Summary

Paolo Peretti is a billionaire thanks to his father’s hard work.

He is proud and vain, always used to getting the best that money can buy. His collection of the world’s finest would be complemented by the beautiful, sexy Sofia Aurora Romano.

Sofia is perfect in every way except that she’s not rich. Paolo is too proud to be seen with a poor, working-class woman. His friends would blackball him if they found out.

Sofia bears on his mind, and soon he can’t think of anything else. He wants her. She turns him down, finding his strutting pride a turnoff. He has to have her, and nothing will suit him but to have her, own her. His collection would be complete with her at his side.

Can he put his pride away and go to her? Can he win her heart and own her?

Good short romance

A nice and short story that shows that love has nothing to do with wealth and class but you have to be willing to put your pride aside.

Lovely story

Paolo’s Pride is about Paolo’s arrogance and keeping up appearances. He sets his eyes on Sofia, a “poor” girl, daughter of a servant. She rejects him though. Paolo struggles, he really wants Sofia. Is he able to set his pride aside? I loved how it all came together.

Great performance from the narrator, Kirsten Leigh.

Love over pride

I’m glad Paolo finally swallowed his pride and went tea. But most of all I’m hoping after his brooding he realized that some of his friends were only there because of his money. A happy ending for this story.
Kirsten did an amazing job again.
