"You need me to keep you safe..."

Marietta Vincenti is furious when her brother's best friend--private security tycoon Nicolas César--takes her to his Mediterranean island to protect her from a stalker. Because Marietta isn't weak. She survived the accident that cruelly stole the use of her legs and she'll survive now.

Nico is battle-hardened and scarred, and Marietta crashes against the impenetrable shields that surround this powerful magnate, sensing a kindred spirit beneath. But Nico unearths a passion in her that threatens to expose hopes and dreams she'd buried long before...

Can she take a leap of faith with this man who could undo her completely?

Most romances have cookie-cutter plots. But, when one has a heroine who’s been crippled in her youth, that’s enough to make me sit up and take notice.

Alas, that’s the only thing that endows this with a difference. Marietta is threatened with an unseen admirer, one who’s been leaving increasingly intimate notes for her along with deliveries of expensive floral bouquets. When he leaves a note along with skank underwear in her home, her bodyguard decides she needs to leave her home and life for her own protection. Naturally, the protection isn’t a safe house or heavily guarded hotel (it never is). It’s a private island with a home owned by himself.

From there the two hash out their mutual insecurities (she’s nervous about her ruined legs and he’s cherishing guilt over a botched kidnapping) and tumble into bed. Spoilers? No, not really. You know how such scenarios play out and so do I. I’ve read them countless times and there’s nothing really new here. The stalker is caught and proves so uninteresting and inconsequential, he’s not even given any dialogue.

The epilogue is the only other surprise as it takes place not nine months later (with a new bambino in the family) but ten years after the events of the main novel. While it’s gratifying to find an author who doesn’t automatically close the book on romance characters after they’ve tied the knot and had one baby, it wasn’t enough for me to care about this story.
