Only Lexie seems the most unlikely terrorist Dominic has ever met. Sweet, determined, and direct, she faces life with courage and fire, a fire that sparks his protective instincts and a longing for something more—something he allowed himself to hope for only. Excerpt: Lexie had started to run to him when someone grabbed her arm, pulling her around.
A man, his face hidden by a ski mask, held tightly to her. Her shock ratcheted to fear.
The dim light from the balcony above illuminated his flat black eyes. She had seen those eyes before.

Holy shit. She was in trouble. The masked man grabbed for her purse. He staggered back, swearing, and slipped and fell. Lights and freedom beckoned from the nearby Via Corsi, but all Lexie could think about was Dominic. Turning on her heels, she ran to him, slipping on the ancient stones herself as Dominic struggled to stand. But before she could reach him, the mugger caught up with her and grabbed her shoulder, twisting her around.
Dominic sprang up and flew at the mugger, knocking him to the ground. The two men grappled, rolling together on the cobbled street. Lexie, her heart thumping wildly, looked for an opening to bean the mugger again, to give Dominic a better chance at overcoming him. Share this: Twitter Facebook.

Lexi and Dominic helped each other beat their pasts. It was probably a combination of things.
The story allows the reader to know about the diamond and why everyone including the crooks are chasing Lexi so having all the knowledge up front made the story lose some edge. The adventure was still there, but not the twisty suspense or a build up of tension. I would have liked it more if I had been as clueless as Lexi as to why everyone was attacking her or ransacking her room or running her off the road. Then there was the fact that Lexi was pretty naive.
I get the whole embrace a new life and have adventures, but safety first. She goes out with him which was daring, but it was a public place so no biggie, but its what came afterward.

It was distracting and left me not very pleased with the character of Lexi. Dominic was a bit easier to embrace in that he is the brooding, conflicted hero coming to the rescue and loving Lexi. I would recommend this for someone who is looking for a light only slightly spicy Romantic Suspense. Oh I love a broody conflicted hero. I do want to shake them sometimes when they risk themselves like that. It was a light-weight suspense, but still fun. We stayed at a hotel on the Via Corsi in Rome, and we ate lots of gelato. Kiwi melon was my favorite, as it's Lexie's favorite.
I tried to phonetically spell Madonna the way my grandmothers said the word with their Abruzzo dialect. I may not have been successful. Thanks again for reading and reviewing my book.

Grazie e tante belle cose, Candida. Murder, Mi Amore , a romantic suspense novel, begins with the protagonist, Lexie, an Italian-American woman, who is shopping in Rome, Italy. We learn that Lexie:. Not since she'd come to Rome. And now she had a new handbag to go with her new attitude. In the past two weeks, the cautious and always-do-what's-right-eager-to-please-everyone Lexie Cortese had become a confident, take-charge woman. For all of her twenty-eight years she'd done what others wanted--her parents, her teachers, that louse Jerry. But no more. Lexie makes her wishes here, and meets her mystery-man here.
In the first few pages, the new Lexie meets a "Mr. GQ Cover Model" with oodles of charm and an Italian accent that works like foreplay. This modern romantic-suspense novel, which I received as a review-copy, features the obligatory two hot twenty-somethings.
