A TAINTED BEAUTY
A TAINTED BEAUTY (4.5) by Sharon Kendrick: Lily Scott just lost everything — but her hope is rekindled when a knight in shining armor steps in to save the day. Ciro D’Angelo has just met the perfect woman — demure, funny, smart and innocent — and he wants her at any cost. But sometimes a knight’s armor is tarnished, as this couple finds on their wedding night when the blinders come off and they face the naked truth. Kendrick skillfully weaves a tangled web of angst, lust and love in a narrative that perfectly conveys the Naples climate. Brava!
