There were times when I was fanning myself, sitting on the edge of my seat, and so mad I had to put it down. The steamy scenes were oh so delicious!” — Bengal Reads blog, 5 stars “Enrico was incredibly sexy and Kate is feisty which makes for a very explosive relationship! I loved how the author incorporated the beauty of Italy and the romantic undertones of the land. The sexual intimacy for me was off the charts! … Highly recommend this read!!” (4.5 stars) –Romance Novel Junkies “I was drawn into the story from the absolute beginning, unable to put the book down. The dialogue was simple perfection.” (4 stars) — Reading by the Beach blog REVENGE: A woman on the run. A damaged Mafia don. A rival bent on revenge… Kate Andretti is married to the Mob–but doesn’t know it. When her husband uproots them to Italy, Kate leaves everything she knows behind. Alone in a foreign land, she finds herself locked in a battle for her life against a husband and a family who will “silence” her if she will not do as they wish. When her husband tries to kill her, she accepts the protection offered by a wealthy businessman with Mafia ties. He’s not a mobster, he claims. Or is he? Enrico Lucchesi never wanted to be a Mafia don, and now he’s caught in the middle of a blood feud with the Andretti family. His decision to help Kate brings the feud between the families to a boil. When Enrico is betrayed by someone in his own family, the two of them must sort out enemies from friends–and rely on each other or die alone. The only problem? Enrico cannot reveal his identity to Kate, or she’ll bolt from his protection, and he’ll be duty-bound to kill her to safeguard his family’s secret. Attacks from without and within push them both to the breaking point, and soon Enrico is forced to choose between protecting the only world he knows and saving the woman he loves. Excerpt: Enrico raised a hand in greeting to Kate, and she returned his wave and started descending the steps. She headed straight for him, her auburn hair gleaming in the sun, a few strands of it blowing across her pale cheek and into her green eyes. With a delicate hand, she brushed the hair out of her face. Enrico’s fingers twitched with the desire to touch her cheek like that, to feel the slide of her silky hair. A small, almost secretive smile crossed her features, and he swallowed hard. Dio mio. He felt that smile down to his toes. She stopped a couple feet from him. “Signor Lucchesi, it’s good to see you, as always.” He bowed his head slightly. “And you, Signora Andretti.” He paused, a grin spreading across his face. “Since when did we get so formal, Kate?” She half-turned and motioned to the doorway behind her. And that was when he noticed it–a bruise on her right cheek. Merda! Had someone hit her? Tearing his eyes off the mark, he followed her gesture. A tall, sandy-haired man, well-muscled and handsome, leaned in the doorway, his arms crossed. “My husband, Vincenzo, is here.” Enrico’s smile receded. He looked back to Kate. “I’d like to meet him.” And if he did this to her, he’s going to pay. ******** Sensuality level: Hot (RT Book Reviews scale) WARNING: This book contains graphic language, sexual situations, and violence.Romance

I noticed him through a window during the job interview. The way my mind raced and my heart fluttered, it was obvious how much I wanted him.

The last woman Thomas, Lord Avondale, expected to fall in love with was the wife he betrayed and abandoned six years ago. When Rose doesn’t accept his apology, however, he loses all hope of a happy future together. Yet he’s thankful she has agreed to come to his bed to beget an heir. Known as the Ice Maiden at Queen Elizabeth I’s court, Rose has been trying to forget the man she once loved—a love she thought destroyed after he spent their wedding night with his mistress. Withstanding Thomas’s charms, however, is proving more difficult than she expected. Can she forgive the ultimate betrayal? Can he ever atone for what he did? Note: Courting His Countess is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, about one-quarter the size of a full-length novel. I’ve priced it as low as I am able. A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR COURTING HIS COUNTESS may be shorter than most of my other books, but it was one of the most difficult stories I’ve ever written. What Thomas did to his wife is despicable and when I began to write, I didn’t think I could make you, the reader, believe he was hero material. Yet the characters and their tale wouldn’t leave my head, nor would the opening lines, so I wrote the story anyway. As I progressed, and especially when I switched to Thomas’s viewpoint, I realized how very male he was being, and part of me started to feel sorry for him. Being a nobleman of his time, he just didn’t get it. Not until he finally saw how his actions had affected a wonderful, strong woman. COURTING HIS COUNTESS breaks one of the “rules” of the romance genre, and I know some of you will find Thomas’s actions unforgiveable. I certainly don’t blame you for that! But I’ve never been very good at sticking to the rules, and I hope you don’t blame ME for listening to the voices in my head.Romance
