Venetia Aston-Montague has escaped to Italy's most captivating city to work in her godmother's architect firm, putting a lost love behind her.
For the past ten years she has built a fortress around her heart, only to find the walls tumbling down one night of the carnival when she is rescued from masked assailants by an enigmatic stranger, Paolo Barone.
Drawn to the powerfully seductive Paolo, and despite warnings of his Don Juan reputation and rumours that he keeps a mistress, Venetia can't help being caught up in the smouldering passion that ignites between them.
When she finds herself assigned to a project at his magnificent home deep in the Tuscan countryside, Venetia not only faces a beautiful young rival but also a sinister count and dark forces in the shadows, determined to come between them.
Can Venetia trust that love will triumph, even over her own demons? Or will Paolo's carefully guarded, devastating secret tear them apart for ever?

Review by VanessaCW
I was attracted to the book by the gorgeous cover. Venice is my favourite city - it is the most fabulous and romantic place to visit. The tale is beautifully descriptive and the imagery is wonderful. I liked the style of writing.However, I thought the plot was implausible and the love story was too sugary for my tastes. There is a hint of intrigue but the end reveal I found unbelievable. I also thought it was a little drawn out and some of the characters could have been more developed.All in all, The Echoes of Love is a truly romantic, passionate and picturesque fairy tale which would appeal to those readers who enjoy pure escapism.My thanks to Netgalley for sending me a copy of the Ebook to read and review.
