About the Author
Kate Hewitt discovered her first Mills & Boon romance on a trip to England when she was thirteen and she's continued to read them ever since.
She wrote her first story at the age of five, simply because her older brother had written one and she thought she could do it, too. That story was one sentence long-fortunately, they've become a bit more detailed as she's grown older.
Although she was raised in Pennsylvania, she spent summers and holidays at her family's cottage in rural Ontario, Canada; picking raspberries, making maple syrup and pretending to be a pioneer. Now her children are enjoying roaming the same wilderness!
She studied drama in college and shortly after graduation moved to New York City to pursue a career in theatre. This was derailed by something far better-meeting the man of her dreams who happened also to be her older brother's childhood friend.
Ten days after their wedding they moved to England, where Kate worked a variety of different jobs-drama teacher, editorial assistant, church youth worker, secretary and finally mother.
When her oldest daughter was one year old, she sold her first short story to a British magazine, The People's Friend. Since then she has written many stories and serials as well as novels. She loves writing stories that celebrate the healing and redemptive power of love and there's no better way of doing it than through the romance genre!
Besides writing, she enjoys reading, traveling and learning to knit-it's an ongoing process and she's made a lot of scarves.
After living in England for six years, she now resides in Connecticut with her husband, an Anglican minister, her three young children and the possibility of one day getting a dog.
Kate loves to hear from readers.

Sierra Rocci lived a life of her father only wanted her and her mother (his wife) when he needed them for show and to perform. Her mother loved her father but Sierra could not have that kind of love for her marriage. She had no idea what a real couple was like and she had a lonely childhood and being wanted basically for show. Then her father would call her princess and pretend as if she was his life and joy. Her father was the business mogul for hotels. He had chosen his prodigy Marco Ferranti to marry his daughter. The night before the wedding he was talking with Marco and told him that you know women have their senseless ideas and you need to keep them in line. Marco said I know how to keep Sierra in line. Sierra overheard and thought that Marco was just like her father. She could not go through with the wedding. Thankfully her mother helped her get away. Her mother had money tucked away and a friend that she could go far away and that she would help her. She handed Sierra the envelope and name and address and kissed her goodbye.
Now seven years later and both her parents had passed away and the will for her father needed her to be present. Everything but 2 things was given to Marco. Before she left again she went to say goodbye to her mother’s grave. But Marco found her there feeling she was trespassing on his property. He of course was not happy that she had left him standing and waiting at the church on what should have been their wedding day. He felt she had rejected him in the same way his own father had and his own mother had.
Can there ever be hope for these two? He needs her help to cut the ribbon for the opening of a brand new hotel and would she agree to come and do it. The board stated that there had to be a Rocci present at the opening.
Kate Hewitt is a wonderful author. I enjoyed her writing very much and the entire story was suspenseful and fast moving. It really was a true love story between Sierra and Marco. This is one book I know you will enjoy!
Sierra Rocci has led a childhood of emotional and physical abuse from a strong willed father who also controlled her mother but her mother was in love and no matter what Sierra said her mother would not listen so when her father found someone that he felt Sierra should marry at the age of nineteen Sierra agrees to get away from her father. But Sierra cannot go through with it and jilts Marco at the alter and takes off to start a new life in London never to return to Palermo until the reading of her father's will where she again meets the man she jilted and he is angry and wants answers Sierra is determined to be strong but can she resist this man.
