Cross My Heart (2012)

Cross My Heart. Sasha Gould. 2012. Random House. 272 pages.

Cross My Heart is an enjoyable historical romance set in Venice in 1585. Laura, our heroine, was miserable in the convent, but her sister's tragic death changes everything: for her sister's death means Laura is now her father's pawn. Her sister's future husband is now her future husband. The thought disgusts her. Laura doesn't really appreciate her father's politics and his scheming to always make the best deal, the best alliance. Laura's options are few: she can choose to trust her father OR she can choose to trust a secret league of dangerous women. Women holding secrets--big secrets at times--that try to manage things behind-the-scenes. If Laura tells them a secret, they assure her she won't have to marry that repulsive man. But are these women especially trustworthy?

Cross My Heart IS a romance. Laura meets a young man, a painter. The attraction for both is very strong. But Laura is having a hard time trusting anyone as she discovers that secrets are ever-abundant and no one is quite as they appear...

I definitely liked this one.
