THE ITALIAN'S BOUGHT BRIDE
THE ITALIAN'S BOUGHT BRIDE (2) by Kate Hewitt: Six years after Allegra Avesti learned that Stefano Capozzi wasn't the idealized prince of her dreams, they meet again when he seeks her out. Allegra is now an art therapist, and Stefano hopes she can help his housekeeper's son recover from a traumatic incident. Their time together brings the past into the present. As they finally clear the air and learn hidden truths, will it lead to a new beginning? The love story gets short shrift in this lovers-reunited tale. It focuses primarily on the heroine and her self-examination of past behaviors, which isn't pretty. It's almost surprising the hero would even want her back.
