This was a reread for me and I loved it even more than I did the first time. Everything just worked for me in this story. The plot was good, the pacing was good, the writing was smooth, the dialogue was clever, and the setting was marvellous. I loved the details of the Venice setting and the ceremony of "marriage" to the sea. The glassmaking details were fun but not overwhelming.

Salvatore and Helena are at odds because she has inherited her dead husband Antonio's (Salvatore's father's cousin) s...more
I really liked this but I preferred them fighting over their playing nice. And I dont know where the "Dark Vengeance" part took place. Unless you count giving a woman multiple orgasms as punishment. If so I wish someone would pursue some "Dark Vengeance" towards me. lol

This story is a bit lacking in passion. It was a bit boring for me.
I liked both of them, normal and intellingent people. I like her not a doormat and he not a bully, they were really nice.
I found the plot not spontaneous though, they were acting strangely here and there for being people using their brains. And I didn't like the ending.

I loved her late husband. My favourite character of the story!
But I didn't understand the title. What was that Veretti's dark revenge?

I never thought I would write this in an HP review, but I wish the author had put more angst, revenge, and ruthlessness into the story. It could have helped heat up the pages a bit. This was a nice love story, but frankly a little boring. It felt like it was just one big date in Venice. Even the misunderstanding was watered down.

The positives are: the heroine was not TSTL or a doormat. In fact, she was brilliant in business, gorgeous, and could manipulate against the best of them! The hero was a...more
Different kind of romance from start to finish. Kept me interested from the first page.

I really enjoyed this story of a woman battling against male dominated Venetian society, trying to succeed in her inherited glass empire. There was a lot of open and also sexual conflict between the main characters that I loved. Well worth a read!
Very, very nice. I liked it. But the author needs work hard building the sex scenes because are very very simple.
