COUNT VALIERI'S PRISONER
COUNT VALIERI’S PRISONER (4.5) by Sara Craven: Lured by a choice documentary assignment in Italy, Madeleine Lang unknowingly steps into a trap, kidnapped by a mysterious, enigmatic man and kept in a lush prison. Andrea, Count Valieri, seeks atonement for a crime committed long ago. His unfortunate victim may be innocent, but he’s willing to sacrifice her for the greater good, and to sacrifice his growing feelings for her, too — or so he thinks at first. Craven turns an unseemly situation into a beautiful romance with a gothic twist. Her narrative paints breathtaking scenes and tells a spellbinding tale of deception, revenge and retribution. Brava!
