Italo Italophiles
An entertaining, fantasy-filled, romantic suspense novel, with some racy love scenes, so, not for children. While racy, the scenes do not cross the line into pornographic, in my humble opinion. If you enjoy light, female protagonist, romantic suspense films, you should enjoy this novel.

Anne Marie, a forty-one-year-old U.S. American has been ditched by her husband for a much younger woman. To heal her feelings of abandonment and her damaged self-esteem, Anne Marie seeks out a high-school crush, a

This was a really cute story. I've always wanted to go to Italy and I swear this book made me want to sell everything I have to go! I could almost sense everything Anne Marie sensed on her vacation. I love that in the midst of everything that was happening, she still got to experience Italy and see things most tourists wouldn't. The book got a 4/5 from me for two reasons. Number one, I suspected the true culprits nearly from the start (though that could be because I'm such a naturally paranoid p ...more

Her Italian Millionaire was a cute read... it kept me on the edge of my seat right up until the end where it totally crashed and burned. Now personally I read books mostly because I'm obsessed with the romance aspect... You get this huge build up and they finally realize their feelings for each other and when those feelings come out... bam... the end. I was left unsatisfied. With that said, I would read the book again. Everything else about this book was great... it was thrilling, it was hot, cu ...more

Reading the back cover blurb was typically a bad idea, it caused me to place this book on the shelve for a year. Until recently a session of spring cleaning uncovered the book. Before giving it away, I decided to read the first two chapter. Good decision. I finished this book in two days. A lesson to book publishers 'write better blurbs'.

Ann Marie and Marco are two characters that are likable to the end. Carol Grace made Italy and Rome part of the must travel list. Toward the end I wish their wa

Although this story didn't have the most complex plot or characters, I enjoyed reading it. The romance had some nice touches and the red herrings in the plot kept me reading and guessing. The main characters were likeable and their relationship developed at a nice pace. This makes a satisfying summer vacation/beach read.
Dawn ♥ romance
Exciting story with plenty of action; it's like a fantasy vacation romance that ends in true love but I wish the characters didn't ruminate so much especially near the end. Anne Marie vacations in Italy avoiding ex-husbands remarriage and meets Marco who seems to be everywhere.

Amazing love story with a mystery in Italy!!! Loved the sexy hero Marco Moretti.:D The ending was short.Was expecting a more different ending where they get married with the entire family too.Anyway I enjoyed reading it.Hoping to get more books by this author Carol Grace.
Jed
I enjoyed it for what it was - a light romantic read. In these books, you always know that they are going to end up together, it's just how they go about it that's different.
Maria
I expected too much from this novel and I was a little disappointed. There was not enough thrill like how I expected it to be, but I guess the chemistry between Marco and Anne Marie covered that up.
Carol
Mystery and a Gorgeous Italian.... Should I say more? Well their was suspense and lust and a plot. Read it for what it is and enjoy.

A bit of mystery combined in this foreign love affair. Makes me want to go to Italy and eat gelato. ;) Good book by the way.:)

I'm on a weird reading binge. I'm looking for foreign travel that actually has a good story and is a travel log.

Recommends it for: lovers of Italy and Italians, especially middle-aged female lovers
Even divorced librarians can find amore. And I want to go and see Italy again, but, with a personal tour guide. ;)

Good story! I usually don't read romance novels, but this one was entertaining...and HOT!
