’ll never have his heart? And as their wedding day draws near, will the secrets Cleve has been hiding come to the surface?
