The Escort

The Escort by Gina Robinson

True love runs deep.

Young, beautiful Italian mail-order bride Angelina Alessandro is married by proxy to an older man she’s never met—her only chance to escape the poverty of Italy for the hope of a new life in America. But to join him in the wilderness of Idaho in 1899 she’s not allowed to travel alone. Now she’s torn between duty and desire as she fights her growing attraction to her handsome and enigmatic escort.

Mine owner and explosives expert Tonio Domani prefers to travel alone. In his line of work he can’t afford distractions. Against his better judgment he’s coerced into playing chaperone to a beautiful and tempting bride. The dangers he faces daily in his mine are real and the increasingly volatile powder keg of North Idaho’s mining country makes his return there even more dangerous. But what scares him most is the rising passion he feels for Angelina and the danger of losing his heart to her.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think this was a sweet romance. You watched it develop throughout. I found myself cheering for Tonio. He's quite the hero in the story. Always coming to Angel's rescue. I rather liked the full blown history of mining that was woven through the book. But, at times it seemed long winded and I wanted it to get back to the story. This is a good read though! Most historicals I grab are based in England and titles and what not, so it was refreshing for an American history tale, especially a sweet romance like this. I think for the most part it was well written and shows a lot of research on the author's part. Well worth picking up and reading.
