A new image for That Day at the Lake
I have decided to change the cover of my last book That Day at the Lake, but the story within is the same charged, erotic romance between Luca and Adriana, which starts when they meet as children in Naples, Italy, and continues in England and New York, where they eventually meet again after being torn apart by events. Let me tell you a little more about the book, and, if you have not already done so, you might be tempted to go along to Amazon and buy (and hopefully, review!) the book. These are some of the reviews it has already received from readers.
“What a fascinating story that is a romantic suspense, with vendettas, murder, theft, and secrets.”
“Romantic, sexy and nerve wracking story of two lovers who met as children, lost each other through tragedy and then met again as adults and fell in love only to find themselves in dire trouble.”
“The story will take you on their journey with ups and downs keeping you on the edge of your seat as if you where there with them This is a Must read.”
“The story kept me on the edge of my seat as the plot unfolds.”
“Fun, sweet and sexy.” 4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Here is the blurb:
Adriana and Luca spent several of their childhood years together in Naples, Italy, but they were not related. At the age of eight, Adriana had been rescued by Luca’s father after her mother had died, and for six years she lived happily with their family, hero-worshipping the handsome boy, who was two years her senior. But one day, while swimming in the lake, Adriana and Luca both realised that the feelings they had for each other were not those of sister and brother.
But tragedy arose a few days later, however, when gangsters killed Luca’s parents, and relatives took him away, leaving a distressed fourteen-year-old girl to be fostered by another family. Adriana became bitter and resentful, but a sympathetic teacher, who encouraged her to pass exams and aim for university, turned around her life.
Meeting Naomi, the girl who would be her lifelong friend, led Adriana to live and work in New York where, in an event that seemed to her to be almost miraculous, she was reunited with Luca, ten years after they had parted. But life was not destined to be simple for her. She found that, not only was Luca involved in possibly illegal activity, he had developed a passion for a BDSM lifestyle and told a shy, sexually inexperienced, Adriana that he could not change the way he was, not even for her, and he refused to develop their relationship into anything other than friendship. His decision almost broke Adriana’s heart, hearing that Luca did not want her in the way that she wanted him.
Here is a little excerpt:
When we arrived back at my apartment, and she took off her coat, I thought again how amazing she looked. Now she didn’t even have the protection, albeit miniscule protection, of a pair of panties, given that I had ripped them from her, and my cock hardened again. She smiled at me.
“I hope you are not going to make me go home in the morning dressed like this. That really would be a walk of shame.”
I leaned against the back of the couch, my arms crossed, slowly taking in the view before me.
“You know, you really deserve a thorough spanking, going out dressed like that.”
“Well then you had better give me one. Spank me Luca.”
I woke to find the sun streaming through the bedroom window. Looking up with one eye opened and the other still closed, I saw that Luca was awake, lying on one side and looking down on me.
“Good morning. Do you want to talk Adriana?”
“No, I just want to fuck. Oh, good morning by the way.”
“For a prospective sub you are becoming a little demanding.”
“Sorry, am I not supposed to want sex?”
“There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you wanting sex, in fact it is a condition of you being here in bed with me. It’s just that a good little sub waits to be asked.”
“Sorry. Then of course I will withdraw that demand and lie here to await your pleasure.”
“Good, a fast learner, that’s what I like.”
