And the sweetness of love …
And the flicker of light …
Fate has brought Lucca and Lexi together. Can fate take L’amore away?
This is the second book in the Luminara series, and you need to read the first to understand what’s happening in this installment.
The story picks up with Lexi settling down with Lucca after their Italian vacation and engagement. She’s now making the move into his Castello de Caruso. They have to continue to learn how to live and communicate with one another. Lexi has progressed remarkably since being introduced as a shy and timid woman in Lussuria. She has become more firm in her beliefs and her ability to speak up. She’s also more comfortable around strange men.
Lucca continues to be his domineering, yet loving self. It’s clear he always has Lexi’s best interests at heart but he sometimes goes about it in the wrong way. He also has an issue when he gets overly stressed of not talking to Lexi but instead drinking too much.
With a large cast of supporting characters you’d think you get lost but truthfully they grow into their own and start to show individual personalities. They relate well to Lexi and Lucca and add to the story by showing the lessening of Lexi’s fears and the overall growth of the relationship.
Michael Parks, Lexi’s childhood torturer, is back. For a majority of this installment he’s very much in the background and only peripheral to the story; however, by the end he becomes the focus and even the catalyst to set up the third book.
This is a solid series filled with fairytale type romance and a side of erotica. It’ll be interesting to see how the past becomes the present in the next part.
