In Renaissance Italy, love, lust, intrigue and secret societies converge to stunning results!

In the second in the stunning Secrets of the Eternal Rose series, Cassandra Caravello is trying to forget Falco, the wild artist who ran off with her heart, as she grows closer to her strong, steady fiancé, Luca. But Luca seems to have his own secrets. When he’s arrested by soldiers in the middle of the night, Cass’s life is once again thrown into chaos. She must save Luca, and that means finding the Book of the Eternal Rose—the only evidence that will prove he’s innocent.

So begins her journey to Florence, a city haunted by whispers of vampirism, secret soirees and clandestine meetings of the Order of the Eternal Rose. And home to Falco, who is working for the Order’s eerily stunning leader, the Belladonna herself.

Can Cass trust her heart to lead her to the truth this time?

Nothing is as it seems in this seductive thriller, where the truth may be the deadliest poison of all.

The dark-haired man reached her side.  "Bella," he said, slightly out of breath.  His hand grazed her lower back.  "It is poor form to make a man chase after you, do you not know that?"
-- p. 127 of ARC

Ha, I think he means pure fun to give chase.  =)  Or is that just me?   ;0)  Just started this book yesterday, and it was slow at first, but it seems that things are about to get interesting.  :D

What are you teasing this week?  Share it in the comments or leave a link so we can visit!


  1. I loved this book! And I'm going to stay mum about everything else until you finish. lol

  2. Okay I see this is a book 2, so I need to check out the first one. It also looks like it has a love triangle? Which makes me wary! BUT I LOVE Renaissance Italy and the book in general sounds really exciting!! Is this YA?

    1. Yep, it's YA. I'm not a fan of the love triangle, mostly because I'm not a fan of one of the love interests AT ALL even though everyone is fangirling over him. I liked the first book, but it's not a favorite series...I'm mostly reading for the setting and the general mystery of it all.

  3. I can't wait to read Belladonna! The quote ties in well with Venom ;)
    Not a big fan of that cover change though *sigh*
    But hey, Florence and Falco. Can't go wrong with that ;)

  4. Great teaser! I love that he's chasing her. Great cover, too. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I think I like the sound of this... :) Thanks for sharing!
