Overview

Eight stories with a common theme---the wonder of finding love---sweep the reader into sensuous worlds where ordinary people discover, or rediscover, love. Foolish love, forbidden love, married love---even murderous love, each story is a seductive jewel populated with characters that seem like someone we could know---or someone we could be. Each of the stories in this collection is an exquisitely rendered portrait of people from a broad range of ages each proving that passion and love are eternal, regardless of life's far-ranging challenges. "Gorgeous! Very poignant. It is a wonderful thing to be able to immerse a reader in an entire era, a way of life, a culture in miniature - places, forms of music, habits of speech ... I felt transported, and that's something good fiction must do for me." - Peter Anastas, author of No Fortunes. "Valentine's stories are as varied as the women of the world, and their great passions are never simple or uncomplicated. Her understanding of the human heart drives these stories, filled with nuance, pitch-perfect voice, surprise, and heartache. These are stories of women who have lived full lives, taking risks and living out the dictates of their passion." -Susan Oleksiw, author of A Murderous Innocence (For more, visit MyLastRomance.com)
