First of all I would like to congratulate SR for doing it again—sharing his brilliant work with us! It’s so incredibly ah-mazing! How he was able to build the bridge from his Gabriel’s Series to this new Florentine Series! Yes, we will still see Gabriel and Julia in this series. Awesome right?! It’s so good and my words are just simply not enough to describe how enthralled I am by SR’s captivating story.
You can check out Tamie’s beautiful review here but for the mean time-just sit back, relax and enjoy a few teasers of mine. 😉

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel Series comes a dark, sensual tale of romance in a city shrouded in mystery…
Raven Wood spends her days at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery restoring fine works of Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semi-conscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attacker’s screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her…
When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. She returns to the Uffizi, but no one recognizes her and more disturbingly, she discovers that she’s been absent an entire week. With no recollection of the events leading up to her disappearance, Raven also learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history – the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the baffled police force identifies her as its prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth about her disappearance. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets…
Hope you enjoy my illustrations, these are just among the few of my favorite lines from the book. There’s a LOT more!
