Reading this in the foreword is my favorite thing to hear. I love hearing the inspirations for stories.
“Not too long ago, while perusing 19th-century documents in the Dominican Republic’s national archives, I came across a fascinating account of a man who had been forced to sign a marriage contract under the threat of imprisonment…this kernel became the basis for Sebastian and Paulina’s story.”
Never have I ever encountered such a despicable character as Antonio, Paulina’s brother. He is very controlling of her which is the times but makes every single decision for her and treats her as his housekeeper. Then she speaks to some man and he schemes to force them together. The way he does it, jeez.
Though these two didn’t have the best start and Sebastian thought she colluded with her brother to entrap him. Once he realized she was just as much victim to his whims they started to get to know eachother without animosity.
Such a sweet romance if they could stay away from her brother. They became friends as she helped him to fix up his house that needs some updating.
❓ Are you good at fixing things?
I try to fix or mend things before I toss them.
