Today, I'm talking about a book I've just read and would recommend. If you enjoy warm-hearted and touching and also easy to read, then look no further. Elsa Winckler has written a novel set in South Africa which will take you on a wonderful romance ride.
Blurb of Touched to the Heart:
Discover beautiful South Africa in this sweet, heart-warming Cinderella story about a blogger, a billionaire, and one chance meeting.
When it comes to men, if physiotherapist Caitlin Sutherland didn't have bad luck, she would have no luck at all. To help cope, Caitlin starts blogging in her spare time, about the types of men she meets and the bad dates she goes on.
While on duty during the annual Wines to Whales bicycle race, a gorgeous, sweaty cyclist walks in and sets her hormones dancing. But he is Don Cavallo; one of the four Cavallo brothers — hotel tycoons, famous as much for their business skills as for the number of beauties regularly seen on their arms.
Don Cavallo has his own issues with the other sex. He has yet to find one who is interested in him and not in his money or hotels. But when this sexy physio puts her hands on his back she not only touches his body, but also his heart.
They've both been burned before, but neither of them can stop themselves from playing with fire.
I enjoyed this story very much and couldn't put it down. I like a story that's heart-warming, easy to read, not bogged down with unnecessary fluff, and filled with conflict.
Caitlin is a physiotherapist and is very embarrassed by her immediate and intense attraction to cyclist and hotel chain owner, Don, when he comes in for a massage. Her touch on his back stirs longings in him he's unable to quench. And Caitlin is drawn to him too against her better judgement. She's sworn off men and even writes a blog about the bad types she's dated. Hurt from childhood blinds her in many ways.
I loved the intense physical and emotional attraction between the hero and heroine. The romance was touching and sweet yet peppered with a lot of sexiness. The love scenes were hot!
I also enjoyed the large family interplay in the novel which makes you invested in the Sutherland and Cavallo families.
I would recommend this lovely romance that ticks all the right boxes.
I certainly hope the author intends to write the stories of the other Sutherland sisters and their connection to the Cavallo brothers, especially Hannah.
