La dolce vita, a sweeter life of love, awaits Rachel. But can she accept it?

Rachel Golding loves her uncomplicated life in Wales. Teaching art, a close-knit group of friends, and a strong and loving bond with her mother. But the trip to Italy to meet her Italian grandmother for the first time stirs unwelcome emotions — reluctance to forgive Nonna for a lifetime of rejection, and longing to know more about the father who died before her birth. Between her cousin’s accusation she sent a series of mysterious unsigned paintings to get revenge on the family, her mother’s wedding, and her realization she feels way more than she should for her best friend Jonathan, Rachel’s carefully planned life is spiraling out of control.

Always ready for adventure, especially with the woman he loves, Jonathan Davies gladly accompanies Rach on an impulsive return journey to Tuscany. Okay, so he also hopes the time together might give him the chance to tell her how he really feels. But now she needs his friendship and support more than ever, revealing his love is a risk he dare not take. Not without some sign she wants more. A sign she may never give.

In the haze of a sunflower summer, can Rachel learn to surrender her hurts and fears to God and so embrace the life He intends for her? La dolce vita, a sweeter life of love.

Teacher Dave Maxwell likes the freedom of his nomadic lifestyle. He works contract-to-contract, moving to different high schools around Australia. He’s in Sydney for a season, caring for his grandma while his aunt is on an extended overseas vacation.

He likes to play the field. She’s content to wear her goody two shoes.

Piero Carter packs light and travels often. He loves adventure and manages to keep his life simple by sticking to a two-dates-only rule. The longest relationship he’s had — aside from family — is with his camera. As a photographer who works primarily with fashion, he’s used to having his pick of beautiful women who want to be seen by his side.

Felicity von Wolff is a makeup artist whose job takes her around the world. That’s all the adventure she craves. She has little use for Piero the Playboy. Being seen on his arm means getting tied to his reputation, and that’s the last thing she wants. Yet, somehow, they keep getting thrown together. What’s a girl to do?

Piero finally meets a woman who makes him want more than two dates, but does that mean he’s ready for one of life’s greatest adventures — falling in love? When Felicity peeks over the wall she’s built to protect herself, she discovers there’s more to the people around her than she ever realized. What will it take for Piero and Felicity to stop hiding from life and open their eyes to the rich beauty God has in store for them?

She never wants to get married. He does. To her.

The day Alessandra Rossi was born, her mammà died, and a loveless life with the father who blamed the newborn for her mother’s death followed. With the help of her oldest brother, Rafaele, Alessa moved away from home the moment she finished school—just like her other siblings had. Now sporting a degree in Architectural History and Archaeology, Alessa loves her job as a tour guide in the city of Rome—a place where she never fails to draw the attention of men. Not that Alessa cares. Fear that the man she weds would be anything like her recently deceased father has Alessa vowing to remain single.

American missionary Michael Young has moved to Rome on a two-year mission trip. His temporary future in the country doesn’t stop him from spontaneously joining Alessa’s tour after spotting her outside the Colosseum. And being bold enough to tell her afterward that one day she’d be his wife. God had told him. And he believed Him. But Alessa shows no sign of interest in Michael.

Can anything sway the beautiful and headstrong Italian to fall in love? Can anyone convince her to put her faith and hope in a Heavenly father, despite being raised by an earthly one who never loved her? Will her sister’s prompting, or a mysterious painting, or Michael himself change Alessa’s mind? About love. And about God.

Book Recommendation – Luna Rosa: Blushing Moon by Elizabeth Maddrey

Book Description:

She loves the spotlight, he prefers backstage. Can they still play love’s duet?

Nick Carter’s career as a piano tuner and teacher keeps him off-stage and allows him plenty of time to compose music he has no intention of ever publishing. Enter Louisiana Chalfant, the new symphony pianist who embodies the word diva. She’s exactly the kind of woman Nick has vowed to avoid, but when they’re cajoled into playing a duet he finds there’s more to her than he first thought.

Louisiana settles into her temporary role with the symphony in Washington, D.C., glad for the reprieve from touring professionally. She’s astonished to discover immense talent in the handsome man who keeps her piano in tune. Practicing for a duet at church gives her the perfect opportunity to get to know the real Nick.

As they play together, Nick and Louisiana develop a friendship that begins to morph into something more, but what happens when their diverging goals threaten to upstage their love?

This nine-book Christian romance series from seven of your favorite authors releases weekly from April 2018. Look out for Book 3 in the series, Rapsodia.

Narelle’s Thoughts:

I loved reading Luna Rosa and exploring Washington D.C. with Nick and Louisiana. Their first meeting is awkward and Louisiana soon realizes that Nick is her opposite. She has built a successful career and chases after her dreams without fear of failure.

Nick’s music is very personal and his compositions are from the heart. He teaches piano lessons and tunes pianos and hides away his musical compositions. If he doesn’t share his music with the world, he can’t be rejected and he can’t fail.

