All of Court's Men!! #Luca


For the next eight weeks, each week we are going to be visiting one of author Courtney Cole's yummy leading men. (Let me clarify that. That is the men in her books; she doesn't have eight gorgeous pieces of man candy lying around her house for us to come visit. If she does, she's holding out on us!) So, since we can't get out hands on the actual men, we get to drool all over yummy words and pictures!!
This week, because his story just came out, she's highlighting Luca Minaldi.
*and my heart melts onto the floor*
I guess what they say about your first is true. Luca Minaldi was my first Courtney Cole stud (I know...I know!! What took me so long??) and he will FOREVER hold my heart in his hands!! And he is more than welcome to hold any other body part of mine if he so wishes. ;-)
Be sure to stop by Courtney Cole's BLOG and find out why you should get to know Luca. If you want my thoughts on him, or on the pure awesomeness known as The Minaldi Legacy, feel free to check out my REVIEW here. (On a side note: you know the book is off the charts when your book hangover last longer than a week, so be prepared!!)
All throughout the week, we'll be posting teasers, so enjoy and stay tuned for all of Court's men!!

And just in case the hot man picture isn't enough for you, here's a picture of Luca's Irish wolfhound, Grendel. He's the reason EVERYONE needs a dog, or in his case, a dog the size of a small horse!!

About The Minaldi Legacy:

“I’m a monster, Eva.  There’s no saving a monster.  But I love that you want to try.”

Luca Minaldi is rich, powerful and mesmerizing.  He’s also a reclusive enigma.  He lives in Malta, a fairy-tale place filled with sunshine and sea, beauty and secrets.  And Luca’s darkest of secrets is the best-kept of them all. 

Eva Talbot moves to Malta to finish her doctoral dissertation in Psychiatry.  When she meets Luca, there is a very real and instant attraction that she has never felt before. But even still, she senses the darkness that lives within him.   

Eva is hired to care for Luca’s mother, a woman who suffers from dementia.  It is Luca, however, that Eva will eventually risk everything to save… as the legacy that plagues him continues.  

As the darkness swirls ever more tightly around her, Eva realizes that no matter how hard she tries, she might not be able to save Luca without losing herself. 

Eva and Luca are thrust into a world where their love is tested and darkness reigns.  Amid chaos and treachery, love and hate, Luca and Eva learn one important thing.

Love is dangerous. 
But it also might be the one thing that can save them all. 
The Minaldi Legacy consists of two parts, part one:  Of Blood and Bone and part two:  Of Darkness and Demons.  It contains adult themes and content.
