Quick note, it does have a small paranormal element, which I am generally not a fan of.
It wasn’t too bad here. In fact, I would have preferred it be left out, but anyway. I can’t quite put my finger on why this wasn’t a five for me.
I’m not sure I connected with the H and h as much as I wanted to. The h was a tad to spunky and the H a tad too gr Really interesting.
The h was a tad to spunky and the H a tad too gruff. Just a little bit! However, I thought they were hot and sweet and perfect for each other, so there ya go. May 03, Cheesecake rated it it was amazing Shelves: John is a farmer in America now, after being raised in an orphanage in Italy from a young age.
He had contracted with Mariana’s father back in Italy, to marry Francesca Mariana’s older sister. But Francesca died of a fever after only a few months. So John asked for his money back and instead is sent Mariana.
The story starts with John opening the door to a bedraggled desalfo woman, She’s 20ish and he’s 30ish he wasn’t expecting. John is a gruff, big man with an ugly scar on his face, hiding a sweetly thoughtful man. He knows he is ugly and is pretty self conscious about it.
He doesn’t think much of this skinny girl who is meant to be his next bride. But there is little choice because Mariana has no money and nowhere to go and his neighbours know she is there. Mariana has a sweet disposition but isn’t a doormat. She is inquisitive and quick to improve her English, and far from a doormat. They have 4 days before the local preacher returns and can marry them. Four days to get better aquainted, nudge nudge wink wink ; The blurb suggests that the story is pretty kinky, and maybe it is by standards in the dooreen ‘s, but I didn’t find it too much, or too much of the story.
It was pretty spicey without getting into ebdding or bondage. There is some anal play. And Mariana isn’t very shocked, beddlng pretty accepting. She does after all, have a curious nature. There is a ghostly presence that may be her sister, but don’t worry, it is a small but fitting part of the tale.
There is some mystery about what went on in his first marriage. Overall I found it quite romantic and well done. I’d dorene to read more by this author but it all seems to be BDSM stuff and less on the romance side. And she hasn’t written anything since View all 8 comments. Mar 24, Elisa Rolle added it. This is a romance that is much more better of what you can think reading the blurb.
The blurb describes the story of a mail order bride very willing to acclompish the kinky desires of his new husband; so you can buy it thinking to read a dirty novel about wild sex in bed and not only He has had an hard life, and you can think that also is behaviour is h Yhe is a romance that is much more better of what you can think reading the blurb. He has had beddijg hard life, and you can think that also is behaviour is hard, but instead he is only worried to not be good enough for his new wife.
Mariana is sent to John from Italy to take the places of her older sister, died few weeks after her marriage with John. She is a little thing with a strong attitude and a gentle soul. John is not an handsome man, he is tough and has a ugly scar on the face, ghe Mariana can see behind, sees the tender man.
And also she can feel him, by night: John is always caring and makes love to her, not only sex. John is a very passionate man, and makes love to Mariana in every way an nineteen century man could think if he hasn’t read the Kamasutrabut always with the thought to not displeasure Mariana.
Indeed this romance is very “traditional”, like an Historical Harlequin with a little more sex. Jul 20, Carolyn F. It had the normal miscommunications but they didn’t drag on and on.
I liked this book so much I’m going to read some of the author’s other works. Marianna is the 2nd daughter sent to John as a mail order bride. He wasn’t too happy with the first one so he’d like to have the money. But she’s here and if he doesn’t take her it will look bad for him. Speaking of looking bad, he has a terrible scar on his face that Marianna’s sister hated and now he’s trying to not have Marianna reac Wonderful story!
Speaking of looking bad, he has a terrible scar on his face that Marianna’s sister hated and now he’s trying to not have Marianna react the same way. She thinks he’s disgusted with her. Spoiler Finally, he tells her how she worked her way into his heart and that he doesn’t want her to leave when it looks like things are going to end.
Yes it was practically the last page but it was just perfect where the book ended and how it ended. Aug 06, Julz rated it liked desalvoo Shelves: This is a kind of a mail-order bride type story, except the hero came about his first wife who is already dead at the beginning of the book by paying a bride price to an Italian father. Upon hearing about the older sister’s death, the little sister has come from Italy, sight unseen, as a replacement.
The hero is mean and ugly and gives the heroine a hard time. The rest of the story is 3.
The rest of the story is about a both of them thinking beddint other one doesn’t like him or her but has lots of sex Lots of positons too.
I actually couldn’t imagine a lot of homesteaders doing it the way these two went at it. So overall, this was two-thirds erotica and the rest about Italian immigrants playing house in Pennsylvania during the s. Oh, and there’s a ghost giving whispery advice on the wind.

Bedding the Beast
besding My only quibble is that Mariana was a bit too sweet and forgiving and John was a bit too harsh. They let their misunderstandings about John’s first marriage go on for too long practically the end of the book. I would’ve loved an epilogue so we can see them happy as a married couple. I guess I would’ve preferred a longer book instead of a novella. Aside from these I love a good “Beauty and the Beast” retelling and this one scratched that itch.
Aside from these small issues, I really did enjoy this book. Aug 09, Su rated it it was ok. If it had more substance and covered a longer period of time it could have been a more likely plot.
