Good afternoon on this lovely September day. Thankfully, the heavy summer heat has finally receded, and my favorite season has arrived, bringing with it some troubling news.
My American publisher, Secret Cravings Publishing, is closing its doors for now, leaving over two hundred authors and their books homeless. But even though we are all sad because we lost a wonderful publisher, Indie authors always have the option of self-publishing their books.
That is exactly what I did with the books I had with SCP. However, I didn’t just republished them, but reinvented them, so the two books in The Coriola Saga have new titles, new covers, new prices.
A French Kiss in London
Gerard Leon and Linda Coriola fight for the same cause. The attractive, noble, dedicated French doctor and the beautiful, sensitive Italian sculptress both donate their time and money to Hope – a clinic for children’s cancer research and treatment.
From the moment they meet, even the air between them crackles with intense attraction. But her past makes it difficult for Gerard to understand her scars and battle with her demons.
In search of a cure for cancer and armed with an innovative treatment themselves, they leave for Transylvania, that enigmatic land hidden in the heart of the Carpathians.
There they get lost and have a bizarre experience in the Hoia-Baciu forest, nicknamed The Romanian Bermuda Triangle due to all the inexplicable paranormal phenomena happening in its depths.
But no one believes them, because they don’t have any proof of said experience. Or do they?…
*“A French Kiss in London” is the sister-story of “Falling for Italy” and the first book in The Coriola Saga. Each book can be read as a stand-alone.

Falling for Italy
Italian businessman Giovanni Coriola and English target-shooting trainer Sonia Galsworthy have only two things in common—a sizzling chemistry and no desire for commitment. When they meet in London, the world starts spinning faster and they quickly become addicted to each other. The incendiary passion between them skyrockets into smoldering, once-in-a-lifetime love.
Just as they thought they had things settled, a strange discovery triggers a mysterious spiral of events that puts their lives in danger more than once, with no apparent reason.
What connection could there be between an ancient amulet, a secret society and the long-dead poet Dante Alighieri? A sinister, complicated conspiracy that gradually catches up with the characters. And of course, one last twist before the ending.
*“Falling for Italy” is the sister-story of “A French Kiss in London” and the second book in The Coriola Saga. Each book can be read as a stand-alone.
You can buy the stories from Amazon, or read them for free on Kindle Unlimited.
