Lussuria L’Amore

Lussuria. Book one: The Luminara Series.

Lussuria: Italian for Lust.

It raids your senses. Invades your mind, body and soul.

Claims you, owns you, and life is never, ever, the same again.

Feel or file?

For lust is a threat.

It can’t be trusted. It should be filed under D for danger.

But when the intoxicating sweetness devours you, there’s no room for filing any emotion other than A for Alive.

***

Lexi, born from a tragic Stockholm Syndrome case, is now twenty-six-years-old and compartmentalising her carefully constructed life. Hired as Club di Energia’s physiotherapist, the stunning beauty thinks she has a handle on her damaging past. But, she never lets anyone too close.

Lexi has no intention of giving in to the charming Lucca Caruso when he has an emergency physiotherapy session. Despite his sexy body, handsome face, and Italian that renders her speechless, Lexi is able to resist.

A Tuscany vacation with her best friend is just what she needs. A cooking course at a villa near the Chianti hills, will take her mind off a certain set of mesmerizing azure blue eyes.

Lexi never expected to see the Italian god again, but they’re staying at the same villa.

She finds herself on a journey of self-discovery, helplessly falling under the temptation of her heart’s desire. Romantic, loving, insatiable Lucca Caruso turns her world upside down.

He makes her feel alive.

Through the passion of lust and the sweetness of love, Lexi feels safe … until her past comes back to haunt her.

One woman’s destiny to find her light, and the one man who can take here there.

But can he keep her there?

Welcome to the Luminara series.


L’amore # Book 2 of The Luminara Series.

This is the ultimate romantic love story. This is the most tragic love story.

A life of Love. A life with Love. His Love.

The Love ~ L’amore.

File I for intense. Lexi and Lucca’s relationship is so intense and all-consuming, they barely have time to catch their breath.

Following her passionate, whirlwind romance in Tuscany, Lexi has finally learned how to trust, finding true love and happiness with Lucca Caruso.

File E for earth-shattering. Lexi is about to experience the sexiest, earth-shattering eroticism with her insatiable Italian God, Lucca.

Lucca builds Lexi’s confidence and encourages her to lose her inhibitions with his ‘ask-get’ approach. He teaches her to ask for the desires that she lusts for, and he’s all too willing to give her his sexual gifts of the day.

They have no boundaries.

They have each other.

They live for one another.

File T for timeless. Their love transcends time. He is her always. She is his forever.

Lucca promises to love, cherish, support, and protect his dolcezza. Recent discoveries leave Lexi feeling anxious and uncertain, until Lucca indulges her in romance, adoration, and tender loving care. They plan for their future and everything appears to be getting brighter.

Until darkness prevails …

The tormentor of her dreams.

The devil in disguise.

The uprising of Michael Parks.

Michael has unfinished business, and his resurrection will rewrite Lexi and Lucca’s destiny forever. He wants revenge and will stop at nothing until he has it. Dark black was the colour of her life … and is the colour of her afterlife.

Alexis Evangeline Robertson is going straight to Hell.

After the desires of lust …

And the sweetness of love …

And the flicker of light …

Fate has brought Lucca and Lexi together. Can fate take L’amore away?

Heart and soul.

His light.

Our light.

Luminoso.

Lexi’s tormentor and ghost of her past is back—with a vengeance. Michael Parks won’t stop until he lures the pretty little lamb to his merciless slaughter. He’s looking for justice and will show her no mercy in his twisted, brutal plan for revenge.

She can run and play house, but she can’t hide forever. Her fate is sealed, and Michael will ensure she suffers a tragic and horrific death.

Lexi will pay dearly for her sins.

***

When Lucca discovers Lexi’s half-brother has skipped Australian parole and is in Scotland, taunting her and leaving signs, he impulsively takes Lexi and her mum Grace back to Tuscany.

Lucca vows to protect them both, taking extreme measures to ensure their safety while trying hard to provide a stable and positive life for them both.

They break. He breaks.

Between running his successful empire, Osurac Industries, and keeping everyone back home in Scotland safe until Michael has been apprehended, Lucca needs to love his dolcezza like never before—because she’s never needed him more than she does right now.

Recently discovering Lexi’s pregnant only makes Lucca more possessive and attentive, especially as Lexi doesn’t have the easiest pregnancy. He’ll go far and beyond to care for her, worship her, and make her happy. But life won’t be simple. Another unravelling twist in the plot will define their future. Forever.

