Businesswoman Tessa Cosma knows how to ride the wave of chaos in corrupt, post-communist Romania to maintain the lifestyle she so carefully built for herself. Her ideal world shatters when an unplanned pregnancy ends after a brutal assault. To compound her troubles, she must unravel a fraud accusation that threatens her reputation and career. Alessandro Santinelli, the charismatic Italian banker with whom she spent an incredible, lust-filled night months ago, comes to her rescue. But Tessa refuses his help and chooses to rise above the devastating forces of death, betrayal and fraud to prove her innocence and discover her true self. Throughout Tessa's journey toward forgiveness and redemption, Alessandro guards over her from a distance. He provides her the space and time she needs to heal, meanwhile hoping to recapture something he believes was lost and unattainable. ================================= 5 STARS REVIEW Camelia Miron Skiba does a fantastic job of telling us Tessa's story, pulling the reader into the heart of both Tessa and Alessandro. Their actions - and reactions - are realistic to the circumstances they find themselves in. You'll find yourself rooting for the both of them to find the healing they search for. That the story is set in the authenticity of Romania only makes the story that much richer. What a great glimpse into a place that many of us have never been able to visit."-- Cindy C Bennett, Author of "Geek Girl" and "Heart on a Chain"-- 5 STARS REVIEW "I really enjoy romance novels like this. While a good majority are very cut and dry, this one takes you on an emotional journey with Tessa and Alessandro, and the very unconventional development of their relationship. It moves from majorly being a sexual attraction to something deeper, something that heals Tessa and Alessandro both, without them even realizing it. I also liked the fact that we get to see this develop in a woman not from a first world country, one with different ideals and different morals and an entirely different approach to life and love and family. This book goes on such an adventure, but one that is more mental and emotional than physical. There are plenty of twists and turns, a couple surprises, and an ending that will leave you satisfied but still wanting more. You won't be able to put the book down once you start, trust me."-- Jennifer Pugh, GoodReads Review--
