On high from the first page till the last Such a beautiful story and a huge twist I wasn t expecting Beautifully written Glory Little is the gardener s daughter She grows up in awe of the handsome Rafaello heir to the estate She has an unfortunate drunken father and a younger brother who has got into trouble To make matters worse we have the cliche of her dead mother being a gypsy and this causing further problems re social acceptance Anyway Glory is forced to leave school at 16 and now works in a factory It is fair to say that she is not the sharpest tool in the box When she is 18 she has a 6 week relationship with Rafaello and they fall in love all be it she doesn t put outThey are separated by Rafaello s father and Glory breaks it off with Rafaello in a manner which leads him to think she doesn t care Several years later when her brother is in trouble Glory goes begging to Rafaello He tells her he will only drop the charges if she becomes his mistress She storms out An hour later she is back More storming around It all became uite confusing I cant begin to describe how stupid Glory really is They head off to Corfu More stupidness and bickering She loses her virginity More bickering They fail to use contraception More bickering And so it goes on When she compulsorily falls pregnant she is too stupid to tell him and in fact decides that he must be about to dump her so she must leave first only to end up waiting tables at a nearby restaurant with not enough money to get home because of her stupidity He eventually finds her to tell her her father is sick He discovers she is pregnant They must marry It turns out that Rafaello is the half brother of her half brother and it s all a little too close to home More Bickerfest Final hea I really did not like this and skim read to the end The heroine missed no opportunity to misunderstand events not ask what the hero actually meant I struggled to see what Rafaello saw in her other than her looks as she was so darned thick. Ears later in desperate circumstances Glory begs Rafaello for his help As arrogant as he is handsome Rafaello agrees to help Glory on one condition that she become his mistre.
