The Italian’s One-Night Baby

Lynne Graham

The Blurb

With this ring…

Beautiful doctor Ellie Dixon once rejected Rio Benedetti’s passionate advances – and the fiery Italian hasn’t forgotten the insult! Ellie’s arrival in Italy, bearing an antique sapphire ring and claiming to be the daughter of Rio’s godfather, reawakens his rage…and a devastating longing!

I thee claim!

Rio won’t stop until he uncovers Ellie’s captivating curves – her heated surrender can’t come quickly enough! Facing the consequences of their abandon, Rio realises Ellie’s pregnancy will break his godfather’s heart. There’s one solution: Rio will have to seduce her all the way to the altar…

The Review

Ellie Dixon, our heroine, is a junior Doctor, Sister to Queen, Polly, of Dharia. She is a vision in the eyes of our hero, Rio Benedetti, all red curls and emerald green eyes. 

Images of entrancing sirens or bewitching mermaids came to my mind but with a tongue as volatile as a wild cat! I thought she was a strong heroine and quick witted. But a fool when it came to the attentions of our hero.

Ellie wanted to find the truth of her heritage on a journey of self-discovery in Italy but little did she know it would bring her into the company of the man she had so harshly rejected two years before. 

Rio Benedetti, a “hit it and quit it kind of guy…” Had his advances spurned by Ellie and the distasteful rejection has still not been forgotten! Ellie describes Rio as a ,

“Man-whore?” yet as “hot as hellfire…” 

I thought our hero, Rio, was strong and intoxicating, lithe and panther-like. Rio’s character had me giggling like a pubescent teen. Don’t we all love a man with self-confidence, a man who knows where he’s going in life, completely in control? But would risk it all for the love of a woman? Rio’s character is that man.

“She had never met such a stunningly good-looking male as Rio and when she had, she had caved as fast as a brick shed on sand foundations…”

The plot gained speed very quickly, with enough twists and turns to keep you gripped. The dialogue and banter between our characters is witty, funny and insightful.

I did love the moral of this story. Or the moral that connected with me the most. ‘It doesn’t matter where you start in life, your past, your genes… You are unique and special. Fight for the person you are, be who you are meant to be and don’t let circumstance out of your control dictate who you are!’ 4/5 stars from me.
