    Story line moved quickly Maybe too quickly because all of a sudden hero went from Irish Italian to being referred to as his Latin blood Is that what you get when you cross those two nationalities News to me.

    Read in 2010.I found this novel way too simplistic I mean the only conflict was the heroines stubborness and the hero being an idiot remarks, without thinking Other than that, the novel was pretty darn slow compared to the hero and heroines arguments.
