Venetian Love Knots
by Normandie Alleman


In Venice, Allison Fox will find love in the arms of two men. Her past collides with her future in a battle for her heart. Which one will win?

Travelling to Venice to be the maid of honour in her best friend’s wedding sounds like a great vacation, and a romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day. But when Allison Fox discovers who the best man is, she is torn between duty and self-preservation.

It has taken Allison four years to put her tumultuous relationship with the rodeo cowboy behind her after a violent incident ripped them apart. Now Allison must find a way to face her past and find closure with her old flame. But will she be able to put the past behind her?

Cole is the Texas cowboy who has never got over his love for Allison. But when he declares his love for her after all this time, is she strong enough to walk away from the intense passion they share?

For years Nico, a handsome Italian, was committed to nothing but his work. Nico never expected he would meet an American beauty who would awaken in him a desire to love again. Once he finds her, Nico vows to never let Allison go.

It will be a Valentine’s Day to remember, but who will win Allison’s heart?



Upstairs, as they tumbled into his room, Cole warned her, “Allison, you are going to have to trust me tonight. Do you think you can do that?”

“Oh, yes!” she cried between his kisses, barely catching her breath.

“Okay, then hold on just a minute, baby. Do you want anything to drink? Do you have to go to the bathroom?” he asked.

“No, why?” she asked, her head clearing a little.

“Because I am going to tie you up,” he said. Then he bit her lip, fondling one of her breasts. Abruptly, he walked away, leaving her standing, shocked.

Allison wasn’t sure she’d heard him correctly. She needed to sit down. Wait, maybe she did need to go to the bathroom. Yes, then she could sit down. And go to the bathroom. Tie her up? Was he serious?

Allison knew Cole, and he didn’t kid around about things like this. What was she going to do? Well, she would let him do it, of course. She let Cole do…anything? That was why he had said she would have to trust him. She did trust him. She trusted him not to hurt her. At least physically. Emotionally, now that was a different story…

Okay, she could do this. It might be fun.

Cole had returned with some white silky ropes and a rakish grin. He looked like he was really going to enjoy this. Maybe a little too much. How long had he been planning this? Did he do this all the time? Allison wasn’t brave enough to ask that last question.

“Are you scared? You don’t need to be scared, babe. I promise I won’t hurt you.” He laughed. “Unless you want me to.”

  1. Thanks so much for hosting me today!

  2. Did you visit Venice yourself as well?

  3. Thank you for the excerpt, I enjoyed it.


  4. I'm surprised she allowed him that much, after their break up.

  5. Yes, Lyra. I've been to Venice. It's my favorite city, I'd love to go back again.

  6. I don't like Cole. I sure hope she ends up with the Italian.

  7. All your readers have a favorite, who is your favorite character Nico or Cole? :)


  8. I like Nico, hopefully she will choose him in the end!


  9. Ami, I had a lot of fun writing Cole. He was more fun than Nico, but I guess I'd rather end up with a Nico. :) At the same time, it's amazing when you have a connection with someone that is so strong - the way Allison and Cole do.

  10. That's a lot of trust being asked in the excerpt.

    I'm still undecided as to my choice.


  11. Thanks for sharing the excerpt! It's really hard to choose! I can see why Allison has such a hard time!
