Reading Romances Challenge - February

February's theme is "Foreigners Do it Better." Basically, the hero needed to be anything other than American or English. I immediately looked up author Sloane Taylor, who's established herself as the queen of foreign hero romances, and downloaded Masquerade onto my Kindle.

Behind every mask is a fragment of truth.

Chicagoan Clancy Marshall has planned her dream vacation in Venice down to the last detail. From gondola rides to masked balls, and anything else that just happens along, she is determined to experience all pleasures. But those careful plans fly out the door when she literally falls into the arms of a masked stranger.

Vittore Ricci comes from an old Venetian family that claims two doges in their lineage. A straight-laced Count and owner of a prestigious hotel, he never does anything without serious consideration. Until a sexy American tourist falls into his arms.

If you've ever wanted to take a trip to Venice, reading this book is the next best thing to a real life experience. Masquerade swept me away into this amazing, gorgeous city. Oh, and if you like Italian food--don't worry, Sloane has you covered there too! The romance is sweet. The sex is hot, and the backdrop is too die for. Who wouldn't want to be swept off their feet by a rich, gorgeous AND thoughtful Italian man?! Excuse me while I go make some travel reservations...
