Hannah flees to Greece after finding out her fiancé is having an affair. On New Year’s Eve she shares a night of passion with Greek Billionaire Leonidas (Leo) Stathakis. Leo is still grieving the deaths of his wife and toddler son when he allows desire to overrule his head. Guilt soon surfaces and he regrets his decision, leaving before the morning-after-the-night-before can occur. Yet, he can’t forget her or the way she made him feel.

Hannah tries to move on with her life but soon discovers she is pregnant. She is surprised by Leo’s reaction to the news. He insists they marry, and she soon finds herself living among a world of overwhelming security. Despite this, the physical attraction they shared is still there with an emotional connection beginning to develop also. Could they have a real marriage?

Hannah falls in love but chafes at the restrictions on her life because of the security detail. She also struggles knowing that Leo doesn’t share her feelings. After an argument she leaves the safety of the villa to go home and move on alone.

Leo is bombarded by an assortment of emotions that leave him confused and frustrated. His guilt for failing his wife and son still plagues him while his feelings for Hannah bloomed also. Did he deserve a second chance at love? A second chance at a happy family? He doesn’t think so and buries himself in his work.

When Leo is informed that Hannah has gone into premature labour, he rushes to be by her side, but she refuses him. He waits outside hoping there is still time for him to have a happy family with Hannah.

This is another of Connelly’s well written Modern stories with a gorgeous but tortured Greek Billionaire hero and a heroine who over the course of the story not only acquires self-confidence but also challenges the hero. Leo’s loss of his family is well written, and you will want him to realise Hannah and the baby can heal his heart. Find a quiet space where you can curl up undisturbed for a couple of hours and enjoy this charming read where love heals. The news gets better too because Leo’s brother, Thanos, has his own story (‘Bride Behind the Billion-Dollar Veil’) out in November so you can check in on Hannah and Leo. Enjoy.
