    One thought on “The Proud Wife”

    1. I like Kate Walker's take on a couple who should have had the HEA only life, circumstances, and shadows from the past challenged their marriage. There is some honesty here and happily Walker doesn't tread past the line with too much reality. What she accomplishes is a solemn portrait of a marriage where two people lost their way and the road back to each other. Above all she makes us believe that all be be well with these two. Special kudos to Walker. I really liked how she kept the story focuse [...]

    2. 4 Stars ~ What had started as a minor fender bender on a rainy London afternoon, swiftly became an affair so passionate that scattered both Pietro's and Marina's brains. Neither could think clearly in the other's presence, and when that passion resulted in a pregnancy, Pietro insisted that they marry. Pietro belongs to an aristocratic family in Sicily, holding the title of Principe, and this baby would be his heir. Marina had fallen in love with Pietro, so marriage and family became all she drea [...]

    4. I have loved tackling the TBR. I can look at my stack of category romances and pick what tickles my fancy. I remember Kate mentioning something about being unsure of this cover (the UK version) and how it fit the story, but I found the cover really intriguing! I wanted to know more about who this woman was. The US cover is more "colour correct" - the heroine has red hair - but there's something about this one that I love.But inside the pages, and while I enjoyed being in Marina's head, it was th [...]

    5. Romance is a popular fiction genre and one I enjoy occasionally. I liked this one a lot. A satisfying read for anyone who enjoys emotional drama. Only two characters and a few bit players. A couple get together to discuss their divorce and realize that they're still in love. Through the dialogues we learn the backstory, how they met, how they parted and how they find their way back to each other again. If there is a message and I do believe that all good fiction carries a message, it is that whe [...]

    6. A LACK OF COMMUNICATIONTwo years ago Marina had left her husband Pietro and returned home. Now he is demanding she return to Scilly to discuss terms for a divorce. This couple had a whirlwind romance and then married. Then disaster struck and Marina left.Many mistakes were made by this couple most of all a lack of communication, then what man in his right mind moves himself and his new bride in to live with his mother, he then spent too much time at work.This was an okay read from this author, I [...]

    7. There isn't much of a plot in this book. And the story mostly revolves around the events of one single day. The day when the "wife" finally meets her husband after almost two years of separation, to finalize their divorce. After that it pretty much becomes clichéd, what with the ever-present can't-keep-my-hands-off-of-you sexual attraction and the BIG misunderstanding/miscommunication. One thing good about this book is that after their tempestuous reunion(which, to be honest, extends well beyon [...]

    8. A second chance romancet much action but lots of angst, talking and flashbacks to when they first met, got pregnant and married, then miscarriage and breakdown of the relationship. I only just realised the book did not have that many scenes: opening scene saw Pietro in his office signing letter asking Marina to come to Palermo, Sicicilly to discuss terms of the divorce after ALMOST two years of separation. Next Marina in her kitchen staring at the letter in shock before texting Pietro and he bei [...]

    9. My autographed copy of The Proud Wife came down off the shelf yesterday when Kate's Facebook page shared yesterday that the Kindle version was currently free at the UK website. I recalled loving it but couldn't remember why until I opened the first page and started reading not putting it down until the very last page.Pietro, a Sicilian billionaire Prince of ages old ancestry, summons his ex wife Marina back to Sicily to discuss the terms of their divorce. Left with no option but an immediate ret [...]

    10. This is the story of Marina and Pietro, they have been separated for two years. Now Pietro feels its time to divorce and for them both to move on with their lives. He orders her to Sicily in order to lay out the terms of the divorce, thinking she would be more than happy with the settlement he has planned. Marina, however, goes to Sicily with the determination to finally put Pietro behind her and accept nothing from him. When they meet again it is clear they are both still very much attracted to [...]

    11. The fire burning beneath the ashes. When Pietro officially ‘summons’ Marina back to Sicily with the excuse of discussing the terms of their divorce, she attends, only to have the satisfaction to tell him she wants nothing from him, but to send their short marriage into oblivion. None of them imagine the attraction that brought them together is still there. And the passion is burning hotter than ever. Unexpectedly, they are facing each other and their painful past. A past where everything hap [...]

    12. "The Proud Wife" wants nothing from the husband from whom she has been separated for two years. She keeps telling herself this over and over, right up until the moment she is once again face to face with the man she married. In author Kate Walker's touching, tempestuous romance, Englishwoman Marina Emerson was swept off her feet by the captivating charm of Prince Pietro D'inzeo of Sicily. Their whirlwind of passion resulted in an unplanned pregnancy and a quick marriage. Tragically, the baby was [...]

    13. She arrives at attorney's office in the rain wearing rain coat. he sees her from the window. passion resulted in a pregnancy, so they had married. Pietro belongs to an aristocratic family in Sicily. She miscarried and leaves and he does not go after her so for two years there was silence between them. She receives a summons to return to Sicily to discuss the terms of their divorce.

    14. I am very very confused about this book. I don't understand what happened? The reason she left or what really happened at the cabin. I wish someone could tell me? Was he faithful while they were married or not? Was he when they were separated? Did she catch him doing something? And then the cottage. Wtf happened??? They were in bed and she is saying I forgive you and can we start again and he says no. What was to forgive. I still gave it four stars almost five because it was haunting and their l [...]

    15. I love Kate Walker's books but The Proud Wife was just so boring!I felt like there was no plot, too much descriptions and too little dialog between the hero and heroine.Also, I felt like there was some missing information about the relationship between Marina and Pierto like how they met and how long did they know one another before they got married.The Proud Wife is definitely not Kate Walker best book in my opinion. I hope I'll enjoy her next book more.

    16. I don't know how to describe itIn the beginning you're waiting for something to happen between Pietro and Marina. There's sexual tension, of course. It's very exciting to read what happens between these two. Will they find love again or will they actually get divorced? Read for yourself! It's worth the time

    17. A passionate hot read about rediscovering your first & only true love. A modern day "Cinderella" story with a Prince & commoner who find love, get married, & lose each other with the death of their baby. They meet again to finalize their divorce only to feel the passion consume them. This time they actually talk to each other to discover what went wrong so that they can find love again.

    18. High octane characters, this separated couple work out their difficulties in 24 hours. Kate Walker is an excellent writer. This one was a little too intense for me.

    19. Overall nice and angsty which I love. A little overwritten at times and I had to skim and there was a plot point toward the end that made me go huh!? but overall a very good HP.

    20. it was close to a 5 star.ry very close but i don't know i find something lacking. maybe too much happening on only one day.s the book took place on one day only. fabulous read anyway!:-)