Life in Lucca’s Tuscan farmhouse will be challenging, testing Lexi, Lucca, and Grace while Michael hides from the police and special forces.

Uncertainty. Paranoia. Unwanted stress.

Not only will their lives be threatened, but their private life will be compromised as the ruthless press digs into Lexi and Grace’s past. After a shocking scandal is leaked, creating a worldwide frenzy, Lucca and Lexi are exposed and under intense scrutiny.

Lucca will do whatever it takes to respect his girl’s privacy and safeguard her heart. Lucca thinks he knows what’s best for Lexi, but a new revelation ignites a fire inside her he can’t control.

Tragedy and a broken heart gives Lexi new strength and a brand-new backbone. She must take the reins. Knowing what she needs to do, and demanding his support, she pushes him to his limits.

In an explosive and heart-stopping turn of events, you will be shocked beyond belief.

Can Lucca keep Lexi safe?

Will she fight and face her demons, or surrender to the darkness once more?

Only Lucca’s lust, love, and light will give her strength, but is it enough?

You think you’ve read it all … you haven’t.

Book Title: Concealed (Dark Alliance, #2)
Author: Kate SeRine
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 28, 2017

book blurb

As the only female initiate of the elite undercover society, the Dark Alliance, former FBI agent Madeleine Blake has a lot to prove—especially to her former lover, Alliance operative Jack Grayson. Ever since joining Jack’s team, Maddie’s been keeping her distance, trying not to relive every moment they shared during their brief but passionate affair. Yet when a mission ends in tragedy, Maddie’s ready to walk away from the Alliance—and Jack—forever. That is, until Jack’s cover is blown, putting his life in danger and making it impossible for Maddie to deny her true feelings…

Before he met Maddie, Jack Grayson thought happiness was impossible for a man like him. After all, he has a price on his head that requires him to live in the shadows, concealed from everyone and everything he cares about. But now that they’re on the run for their lives and Jack has Maddie in his arms again, he realizes their love is the only thing in his life that’s real. And this time, there’s no way in hell he’s letting it slip away…

excerpt

“You’re right. This is a bad idea.”

His brows came together. “Sorry?”

She opened her eyes at this and allowed her hands to smooth tenderly over his bare skin, over his shoulders, across his chest. “I want you, Jack,” she told him. “My God, I want you. But I don’t want to just fall back into bed with you. It’s far too easy to slide into our old pattern. It’s not fair to use you just to satisfy my libido.”

He caressed her cheek with the back of his fingers. “Really? That would be such a terrible thing?”

She shook her head. “No. It would be beautiful and thrilling and amazing—just like it was before. But, ultimately, heartbreaking. At least, that’s my fear. That seems to be our track record.”

“I can’t promise you that we’d live happily ever after, Maddie,” he admitted even as he realized that’s exactly what he wanted. He could easily picture them growing old together. And never once in his life had he thought of himself as a father, but when he looked at Maddie, he could imagine a future that included the kind of happiness he’d never dared to dream of. But that was his dream. He wasn’t sure if it was hers. And he sure as hell wasn’t going to allow himself to hope for anything beyond the moment.

As difficult as it was to leave the warmth of Maddie’s arms, Jack eased off of her and pulled on his shirt. He grabbed his laptop and turned back toward the bed to see Maddie still lying on her back, the heels of her palms pressed against her eyes. It pained him to leave her, but she clearly had reservations about going further, and he knew if he stayed, they’d be right back where they’d left off. And the thought of her regretting being with him was far more painful than the raging hard-on he was sporting.

He headed toward the bedroom door but paused. “I honestly don’t know what the future holds,” he told her. “But I know I will always want you, Maddie. Always.”

meet the author

Kate SeRine (pronounced “serene”) is a hopeless romantic who firmly believes in true love that lasts forever. So it’s no surprise that when she began writing her own stories, Kate vowed her characters would always have a happily ever after. She’s the author of the award-winning TRANSPLANTED TALES series, the PROTECT AND SERVE series, and the DARK ALLIANCE series.

Kate is a member of Romance Writers of America and of Indiana RWA and has been a finalist in the Fire and Ice Contest (2010), the Finally a Bride Contest (2010), and the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence (2013), and is the recipient of The Emily (2012) and the National Readers Choice Award (2012). She is represented by Nicole Resciniti with the Seymour Agency.

Kate lives in a smallish, quintessentially Midwestern town with her husband and two sons, who share her love of storytelling. She never tires of creating new worlds to share and is even now working on her next project–probably while consuming way too much coffee.
