Pia Montero is an academic, and a princess of Spain. She is a severe introvert and struggles with the public events required of her family, and her. She is known to have an icy persona. In a moment of peace and gathering her thoughts, she meets an unknown man with whom she has an instant connection and attraction. From there her life changes.

Angelo Navarro is a self-made man. He is from the other side of the tracks, and he is about to seek his revenge on his father’s family. He enters the event to take back what is his and finds Pia deep in reflection. They come together and there is an event in nine months’ time. And marry they must.

Angelo pulls his ‘I am the man’ routine and is not initially bothered that Pia doesn’t argue or fight back. The more they are together, the more he finds that her ice image is an automatic response to cover her severely introverted nature and he tries to make those adjustments for her.

I was a little intrigued by this relationship especially as Pia is in the public eye because of her family and how she deals with being introverted. I think there are a few people out there who could relate. It was interesting to see how Pia deals with someone who is not like her in personality, although Angelo has been a bit of a loner throughout his life because of his past. He makes the initial mistake of thinking Pia is cold and he enjoys poking at her. Then he comes to realise that she has another side and her compassion is very evident. When she stands up to him, he thinks this is not what it should be, but then has to find her and get her to believe that he loves her, for herself and not the child she carries.

An enjoyable read.
