Title: A Secret Disgrace

Pub Date: June 05, 2012
Author: Penny Jordan
I’ve been a fan of Penny Jordan’s work for quite some time now, and I usually adore her masterpiece. But this one in particular is quite a disappointment, I have to say. Frankly speaking, the pace is way too slow and the plot is too predictable. The only saving grace for this novel is the steamy scenes between the hero and the heroine. I was expecting more from Ms. Jordan, but it seems that this particular work os hers simply does not click with me.
I will only recommend this to those who prefers a leisurely pace and for those who are looking for books that they could pass a rainy day with.
I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Harlequin Publisher via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book and I was not compensated in any ways for this.
A shocking Sicilian secret… Â Louise Anderson’s heart pounds as she approaches the imposing castello. Only the Duke of Falconari can grant her grandparents’ dying wish-but this is the same man who said arrivederci without a backward glance after their night of unadulterated passion….Â Caesar can’t believe the woman who almost ruined his precious reputation still fiercely fires his blood. Discovering that their union created more than just salacious memories, he agrees to grant Louise’s request…in exchange for a demand of his own.Â That she wears his band of gold!
Cleffairy: This is Penny Jordanâ€™s last book.Â She died because of breast cancer on 31 December 2011.I really wished I could say something nice about this book, but I know that the late Ms. Jordan would prefer honest opinions on her works. She always prefers honest opinion. RIP, Penny. You will be missed.
