Elizabeth Sanderson thought that she was losing her mind when she started having erotic dreams about a strange man with long dark hair. She was a twenty-eight year old virgin who taught third grade for heaven's sake! What was happening to her? Then her friend Lisa talks her into getting a tattoo and she draws what appears to be a family crest, but she knows that she has never seen it before, at least she doesn't remember seeing it before.
When the man of her dreams spots her in a restaurant on the eve of Lisa's wedding, Elizabeth panics and tries her best to avoid him. However, Roberto San Miguel has been waiting for Elizabeth for his whole life and is not about to let her get away. He wants to take the time to court her and get to know her slowly, but he knows that his enemy, Hernandez, is hot on his trail and will use anything - or anyone - to cause Roberto pain so he kidnaps Elizabeth and whisks her off to his yacht to set sail for Isla San Miguel.
Elizabeth responds to Roberto, but she thinks that he is crazy because he keeps talking about how they are destined to be together and that they are soul mates. He even thinks that they are the reincarnations of star-crossed lovers Lupita & Rafael! She can't seem to get it into Roberto's thick skull that she just isn't that type of person. Then Roberto shows that he can literally read Elizabeth's mind and she knows that he is crazy. Roberto tries his best to be patient with her and help her discover who she really is, but it is difficult for him to wait when he has finally found his true soul mate. Finally, he tells Elizabeth that he will give her one week to come to him and be his wife. But will Elizabeth have the courage to face her love for Roberto and their intimate link...?
The story was not especially original, but I just loved this book anyway! Elizabeth acted much like any woman would in her situation, drawn to Roberto one moment and trying to escape the next, and I really liked her as a character. Roberto was a gorgeous hero who would do anything to keep his soul mate by his side and his people happy. The romance between the two main characters was hot and I loved the touch of the paranormal in this story. Savannah Michaels also has a nice, smooth writing style and good descriptions. The book is pretty pricey, but I thought that it was well worth it. A real keeper!
