Marco Santini’s life is a rags-to-riches story and he had even been briefly married, until he discovered that his wife loved his money instead of him. He has managed to get to his current status in life alone and after this awful lesson, he figured he was not meant for love and his love life to this point has proven that fact. Today had been a nightmarish one for Marco. First, his six-month-old Ferrari, the love of his life, was stolen out of the garage, despite an endless array of high tech security gadgets. His personal assistant or PA left without giving notice – a recurring situation. Then he had been stuck with his money-grubbing date and soon-to-be ex-mistress, Jessalyn, who had whined because he had not won the diamond bracelet at the charity dinner they attended, even though he had bought an exorbitant amount of tickets at a thousand dollars a pop in the hopes of shutting her up. Finally, as he was looking forward to dropping his date off, his chauffeured Mercedes soaked a young woman standing on the street and when he tries to come to her rescue, she acts as if he is Jack the Ripper. But although logic tells him to drive away, honor will not let him.
Realizing that the stranger has a date with him, Emily finally relents. After dropping off his date, Marco takes Emily home, exchanging a mutually satisfying kiss with her at her door. The next day, she awakens jobless, with the rent due and humiliated over climbing all over her rescuer the previous night. But then she receives a call that Marco needs a piano player for the opening of his new project. When she presents herself to Jane in Human Resources, she soon ends up with the PA position instead. Although they agree to keep their relationship professional, neither one can forget the heated kiss they had exchanged nor can they keep from indulging in more stolen kisses. But on the way to a meeting in Paris, Emily realizes that her charming boss believes she came from poverty and he is enjoying introducing her to a lifestyle she’s never known before, or so he believes. Working together, they become inseparable and she knows she is falling in love with him, but what will happen when he discovers that she lied about her background through omission and even her last name is false?
A deliciously sexy tale, EMILY: SEX AND SENSIBILITY, the first book in USA Today bestselling author Sandra Marton’s WILDE SISTERS series, is a witty, sensual contemporary romance that will steal your heart. Marco and Emily were perfect for each other and the chemistry between them nearly scorched the pages. I could not help rooting for a happy ever after for them. I was eagerly awaiting the next story about the Wilde family and this one more than met my expectations. As an avid fan of Ms. Marton’s work, all I need is to see her name on the cover of a book to make it a must read for me. Readers will quickly get caught up in this tender romance filled with charismatic characters, family dynamics, humor, secrets, witty dialogue, sizzling sensuality, romance, Paris and true love. This is the kind of book I like to read more than once; a definite keeper! I look forward to reading the next delectable WILDE SISTERS novel; JAIMIE: FIRE AND ICE, due out in the fall.
