A widow with a tragic past, who never thought she’d love again.
Widowed one year after a disastrous marriage, English Lady Grace still carries the visible and hidden scars of her past, yet she’s finally ready for a visit from one of her oldest friends, Valleria’s Princess Catharine. What she didn’t expect was a visit from her brother, Prince Marcello. When she begins to feel the first stirrings of love within her, can she overcome the horrors of her past to make a future with him?
A prince protecting his country, torn from the woman he loves for a dangerous mission.
Prince Marcello, head of Valleria's national security and defense, is still dealing with the fallout from security breaches under his watch. After long days and nights of political maneuvering in London to reclaim Valleria’s and his reputation, he takes a needed break by joining his sister on a visit to her friend, Lady Grace. What he thought would be a relaxing week becomes anything but when he begins to fall in love with her.
In the midst of blooming love, Marcello is asked to lead a secret, dangerous mission to thwart an international threat. Marcello knows he must go, both for his country’s honour and for his own. Will he survive? And, if he does, will Grace be waiting for him upon his return?

❤️Marcello & Grace❤️
I highly recommend this book! We get to watch as Marcello and Grace learn how to trust each other and build a relationship while their enemies are plotting against them. This story is about forgiveness and second chances. Learning how to forgive yourself for situations that were disastrous but out of your control. Very well written and romantic. Marcello won't take no for an answer and won't stop till he owns her heart❤️
Pulls at the heart strings
This book is terrific. We follow up with Marcello and Cat as they go visit one of Cat's friends in England. Marcello starts to fall in love with her as soon as he meets her. However Grace is guarded especially after her abusive husband has caused her much distrust in men. He died in an accident that left Grace with his estate to run along with her family's estate. Marcello is working to regain his reputation after his security slip up with his future sister in law and Queen of Valleria. So he chooses to go on a secret mission. As he spends more time with Grace he can see she is starting to fall in love with him as well. This was a well written story and really pulls at your heart strings with these two young lovers and the struggles they go through in life. Highly recommended reading material.
