The 5 best love stories I ever read

Updated on November 21, 2012

Why romance books are my favourite

Me and love's quiet a non-sense I would say reading love stories, because no matter of the book the end is the same, even if the book is different. But there is something attractive about these books. I have tried reading all sorts of books, but I got soon bored, as I am not a passionate book reader. I tried comedy, action, sifi, thriller, horror but I never got to the end. I'm am a bit embarrassed about that, but the truth is I couldn't get connected to that story.

Whereas love stories, even though they always have a happy ending, I always find something intriguing in that book that makes me read to the end.

And if you get a great author, the book you read becomes a movie in your head, as far as I'm concerned. I always find myself whilst reading I can actually see what I am reading. The description is so detailed I can actually detach myself from the day to day life and watch that movie to the end.

He was a charming, sensitive ordinary guy, she realized that night when they both shared the stars lighted sky and a glass of champagne. That same night she gave her body and soul to him, and above all, her virginity.

Castiglione with a rough childhood himself realizing he took her virginity, he left her, being scared he would fall in love. He didn't know she was a virgin before, but besides that he loved about her different attitude of all other women he dated, as a millionaire. She would stand for herself no matter who she was defending from, she wasn't like all the others.

But it was too late for Michelle, she fell in love with him, the man she spent time under the stars. Soon, her nightmare would begin. She felt stupid for allowing that night to happen, because she is not that kind of woman, she hated the way she knew this man and she was deceived by the way he left. She was longing for him again, but she couldn't reach him. Soon, she found out she was pregnant.

Castiglione found out as well, and he came to move her to his house and marry her. She never had a word in it, because Castiglione threatens her either she marries him for the sake of keeping his name spotless or after the baby is born he will take him from her. He was in love with her, but wouldn't let his guard down because he thought a man like him should never be carried away and he should focus only to carry the name of Castiglione house, and now he would have a heir to do it, just like his parents asked.

Michelle feels trapped and left alone in that castle, suffering of his ignorance.

But when she and her baby are in danger, Castiglione realizes he loves her and he would never leave her again.

      These are not just romance. They seem to be naughty romance or forbidden romance. Careful!
