While taking different photo in different locations in Rome Lena notices a very hot sexy bodyguard that knows what he’s doing and eventually catches his eye.

I am really enjoying this series, and this story does not disappoint. There is great action and very intense at several points in the story. The characters are wonderful. I wasn't sure from the previous books whether or not I was going to like Sergio, but I ended up loving him. His acceptance of his fate was immediate and I believe that is because he is a wolf shifter. It follows with what we have learned about the different shifters in this world. The only point I didn't like was her changing i ...more

Tons of fun in this action-packed paranormal romance! Could have used a bit more depth but for a can’t-put-down page turner, this one is a sure a great way to spend the afternoon.

Fire Maidens: Rome is book three in the Billionaires & Bodyguards series and while it can be read as a standalone, I highly suggest you read all the books in the series in order. I personally feel like it makes the stories more enjoyable. This is Sergio and Lena's story! We first met Sergio in book two, Fire Maidens: London. I am super glad he has gotten his own happily ever after.

Lena has just relocated to Rome-somewhere she has always wanted to live. She does photography primarily for tourists and bridal parties to pay the bills. Hoping to one day have her work published, she has lots of spare time to photog

Fire Maidens: Rome is the third title in the Fire Maidens / Billionaires & Bodyguards series – and Sergio and Lena’s story has a few unique qualities to it that immediately captured my imagination.

If you’ve followed the series so far then you’ll recognize Sergio’s last name. It’s interesting to see him get a chance at redemption for his family’s actions and perhaps find his own place in this city he loves so much. Lena is starting over in Rome, a fresh start for a woman

Thank you for yet another wonderful story in this new series.
Loved Elena and Sergio. How they just knew, so early and then the journey to get there.
I will admit I cringed at Amber's character! I can't stand people like that but then they reap what they sew. :)
I liked the Guardians in this book, a better lot despite grievances from the past. I also enjoyed the little twists from the little extra side story that I already had. Folks, you will just need to read this, then that. It was so good!

When I am having trouble to decide on a genre or book to read – to get me back in the swing of it, I turn to a group of authors that I can always trust to bring me out of a rut, and Anna Lowe is on that list. This is the third book in this series, and it’s just as good, or even better than the first two. I read this book in a day, that’s how hard it was to put down. Our Fire Maiden in this is Lena, who has no idea of the shifter world or supernaturals, but you can see some of her abilities from ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This story really made me want to visit Rome. Sergio and Lena’s story starts off slow and builds but once it picked up its momentum, it was off to the races! You can’t help but feel for Sergio. He tries so hard to escape his past only to have it constantly confront him at seemingly every turn. Thankfully, Lena’s no wilting lily. She’s smart, strong, capable, and thoughtful. She has the ability to see past what others appear to be on the ...more

Fire Maidens:Rome was dramatic and old world mystery wrapped into one. This is the story that makes you want to keep reading and urging Sergio and Lena on towards a happy ever after. Immediately you have Lena who is compelled to be pleasant to the clients when all she really wants is to be free to express her talent. Sergio is the mystery to her, is he good or bad? He’s helping her with all of her new experiences. As Sergio and Lena traversed Rome and faced challenges and passions, you are along ...more

Lena felt Rome calling to her for years. Sergio the ex-solder returned to his homeland for redemption. Lena the photographer meets Sergio by chance and sparks fly. Great action and chemistry throughout kept me spellbound. Once again the Guardians tried to attract the Fire Maiden into the open with some unexpected twists. Good friends and old allies help save the day. I look forward to Marco getting his attitude adjustment and HEA. I read this using my KU subscription.

Sergio has returned to Rome for a job, at least he was able to return.

Lena had this desire to go to Rome. A crazy man was after her, saying she'll be his?? That was craziness. Her job ended, so to Rome it is. She was good at photography, it paid the bills. Bumping into a yummy man was a perk. Someone she can't stop fantasizing about. Destiny was about to play its hand for these two.

This book was very good. It was well written and very realistic. It had a couple of plot twists that I wasn't expecting. It is very easy to put yourself in the characters shoes and let the story take you away from reality for a while.

This was a really good story - it has a great balance of action, danger, seeing the sights of Rome, and romance! I really liked the main characters, and I enjoyed their path to HEA!

Loved this idea about Lena getting her powers at a later age and not knowing what was going on. Still not 100% sure why she was also able to become a wolf shifter, but I have my theories... and enjoyed the over protective male wolf.
Lena & Sergio

Rated 1-5 stars w/ 5 being the best

Overall: 4.5 Stars
Performance: 4 Stars
Story: 5 Stars

Another thoroughly enjoy listen! I loved that the action started right away with Lena dealing with her inner beast that definitely wanted out. Of course, our hero, Sergio, is there to lend a hand. I liked their interactions throughout the story as well. As usual, I enjoyed the side characters, especially Ariana and Dante.

Fire Maidens:Rome is book three in the Billionaires & Bodyguards series. This is about Lena and Sergio. We've met Sergio before and knew that he wasn't in good graces with the council. However, they've given him another chance to prove himself. Luckily or unluckily he's already fallen for the one person who could help him with the council but will she believe him when he tells her that he loved her before he needed her help or not.

Every book in this series so far has been amazing! Each story is unique, contains well-written characters and keeps you intently reading until the very end. Anna Lowe consistently writes wonderful books.
I was given an arc copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Book 3 of the series and I’ve fallen a little in love with Sergio! We first met him in Book 2 and for me, he was very much an uninteresting background character but he has certainly risen in my appreciation in this book. In book 2, he came across as shallow with too much interest in his appearance and belongings but in his love story with Lena, we learn why those things were so important to him and why his attitude to them chang

Fire Maidens Rome

Lena Castamolino is a professional photographer who was brought up in New York by her Italian mother. She didn’t know her father who disappeared before she was born and he is the reason that her mother left Italy. Her mother was so hurt and disillusioned that she never spoke Italian to Lena and told her that she should never trust a man. Consequently, Lena has never been able to allow herself to fall in love. But, despite all this, she has always wanted to live in Rome and being

Oh Anna Lowe, you completely blow my mind with your ability to weave such a wonderful tale from just a few ideas. The Fire Maiden series is an absolute gem, and Rome is simply another example of your expertise. With a simple phrase, a couple of words thrown together, the odd foreign exclamation, you manage to transport us to another world, one that some may have experienced firsthand, but that the rest of us can only imagine. I absolutely love the way you bring the world, one piece at a time, to ...more

USA Today and Amazon best-selling author Anna Lowe loves putting the "hero" back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She likes a heroine who is independent, intelligent, and imperfect — a woman who's doing just fine on her own. But give the heroine a good man (not to mention a chance to overcome her own inhibitions) and she'll never turn down the chance for adventure, no ...more
