When London bride Emma Chauncey finds her fiance and one of her bridesmaids in a compromising position, she calls off the wedding. At her father's urging, Emma and her best friend take her honeymoon trip to a villa in Italy. It's here Emma meets Dario de Luca, a wealthy count and famous shoe designer. Dario's family is pressuring him to marry a girl they've chosen, but he wants to find his own love. Dario is staying at the villa "in disguise" in hopes of meeting a woman who will love him for him - not for his title, wealth or fame. The sparks fly at Emma and Dario's first meeting. Their passion and relationship blossom, but Dario's family, his keeping his true identity a secret, and her ex-fiance all cause problems. Emma must find the strength to forgive Dario and embrace the love they share. Jillian Chantal's Solo Honeymoon is a superb read. Her dialogue and settings are incredibly well-done. Her secondary characters are delightfully written. Emma and Dario are easy to love. I love Emma's strength and conviction, and Dario has such a sexy confidence. Together, they make this novel a page turner. Solo Honeymoon is a beautiful, well-written love story and I highly recommend it. Can't wait to see what Ms. Chantal gives us next!
