Book Summary

Valeria Allegro was hoping to embark on a life of freedom when she left Italy to travel to Australia for an arranged marriage with Roberto Morandi. The last thing she expected to encounter was harassment by Roberto's friend and neighbour, Luca Abandonato. 

Valeria begins to wonder if marrying a virtual stranger at eighteen was a wise decision, especially when her  new husband and his family demonstrate greater loyalty to Luca.

Alone in a foreign country and struggling to feel settled and secure, it appears that Valeria must face a dangerous enemy alone unless love can be her salvation.
