An explosive yearning that can't be denied

Disturbing visions from an ancient past

A mysterious stranger that somehow feels familiar

On the night of her fiftieth birthday, the comfortable ride of Toscana's life takes an alarming plunge. Haunted by seductive visions, she tries to push aside the desire and focus on the husband who adores her. Then she falls for Flynn, a younger man with an eye for adventure and a heart full of romance, who leaves her doubting everything she's believed about love and passion.

In Atlanta, Rome, and the lush scenery of Tuscany, Toscana searches for answers to the mysteries of her life while she faces her biggest question. If she listens to her feelings will she lose everything she holds dear, or does her heart hold the key to love and joy?

About the Author:

Nanette Littlestone never knew she wanted to be a writer until she was over 40. But once she began, the ideas didn't stop. Her fascination with relationships, history, and the spiritual path has opened her writing to women's fiction, historical fiction, and inspirational nonfiction.

A native Californian, Nanette lives in Atlanta, GA, far from the beach (which she loves) but a place that's warm with spectacular scenery. On the professional side, she helps entrepreneurial women write and get published, and she continues to grow her vision for F.A.I.T.H. On the fun side, she takes walks with her husband, cooks, plays with graphic design, and makes origami butterflies. She loves to travel, but she's waiting for the teleportation machine to whisk her off to Greece or Asia. In the meantime, she's happy with dark chocolate and romantic movies that make her cry.

My Take on the Book:

This was a wonderful book to read; and though there were times when I didn’t agree with the main character, Toscana Blake; I am glad that she found a happy medium in her life at the end, though I would have loved to know what had happened after the book ended. One character that I most certainly wouldn’t have minded to get to know a little bit more about, is Suzanne Moyes, I was quite intrigued by what she did as a career. Another character that I ended up liking was Toscana’s husband, Jackson.

I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:

I thought that this book had a very nice mix of genres for me.
