"Lynn-Davis admirably incorporates historical detail into this page-turning drama of mystery, love, and loss....Yet the standout is her depiction of Casanova - Lynn-Davis clearly enjoys crafting a real-life character who stands apart from the legend, making him the book's most enduring character." --Publishers Weekly

With Venice as the romantic backdrop and young love as its focus, this stunning tale of passion, betrayal and redemption is a richly woven tapestry of Casanova's early life. By bringing little known history to life, Lynn-Davis delivers an unforgettable love story, centering not only on Casanova, but two women who share the beauty of love and the pain of loss; one will find salvation and the other true happiness." --RT Book Reviews Barbara Lynn-Davis' debut novel is a delicious delight, a feast for the senses. . .Well-written and seductive, this book will draw the reader in. Some readers might even stay up until the wee hours to learn what becomes of Caterina and Casanova, surely one of the most passionate love stories of all time. --Historical Novels Review
