A Proposal from the Italian Count by Lucy Gordon: Two fathers and a history neither child quite understood, but when they meet as adults will they be able to move past the history?
Jackie Benton was used to being in charge. She had been for so long with her father’s shop that she didn’t really know any other way. When her father passed away and there was no where else to go she wasn’t really certain what was going to happen. That’s when Vittorio Martelli showed up. A real Italian count she wasn’t sure how their father’s had known each other and then the history flowed.
Can these two figure out how to work with the past rather than fighting it?
Ms. Gordon has given her readers a very drifting story. There aren’t many twists and turns but there are two very strong characters that still have this reader scratching her head about how they came together. This isn’t so much a disjointed plot as disjointed characters. There is a HEA but otherwise there isn’t much here.
