Looking for an adrenaline rush? Jane Porter's A Dark Sicilian Secret is an exciting, fast-paced romance that will keep a reader on the edge of his or her seat while tugging at the heart. Jill takes her baby and runs from the father, Vitt. Why would she do such a thing? A rumor led her to do some research on her own, and it seems her beloved Sicilian hunk is not the good guy who captured her heart in the first place. In a dramatic beginning, Vitt finds Jill after eleven months of searching, at the edge of a cliff, literally. She's terrified. He informs her that he got legal custody of their son, and if she wants to raise him, she'll have to come along with them, to live in Sicily. She goes, despairing, but for the sake of her son. Strong emotions are evoked, from page one, and it never lets up. At first, Vitt is strong-handed, practically forcing Jill into marriage. They have a quicky ceremony on flight while going to his family's home. During the beginning scenes, Vitt is a bully; yet, something about him is quite compelling. When the reader gets a look into his point of view, Vitt seems less threatening. Do his actions just reflect his broken heart? After all, the woman he wanted to spend his life with dashed away without warning, while carrying his precious child. It is possible to sympathize with him, even if he is a bit over the top at first. His speech is tough, but his thoughts are loving and gentle, creating an interesting character. Jillian is courageous. She's scared to death yet continually does what she thinks is right for her son, always putting him first. Every choice she makes carries such risk, yet she does these things anyway. She has a fascinating family history, and this adds to the storyline. When in Sicily, Jill and Vitt drive around. The reader is treated to beautiful scenery. The theme of family is important in this book. The love is steamy. My only complaint is that there was a lot of narrative. The novel could have started earlier, and some of Jill's reflections could have been shown, not told. The book would make a great longer novel. This is a page-turner, enjoyable, and recommended for a fast read. Originally posted at the Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

An Exciting and Unique Presents. I love Harlequin Presents, and nobody does it better than Jane Porter. In A Dark Sicilian Secret, she has outdone herself! Most romance heroines are nice enough, maybe interesting enough, but this is the first time in a long time that I've read a heroine like Jillian. She actually has a dark and scary secret past that could ruin everything for her. I love how Vittorio takes charge of the situation and refuses to be the villain that Jill has made him out to be, I love their chemistry, and I love the family that they become. All in all, one of the absolute best Presents I've ever read, and definitely one of my top favorites of Jane's. It's a must-read!

I love Jane Porter's books and this was another one that kept me up, reading it all in one sitting. I adored Vitt. I fell for him from the minute he made an appearance in the story. I only wish the book had been longer! Porter has combined all the drama and passion readers have come to expect from a Harlequin Presents and delivered it in a well-crafted, unforgettable sexy read! If you love hot, intensely passionate and heart-wrenching stories, don't miss this one!
