Now a hit Netflix film!
The sexy and deeply romantic internationally bestselling novel that inspired the blockbuster movie.
Laura Biel and her boyfriend are on a dream vacation in beautiful Sicily. On the second day of their trip, her twenty-ninth birthday, she is kidnapped. Her kidnapper is none other than the head of a powerful Sicilian crime family, the incredibly handsome, young Don Massimo Torricelli, who is determined to possess her at all costs. Massimo has his reasons. During an earlier attempt on his life, a vision appeared before his eyes: a beautiful woman, identical to Laura. After surviving the attack, he vows that he will find the woman in his vision and make her his own. No matter what.
For 365 days, Massimo will keep Laura captive in his palatial estate and attempt to win her heart. If she doesn’t fall in love with him during this time, he will let her go. But if she tries to escape at any point, he will track her down and kill her entire family.
Soon Laura develops a fascination with her handsome and powerful captor. But as a precarious, risky relationship forms between them, forces outside their control threaten to tear them apart...

Amazing book, couldn’t put it down. Definitely worth reading it!
Much more substance than the movie,I couldn’t put it down. Now waiting on the next book.
Great read, a few concerns
i really enjoyed reading this novel, I read it in a week, and it was very hard for me to put it down after I got started. However, I believe the novel is better towards the middle portion, the beginning is not as sexy as I had anticipated and the movie pretty much summed up the first 75 pages perfectly. As far is plot goes, I am absolutely fasincated with the plot line, and enjoyed the chemistry of both main characters. I did find the mood swings to do very hard to deal with as a reader. Laura’s reactions and Massimo’s behaviors were at often times just straight annoying. I just sat there thinking “why is that even necessary” at multiple points, but overall, I loved the story that unfolded by the end. Also her heart condition, straight annoying.
