THREE new reads for this week!
The Gardener’s Sins
The daughter of an earl, Lady Mary Linden never noticed the servants who toiled on her father’s estate. But her aristocratic blindness shatters when she meets Drake, the head gardener. Drake shows her sensuous delights she could not have dreamed of. Just when she thinks he has taught her all there is to know, Drake introduces a new player into their game…Mary’s cousin Harry.
What they did was surely a sin…but a sin too delicious to give up.

Just South of Rome
An enchanting novella by Australia’s master storyteller, Judy Nunn. Also features an extract from Judy’s new bestseller Elianne.When Australian actress Jane Prescott is offered a job in England, she sees it as a chance to ignite her career. Little does she know that it’s her stopover in Italy en route that will change her life.For just south of Rome, she discovers…The Hotel Visconti, a grand eighteenth-century villa…A colourfully flamboyant host…A lively party of American tourists…Glamorous locals who gather nightly in the cocktail bar…An Italian lover who looks uncannily like Ryan Gosling… What could go wrong?
Always great to disappear into a Judy Nunn book and Just South of Rome was no exception.
At times the dialogue felt a tad stiff but Nunn’s ability to describe feelings, location and finer details is as exquisite as ever.
A nice short read that had me craving another Nunn book.
