Spending the holidays with the man who broke her heart is Monet’s worst nightmare. But when commanding Marcu’s children urgently need a nanny, she can’t refuse. Landing back in his aristocratic world, where free-spirited Monet never belonged, is bittersweet torture…
Marcu doesn’t anticipate his overly ordered life being disrupted by the enchanting woman Monet’s become. Duty has always dictated his actions, making Monet, with her infamous family history, strictly forbidden. But when their long-simmering passion burns intensely enough to melt the snow, will Marcu finally claim his Christmas Cinderella…?
A magical Christmas romance.
Monet Wilde spent her teenage years in the Uberto palazzo in Palermo where she fell in love with Marcu Uberto only to end up with a broken heart. With a loan and a plane ticket to London, Monet put the Uberto family way in the back of her mind. She worked hard for her new life managing the bridal department at a department store.
The last thing Monet wanted to do was to leave her job at the peak of the busy Christmas season. But she owed Marcu a favor and when he asked Monet to repay it, he wouldn’t take no for an answer. He needed her as a temporary nanny to his three children while he set off on a Christmas holiday to propose to his girlfriend. But when old memories and feeling return, anything can happen.
I got totally swept away in this book. Everything from the characters to the setting, in the Italian Alps, was just right. I couldn’t ask for more. There were a lot of memorable scenes. Of course this is a romance book and I was glad to see Monet and Marcu get their happily ever after, but the children are such a big part of the story too. I couldn’t help but fall for them just like Monet did. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a feel-good Christmas romance.
