Loving Lucianna


It took a long time for love to find Lucianna. So long, in fact, she wondered if it ever would. Not that she’s complaining. Life has been very good to her since leaving the convent with Elisabetta. They may not be sisters in blood, but they are sisters nonetheless, and Elisabetta can’t bear to part with her—no matter the circumstances of Lucianna’s birth.


At his age, Sir Balduin figures love has passed him by. His chosen path hasn’t afforded him a wife, so when Lucianna enters his life, he isn’t about to let what could be his last chance at love, get away. But when her brother, Serafino, appears, Balduin perceives something isn’t right. Especially when Lucianna suddenly threatens to break his heart forever.
