I will start this review off by saying that I am a huge fan of Bertrice Small albeit a recent one I first read a Dangerous Love back in 2010 and have been stuck since Bertrice's books are memorable to say the leastOrianna Pietro D'Angelo carefully plotted each of her daughter's lives especially their marriages The wife a Milanese silk merchant only wanted the best of marriages for her beautiful offspring but sometimes the meddlesome Orianna didn't know what was best for her daughters When Lucianna went easily into her marriage to wealthy bookseller Alfredo Allibatore she actually had it easy at first Alfredo was old enough to be her grandfather and their relationship was friendship and mutual respect than marriage Lucianna emjoyed her work in her husband's book shop and was content with her life even remaining untouched After three years of marriage in name only Alfredo passed away leaving nineteen year old Lucianna a wealthy widow and once again on the marriage market to fulfill Orianna's whim Lucianna has no intention of marrying again She did her duty by her parents and now she is in a position where she doesn't need a husband Enter Robert Minton the Earl of Lisle a handsome Englishman who is close confidant of the English King Sparks fly when Minton meets Lucianna but she is in complete denialWhen Orianna and her husband see the budding attraction they send Lucianna to England as a representative of the silk merchants of Milan as a conspiracy to push Lucianna into marriage with the Earl Once in England Lucianna must deal with the difference between both cultures the Earl desperately wanting to be involved with the beauty when she is has no intention of falling into his arms and outside forces that would have Robert and Lucianna not be togetherLucianna by Bertrice Small is great read It brought me back to my love for the author after I finished the Border Chronicles Lucianna is the third book in the Silk Merchants Daughters series but the first I delved into and once I finished Lucianna I happily went back to the first two books Bianca and Francesca Ms Small just has a way of making you feel that you are part of the story ans Renaissance Italy just came alive for me along with the restrictive attitudes towards women and the irony of it all I recommend highly this series to lovers of historical romance and eagerly await the next in the series SerenaKIMBERLY
