Overview

Stefano Leone is closing in on one of the most dangerous mobsters on earth. He's surrounded by armed men, his life under constant threat. He's not had time for sex in years, let alone love. A beautiful American woman, however, slips right under his guard, into his bed and his heart. But does she truly want Stefano? Or has she been sent to seduce him-or worse?

Designer Jamie McIntyre is on a working vacation in Palermo, Sicily, soaking up the sunshine and the art, trying to contact a former law student of her grandfather's. She's thinking "nerd in a suit". But Judge Stefano Leone is as far from a boring suit as possible. He's also the toughest, sexiest man she's ever met, in bed and out. There's no resisting his commanding presence or his beautiful body. Jaime quickly falls under his mesmerizing spell.

Until Stefano's enemy strikes, dealing a devastatingly personal blow . . . and forcing Jaime to make an impossible choice.

    I'm kind of surprised at the low amount of stars given to The It

    I'm kind of surprised at the low amount of stars given to The Italian because I really enjoyed it. Some people might think she dwelled too much on descriptions of scenery, furnishings, art, but she is an artist and she's in Italy, and Ms. Rice really brings Palermo to life. The instant attraction between Jaime and Stefano is as molten as Etna, and the sex - as always in a Lisa Marie Rice offering - is smokin'. But she does build emotion between the two. Because Jaime was raised by her grandfather who knew similar threats to what Stefano is facing as he legally pursues a very dangerous man, she understands the precautions he must take and that their time together must be limited. That only makes their times together more exciting and elicit. I do agree that the ending seemed rushed, but this is a shorter work than she's been doing lately. If we could have had a brief epilogue showing a more extended reunion after...well, I don't want to reveal too much, but more smoochies at the ending would have been a more satisfying finale.

    Rushed but sweet

    Could have been better. The story felt rushed and there was a lot of repititve phrases. Not her best work.

    Good but not great

    ## This book had potential. If only the author used more pages to describe the main couple or develop their characters instead of describing everything else. The scenery, the architecture, furniture, gardens, etc...way too many adjectives. And the ending was very abrupt which as a reader is very disappointing. However, the hero and heroine DID have fabulous chemistry and the sex was HOT, which is the sole reason I gave this book 3 stars.
