Catherine George was born in Wales, and early on developed a passion for reading which eventually fuelled her compulsion to write. Marriage to an engineer led to nine years in Brazil, but on his later travels the education of her son and daughter kept her in the UK. And, instead of constant reading to pass her lonely evenings, she began to write the first of her romantic novels. When not writing and reading she loves to cook, listen to opera and browse in antiques shops. Recent titles by this author

The story was good. True love always finds its way back to each other. The only problem I had with the story was the poor ending. The writer seemed to run out I'd creativity in ending the story. The last two chapters seem to be a struggle for the writer and I feel all stories should end with an epilogue.
  • Anararius
An OKAY book! Kind of a let down as to exactly why the hero & heroine parted on their wedding night. More information on rugby than was necessary IMO.
  • Alsanadar
This book started powerful enough but towards the middle it just got lame. Francesco keeps repeating his wife's name Alicia- I wanted to throw the book across the room but I have a kindle so I was forced to read on. He was just lame, and sounded pathetic and I felt sorry for ALICIA.

Alicia Cross thought she'd put that horrible moment behind her, but suddenly Count Francesco da Luca was standing in front of her and she couldn't hide any longer.

The years had been kind to Alicia. With her pale skin, adorable freckles and fiery red hair, she holds Francesco captive with her simple beauty. If only sweet Alicia can find it in her heart to forgive him for their misunderstanding, they might have a chance to be together again.

I enjoyed the contrasts between these natives of Wales and Italy and how two people who are so very different can still love each other so deeply. Indeed, love knows all and forgives all. I'm looking forward to reading more of Catherine George's work.

Alicia Cross fled on her wedding night and vows never to see her husband again, but while she's working at a rugby game, her husband, Italian Count Francesco da Luca, finally tracks her down. He's never forgotten the eighteen-year-old girl he swept off her feet and never stopped regretting losing her. With the ruse that none of the other heirs to his mother's fortune can receive their bequest unless she comes to Italy with him, Francesco persuades Alicia to visit him at his palace. There, he works his seductive magic...and explains what really happened that horrible night.

Author Catherine George has a pleasant writing style and keeps the story moving along as Alicia struggles between the attraction she still feels and her fear of being hurt again. THE ITALIAN COUNT'S DEFIANT BRIDE is highly readable and kept me interested. Definitely not a wall-banger. Still I had some problems that kept me from enjoying this story as much as I'd wanted. First, there is the issue of a mature man seducing an eighteen-year-old. For me, at least, this is gross. Second, the conflict revolves largely around a misunderstanding rather than any inherent characteristics of the protagonists. A simple conversation...ah, that's why you were dressed like that. Ah-ha, that's why you over-reacted, results in the two ready to pick up where they left off. Third, am I the only person who cares that Italy is a Republic and no longer has Counts? (I guess they have them, but they have no legal position. Anyone could call himself a Count if he wanted). Fourth, it's hard to think of these two being so much in love with each other, yet never bothering to make contact in the years they were apart (yes, Francesco visited Alicia's mother once, but he sure took no for an answer quickly, without bothering to track Alicia down to get it face-to-face).

THE ITALIAN COUNT'S DEFIANT BRIDE is enjoyable reading, but it's hard to care much about these characters...and that is a big part of why we read romance.

I can't recall ever reading a Catherine George Presents but she'll be an auto buy for me from now on as I so enjoyed The Italian Count's Defiant Bride. It's about second chances and will absolutely tug at your heart strings.

As a young teenager just fresh out of school with absolutely no experience, Alicia travels to Florence with her bestfriend Megan and literally bumps into Count Francesco da Luca a retired rugby player. Alicia is overwhelmed because she's been a fan of his for years. Francesco shows her the city and they quickly fall in love and marry. However, their wedding night is a disaster and she leaves and returns home and refuses his calls.

Now years later, Francesco returns to Wales and is determined to see Alicia and bring her back to Italy under pretenses that his mother has left her something and the rest of the heirs cannot get their inheritance until she signs the papers. On top of everything else, Alicia has a problem with a man she adores like a brother and he's made advances so Francesco and Alicia decide to tell everyone they have reconciled.

It's such a lovely and romantic love story, one you will definitely not want to miss.
  • Moralsa
It was pathetic the reason Alicia ran away from her husband on their wedding night. They threw away their love and marriage because of a stupid miscommunication and misunderstanding that it is unbelievable and unrealistic. With the title, power and money I can't believe the hero can't find the heroine all those years.

The way they fell in love and the way the hero courting the heroine again and the heroine falling in love again was romantic. That I have to give credit.
I absolutely love this book. I read it over and over--in between reading new ones. I enjoyed it because the story didn't just end after they confessed their love for one another. There was more and I appreciated that.
I was okay with not too much conflict---it gets annoying when that's all there is n these stories very little dialogue. And the man does things that are truly unforgivable but she just forgets, not so in this one. Lots of dialogue. Thank you Catherine George, I will continue to read her books!
