Review:

The fabulous Christina Hollis seduces her readers with an enthralling new romance set under the beautiful Tuscan sky: The Count of Castelfino!

Meg Impsey cannot get the gorgeous man she met at the Chelsea Flower Show out of her mind - not that her fantasies will ever come to fruition, of course! Meg has spent most of her life indulging in her passion for horticulture and with an ailing father to look after, Meg had chosen duty over desire and dedicated herself to her family.

Meg's love for her family had seen her turn her back on a job working in the Royal Family's gardens. Yet, when a job becomes available at the Tuscan palazzo of The Count of Castelfino, Meg decides to stop existing and to start living, and with her father now fully recovered, Meg heads off to the sunny climes of Italy - only to be told as soon she sets foot on Italian soil that the Count of Castelfino has died!

Meg is disraught when her dreams are shattered anew. But there are further shocks in store for her when she meets the Count of Castelfino's heir - Gianni, the man she met at the Chelsea Flower Show whom she hasn't been able to stop thinking about!

Both Gianni and Meg are stunned when they clap eyes on one another and passions soon begin to soar on the grounds of the beautiful palazzo. Now, that he's inherited his father's title, Gianni realizes that he must marry and produce an heir - and virginal Meg is the perfect candidate for such a position!

Christina Hollis has written another winner with The Count of Castelfino! Featuring a sexy hero, a feisty heroine and lots of passion, drama and emotion, The Count of Castelfino is romantic escapism at its finest!
