Tell Me About It
Yes, I've been quiet. Only because I've been working hard on getting this book into ship shape. I mean it's now 75,000 words (because I confused my editor by writing faster than I think.) But at the very least, you now get a good idea of what the deuce is going on in this story.
Like Winter in Game of Thrones, it's almost here...
Eau de blurb
Widow. Sister. Mother. All those labels hung from Emmanuella Harrison, like the 'A' of shame. After so many years of playing it straight, she'd forgotten who the real Ella was. Sometimes, whenever she managed to make the severe Durante Da Canaveze smile, the sparkle of the woman she'd been a long time ago ignited in her. But the Mother label needed to be first and foremost. No messing around with sexy farmers. Farmers! Just farmers. None of that. All right, maybe a little bit of messing around. The tip doesn't count.
The moment Ella drifted into Tuscany, Durante started to doubt the wisdom of his years of self-imposed solitude. With every teasing grin, backless dress and playful conversation, he fell more and more deeply under her spell. As dazzled as he is by her, Durante is convinced his history is enough to not deserve anyone, let alone someone like Ella.
And yet, without the labels, without the barriers, without being afraid of what may be, no two people will ever be as perfect for each other.
The penultimate story in the Italian Knights Series is all about blunt children, loud mouthed opinionated, family members, redemption in farming olives and how love can make one forgive even the most off-key of voices.
