Overview

From bestselling, award-winning novelist Susan Wiggs comes this classic tale of danger and romance. Winner of the RITA® Award, the highest honor from Romance Writers of America, it is an enthralling, unforgettable tale of the dark allure of passion and the enduring power of love.

Under cover of night. . .

Sandro Cavalli, Lord of the Night, is legendary for bringing criminals to justice. But in the city's shadowy alleyways, a new, deadly plot is afoot—a sinister threat that even Sandro needs help to uncover.

He enlists the aid of an alluring, sensuous beauty, Laura Bandello. But Laura's innocent loveliness may hide a dark secret, and Sandro vows to keep his distance. Yet the deeper he delves into the underworld, the harder he falls for Laura. Pursued by unspeakable danger, Sandro risks his honor, his reputation, and even his heart—all for the love of a mysterious beauty he can't quite trust.

Wiggs expertly pulled me into the dark drama and tensions of the many plottings and drew me as well into the lives of the compelling main characters. A series of grizzly murders set in a Venice swirling in its mysterious fog are to be solved by the equally dark lord of the night, Sandro Cavalli, the head of the secret police. Nothing has ever distracted him from his duty until the mesmerizing effect on him of a young, immensely talented artist apprenticing with Titian, Laura Bandello. An orphan raised in a convent, Laura lives to paint and to be admitted into the all-male Academia, an unheard of ambition. She is even willing to become a courtesan - indeed she has offered her favors as a prize - all so she will be able to paint the number of canvases required by the Academia and purchase the costly art materials. Will Sandro buy her favors and save her from the brothel? Since he's met her there's been one close call after another on her life, on his, and other killings, not to mention an accumulation of prime suspects. Are these all part of a plot against the Doge of Venice or the twisted work of a serial killer? You must just read Lord of the Night and find out for yourself!
