Romance Erotica Sensual | Romance Suspense

Socialite Bellina Mazzanti Forde was the ultimate party girl—until she disappeared with Byron Brantley five years ago. Determined to find his brother, Jonathan Brantley has tracked Lina to a café in Naples and demands answers. Certain she’s hiding something, Jonathan vows not to let Lina out of his sight until she agrees to help him, even if it takes all night. Though he doesn’t trust her, he can’t deny that he wants her—has always wanted her…

Happy in her new, simpler life, Lina didn’t want to be found. Now that the past has caught up with her in the form of the sexy tycoon, she’s torn between exploring the passion he arouses in her, and facing the secrets that caused her to flee New York.

The tension between them soon leads to a scorching affair, one they both know can’t last. But when their search for Byron finds them tangling with the mob, Jon and Lina learn they have no one to trust but each other…

(Hyunjin Jeon 12:39pm November 27, 2011)

This sounds like a series I will want to read.
Marjorie Carmony 6:35am November 27, 2011)

Sounds interesting.
Pam Howell 8:06am November 27, 2011)

Wow..It sounds like alot of work went into this book. It sounds like a great book. Can't wait to read!
Dawn Staniszeski 10:53am November 27, 2011)

Your description has left me wanting to find out more about Lina and Jonathan. LEARNING TO TRUST sounds like a winner.
Anna Speed 12:38pm November 27, 2011)

I really like the idea of Learning To Trust and hope to read
it soon (sooner if I win it *Hint, Hint ;)*
Ilona Fenton 12:55pm November 27, 2011)

Thank you for sharing with us... your book sounds like one I would enjoy reading!
Colleen Conklin 1:14pm November 27, 2011)

I agree that flaws make more interesting characters. Your settings sound intriguing, too.
Alyson Widen 3:46pm November 27, 2011)

Wow! The story sounds really good. And, I am excited that you have more books planned. I think it is so great when an author creates a world and then discovers that many characters in the new world need their stories told!
Jennifer Beyer 4:40pm November 27, 2011)

There's noting quite as satisfying as reading about wounded
people and seeing them overcome their trust issues and love
Lisa Richards 8:41pm November 27, 2011)

Sounds great...and a series would be even better! Flaws in
characters make them more likable, because any times we can
relate to one flaw or another!
Patti DelValle 8:42pm November 27, 2011)

Sounds like quite an emotional story. Good luck with the new release and
thank you for the contest.
E Felder 8:50pm November 27, 2011)

Great story..I can't imagine going through that myself. I can't wait to read!
Victoria Kondovski 10:06pm November 27, 2011)

Sounds like a great story.
Amy Milne 10:41pm November 27, 2011)

Looking forward to reading LEARNING TO TRUST.
Mary C 10:54pm November 27, 2011)

perfect characters aren't as interesting as the flawed and all to human ones. And it sounds like you put a LOT of work into this book. I learned things I didn't know just from the blog. :^) Very intriguing,

There was a time in my life when I felt very betrayed and for a while I didn't trust anyone. It was lonely and scary. I finally confided in one friend and then got the courage to trust a few more. I don't think I will ever get over the betrayal, but I am not as afraid to trust those who are close to me. Sounds like a great read and I will put it on my wish list.
Patti Paonessa 1:42pm November 28, 2011)

Hello Lynne,
I think I need to add Learning to Trust to my list. I like to
read about people who have flaws and learn to better people
because of them. Reading about someone who is perfect is
Julianne Keller 9:45pm November 30, 2011)

Thank you for your wonderful comments!
Although I plan my books, things still happen as I'm writing it that lead me in different directions, and rather than force it, I'll stop and replan and think it through again. That's where knowing your characters comes in, I think.
And we have a winner to the contest! Congratulations, Ilona, you should have your book by now!
