Release day: The Italian’s Bold Reckoning

1 July 2017

Today is the official release of The Italian’s Bold Reckoning by Annie West (book 4, Hot Italian Nights) (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

He’s lured her back. Will she take the bait?

He believed their passion could never fade. Yet it’s a year since Matteo De Laurentis lived with his gorgeous, talented, obstinate wife. Angela insists they’re mismatched, but Matteo refuses to give up the only woman he’ll ever love. Italy’s sexiest leading man is determined to get his wife back. By whatever means necessary.

Angela is desperate to avoid working on this film with the handsome, charismatic actor-turned-director who happens to be her estranged husband. It was a mistake ever to think she could hold her own in his glamorous world. But now she’s trapped in Venice, unable to escape the one man who turns her brain to mush and her body to a blaze of passion.

Is Matteo taking revenge to a whole new level, taunting her with everything she’s given up? Or is this seductive torture as difficult for him as it is for her? She can only pray he never discovers her secret weakness – that she’s still desperately in love with him.

Annie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Do you like reunion stories? Books about second chances and happy endings even after things have gone badly awry? If so this is a story for you. Particularly if you like sexy, passionate stories and characters who refuse to give in but face up to the problems life throws their way. And, if you want a touch of glamour and a story set in romantic Venice, then definitely try this one. Angela and Matteo have been married just over a year and separated for most of it. But Matteo is determined to discover the real reason Angela left him and win her back. Not just win her but keep her. As neither can break free of their feelings for each other they must face the truth about themselves and their relationship. It’s a love story set in a sophisticated, glamorous setting, but the issues this pair face are real as they work for their happy ever after.

You can find out more about this book at Annie’s website or buy it from Amazon.

      Thank you so much Helen. I had the most wonderful time writing this one. Possibly because it’s set in Venice so I lived there in my mind while I wrote. 🙂
