Ellie Murphy takes a contract teaching English at a school in Venice. There she meets the sexy, enigmatic Professor Piero Contarini, from an ancient Venetian family, and agrees to help him in his work curating a new edition of the memoirs of the famous seducer, Giacomo Casanova. Taking their task seriously, they start to enact his adventures with each other, ecstatically revealing their own kinks as they do so. But who is watching them from the shadowy alleyways of Venice?
I am particular about the erotic romances I read. I want a story outside of the sexy scenes. Kate Zarrelli has crafted a masterful historical romance blended with a stream erotic romance. The Casanova Papers is fantastic and I’m really happy to have taken a chance on it!
Ellie and Piero have a steamy relationship, for sure, but they also have a beautiful emotional connection. I love their relationship because it feels real. Two real people sharing a real love. Fantastic.
As I stated earlier, the plot was great too. There was some mystery and the historical aspects felt well-researched and authentic.
I highly recommend this to people who enjoy erotic reads that also contain compelling characters and an intriguing plot. Don’t miss it!
