Alessandra is a historic romance about a young woman who weds through an arranged betrothal and marriage. Alessandra and Edward both have a shyness about them, due to both of them being without any great handsomeness. Due to their timid natures there is a period of time before their wedding when they do not connect at all. But both being determined to make their families happy, they push through the discomfort and thereafter develops a deep love.
Both virgins when they wed, and unknowing of such pleasures, they embark on their marital relations with an attitude of exploration and openness that leads to a level of passion that neither previously knew could exist.
As Alessandra revels in her marriage to Edward, and the feelings that develop, she starts to exude a level of confidence that captures the attention of a man from her past. He becomes more than interested in her due to this. His re-interest in her starts to verge on being obsessed. In fact one could say that it almost drives him to despair in his desperation to have her.
~~ As an author I loved writing Alessandra. She is a young woman that one could not help but love, and the relationship that develops with Edward is they kind that one could only want to see succeed. She isn’t a beautiful goddess of a woman. He isn’t a god-like specimen of a man. And yet they find something that even the most beautiful people in the world may never find. ~~
“Alessandra is also about the journey of a shy timid girl who grows into her new role of a strong loving wife and mother. Showing that it’s not what’s on the outside but the inside that matters, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the transformation of Alessandra throughout the story and her journey was a real highlight of this story.”
“This book hooked me in right away … The love story between Alessandra and Edward was touching. The fact that he wasn’t like most leading men in a story, made him even more real. The fact that she loved him in spite of it, made me fall in love with her … I highly recommend this book. It will take you on a journey that will be filled with so much fun.”
“What a delightful tale of love and family … this whole book felt like a calm Sunday drive … All-in-all, a thoroughly enjoying, leisurely read. I’d recommend it to any lover of historical romance”
