Review of Dante’s Gift by Aubrey Wynne part of the Christmas Pets & Kisses Anthology

Released: Oct. 6, 2015

Publisher: Plato Publishing

Contemporary Vintage Romance

Kathleen James is far too practical for her own good. But on the most important night of her life, she gives way to romance and prepares for an intimate dinner with the man of her dreams—and an engagement ring. Unfortunately, the evening doesn’t end the way she envisioned.

Dominic Lawrence has planned this marriage proposal for six months. Nothing can go wrong—until his Nonna calls from Italy. Now he must interrupt the tenderest night of Katie’s life with the news that another woman will be under their roof.

Nonna, a wartime bride from the ‘40s, knows how precious love can be. Can her own love story of an American soldier and a very special collie once again bring two hearts together at Christmas?

My Review:

5 STARS

Dante’s Gift is a sweet tale that spans two generations. Aubrey Wynne takes us on a trip through time to meet lovely Italian Antonia who lives in war torn Italy during World War 2 and beautifully weaves Antonia’s story into that of the independent and beautiful Katie in present day America. As a result of their pasts, both women carry a world of heartache and fears. Fears that prevent them from surrendering their hearts. It is with the patience and strength of the two men who pursue them and the wisdom of a wonderful dog that they learn to trust. Dante’s Gift has all the elements I enjoy in a story (humor, wisdom, and tears). Wynne has crafted a beautiful short story guaranteed to warm your heart and make you sigh.

FAITH excerpt:

Author bios and contacts:

Cait Jarrod

“I write what I love to read – Romantic Suspense/Mystery- I love writing and creating the meet-cue (the point where the hero and heroine meet) to the blossoming of the romance. Add a suspenseful plot or a good mystery to the equation and the perfect book is born to curl up to and lose yourself in, taking you away from reality, troubles.”

As a child, I entertained myself for hours playing pretend, but not with dolls and such. I created stories and pictured them in my mind, sometimes even acted them out, my well preserved secret until now. I spent years after leaving school trying to figure out my niche. Not being a literary enthusiast, I never thought my childhood pastime would lead in this direction.

In life, one door closes and another opens, so I’m told. This was true for me. I lost my mother, my best friend, to cancer. After a year without her, I picked up her favorite hobby…reading. After one book, a romantic suspense, I was hooked. In the past, I’d fall asleep after a few minutes of reading. Now, books rank up there with a good red wine. It didn’t take long for my childhood muse to come back in adult version urging me to put the scenes in my head on paper.

I hope I have provided you with the escape similar to the ones I conjured in childhood and rediscovered as an adult, and I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I have loved creating them.

Cait’s debut novel, Kidnapped Hearts won awards in the categories of Best Happily Ever After and Best Suspense. Cait lives in Virginia with her husband and three daughters.

Jessica Jayne
My writing interests vary much like my reading interests. Though I mainly write romance type novels with a spicy twist, I have lived what some might call a suspenseful life. As a survivor of stalking and sexual assault, I learned the ins and outs of the legal system pretty quickly. It helped to precipitate my interest in getting my law degree… that and the fact that I grew up around attorneys. So adding suspense to my writing is no big surprise to me or anyone that knows me.”

I am a born and raised small town Ohio girl, who moved to the Sunshine State after graduating from college. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English because I could not imagine doing anything else but reading and writing. It is such a pleasure to be able to share all the stories in my head!

In the journey of life, I got my law degree (and license) and also became a wife and a mother of three children. So, life is always an adventure.

I love to read and write… obviously! I’m a huge sports fan, especially college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes! Go Steelers! Go Rays! Go Lightning! I LOVE to travel… LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. And I love sharing my love to travel with my children. Did I say I love to travel? I love to drink coffee in the morning and tea at night! I love a good glass of wine, especially if it comes from a bottle made by the FOOLS wine club… yep, I’m a founding member of that crazy group! J I love hanging out with my family and my friends! Music makes me happy. I’m a mix between country girl and city chic. But I love nothing more than putting on my jean shorts, tank top, cowboy boots and hat and watching Tim McGraw or Eric Church belt it out! I’m a sucker for a cowboy hat! J

Favorite quote: “If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies.”

 Excerpt from Spanish Nights by Valerie Twombly

Makayla had been positive Armand was going to kiss her. Instead he’d set her

aside and almost seemed angry that she had trusted him. Their ride back to the

mainland had been quiet and almost tense. What had caused the sudden change? The

kiss on the cheek? Everything had certainly gone to hell after that, but she could have

sworn he wanted her.

She brushed the hair from her face. What did she know about men anyway? It

had been two years since her last relationship and it had failed. She had failed. The

entire idea was a mistake and she should just chalk it up to a lesson learned and move

on. Tears stung her eyes. She thought she saw something good and decent in Armand.

Even if only for a one-night stand, she thought he would have catered to her every

need, giving her something her past relationships always lacked. Maybe she should

just hire the deed done. Women did it all the time now and why not? Their sexual

urges were the same as a man’s, only the rules were different.

Half an hour later, they were back at the dock and Armand helped her off the

boat.

“I’ll escort you home.”

Really? She pursed her lips. “I’m sure you have lots to do. I can see myself

home. Thank you again for a nice day.” She spun and started to walk away, but he

was on her heels.

“I wasn’t asking.” He moved in beside her.

Kayla kept her gaze ahead. She could feel the heat rising up her neck. “Suit

yourself.” If he wanted to walk with her then fine, but she refused to converse with

him. The mixed signals he kept sending were making her dizzy. He went from

seductive to demanding to angry with god-knows-what. The confusion running

through her brain gave her a headache.

Ten silent minutes later, she finally reached her front door. She slipped the key

into the lock and turned the handle. The door opened to reveal a darkened room and

she could hardly wait to escape back into it. She wondered if the entire trip was a

waste. Good manners had her turning around to face the sexy man who’d towered

beside her all day.

“Thank you again. It was lovely.”

His hands gripped her upper arms and his body pinned her against the

doorjamb. His lips crashed down on hers. Bruising. Demanding. His tongue pushed

passed and swept into her mouth. He tasted of danger and sin and she wanted to

swallow him whole. Every lean hard muscle of his chest pushed into her breasts

causing them to ache. Her nipples pebbled against her bathing suit and begged to

have his hot tongue glide across them. His erection, thick and hard, pressed into her

belly. She wanted to touch him, but with her arms pinned at her side she could do

nothing except remind herself to breathe.

He consumed her.

Armand nipped her bottom lip then pulled away causing her to moan. Even in

the dusk of the evening, she could see the desire in his eyes. It burned her soul.

“Querida, never trust a strange man again. I will be your one exception,” he

whispered. “Do you understand?”

She swallowed. Her throat parched from the inferno brewing inside her like a

wicked storm. “Y-Yes.”

“Good.” He released her then backed away. “Go inside now. I’ll pick you up

tomorrow evening for dinner.”

“O-Okay.”

Kayla stepped past the entry and closed the door behind her. She leaned against

the cool wood both to quench the fire that raged within and for support. She brought

her fingers to her swollen lips and could almost feel him still pressing against her.

“What the hell just happened?”

Her legs were like Jell-O and her heart raced. She hadn’t expected him to kiss

her. Not after the way things had ended. Even in her surprise, her body couldn’t help

but respond. She had never been kissed like that before. It had been raw. His heat had

seeped through her skin igniting something deep inside her.

“So that’s what it’s like? Holy hell.” She pushed herself off the door and walked

across the living room on wobbly legs. She needed a cold shower. Ice cold to be

exact.
