IN THE VENETIAN'S BED
Arrogant physician Luca Barbaro saves young Molly's life but earns the ire of her mother, Nell, in the process. The next time they encounter each other, attraction flares, and they drop their guards for an unforgettable night of passion. It's obvious their attraction goes well beyond that one night, but Nell has been burned by love before, and it will take Luca's patient and dedicated bedside manner to melt her defenses. Susan Stephens' In The Venetian's Bed (4) smartly weaves Luca and Nell's love story around the glamour of Venice while depicting some painful issues about Nell's past. Supporting characters add to the plot; Molly proves especially compelling.
