In Renaissance Italy, love, lust, intrigue and secret societies converge to stunning results!

In the second in the stunning Secrets of the Eternal Rose series, Cassandra Caravello is trying to forget Falco, the wild artist who ran off with her heart, as she grows closer to her strong, steady fiancé, Luca. But Luca seems to have his own secrets. When he’s arrested by soldiers in the middle of the night, Cass’s life is once again thrown into chaos. She must save Luca, and that means finding the Book of the Eternal Rose—the only evidence that will prove he’s innocent.

So begins her journey to Florence, a city haunted by whispers of vampirism, secret soirees and clandestine meetings of the Order of the Eternal Rose. And home to Falco, who is working for the Order’s eerily stunning leader, the Belladonna herself.

Can Cass trust her heart to lead her to the truth this time?
Nothing is as it seems in this seductive thriller, where the truth may be the deadliest poison of all.

I really want to like this, but I have issues with all those love triangles ): Hopefully it’ll be a fantastically well written book that’ll make me forget I hate them triangles haha.

Also, can we talk about the covers? I’m not a fan of the new cover changes for Venom and Belladonna, the originals were quite nice. For the Belladonna, I think my favourite is the gorgeous yellow version (as posted above). Thoughts? Favourites?
Anyway, only another week till it’s out!

  2. What’s crazy is that I literally just went on someone else’s WoW and it was this exact book, except with a different cover. It was the last blog I visited. Hope you enjoy it!
