'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes

Freddie Markson likes to have fun. He loves men, and knowing he's headed to Rome, Italy for the summer means only one thing: fling after fling after fling. But from the moment he meets the wealthy Patsy Abbott, Freddie realizes his priorities are about to change. She challenges him to pick up a guy on the flight, and while that goes well enough, it's what happens after they land that will change fun-loving Freddie forever.

His name is Santo Mancusi, and he's among the most handsome men Freddie has ever seen. A chance encounter through Patsy has the two men hooking up. But Santo has a secret past, one he is reluctant to revisit. After a night of rapturous sex with Santo, Freddie realizes this may just be more than a fling. Could Cupid have pierced his cynical heart?

Drenched in the heated passion of Rome, Freddie's adventure will take him from the ancient Colosseum to the rolling hills of Santo's family's Tuscan villa, all in pursuit of a passionate love he cannot deny. With secrets exposed, hearts opened, Freddie and Santo realize that anything is possible.

Steamy, sexy, satisfying, RAPUTRE IN ROME will remind you that all roads lead to love.

Don't miss PASSION IN PARIS and LUST IN LONDON, as well as the prequel short story, PRELUDE TO A FLING, available in NOCTURNAL DELIGHTS.
