(A Rinaldi Romance Part 9)
by Emily Jane Trent
Gianni Rinaldi was introduced in the Touched By You series, the endearing romance of Tanner and Natalie.
Gianni was the owner of GR Showroom, and showcased Natalie’s fashions. He was a source of jealousy for Tanner, although his relationship with Natalie was strictly professional in the Touched By You series. But he was deeply involved in his own romance, which you can now read about in “Leah’s Seduction.”
The story unfolds over a series of novellas. Each is an episode in the ongoing tale of seduction into the secrets of the fashion industry, and the temptations of love.
The threat from Ava builds the tension between Gianni and Leah. But the intimate scenes between them are hotter than ever. They escape for a weekend together, only to be hit harder by the press when they return. Gianni has reached his limit, and refuses to play it safe. Risking it all, he makes a move to regain control, and take his life back. What he feels for Leah is more than he anticipated, and can no longer be ignored.
Leah fears that Ava has incriminating photographs of Gianni. But all she can do is wait. The emotion draws her closer to Gianni, and her submission to him deepens. She senses a change in the man she loves, but hardly dares to hope.
Gianni strives to bring Ava under control, while the press continues to harass him. Protecting Leah from the attacks is his priority, and the media attacks push him too far. Then an unexpected event gives him the chance that could make the difference. And his feelings for Leah cannot be ignored.
