What a pleasant surprise “Italian Stallions” was. This book contains two connected stories by two different authors. Each story has a different ‘feel’ to it, but I must confess Jami Alden’s story had me teary-eyed.
“In His Bed” by Karin Tabke. Gianna just buried her father and her mother disappeared years ago. When she’s approached by a slimy ganster to ‘settle her father’s debts’, she scared and pissed. Her cousin insists she needs attitude…and to dump her ‘Madonna’ nickname and image. Gianna goes a bit further than she or her cousin intended!
Gabriel is working undercover. When Gianna becomes tangled up in his investigation, he just can’t quite manage to keep his hands, or mouth, off her.
“Will That Be All?” by Jami Alden. Theresa has come home. She finally wised up and left her drug-addicted, abusive boyfriend in New York. Now she’s determined to turn her life around and regain the respect she lost for herself. When a gorgeous gazillionaire hires her to be his dog nanny, she’s determined to fight their attraction with all her might. Because he could never forgive the things she did to survive in NY…could he?
This is probably the best Aphrodisia book I’ve read. Both stories, but especially Alden’s, have meaning beyond ‘insert tab A in slot B’. Definitely worth the read.
