Look closer, into Hotel Totally Five Star Venice, where art curator Monique Le Bres has just walked through the doors of the newly opened swanky luxury hotel to assist with their art collection. Alessandro Bonnard, the world-renowned art connoisseur and collector has been sent incognito to supervise Monique and oversee her acquisitions for the hotel.
Concealing his true identity, Alessandro is intrigued by the art-loving vixen with an appetite for kinky sex. He pursues Monique, charming her at every turn — taking her to places she’s never been — both in and out of bedroom.
Monique falls hard for the man who has utterly captured her body and soul. Only to find out he isn’t who she thought he was after all…he’s an art thief on the run…with her heart.

A VIXEN IN VENICE by Kate Deveaux
Waiting a good half hour, Monique was quite sure the coast was clear after  her supervisor had departed. Weary from her travels she couldn’t wait to get back to her nice room and fall fast asleep in the sumptuous looking bed.
Stepping out of her office, Monique headed for the elevator at the end of the hall, noticing each door she passed had a nametag with identifiers. Sales the Direttore Vendite.  Food and Beverage. Diretorre del Marketing. Director of Marketing and so on.
The subdued hush of voices from an adjoining hallway made Monique stop in her tracks. Pausing, she listened. The soft giggles intrigued her. Tiptoeing towards the sound, she peered around the corner. Near the end of the hall, she glimpsed Donovan’s silhouette as he leaned against a woman, kissing her. His hands holding hers above her head as she hooked one long leg around his waist, pulling him closer to her as they embraced passionately.
Monique’s key slipped from her hand and tinkled noisily on the wood floor. Mouth agape, her cheeks flamed as Donovan looked up and nodded to her from down the long hallway. Then the woman looked at her too. Monique immediately recognized the young blonde with the pixie cut hair and the cute little body from the lobby. The one she’d seen Donovan pat on the ass when Monique had first arrived.
The young woman merely smiled at Monique, her legs still wrapped around her supervisor’s hips, and then returned to kissing Donovan. Running her hands along his wide shoulders before he spun her around and planted his hands on her ass, pulling her too him. Hard. Monique looked away, but then back again. Strangely aroused at the unbridled passion, she was aware her nipples peaked under her silk blouse as she watched his hands slide over her curves and slide up and then up and under her skirt.
He tugged the woman’s panties down.
 She kicked them off with flair. Crumpled, the lace thong lay in the hall while the lovers went at it. Grabbing, tasting, and kissing. Monique was aware her own panties were moist, shocked by her own enjoyment at watching them. Hiking the woman’s skirt up further, Donovan pursued her, baring her sculpted thighs and making Monique’s body quiver as she watched when Donovan slid his fingers between the woman’s legs. A soft groan escaped his lover’s mouth as they kissed and she tugged impatiently at his belt.
Monique gulped an audible gulp. Donovan cocked at eye in her direction.  Monique quickly retreated, embarrassed to have been caught standing there enjoying spying on the lovers.

A Vixen in Venice is a fun, sexy book that I enjoyed reading.  It has an interesting storyline, great main characters, and a fabulous setting.  A Vixen in Venice is a lighthearted read, perfect for enjoying with a glass of wine after a busy day.  This is my first book by this author, but I would definitely read more of her books.

Monique has travelled from Kansas to Venice for her dream job at a luxury hotel where she will be their art curator.  Alessandro, who is a famous art collector, has been sent by the hotel owner to oversee Monique's work, but he must hide his true identity.  He is intrigued by Monique and is extremely attracted to her. They start a steamy relationship, but how will Monique feel when she finds out Alessandro has been lying to her about his identity?

I really liked Monique, she is sexy, smart, strong and brave - it takes some courage to use all your life savings travelling to another continent for an interview for a job you might not get! Luckily that risk paid off for Monique and she got the job she desperately wanted.  Alessandro aka Luc, is handsome and charming but it took me a while to warm to him.  I'm not sure what the problem was, but I struggled to connect with him.  The chemistry between Monique and Alessandro is oh so hot, this book will set your e-reader on fire!  This is a good, fun read that I enjoyed so I give A Vixen in Venice four stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