Louisiana’s go-getter approach to life challenges Nick to step outside his comfort zone. Their friendship evolves into a heartwarming and fun romance. Louisiana’s southern charm and enthusiasm for life is contagious and she works hard to draw out the real Nick.

Nick’s twin is the globe trotting Piero (Piero’s romance story is Bella Notte, Book 5). In Luna Rosa we gain an insight into the American branch of the Rossi family. The next book in the series, Rapsodia, features the romance of Nick’s older brother, Marco, in their home state of Texas. I highly recommend Luna Rosa to readers who enjoy contemporary romance.

Full disclosure: I enjoyed writing Sienna’s story (Solo Tu, Book 7) for A Tuscan Legacy and becoming immersed in the Tuscan Legacy story world. Learn more about the series set up and the family mystery by reading my book recommendation for That’s Amore (Book 1).

Book Description for Rapsodia:

A risk taker with a crushed spirit and a control-addicted businessman with a crushed heart… Can they surrender themselves to God’s healing love?

After the woman he loved left him for a richer guy, Marco Carter turned all his passion toward the chain of pizzerias he founded. He can control his business, unlike love. Then his world is turned upside down. He meets Samantha Jenkins on his flight home to Texas after his grandmother’s eightieth birthday. Many hours with the guarded but beautiful Samantha has him questioning his career-centered mindset.

A born risk taker and fiercely independent, Samantha misses her former life as a travel photographer and extreme sports aficionado. But more than anything, she grieves her fiancé. On her trip from Italy on the anniversary of his tragic passing, the last thing she expects is to become drawn to her neighbor on her flight. Deep inside, she still blames herself for her fiancé’s death…

Though Marco is determined to forget Samantha, the arrival of a mysterious painting reminds him of all that is missing in his life. Hoping for a new chance with her, Marco opens a pizzeria in Samantha’s hometown in south Texas. Spending time with her, he’s learning to surrender control to the Lord. But apparently it’s easier to earn millions than to make Samantha open her heart again. What will it take for her to heal enough to trust in God and take the biggest risk of all-to love again?

Book Recommendation ~ Christmas at Gate 18 by Amy Matayo

Book Recommendation:

Supermodel Rory Gray just wants to go home. After wrapping up a three-day high-fashion photo shoot overseas, she’s exhausted and ready for the holiday. A holiday that involves Hollywood parties, air-kissing the industry elite, and a whole lot of fakeness…but whatever. Once she gets through that torture, she’ll head to her beloved Seattle and the life of anonymity she misses so much. In less than twenty-four hours, she’ll be there.

Colt Ross has spent the past six months detaching himself from the Hollywood world he grew up in, and home is the last place he wants to be. But he’s been called back by his overbearing father for reasons he can only imagine. Likely reasons that involve taking over the family corporation or fund raising among Hollywood elite—something Colt has no interest in being part of. Not that he has a choice; when you’re the son of an industry executive, rubbing elbows comes with the territory. In less than twenty-four hours he’ll be home. After all this time away, home no longer appeals to him. Especially not at Christmas. Leave it to his father to ruin a holiday.

But when a late-season hurricane grounds both of their flights in the Dominican Republic, Rory and Colt find themselves stuck at the airport far longer than anticipated. As weather conditions worsen, they both begin to realize that this Christmas will be spent with strangers packed inside a single airport terminal—specifically at gate 18.

Rory and Colt are faced with a choice: band together in their misery or make this Christmas one they will never forget. For two people who aren’t real fond of the holiday, this Christmas might turn out to be the best they’ve ever had.

Narelle’s Thoughts:

I’m not a big fan of hanging around airports. I travel interstate for work and, if possible, avoid checking in baggage. When my flight home is delayed, I’m thankful the airport lounge serves a light dinner and always has soup as an option.

Rory Gray and Colt Ross are living an airport nightmare. They are stuck in a foreign country on December 23rd due to a hurricane grounding all flights out of the Dominican Republic.

Rory is a supermodel who doesn’t speak Spanish and forgot to pack a toothbrush and a change of clothes in her carry on. That makes her seem ditzy to Colt when he finds her lying beside him in the middle of the night in a crowded corner of Gate 18.

Colt is a bored playboy who has sworn off women. Six months earlier he ran away from his previous life where he worked for his domineering father. He has been summoned home to LA for Christmas.

Colt recognises Rory, although she doesn’t remember that they have previously met in person. During the story he discovers her inner beauty makes her outer beauty pale by comparison.

Rory is a loner who struggles to trust people and let go of past hurts. She’s attracted to Colt and likes that he’s not impressed by her celebrity status. She allows him to glimpse the real Rory during the few days they’re stuck together riding out the hurricane.

The story is funny and light hearted with a few poignant moments. The forced proximity is challenging for Rory and Colt in different ways.

Christmas at Gate 18 is a fun and clean romance novella with a few edgy elements that may be too much for conservative readers. The Christmas setting of a hurricane in the Caribbean was different and I enjoyed being stranded with Rory and Colt at Gate 18.
