An emotional erotic heart-wrenching story of lust, love and light
Alexis Evangeline Robertson is young, insecure and daunted with painful memories from her dark, tortured childhood. She has rules, and she has boundaries.
She never lets anyone too close.
Lucca Caruso has the most mesmerizing crystal azure blue eyes and a heart of gold. When Lexi meets this Italian God, she doesn’t expect to see him again.
But fate intervenes.
While on vacation at a Villa in Val D’Orcia, near the Chianti hills outside of Florence, she is more than surprised to see Lucca arrive at the very same villa. Lexi begins a journey of self-discovery, helplessly folding, melting and crumbling to the temptation of her heart’s desire.
After the desires of lust …
And the sweetness of love …
Lexi will spread her wings towards the light …
This is the story of one girl’s destiny to find her light from her sinister, dark and harrowing past and the one man who can take her there.
When I saw your eyes filled with dread and fear, my heart nearly stopped, I thought I would lose you, I need you and want nothing more, please trust me Doc, I ….I love you, I love you Dolcezza”.
He claims my mouth with profound longing and as soon as our lips meet the chemistry and energy ignites a burning desire deep in my soul and heart. My body submits to him with his sensitive words.
I’ve folded yet again!
Another tidal wave of water is flooding from my eyes cascading down my cheeks, he has me…
“You love me?” my voice is breaking, my eyes weeping.
“Yes, I love you, I’m very much in love with you. You are mine forever and my something special baby”
My body and mind become weak. I stare into his wide wet azure blue eyes,
“Lucca I…….I don’t know what to say”.
“Then don’t, write it in your journal”.
With these words we melt into each other, passionately kissing in a tight embrace filled with love and traces of uncertain fear.

About the Author
SJ Molloy, first time British Author of ‘The Luminara Series’ was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a young child, her family moved and raised her in Lanarkshire, Scotland where she currently resides with her husband, two daughters and her energetic, hyperactive loving gun dog who is utterly spoiled.
SJ is a qualified Fitness Instructor and Health & Fitness Motivator of various fitness styles and disciplines. Music and dance aerobics have always been a pleasure and passion for her. SJ will sporadically make up dance style routines at any hour of the day when a move comes to her or piece of music moves or inspires her. Currently not teaching classes she is focusing her time into nurturing her yearning passion for creative writing, exchanging one visualisation for another.
As a child, SJ loved to write in journals and make up short stories and has a flare for all things creative. With an overactive imagination at times, SJ adores to make notes, visualise scenes and settings to create characterisations.
While on holiday with her family one summer reading book after book, she had a flash of inspiration and has had various ideas whirling around in her mind ever since. It was not until she pulled back on teaching classes that she found the courage, time and insight into actually bringing these ideas to life.
In February 2013 she decided to bring that imagination to light by beginning her writing journey with ‘Lussuria’ the first instalment in ‘The Luminara Series’ available from late October 2013.
Being a self-confessed book junkie, she loves nothing better than to get lost in an emotional and moving book. A true romantic at heart, her guilty pleasure is reading heart-warming, passionate stories and falling in love with her favourite fictional characters.
With five books already mapped out in ‘The Luminara Series’, SJ’s busy creative mind has already planned two more fictitious novels, both stand-alone romance books and very different in their own right.
When she is not writing or reading, spending time with family and friends or exercising and walking her dog, SJ loves all things practical and creative. Dancing, music, cooking, travelling, good food and wine and painting are her favourite past times along with laughter, lots and lots of laughter.

Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar on a book – always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape her world for a while and see through someone else’s eyes.
Besides reading, her favorite ‘thing’ is traveling – she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby – Scrapbooking – keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.
Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness – arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).
Readers who are down and out about their trashed investment portfolios can pick up a copy of MARKET FOR LOVE and forget all about the economic downturn. Read the book, and have a little fun peeking inside the unseen world of the sexy young investment bankers who’ve been pushed to the edge along with everyone else.

This book is unique and draws the reader in from page 1. I found myself fighting sleep just so I could find out how what was going to happen next. With great characters and an intense plot that had me eager to find out what was happening next, it was a great read and I enjoyed it.
Max and Miranda have an instant chemistry that you can feel from their first meeting. Max is sexy, persistent, and very used to getting his way. At first Miranda is very prim and a bit boring but she changes and comes out of her shell more as the story progresses. I really enjoyed them and drawn in and eager to keep ready so I could find out how they faired.
With well written characters and a unique and intriguing plot line, I was instantly hooked. The world of finance and stocks (which I normally don’t care for at all) was easy to read about and blended well with the romance and hot steamy scenes to make a well rounded story. There’s even a bit of mystery. Great story and I’m giving this a 4 out of 5 books!

At one point I see her eyeing the tattoo on my forearm and before I know it her fingers graze over the italic words and the jagged, raised scar that underlines them as she reads aloud to herself. “Vulneratus non victus. What does it mean?”I begin to tell her about the time when a roadside IED hit the Humvee in front of mine. My left arm had been hanging out the window and a piece of shrapnel tore into it. I had a four inch gash that had required forty-two stitches, but other than that I’d been fine.“It’s Latin for ‘wounded, but not conquered.’ We were fortunate to have not had any bad injuries, so when we got back the guys and I all went and got this tattoo to commemorate that those bastards tried, but failed.”She pales slightly at the mention of my injury, no matter how minor, so I wrack my brain trying to find a way to change the conversation into something much lighter, even though her fingers trailing over the words on my arm are making my skin tingle, bringing all kinds of erotic thoughts to mind.

Title: Falling for my Husband
Series: British Billionaires, #1
Author: Pamela Ann
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance (18+)
British badboy billionaire, Callum Kensington’s best friend was dying. Richard von Berg’s last wish was for Callum to take care and marry his sister to protect her from money-grabbing men. Willingly, Callum agreed to marry secretly and become Stella’s conservator until she was at the age of twenty-six.
Heiress Stella von Berg moved to London and started her new life at the age of twenty-one. For years, she harbored a crush on Callum, but he kept his distance and treated her like a child. For three years, she and her fake husband see each other once or twice a year.
He lived his life and she did hers.
But when his family started to demand Callum take a wife, he had no choice but to present Stella as his scapegoat.
After a week together in his family estate, will Callum see his wife in a different light?
This was a new twist on love an marriage. It was creative and interesting to watch them navigate their lives with marriage but not really knowing each other until years after. Callum and Stella were well written characters with heart, feeling, and depth.
Callum is your typical hot billionaire playboy. He has issues with love due to being burned when he was younger, but Stella manages to calm him in some ways. There were times that I wanted to shake him and even Stella for some of their decisions but I also think that those actions made the story more realistic. There is plenty of steamy scenes between these two as well which never hurts.
Between the well written characters and the great plot this book is bound to draw you in. I really enjoyed this unique story and hope to read more about other characters from the series in the future. I’m giving this a 4 out of 5 books.
