"Gets under your skin."
--Praise for the novels of Gabrielle Kimm
Francesca Felizzi knows she wields an immense power over men.
Her patrons see only a carefree courtesan, and they pay handsomely
for the privilege of her time. Francesca never saw him coming, the
man who cracked her heart open and ruined her for the job. But he's
shown her what a gaudy facade she's built, and she doesn't know how
to tear it down without taking her beloved daughters with her. The
wrong move could plunge all of them into the sort of danger she has
dreaded ever since she began her perilous work all those years
An exquisite tale that explores the intricate nature of a
mother's heart. The Courtesan's Lover draws you close and whispers
in your ear. In the tradition of Sarah Dunant and Marina Fiorato, a
compelling and vibrant tale from an up-and-coming fresh voice that
readers will want to savor.
