But when Jess's flaky relatives steal from Halston Hall, Cesario's country retreat, he has all the ammunition he needs! For now he'll enjoy her. Jess's Promise book. Read 45 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Cesario di Silvestri isn't just fast with women, he's supersonic. Af.
He filled a tumbler with ice cold water and drank it down thirstily. As he had admitted to Stefano, by this age he would have liked to have had a child, only not with the kind of woman who cared more about money than anything else. For such a woman would only raise her child with the same shallow self-seeking values.
Do what you want, not as you think you should. But there was nothing frivolous about that call from Rigo Castello, his security chief.
Rigo was phoning to tell him that he'd just been robbed: a painting, a recent acquisition worth a cool half-million pounds, had been stolen from Halston Hall, his English country home, and apparently the theft had been an inside job.
Cold outrage swept Cesario at that concluding fact. He didn't get mad, he got even.
He paid his employees handsomely and treated them well and in return he expected loyalty. When the guilty party was finally identified, Cesario would ensure that the full weight of the law was brought to bear on him… But, within a few minutes, his outrage and annoyance subsided to a bearable level and a grim smile began to tug at his handsome mouth as he contemplated his now inevitable visit to his beautiful Elizabethan home in England.
There he would undoubtedly run into his very beautiful Madonna of the stable yard again, as his horses required her regular attention. And unlike the many women he had known and deemed to be almost interchangeable, his English Madonna did rejoice in one unique quality: she was the only woman who had ever said no to Cesario di Silvestri…and utterly infuriated and frustrated him. One dinner date and he'd been history, rejected out of hand by a woman for the first time in his life and he still had no idea why.
For Cesario, who was by nature fiercely competitive, she would always be a mystery and a challenge. A small, slightly built brunette with her long dark curly hair caught up in a practical ponytail, Jess kept up a constant stream of soothing chatter while she wielded the shears over the cowering dog's matted coat.
The job had to be done. As the sheepdog's painfully emaciated body was revealed Jess's soft full mouth hardened; the suffering of animals always upset her and she had trained as a veterinary surgeon in an effort to do what she could to help in the way of welfare. Her volunteer helper at weekends, a pretty blonde schoolgirl, helped to keep the dog steady.
Jess sent the teenager a wry look.
He's an old dog. He'll be fine once I've seen to his sores and fed him up a bit.

The little tribe of dogs she had personally rescued in recent years were a motley group, each of which was either older, maimed or suffering from behavioural problems. Few people were willing to take a chance on such dogs. When Jess had embarked on her first job in the village of Charlbury St Helens, she had lived above the vet's surgery where she worked.
But she'd had to find other accommodation when the practice's senior partner had decided to expand the business and turned the small flat into an office suite instead. Jess had been lucky enough to find a run-down cottage with a collection of old sheds to rent just outside the village. Although her home was not much to look at and offered only basic comforts, it came with two fields and the landlord had agreed to her opening a small animal sanctuary there.
Even though she earned a good salary she was always broke, because every penny she could spare went towards animal feed and medical supplies. Even so, in doing what she loved, she was happier than she had ever been in her life. But then she would be the first to admit that she had long preferred animals to people.
(From the Secretly Pregnant, Conveniently Wed trilogy).
Shy, socially awkward and uneasy with men after a traumatic experience at university that had left her with both physical and mental scars, Jess struggled to fit in with human beings but was totally at home with four-legged beasts. The sound of a car pulling up outside sent Kylie to the door of the shed.
Recently, in fact, she had seen less than usual of her father and, when she had, he had seemed abnormally preoccupied with work.
As a rule, though, he was a regular visitor, who often helped out by repairing the animal housing and the fences. A quiet man in his fifties, he was a good husband and an even better dad, for, while other family members had believed that Jess had been aiming too high in dreaming of becoming a veterinary surgeon, Robert had encouraged his daughter's dream every step of the way.
His love and support meant all the more to Jess when she reflected that while Robert was the only father she had ever known he had had nothing whatsoever to do with her conception.
That, however, was a secret known to few outside the family circle. You'll be at church later and you're often on duty in the evening at weekends,' he said gruffly, and something odd in his voice made her lift her head, her unusually light grey eyes questioning. She frowned because the older man looked pale and strained and every year of his age and more. She had not seen him look that frightened since her mother's diagnosis of cancer the previous year. Goodness, had her mother's cancer returned?
That was her first panicky thought and her hands shook slightly as she finished her task. As far as she was aware, though, her mother had not had a check-up scheduled and she told herself off for being so quick to expect bad news. I won't be long,' she told him briskly, suppressing her apprehension.
She put the dog into a pen where food was already waiting for him and briefly watched the animal tuck into what was obviously his first proper meal in weeks.
