Iris Brown was a single mother for three years. The father of her child Paola didn’t know she existed. When he discovered he had a daughter and insisted on inserting himself into her life, there was nothing Iris could do, because Sergio Batista-Sanchez was rich and powerful. Fortunately he allowed Iris to accompany them at all times so she never had to be separated from her daughter.
I loved this story. I was all set to think one way about certain characters because of what I had read about them as seen through the eyes of other characters. But as in real life, you can’t judge a book by its cover. Nor should you jump to conclusions.
I really enjoyed the settings in His Secret Daughter and reading about them made me want to visit those countries for myself.
Iris had a lot to learn and while it took her a long time to finally understand things, she did eventually get it. While there were a number of twists and turns in the novel, I had pretty much guessed the outcome long before the end of the book, but that in no way interfered with my enjoyment of reading the book to get there.
I think Sergio behaved the way he did because he was afraid Iris was going to keep Paola away from him and Iris kept Paola away from him the first three years because she was afraid that Sergio would take Paola away from her. They forgot one thing: communication. Once they got that going, things were different.
I would be happy to pick His Secret Daughter up and reread it again just for the pleasure of reading it. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy romance novels. I gave this book 5 stars out of 5.
