The Secrets of Villa Rosso

 

The Secrets of Villa Rosso

by Linn B. Halton

 

Synopsis: 

Some places stay with you forever…

When Ellie Maddison is sent on a business trip to Southern Italy, she’s reminded why she loves her job – set amongst rolling vineyards and rich olive groves, the beautiful Villa Rosso is the perfect escape from her life back home. But what Ellie isn’t prepared for is the instant connection she feels to the estate’s director Max Jackson, or the secrets they share that are as intertwined as the rambling vines that cover Villa Rosso.

It’s not long before Ellie finds herself entangled in the history of the place, trying to understand the undeniable effect Max is having on her. As their relationship grows, what will Ellie discover about this idyllic villa and those who have walked through its doors?

What started as a simple work trip will change Ellie’s life forever.

 


Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Sometimes you just know when a book is going to be magical, and the Secrets of Villa Rosso was just that! It was a story about love, romance, soulmates with a bit of spiritual/psychic elements sprinkled in.

Ellie is a mother and wife, and she relishes in those roles. As her children get older, she returns to work and is getting to know that other side of herself again. When she is sent on a business trip to Southern Italy, she is enjoying being on her own again. When she meets Max Jackson, the connection between them is undeniable. Before you think she becomes a cliche and cheats, think again. The connection these two share is deep and emotional and was not what I was anticipating.

Be prepared to be completely caught up in an emotional tale. Halton reminded me of what it felt like to fall in love with my own soulmate, my husband. She also made me feel how blessed I am. The book will bring tears to your eyes, but it will also bring a smile to your face as well.

An important part of a book for me is the setting, and what a magical place Castrovillari was. It was beautiful, and I felt like I was there. When I feel like I’m in a setting with the characters, I know the book has captured me entirely, and I was completely mesmerized by this book. I love when I find a new author, and I am so excited to read more by Linn B. Halton.

About LISTEN PITCH

Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.

He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.

By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.

Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.

The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.

One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.

But then two pink lines change everything, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.

About the GAME OF HEARTS series

Sometimes love is more than just a game…

Starting with Love Always, check out this dramatically heartwarming, steamy series. Set sail with Maggie, as she steers Phillip into the open waters of freedom. In Runaway Heart you can skate along with Hannah as she makes her way into the Olympic roller derby team and knocks Ed right off his feet. Then come hang out at the Raven’s Den with Charlotte in When Two Hearts Collide. She’s brewing up more than just coffee with Charlie, and it’s sure to be stronger than anything he’s ever had before.

Love Always: Sometimes you have to lose it all to find yourself.
Maggie is a fisherman’s daughter with a big heart and a thirst for adventure.
Phillip is the son of a business mogul who walks the straight and narrow. But after a shared night of beer, skinny-dipping, and late-night dancing, an unbreakable bond is formed that can withstand anything. Or can it?

Runaway Heart: One hurricane. Two Strangers. No rules.

Stranded on a tropical island during a hurricane, Hannah and Ed are forced to ride out the storm together. Neither realizing how much of a storm they’ve brewed up between them until they return home. There’s one problem though. An ocean separates them. That is, until fate throws them a second chance. A chance that could either bring them together, or forever tear them apart.

When Two Hearts Collide: Love knows no boundaries when two hearts collide.

Charlie isn’t the settling down kind. In fact, he’s having too much fun being footloose and fancy-free. That is, until he’s given a tempting offer he can’t refuse. A vacation in The Hampton’s. A chance to see Charlotte again after putting the brakes on what could have been one of the best nights of his life. The thought of seeing Charlie again terrifies and excites Charlotte. Try as she might, she hasn’t been able to forget him. Things heat up with Charlie’s arrival. But shared chemistry isn’t always enough to build a forever kind of love, or is it?

“Sometimes, I feel like I’m watching a movie . . . that it’s not really me, Claire Richards, getting this second chance at life.”

“Open your eyes, it’s you, and I’m damn glad it’s with me.” ~ Aiken

Single mom and college professor Claire Richards only wanted a few hours of me time to soak in her tub, read a book, and drink wine.

But tragedy struck, and Claire found herself with a lot more me time than she bargained for.

Three years later, Claire is still mourning her losses when Aiken Fordham—who looks young enough to be one of her college students—moves in next door.

Forcing Claire to face her fears, Aiken almost forgets his reason for moving to Small Town, Pennsylvania. Falling for the sexy, smart, and strong professor next door was never in the plan.

But now it is . . . until their future intersects with their pasts.

About Rachel:

Rachel Blaufeld is a bestselling author of Romantic Suspense, New Adult, Coming-of-Age Romance, and Sports Romance. A recent poll of her readers described her as insightful, generous, articulate, and spunky. Originally a social worker, Rachel creates broken yet redeeming characters. She’s been known to turn up the angst like cranking up the heat in the dead of winter.

A devout coffee drinker and doughnut eater, Rachel spends way too many hours in local coffee shops, downing the aforementioned goodies while she plots her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end as lusciously as her treats.

As a side note, Blaufeld, also a long-time blogger and an advocate of woman-run anything, is fearless about sharing her opinion. She captured the ears of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and running a business, often at the same time. To her, work/life/family balance is an urban legend, but she does her best.

Rachel has also blogged for The Huffington Post and Modern Mom. Most recently, her insights can be found in USA TODAY, where she shares conversations at “In Bed with a Romance Author” and reading recommendations over at “Happy Ever After.”

Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two beagles. Her obsessions include running, coffee, basketball, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.

When she isn’t writing, she can be found courtside, tweeting about hoops as her son plays, or walking around the house wearing earplugs while her other son, the drummer, bangs away.

***This book contains content intended for mature readers***
ADAM
After months of keeping our secret, Bella and I were sure we’d find a way to stay together, to keep our romance from taking us down.
We’d been so careful, taken every measure, every failsafe option there was to stay under the radar.
My cousin, the rightful heir to the Avery fortune, found out anyway.
Now? He’s out for blood.
I swore I’d keep her safe, promised I’d do whatever it takes to make sure this side of my life never touched her.
I had no idea that promise would be so impossible to keep.
I’ve already failed her once.
I’d be damned if I do it again.
ISABELLA
I still can’t believe how quickly I fell for Adam.
We spent our first two months in a whirlwind, keeping our secret from the world until one day, it spilled to the masses.
We faced losing everything.
My career, my reputation, my freedom…
I’d risk it all to keep him.
The problem with that is that he would, too and he had more to lose than anyone I’d ever known.
He asked for my trust, earned it plenty of times over, but how far would he go to keep me?
Am I destined to be the reason his empire comes crashing down?
Or would we somehow find redemption?
