Ravelli's Defiant Bride

Ravelli's Defiant Bride

His unexpected wife! 

Cristo Ravelli paces the floor of his father's Irish country estate, ruing the day he heard the Brophy name. That his father died and left a brood of illegitimate children is hardly surprising, but to silence this scandal Cristo must bring their guardian, the enchanting Belle, in line with his plans! 

Belle Brophy's only concern is her half siblings. She'll do anything to provide them with the security she never had. So when this gorgeous Italian offers marriage, she won't say no. But once the ring is on her finger Belle quickly discovers there's more to a marriage than saying "I do"!

    Good, sweet marriage of convenience story but for me the hero was not alpha enough and there was not enough angst. Like my friend Vashti said the background of Nic and Betsy's story has me very intrig...
