12_11 Rosamanti_ByNoelleClark-453x680Sarah seeks solitude and fresh pastures in the wake of her husband’s early death. She answers a newspaper advertisement and takes up residence in Villa Rosamanti, a gorgeous 400 year-old dwelling nestled into the hillside of Monte Tiberio, on the Island of Capri, Italy.

She soon discovers a strong resonance with the house, the gardens, and the quirky pets. As the sun-filled days pass in the gorgeous old house, she builds a deep liking for, and rapport with, Elena Lombardi, the deceased owner. But it’s when she meets Pietro, Elena’s grandson, that she finds it’s not just the villa that she’s falling in love with.

Handsome, charming, and the epitome of a passionate Italian, Pietro lets the magic of Rosamanti work its wonders on Sarah. Together they search for ancient treasure, and end up finding each other, their love blooming like the rampant bougainvillea blossoms in the garden at Rosamanti.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Finally standing upright, she let her eyes scan the rocks and little caves above and around her. Although the light was dim, the trough of the ebbing wave allowed light in. She glimpsed, on one such wave, a round hook protruding from the wall high above her. Her heart leapt in her chest. Signs of humanity! Carefully placing each foot, and holding tight with her broken nails to tiny finger holes, she climbed over slippery, shell encrusted grey boulders until she lay panting, totally spent, at the rusty ring in the wall. The ledge here was wider, flatter, and certainly a lot higher above the swells which whooshed into the grotto, swirled around like a washing machine, and then exited with a loud rush through the tiny entrance. The noise of them alone was frightening, but the thought of being swept off the ledge and sucked down under the turbulent water was enough to make her feel sick.

Her hands shaking, she took off her bra by undoing the back and threading it down both armholes of her T-shirt. She tied one end of her bra to the ring, the other, awkwardly using one hand, to her wrist. Positioning herself as far back as she could against the wall, she huddled with knees drawn up, her head resting on them, and one hand slightly elevated toward the ring where she was tethered. Fatalistically, she allowed herself to fall asleep, telling herself that either she was going to make it through the unknown that the night ahead would bring—or she wouldn’t.
