Two virgins meeting for the first time through an arranged betrothal find deep love, great passion and the strongest desire for one another through equality in their inexperience and eagerness to learn and discover... More
After receiving news from her parents of a possible betrothal, Alessandra, an 18 year old with an ingrained belief that no-one would ever wish to marry her, finds herself in a love so great that at times she cannot breathe. Married to someone as inexperienced as herself, she finds herself on a sexual journey of learning and exploration. The combination of their mutual inexperience contributes to her finding a degree of emotional and physical love that she has never before realised could exist.
That love will be tested by someone from her past with sinister intentions, jealous of the physical love she shares with her husband. Someone set on doing whatever he can do - whatever he must do - to have the woman he desires, no matter the cost.
"Alessandra is also about the journey of a shy timid girl who grows into her new role of a strong loving wife and mother. Showing that it’s not what’s on the outside but the inside that matters, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the transformation of Alessandra throughout the story and her journey was a real highlight of this story."
"This book hooked me in right away … The love story between Alessandra and Edward was touching. The fact that he wasn't like most leading men in a story, made him even more real. The fact that she loved him in spite of it, made me fall in love with her … I highly recommend this book. It will take you on a journey that will be filled with so much fun."
"What a delightful tale of love and family … this whole book felt like a calm Sunday drive … All-in-all, a thoroughly enjoying, leisurely read. I'd recommend it to any lover of historical romance"
