Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Valentino’s Love-Child is explosive, passionate, intense and just plain wonderful and it’s no surprise because the author of this fabulous book is Lucy Monroe.

Tino as he’s affectionately called by his family and lover Faith is one sexy Sicilian, a successful business man, and is one extremely stubborn Italian. From the very beginning one can tell that Tino’s appetite for Faith is one that at times he doesn't understand and for the time being he’s happy being in the relationship. Why one might ask? Because everything is going his way….no strings, no promises and she is always available and never asks for more. He absolutely adores her but one will learn Tino really doesn't know much about her plus the fact that he hasn't admitted to her that when his wife died he made a grave side promise.

Faith is a talented artist and teacher and a very brave woman. She has secrets about her past. She also has another secret which she’s kept from Tino. Before she met him, Faith met his mother and she’s become a dear friend. Due to the friendship, it was suggested Faith teach art at his son’s school. She’s kept her relationship with his mother and son to herself. As Faith’s story unfolds one will learn she’s just not talented, she’s also very brave.

Faith’s struggle in the end when it’s revealed she’s carrying his child and her absolute and unconditional love for the baby she’s carrying plus her relationship turmoil will have you crying. However, Faith is not the only one who struggles, Tino does as well because he can't let go of past memories.

Lucy Monroe couldn't have chosen her heroine’s name any better because Faith, most definitely has faith as well as hope and in the end for this couple their love shines through in this magnificent romance one you definitely won't want to miss.
