Jo has had enough of handsome men. After a painful break-up, she’s decided she doesn’t believe in love.
Then, while on a professional trip to the magical city of Rome, she meets Corrado, a scientist and her brother-in-law to be, who doesn’t believe in love either. To him, it’s just a biochemical reaction. So what’s the problem?
Well, he’s gorgeous for a start, as well as charming, generous, intelligent and attentive, and she feels herself immediately falling for him, despite her new outlook.
The majesty of the Eternal City brings them ever closer together. But is their relationship doomed, or will love conquer all?
What I Thought:
And with that, I have completed the set!
I make no secret of the fact that I love the ‘Dreaming Of…’ series by T. A. Williams but, up until now, I have read all but one. I corrected that this week by reading Dreaming of Rome.
Once again we travel to gorgeous Italy and are treated to a warm, romantic story and descriptions of the country that will make you wish we were still able to travel at the moment!
I don’t know how he does it, but T. A. Williams is a master at packing his books full of historical information, Italian culture, science and – on this occasion – lepidopterology but it never overwhelms the central story. In this case, in fact, it only proves that that couple in question are made for each other if only they could see it as clearly as we can.
I find myself more and more drawn to nice, romantic stories at the moment, and the ‘Dreaming Of…’ books are among the best around. I’ve already embarked on the first two of T. A. Williams’ next series (Escape to Tuscany) and I can’t wait to see which star-crossed couple he comes up with next!
Dreaming of Rome is published by Canelo.
