“Annie looked over at the strappingly handsome matador she had just agreed to marry,” writes Nina Purtee. “Hailed from generations of Spanish matadors, Ramone was legendary for his skill at facing the fiercest of bulls. However, there was so much more about him Annie found irresistible…his layers seemed to move from sheer strength and focus when fighting to achingly sweet gentleness filled with romance when they were alone together. Her mother had commented that perhaps it was his poet’s soul that gave him the balance needed to off-set his bold profession.”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Nina Purtee’s passionate tale begins as Annie and Ramone celebrate their recent engagement. Ramone is a dashing matador who betrayed his father’s wishes in order to keep Annie and her father safe during the treacherous British turnover of Hong Kong to Beijing. The love-struck couple’s path seems to be on course, however political intervention turns their love story upside-down. Annie and Ramone take refuge in the picturesque island of Mallorca off the coast of Spain. The couple excitedly plan their wedding while in the midst of the King’s Cup Regatta and the Night of the Pilgrims Pilgrimage. But when friends and family gather to celebrate their love, secrets will be revealed. Annie and Ramone are led down a series of puzzling crossroads that have the power to change their destiny. Can their relationship endure?
