Publisher's Summary

In a last-ditch attempt to secure an investor for an app she’s developed, Rome Foster travels to her namesake city hoping her luck is going to change. Just as she’s about to pitch her life’s work, she meets the charming and captivating Nadine, a high-end escort who shocks Rome by flirting with her. Rome is straight, but Nadine sparks up a fire in her so strong that it seems impossible to extinguish.

Nadine Costa is pleased with the way her life is going. She lives in a fantastic apartment in the city she loves, and her lucrative job provides the funds she needs to support her expensive passion: perfume-making. When Rome crosses her path, she knows she’s never smelled anything quite so exquisite in her life.

Rome is a loner and doesn’t let people in, but when an incident occurs and Nadine steps in to save her, she realizes her feelings go deeper than just lust. Neither of them was looking for something more than physical, but when the stars are aligned, it’s hard to escape destiny!

I really like Lise Gold books

This doesn’t disappoint. It’s sweet, and touches on important issues. The live story felt good. Not too overwhelming. Just sweet and perfect.

Loved it

Another great romance by Lise Gold. It’s not just great romance but she makes you feel invested in the characters. There are multiple mini plot lines going on and she’s able to weave them together and blend with the overall story line. Would recommend this and anything else written by Ms. Gold.

Wonderful story

Audible version as good as the book, but better listening to it. The only thing is that Nadines character should have had a more sultry voice than the screechy voice she had in this book. The image portrayed by the description provided by the author would have called for a deeper sexier voice, other than that this book was fantastic.

Even though there are a little angst in this book, I just love how it makes you happy for Rome and Nadine. Tj Richards also have a perfect voice for this book.

Love it!

This book was equal parts sweet and sexy. If you’re looking for a complex plot I wouldn’t look here. Loved it, and look forward to more from this author and narrator.

Listener received this title free

In a city that is your name Rome is just magical.

I received this audible book from the author whose magnificent writing always takes me to the places in her books. Nadine lives in Rome creating perfumes which is her passion. She meets Rome who is trying to sell her carbon footprint app to some wealthy locals. Nadine is an escort for one of the men and their chance meeting starts a connection that is instant and hot. Two loners learn that they are even better together. There is so much more to this delightful story. A guarantee you will feel like you are in Rome. A divine romance with great attraction and healthy love that gives great courage. The descriptions of the city elegantly shared by TJ Richards to enhance your reading and listen priceless. I owned the book already it this audio was a wonderful gift. A great listen!

Such a beautifully written story

There wasn't a moment where I thought, this would never happen. The characters, their dilmenas, their evolution, it all nicely progressed. Lise Good also dealt with a difficult topic in a way that didn't detract from the romance. I enjoyed getting to know Nadine the most and Eliza! The narration was great too! Very much recommend it.
