There’s nothing like rediscovering “the one that got away,” even if it does take five hundred years…

Luca Dell’Oro has developed an unusual but successful event planning business. His specialty is Italian Weddings and Funerals, which is also the name of his highly sought-after Mendocino, California, business. He accepts an unusual assignment to fly to Rome, Italy, to cater a funeral for an Italian opera singer. Nothing goes right, however, from the minute he accepts the assignment. Cookware goes missing, and his most trusted employees mysteriously can’t go with him, leaving Luca with a motley crew for a staff.

Luca is stunned to discover that the grieving widower is a man he met and lost to the deceased woman—in sixteenth century Italy. Luca has good reasons for still being around. He’s a vampire, and all his recipes and magical ingredients have been carefully cultivated over the years. But just who the hell—or what the hell—is Franco Savelli? And does he want Luca for romance—or to kill him?

My View:

This is short, sweet and quirky.

Imagine living to the grand old age of 500 and rediscovering your first love. Luca is an ancient and sometimes grumpy 500 year old vampire that has found his niche in life. He organises weddings and funerals with an Italian theme and has had great success.

As he is wrapping up one job that didn’t go quite the way anyone expected he receives an offer from Italy and his life is suddenly turned upside down when he realises his past has come back to haunt him.
His one true love left him for a woman centuries ago and he never really recovered. He has been with many men since then but no one has ever come close to coveting his heart but the hurt he still feels over how he was betrayed makes him wary.

This is a ‘make you smile’ story. Great characters, great fun interspersed with lots of Italian food, hot sex and handsome vampires that bite.
