The Untamed Argentinean - Susan Stephens
Bella Wheeler had quite a bit resting on her shoulders. She had finally succeeded in restoring her father's reputation, one that had once been tainted. She was a sweet and lovely horse trainer for the British Polo Club and was highly respected in her profession. She was well liked by her co-workers and taken back when she met Nero Caracas, the famous and gorgeous Argentinean polo player.
Susan Stephens took my breath away with The Untamed Argentinean especially with her hero Nero. He was not only rich and famous, he was definitely sexy and whatever he wanted he went after it. Bella definitely he wanted and so with the help of the Prince of England, he worked out an arrangement similar to the program Bella ran in England for children. At a palace dinner, the Prince requested Bella and the horse she loved Misty, travel to Argentina. Once there, she would set up a program for under privileged children, teaching them to ride. She was furious being used that way by Nero. Yet I think secretly she "tingled" all over at the thought of spending time with him.
His palatial ranch was magnificent. His staff Bella fell in love with and they fell in love with Bella and so did the children. The attraction between Bella and Nero was magnificent and their love story such a pleasure to read. I could just picture everything, the horses, the wealthy polo players who came to play against Nero. His horse trainer who adored Bella, his cooks and staff loved her as well. As for Bella, well she fell hard for Nero. It wasn't all hearts and flowers for them. Their passion was amazing but in the end, yes it had to end with Bella returning to England, leaving behind her beloved horse. I cried buckets at their parting.
Magnificent, doesn't even begin to describe this love story. Past hurts for them both concerning their childhoods but in the end, Nero realized his love for this woman was simple and pure and returned to fetch her back home to Argentina in a most romantic and lovely way, thanks to the very talented Susan Stephens.
