As Crimson Romance celebrates its first anniversary, we honor those pioneers who helped shape the direction of romance novels for all of us. Suspense, mystery, paranormal activity, and love - always love - have been the cornerstone of the genre since the early 1970s. Now we have updated the covers to these classics - but not the words - and reissued these timeless reads to let you relive the thrill of discovering a world of romance all over again. Florentine Death High in the hills above Florence was the beautiful old Villa Paradiso - rambling, large, of rough stone smothered in vines - home of Barbara Loomis's late great-aunt, the Contessa Mercedes d'Albiensi. Her imagination stirred by an unexpected bequest, Barbara feels compelled to visit the villa, and there she is warmly greeted by Mrs. Wadley, her great-aunt's companion, by the handsome Gianni Monteverdi and his small niece Eleanora, by the Principe and Principessa Monteverdi... But did they really want her there? Death haunted the villa. First a dog dies, wantonly poisoned. Then Barbara becomes terribly ill. Is it possible that her great-aunt's death was not an accident? And could it be that someone is trying to murder her, too? Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors
