Recommended for mature readers due to strong language and explicit sexual situations.

I never believed in fate. That was something for the dreamers, the romantics, not someone as practical and pragmatic as I.

Fate had nothing to do with me walking in on my soon-to-be husband in a compromising position with his secretary.

When a book renders you completely speechless with your mouth left open in complete shock, how in the world can you sum it up more than that?

Inferno captured me from the beginning and took me on a ride of passion, a journey of a woman's newfound freedom from the chains that had been holding her captive all her life, experiences of a lifetime and a moment to shock every single reader, begging for more.

One of my favorites by far.

The flames are too hot to bare if you are to become consumed wholeheartedly. A novel that encompasses your mind, your realm of fantasy. TK Leigh gripped me, pulled me towards the heat of her first part of Inferno.

Be prepared for TK to bring the heat in this new endeavor, within Inferno. She will make you blush a little redder and fluster faster with her intense writing skills and she doesn't hold back which has always led me to be a

Inferno. The perfect name for this hot, intense book. Ladies, get your fans out because trust me, you'll need them. Once I started reading the first line of Inferno, I couldn't stop. I devoured this book, needing more of it. It's honestly that good.

Inferno tells us the story about Ellie, who is trapped in a life that is basically going nowhere. Her love life was ruined. She felt like she was just going through the motions of day-to-day living, basically just existing. It isn't until her best fr

Not only did we get a story that had GREAT characters, but we got a read tog et completely lost in.

This book was AMAZING!!! It drew me in from the beginning, and kept my toes curling with how sexy Dante is. Dante and Ellie were perfect together. He brought her out of her shell, and showed her what a beautiful fun woman she is. And OMG. That ending!! Even when you know something major is coming, and have an idea what it might be, it’s still freaking shocking!! To say I can’t wait for the next book is a major understatement. I would definitely recommend this!!!

Holy hotness and its 5 burning stars! L-o-v-e this book! Even though it is short and a part of anthology, it hooked me from the first page till the end. Yeah, T.K. knows how to do that so well... I can't wait for the continues of this story because Dante - oh Dante - I need more of this man.

After running from her own wedding, and her own miserable life, Ellie wants a change. She wants to burry her old self and start over. She meets Dante - a super hot, successful Italian man w

T.K. is one of my go to authors and this story just proves why I can't stop myself from immediately devouring whatever she releases.

Inferno is an intriguing story, to say the least. A beautiful woman who has been trapped and controlled her entire life, finally breaking free of the suffocating restraints. Meeting an enigmatic man who makes her feel things she's never felt before.

The chemistry and passion between Dante and Eleanor is off the charts. T.K. does an incredible job of building up the

Wow!! Not only was this story steaming hot, it was sensual. Eleanor meets the hot Italian known as Dante in a plane headed to Italy. She has abandoned her so called life, where she was totally controlled by her parents and her so called finance whom she caught cheating, and spontaneously boards a plan abroad. Good bye to the old Ellie.

Dante strikes up a conversation with her that leaves a lasting impression on Ellie. Swoon! After landing, she doesn’t expect to see him ever again but fate interv

This is Part One to what looks like a four part novella series from T.K. Leigh. I will tell you to go ahead and expect a cliffhanger.

"I received the ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Wow! This story completely blew me away! I got swept up into it and I just couldn’t let go of the ride. It was incredible! Dante Luciano is by far one of the hottest, sexiest men I’ve met in a book. It heats me up just of thinking of him. The way he speaks is so eloquent. I’m in love with him myself. And that cliffhanger on the end was so unexpected! I certainly didn’t see that coming.

Do you believe in fate? Eleanor does not. Not until she leaves her fiance at the alter and boards a flight to Rome, Italy. Now, she is questioning whether meeting Dante is just coincidence, or fate itself. As she discovers her true identity, having her life scripted by her parents up to this point, Dante helps her explore her sexuality. Rome was never on my bucket list, but for some reason...I now have a desire to see it.

A short, but extremely HOT, read! T.K. Leigh is the master of writing chara

Holy Inferno! I’m still feeling the steam from this one! By far one of my favorites! Dante and Ellie, holy moly no water can put that fire out! I started Inferno and could not put it down- it pulled me in line,hook and sinker from the get go.....

I was so pulled into this story! A really in depth storyline that has me anxiously awaiting the next part of the story! I love the discussion of fate and how the woman slowly changes her view on it. And a man believing in fate? Hot! To me, the two main characters are soulmates - I am not sure if that is what the author intended, but it is how I feel! And having sight seeing in Italy thrown in was a bonus! And that cliffhanger?! Did not see that coming! lol

Elle ran out before she was supposed to get married and decided to go to Italy. On the plane she meets Dante. He treats her better then her finance ever did. This is a great start to a story I can’t wait to read the second part.

This novella is the introduction of Eleanor and Dante.  Fate really does step in with these two.  Their chemistry is off the charts, white hot! Dante is full on alpha swooniness and Eleanor is a breath of fresh air, I love how she is embracing the new her and shaking off the shackles of her old life! She comes out of her shell beautifully.

Wow!!! T.K. has always loved her cliffhangers and she leaves us truly hanging in this one. Inferno is amazingly written with all the excitement that's expected.

Ellie is looking for the perfect getaway to rediscover herself and get away from her normal pre-planned life. She's always done exactly what's expected of her and quickly discovers that Rome is the perfect place to discover the new Ellie, especially once she meets Dante the final few minutes of her plane ride.

This novella captivated me from the beginning. Inferno part 1, the first part of a multi-part story, has everything I look for in a quick read: quick character development and early love scenes. Some novellas I have read skimped on the character development for the sake of the story but for me, the character development is as equally important as the story.

Wow! Holy Hotness! When T.K. Leigh puts pen to paper you can expect nothing but heat and greatness. Inferno incorporates all that and then some!

Fate is the key to everything as far as Dante is concerned and Elle is not having it. She is just looking for some freedom, some space and a chance to finally breathe. She just needed an escape.

Dante is hot, fun and sexy. He believes fate has drawn he and Elle together and he is on a mission to prove that!
