As Angelo learns his background, you are sure to have a love/hate relationship with him. You first wonder why he is so cold but as you hear his story, you know there is much more to it. As you teach of Donald Hamilton the man who stole his mother’s money and then onto Gwenna the daughter of such a “horrid man” you can only wonder if the story is true. In the beginning you know that at some point the two will meet (come on we know this is a Romance Novel) just from the cover of the book. Okay and the two meet because of Piglet. I love it and found myself literally laughing aloud. When he offers to allow Gwenna to help, pay off by being the “mistress” it becomes interesting. Although the story was predictable, I can say that it was interesting and definitely a Harlequin romance.

Angelo Riccardi is the grandson of notorious crime family head Carmelo Zanetti. When Zanetti is dying, he summons Angelo to his bedside to tell him the awful secret of his family, including the fact that his late mother had been swindled by English fraudster Donald Hamilton and then dumped. Although he has always been on the right side of the law, his Italian heritage surfaces as he vows revenge on Hamilton.
But then, he meets Gwenna, Hamilton’s daughter and sparks of all kind begin to fly, more so when he includes her in his web of vendetta.
I have to begin by confessing that I’m not normally a fan of romance novels. Too many ripped bodices and heaving bosoms, exquisitely beautiful maidens and unbelievably handsome swains for my taste. But, Lynne Graham’s The Italian’s Inexperienced Mistress is not your usual cloyingly described sex scenes interspersed with a few paragraphs of purple prose narrative. I mean, it has a lot of the obligatory coupling, grappling, and heavy breathing, enough in fact to satisfy fans of the genre. But, it is also a novel of high intrigue, suspense, and not a small amount of humor. Part Cinderella, part Great Gatsby, Angelo’s adventures, Gwenna’s inner turmoil, and the path of their relationship will keep you turning the pages. ( )

When Angelo Riccardi sought revenge Gwenna Hamilton added another, delicious dimension. Innocent and pretty, she had no chance when the Italian tycoon offered her the devil's bargain: pay for her father's freedom with her body.

In her naiveté, Gwenna thought that Angelo would tire of her and her innocence very quickly. But he had more in mind than just one night…
