But Dominick's passionate kisses soon convinced Gina she was no longer awestruck, but lovestruck -- and she longed to be trapped in Dominick's arms forever.

To have gotten past his guards, Dominick knew the lovely lady who appeared in his bed must be a spy. To discover her mission he planned to woo her with kindness and keep a close eye on her actions -- not a hardship, he had to admit, as he admired her slender figure and fiery green eyes. Soon, however, he realized his actions were no subterfuge and as he held the beauty in his arms he knew he had uncovered a love for all time.

I truly enjoyed this one, I have just recently discovered Flora Speer, and have enjoyed her way of writing. It flows smoothly and she charms her way into her readers hearts through her tempting plots , and her characters are endearing, and had be turning the pages as fast as I could read them. Gina feeling alone in the world, is sent back in time, and finds the one man that can complete her fully. She is able to learn to trust and to go down the road of true enduring love. Dominick, after being betrayed by his past wife, finds it hard to trust any woman anymore, however Gina is different from any other one he has ever met. She fills a whole within him, and he realizes that their love is worth any risk. To say what this book was in one word is: Enchanting (through and through)
