Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you find a love that transcends family, wealth, and honor?

In the early Renaissance, a captain born in a noble family must choose. Will he marry the child bride his father has chosen or the woman who has captured his heart?

The doctor's assistant is brave, learned, and handles a weapon like a man. Unfortunately, her beauty is beyond compare, and without a dowry, she attracts the attention of a powerful man who would have her as his mistress.

Be prepared for heated passion, bloody sword play, and stay-up-all-night suspense.

Please note: The book was formerly titled The Angel of Soriano.

Extremely entertaining.

Soriano must be a beautiful place, but these were ugly, tragic times. Finding love near impossible for Bernardo and Aurelia. Their story, beautifully written here, is extremely entertaining! Action packed. Sexually frank. Downright scary brave. Heart pounding events. Highly recommend.
I listened to Audible version. Didn't care for this narrator. Her male and old lady voices sounded alike and were abrasive and irritating. They distracted from this incredible story.

Unexpectedly delightful

I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but found myself delighted with our clever heroine. I wasn't so thrilled with the narrator. Sounded a bit too mouse-like in many places.

Secret of Soriano

I was unable to get into this story. It was hard for me to sit and listen. It did not hold my interest.

Good story

The plot of this book is full of suspenseful moments. The herione Aurelia has no trust in men. She travels to Italy and hooks up with a hunky Spaniard Bernardo. Overall, this book and it’s characters engaged me from beginning to end. Best of all, a sweet and promising HEA for Aurelia and Bernardo.

Tragic Love Story

Wow, this woman has been threw hell and back to find and keep her love.
I was drawn in right away and enjoyed the story.
Once or twice it seemed to skip ahead and it took me a minute to understand that other wise I would have given it 5*.
Standalone with no cliffhangers

Engrossing and consuming!

I sat down to listen to just a few chapters and before I knew it hours had passed and chores remained unfinished because I had been enthralled and mesmerized by this beautiful romance! Looking for more of Ms. Allen's books now!
