Dating da Vinci by Malena Lott
Thank goodness romance readers believe in happy endings. Don’t you think with the way the world has been going – war, the economy, the election – that a few happy endings are in order?
With my new novel, Dating da Vinci, about one young widowed mother’s renaissance with the help of one hot Italian, a happy ending hangs in the balance. For my protagonist, Ramona, who teaches English to immigrants, happiness is that juicy piece of fruit hanging too high up on the tree to reach. Now she’s finally ready to jump higher. Or does she need a lift?
For the hard-core romance readers reading this, I’d like to say that my novel is best considered mainstream with strong romantic elements. As one book blogger said, “you’ll laugh, cry and fall in love all over again,” but you’ll also get some strong sub-plots involving Ramona’s awakening, too. I added a lot of layers I hope you’ll enjoy – such as pieces of Ramona’s dissertation on the “Language of Love,” the mystery of whether or not her husband cheated with his ex-fiancee before he died, and her attempts outside her comfort zone to find peace about the past and move on to a wholly new life.
If you’re looking for an autumn read that Publishers Weekly calls “satisfying and uplifting,” with a sultry romance that blends romantic fantasy and reality, then I think you’ll be more than happy with Dating da Vinci.
