A Venetain Affair - Dana Mitchell

The Book
Release Date: 15 March 2013
When cool, reserved Helene Stoddart dons a mask in magical Venice, it changes her life forever. Her identity protected, she succumbs to a night of wild lovemaking with gorgeous Italian, Gabriel Venier. Convinced she'll never see Gabriel again, Helen returns home to Australia, where an old family scandal sees her hunted by the paparazzi. Then Gabriel arrives, looking for the mystery woman he can't forget. But the Helen he encounters is withdrawn, arctic, nothing like the gorgeous, sensual woman seared into his memory. Despite Helen's reluctance, Gabriel makes time for them to get to know each other, and for slow, delicious seduction …

My Opinion  4 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Penguin Books Australia/Destiny Romance for an honest review**

In this book our heroine Helene Stoddart is a shell of a woman with an icy facade which she uses to hide behind.

After having let her hair down for once in Venice, she goes back home to where she treated with distain for her families scandal, of which she had no involvement. But out of loyalty to her family she says nothing to anyone, hiding her anger and inner turmoil.

What she didn't see happening was the fact that the wealthy Italian man she had a one night affair with would come and find her, turing her world upside down and sideways.

He is the only one other than her sister who has managed to breach her hard worked for walls and smashes them. Gabriel Venier uses his dominant nature and patience to get what he wants, namely the blonde, blue-eyed Helena, where he wants her.

Although i loved reading this book, i felt the ending finished to abruptly, i would have loved an epilogue of a few months or even a few years later.

On the whole this is a lovely, quick read a a must for all romance readers.
