An Aria in Venice
KaSonndra Leigh
Published April 20th 2014

**This novel is a standalone with no cliffhanger. Complete at 95,000 words.*** 

This series will include five books and one companion novel (An Aria in Venice)

His goal...One night with the ballerina.

Her goal...To beat the player at his game.

The outcome...Something completely unexpected.

Adriana Dostov pegged Luca Martuccio from day one: gorgeous, talented, arrogant, a man who has had difficulty committing to one woman in the past. He is known in fashion circles as the player with a scandalous history. So when the girls in her ballet troupe suggest she gives up her virginity to him, she doesn't say no. But she's not sure that a 'yes' is the right answer either. Yet, she can't stop herself from making the offer...a one night stand in Venice.

Luca wanted fiesty little Adriana the moment they first met - and he fully intends to have her, hence why he's agreed to accept her proposal. In the end, he'll get what he wants. No commitment. All sex.

But, as Luca discovers, there's more to the ballerina with the overbearing mother - and he can't help but care about the frightened girl behind those sad eyes.

Adriana discovers Luca isn't just walking sex on a stick - he has a wildly passionate side, a lost soul who has suffered just as much grief as her. And it could be, they're exactly what the other one needs.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+** All novels in the Musical Interlude Series are steamy contemporary romance with alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women.


I love it when I hit jackpot when using a random picker to choose what book to read next. And because it was random, I didn't read the blurb; which I think didn't do justice to the book, by the way. There's a love triangle in the story and I felt that it should have been mentioned in the blurb. And having said that, I'm glad I didn't read it before the book. I enjoyed the heroine's bittersweet realizations about the two men. The blurb was actually a spoiler. It didn't mention Nikolai's important part in the story.

I. Love. This. Book. It made me laugh, made me swoon, and it even made me cry. Adriana is my girl. I love her character, she's fun, witty, loyal, strong, a good person through and through. She may be naive but she's not stupid nor weak. Luca is... *sigh* There's just something about a man who knows how to respect and love his mother, regardless of his notoriety in other aspects. In the first half of the book I was actually rooting for Nikolai, with his dark, mysterious appeal, he's just the perfect hero. But as the story progressed, I fell for Luca's character and was hoping Adriana will pick him (remember, I didn't read the blurb. Lol). Adriana and Luca just seemed perfect together. I'm glad the author thought so, too. As for my favorite character in the book, that would be Luca's mom, Simona. The scenes with Simona were both inspiring and heartbreaking that I cried near the end.

I'm damned happy that this book is part of a series. I haven't read a story like this before and would definitely love to read more about the other characters, especially Nikolai who I'm hoping will have his own happy ending, too.

I'm recommending this to all romance readers aged 18 and above. Definitely worth reading!

About The Author

Author of the Lost Immortals Saga and the Seraphine Trilogy. I'm also a mother, blogger, reader, gardener, home renovator, and a slayer of Egyptian mummies in Tomb Raider. I believe in karma, coffee, and seriously wish that the producers of Xena would bring my favorite show ever back.

Strange things about me: everything. I am strange, odd, unusual, and generally tend to make people think I swooped down from another planet. I don't know. Maybe I did. Who knows? I'm also a member of the #zombiesurvivalcrew on twitter. So if you need protection from the undead then don't hesitate to call on us.

I was born in the race-car city of Charlotte, NC, and now live in the City of Alchemy and Medicine, NC, when I'm not hanging out in Bardonia (Lost Immortals). Most of my characters are based on people that I've met throughout my travels and adventures. People tend to stop and start conversations with me as if I've known them my entire life. Does this freak me out? Not really. My mom says that one day I'll get kidnapped by one of them. I told her that if it weren't for these lovely people then I wouldn't be able to create the stories that I do.

I have many favorite authors but there are some who truly rock my socks: Octavia Butler, Anne Rice, Kami Garcia, J.K. Rowling, Dean Koontz (on his good-book days), Stephen King (same as DK) Ann Radcliffe, Mary Shelley, Elizabeth Kostova, and so many more...

Some other common tidbits...hmm. I've watched the movie Under the Tuscan Sun almost 200 times. Seriously, the way I see it is if I keep watching it enough, then suddenly the house that Diane Lane lives in will magically appear in my backyard. I know. I have a huge imagination!
