Publisher's Summary

They say there are three things you should do at least once in your life:

Dance like nobody’s watching.
Travel the world.
And fall hopelessly in love.

I aimed to do all three.

I went to Italy to find myself.
But he found me.

It was like a story book. Our eyes met across a crowded room. He asked me if I needed help reading the menu. We ate, we laughed, we danced, and I fell. Unfortunately, things didn’t go to plan, and we parted ways.

Two years later, our eyes meet across a room again.
Only this time I was on a date with another man.
He went crazy in a jealous fit.

But the man I met then is different now.
He’s colder, harder, and officially one of the most powerful men in Italy.
Dare I say it, even more enticing.

But if you dance with the devil, you get burnt.

And the fires in Italy are scalding hot.

Well done TL Swan

Loved this narration and the narrators did a great job - not easy doing an Australian accent without making it stand out as all “stryney” in amongst all the other accents.
Great story and great evolution of the characters within - and thank you for not making it predictable.
Once again a brilliant book by TL Swan - never stop doing what you do so well!

Love it!! Tee is first class!!

Another amazing book from TL Swan!! I love Emma Wilder - she is so very talented, but felt her Aussie accent was too subtle. First time listening to Dane Anderson… and wow… he was phenomenal with all the accents and language.

The story itself was great. There were a number of events I felt I knew how they would play out, but I was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong and that the story wasn’t predictable! Thanks for the plot twists Tee (and the short cameo of Gabe).

Thank you to all involved for bringing this book to life!! I can’t wait for another TL Swan book!

The best

I must admit I was reluctant to even buy this book, thinking it would just be another billionaire romance story, but omg it was so much mooooree!!! This quite quickly turned into a new favorite book for me, the narrators were amazing, even the dodgy Australian accent was easy to get over (I’m Aussie) but I 10/10 recommend this book, was just awesome!! I didn’t want it too end

What an exciting storyline

Phew ….. a little bit exhausted from all that drama. Emma struggled a bit with the Australian accent especially at the beginning. But it didn’t take away from the story. The sex scenes were raunchy and very explicit. The background scenes were inspiring. Well done.

I loved the story was a duet!

I really struggled hearing a Kiwi trying to be Australian. Olivia’s character was a bit painful at times and a bit whinny. I understand the author wanted the character to be rebellious and true to herself but it became a bit predictable knowing she was going to going to defy him. Sometimes I felt she just needed to shut her mouth. The character of Ricci however, was a standout and played beautifully. The spice was OMG grrrr perfect. I would definitely read another book from this author.

annoying

the female character is winey and annoyingly stupid,
the storyline was ok, but the female character really spoiled the storyline her ignorance is annoying, and her whispy voice is inauthentic, I have listened to other books by this author and they were really good, this one was disappointing.

Good story but accent was distracting

As an Aussie I did struggle with the kiwi accent of the Australian in this story.

Disappointed

I found the heroine to be the “blond cliche” - dumb, big boobed and no depth. I can assure the author, Australian women would not tolerate this controlling behaviour by the hero.
I thought the plot was flawed and disappointing- as if a police office would not know his father was the head of crime where he policed, particularly, if the heroine can do a simple google search and find it out. It went downhill from there.
