"An Old Fashion Romance"

Mariella Rizzoli must have the new baron sign over the keep or be left without a home. She just hopes the new boron isn't as heartless as his father had been. She doesn't go to see him with much of a plan, but when she is almost run down and saved by the baron himself, she blurts out that she's his maid.

Baron Romano DiSanto finds Mariella breathtaking. He's a little curious how this innocent became his personal maid. Something doesn't seem right, but he's determined to find out what it is. As Mariella begins to know the baron, she finds herself falling in love with him, but when he finds out the truth behind her being there, will he be able to forgive her?

There is also a threat that hovers in the shadows, waiting to strike and destroy Romano and Mariella's happiness.

The story drew me in from the start. Jannine Corti Petska created a wonderful tale of dark secrets, a villain and an old fashion romance. Well done!
