Natasha Knight knocked it out of the park with this tale of greed, revenge, betrayal, lust and ultimately love.
Looking for revenge on the person he feels wronged his family, Raphael concocts a plan of revenge and restitution . . . his prize, an arranged marriage to the lovely and innocent Sofia and her inheritance.
Not knowing what to expect, Sofia is pulled from a lonely life at boarding school to Italy, where she is forced to wed Raphael to keep her sister safe and protected. While Sofia is drawn to Raphael, she also realizes he is an extremely complex man, not only fighting issues of betrayal in his present but also demons from his past.
Sofia and Raphael are left to unravel their feelings for one another as well as the twisted plots started well before their time over land, money and power. Sofia is often left not knowing who can be trusted. Raphael is tortured by his need for revenge, where Sofia was supposed to be collateral damage, but know becomes his one true weakness.
Natasha Knight has done an amazing job of creating extremely complex characters. Both Raphael and Sofia come from harsh realities. While Sofia can see the light and the best in people, Raphael struggles to break the cycle of darkness he has always lived with. The ancillary characters in this book, especially Damon and Lina are extremely well written as well.
The plot is fast paced, twisted and complex. Just when you think you have everything figured out, a new monkey wrench appears convoluting things even further. Will love or revenge prevail? Will the past be dark enough to keep Sofia and Raphael from the future they deserve? Who can truly be trusted?
Kudos to Natasha Knight for keeping me on the edge of my seat through this entire book (which, I have to admit, I read in one sitting!) 5 stars!

About the Book:
I knew little of Raphael Amado’s history with my family, but when he turned up on our doorstep demanding restitution, my grandfather quickly conceded. That restitution? Me.
Six months later, on my eighteenth birthday, Raphael came for me. He stole me from my home, taking me to his Tuscan estate, where from the crumbling chapel to the burnt-down vineyard, to the cellar that haunted him, the past stalked him like a shadow. It waited for him, hid behind corners for him and trapped him at every turn.
As much as Raphael’s cruelty terrified me, his darkness seduced me. But in the end, it was his tenderness that devastated me.
Sofia came to me like an offering. Like a virgin to be sacrificed at the altar. But truth was, her grandfather betrayed her. I guess we had that in common. He’d screwed me too.
I knew hate. I’d vowed vengeance. This was never supposed to be about anything else. But in the end, her innocence broke me. The very thing I would destroy, destroyed me.
