Day 5 - 15 Day Book Blogging Challenge

15 Day Book Blogging Challenge hosted by Good Books, Good Wine's Challenge 

The Unwanted Wife is written by Natasha Anders. Here is the description from Goodreads:
All Alessandro de Lucci wants from his wife is a son but after a year and a half of unhappiness and disillusionment, all Theresa de Lucci wants from her ice cold husband is a divorce. Unfortunate timing, since Theresa is about to discover that she’s finally pregnant and Alessandro is about to discover that he isn’t willing to lose Theresa.
I wandered across this book and decided to check it out. Two tissue boxes later, I was finished. Both finished with the book and totally wrung out, finished with the day. Anything that needed to be done from that point until the next morning was just going to have to wait. So why did I cry so much over this book? It was heartbreaking. Theresa is in love with Alessandro. Head over heels gone for the man. Alessandro is under the mistaken impression that Theresa plotted with her father to trap him. He is angry and cruel to Theresa. When the book begins, Theresa has had enough. She is broken and can take no more. Her hopelessness leaps off the page. So of course she turns up pregnant. Salt, meet open wound.

Will Alessandro and Theresa ever clear the air so they can be a family? Since this book is not a wallbanger then you can assume that they do but it is a long and complicated road. Paved with tears.

Here is Natasha's Facebook page if you want to say hello.

More books that made me tear up. Caution! Some spoilers regarding why they made me cry.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks 
The ONLY Nicholas Sparks book I have read. I sobbed so hard. I went to see the movie, mad as hell because I knew I was going to sob more but I had to see it. I am a masochist like that.

The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Highland Pleasures #1) by Jennifer Ashley 
I adore this book. Ian is such a special hero, awkwardly brilliant. He endured so much, he deserves his HEA in spades.

Shelter Mountain (Virgin River #2) by Robyn Carr
Domestic abuse. One of the best comeuppance scenes ever written. Go Preacher!

Lisa Kleypas has a way of making you cry. Often.

  • Mine til Midnight (The Hathaways #1) The heroine makes so many sacrifices out of love for her siblings. The hero is mighty fine. Made me long for a gypsy of my own. Sorry Hades. 
  • Seduce Me at Sunrise (The Hathaways #2) Hero has a dark past he fears would hurt the heroine, so he tries to fight the attraction. 
  • Devil in Winter (Wallflowers #3) Reforming the rake. Remorseful rakes always tug at my heart. 
  • Scandal in Spring (Wallflowers #4) Oy vey. So much angst. 
  • Blue-Eyed Devil (Travis #2) Domestic abuse. 
  • Smooth Talking Stranger (Travis #3) Loss of a child, of sorts. 
  • Worth Any Price Marriage of convenience to protect the heroine form an obsessed madman. 

Lora Leigh

  • Wild Card (Elite Ops #1) Heroine endures the loss of her spouse to learn he never died, but what happened was worse than she ever imagined. Second chances. Very intense read.
  • Maverick (Elite Ops #2) Betrayal and past pains resurface. 

Julia Quinn. Read her Bridgerton series. It is awesome.

Acheron (Dark Hunter #15) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
A mammoth book that gives us all the details we have been waiting for about or favorite Dark Hunter. It was painful to read his past and so sweet to see him fall in love.
