Release day: At the Italian’s Bidding

1 August 2017

Today is the official release of At the Italian’s Bidding by Annie West (book 5, Hot Italian Nights) (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

She’s out of bounds but how can he resist?

Niccolo might risk his neck on the racing car circuit but there’s one thing he won’t risk — his friendship with the De Laurentis family. Which means he dare not give in to his feelings for his best friend’s sister, Lia De Laurentis, no matter how impossible it is to keep his distance. Yet when he needs a pretend girlfriend, just for a weekend, who else can he trust to play the part?

Lia can’t believe she says yes to Niccolo Marchesi’s outrageous request. Her teenage crush on her brother’s daredevil friend has turned into full-scale infatuation, so how is she supposed to withstand two whole nights of temptation, pretending to be his lover? She knows every touch is a lie but it feels like the real thing. When honour and passion clash, will his scruples prove stronger than her willpower?

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

One of my favourite romance themes is forbidden love. To me there’s something deliciously exciting about that tug of war between passion and reason, between temptation and duty. It’s like listening to a ticking clock, waiting for the moment the rising tension finally breaks! That’s how it felt writing At The Italian’s Bidding. Lia has been in love with Niccolo since her teens but he’s never seen as her as more than the kid sister of his best friend, or so she believes. Meanwhile, Niccolo, who’s only too aware that Lia is a desirable woman, is determined not to betray her family’s trust in him. The question is what will happen when they’re trapped together, pretending to be lovers? Will they give in to temptation? And if they do, will it be the end of their friendship or the beginning of something far stronger between them?

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