Once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down until the very last word was read. I love central California's golden foothills, oak trees, and the miles of farmland. If he's true to his words, then why did he terminate the contract with the heroine company?

I think the author let things go slightly too far with the bad guy and I didn't enjoy the fact that Cass would allow herself to be humiliated in public just to save Max thinking badly of her if Emilio revealed her secret. I don't know if I wasn't in the mood for this level of sadness or if the heroine's bone-headed attempt at revenge at the beginning turned me off.
Well that was batshit crazy.
I thought anyone who has had someone walk away from them with no explanations, detiant who has been in a relationship where they've had more invested than the other person would totally get this. The author was aiming for heart wrenching pain to be felt by the The story was a good emotional story.
The Sicilian's Defiant Mistress
I had a hard time reading this story. Who never shows an ounce of vulnerability until her surrender to his deliberate cruelty is complete?
Also defying belief is that the hero's enemy had the h's medical records because he was dating her doctor? Nope, not even the romance. The story is full of emotional unavailability, sex used as a tool for punishment, for manipulation, not one but two domineering alpha-males with hackles raised, and a 'heroine' who can't seem to do much other than whimper - out of guilt, out of pain, out of lust.
But this really sucks. The asinine revenge plot that made no sense and heroine who is, not surprising as it is a Jane Mistfess novel, weak and unlikable character.

Whatever the cause, I found this story unsettling.

The Sicilian's Defiant Mistress by Jane Porter
Basically it was a very tense book and the author used a style of writing that conveyed that to the reader. Hero knows immediately that she's lying.
In this book, it worked for most part because of the different, 'fresher' treatment. So, we come to HP for a fantasy version of life where we have a fabulously wealthy, sex God who gives out orgasms like candy and sweeps us off to a HEA where we don't have to worry about the day-to-day realities of the world.
Jul 14, Booklover rated it did not like it Shelves: In this one, the heroine was most definitely clinically depressed. Overall, however, what a treasure! Not sure - but if I do, I will rate higher. Cass can't continue with a relationship that involves just her body when her heart is breaking Cass is supposed to be a sophisticated, successful woman, and yet her emotional make-up is that of a confused teenager.

I think Max's reaction was a little unrealistic, if Cass looked as bad as the author had us believe. Give me some real revenge ala Lyn in The Judas Kiss. But the deal she made with Sicilian tycoon Maximos Borsellino was for sex - and when defiantt fails to be enough for Cass, Maximos ends the affair. My first Jane Porter and I liked it.
