I simply adored this one from number one Mills and Boon author Melanie Milburne.

Passionate yet a fun read combined with a emotional punch and a happy ending that will take your breath away.

The character of Bella was really well written, she comes off as a spoilt heiress and in some ways she lives up to that reputation but at the same time you I could tell she is hiding something and let me tell you when I got behind her façade and found the real Bella I wad delighted.

Edoardo was the perfect character, strong, domineering, and simply put sex on legs. I loved how he and Bella dance around each other each with their own hidden motives and at the same time each fighting the battle to resist each other. Seriously the heat between the two was so hot I thought the pages were going to spontaneously combust any moment.

The secondary characters fit into the story line perfectly.The backdrop setting was simply put the perfect mix to add to the mystery and secrets of the untold truths of a family torn.

I also particularly loved the somewhat playful dialogue as Bella and Edoardo take turns in having a go at each other,I laughed so hard at some lines that I practically fell out of my chair,really loved that Melanie!

The book is a really romantic and delightful read. Think secrets, mystery, forbidden passion combined with life happens situations and sure I'll take that moments. Melanie Milburne as proven yet again that she not only captivates her readers hearts using her exquisite characters but she lets them climbs inside our souls where they live forever.

Excellent work Melanie,I recommend this one to all lovers of reading and romance with a twist!

5/5 star review

UNCOVERING THE SILVERI SECRET by USA Today Bestselling Author Melanie Milburne is a January 2013 release from Harlequin Presents.
Bella Haverton is upset that her father left her childhood home to his protégé Edoardo Silveri. Not only her home, but her guardianship till she was twenty five and her right to choose whom she wants to marry.
She comes all prepared to fight but the desire she had always felt for Edoardo is just simmering beneath the surface. Would she let her Edoardo take advantage of the fact and forestall her upcoming engagement to another man? After all he had turned out to be too sexy with dangerous sex appeal.
Edoardo had kept his heart untouched by not committing to a relationship or by not opening up about his childhood to anyone. Would he open up to Bella? Could he risk his heart once again?
UNCOVERING THE SILVERI SECRET is as much a story about recovering from past grief and guilt as it is about the unquenchable desire between Bella and Edoardo. It truly is a romance packed with sizzle and sexual tension adding to the page turning quality of the book.
Melanie Milburne’s master story-telling makes the characters come alive on the pages and the reader is personally involved in their happiness and craves the resolution as deeply as they do. Highly recommended for all lovers of sizzling sensuality and romance.

I was so lucky to read this beautiful story while I was on holiday in Australia, I had my feet up with a gorgeous view of the Coomera River and Mt Tamborine.  Interestingly the sun was shining, it was a beautiful day and when I looked up again the dark clouds had suddenly appeared over the top of the Mountain. Rain, thunder and lightening were heading my way, and fast! Why do I mention this? Because it all happened in perfect timing with discovering the Silveri Secrets... you'll understand when you read it. I was thrilled with the story and I purposefully chose it as one of my holiday stories because I adore Melanie Melburne. I wasnt disappointed.

Bella is portrayed to everyone as a spoilt bratty girl but that's so far from the opposite of her true character that it's delightlful when Edoardo starts to discover the real Bella and questions himself.  Edoardo is a darker character, he is the thunder to Bella's sunshine.  The onion metaphor is perfect to describe the characters in Uncovering the Silveri Secret... as each layer is peeled away we find what is buried beneath and it's worth the wait!

I rode out the storm I was watching and the storm in the book, and was left completely satisfied. The storm for real was over as quickly as it began and the storm brewing between Bella and Edoardo I rode to the crescendo... does it end in rainbows?  Well we all know it does but it's the path that we follow to reach the rainbows that's the real treat.

In my opinion Melanie Milburne is a star :)
