More About the Author

Growing up in Maplewood, New Jersey, I was the good girl who went to Catholic school and never misbehaved. If only the nuns could see me now-writing contemporary erotic romance with smoking hot heroes, strong heroines, and lots of naughty words!

Once a month, I watch "North and South" with Richard Armitage because I love hearing him say, "Look back. Look back at me." I am also slightly obsessed with European royals and reruns of "Battle of the Network Stars" every Monday night on ESPN Classic.

Confession: I know NOTHING about opera. Seriously, outside of Downton Abbey, I have never seen it performed. So to find myself reading a book about an aspiring opera singer was a little strange. Did I get the occasional references? No. Did it matter? NO! Because it wasn’t about the music, it was about two people from different stations falling in love. And I can’t seem to get enough of those kinds of stories.

Allegra Orsini is working her way through grad school in the hopes of becoming an opera singer. When she encounters billionaire Davison Cabot Berkeley while working at the Le Bistro, she senses an immediate connection with the tabloid darling.

Davison sees Allegra as no-one else does – to him, she is more than just a coat-check girl, and he’s determined to get to know more about her. But Allegra is from a different world to the wealthy and successful Davison. Her past is dark, her memories bitter and her future not as bright as his. She wants him, the man that seemingly sees straight into her very soul, but she doesn’t think she deserves him.

Davison is determined to make the beautiful singer his, no matter the cost and regardless of her past. Will the secret she keeps come between them? Or will they find their happiness?

This was a surprisingly suspenseful story – which is not something I expected when I picked it up. But that suspense set it apart from other books that follow a similar storyline – rich man falls for beautiful but poor girl – and made into something a little bit special.

I loved the alpha tendencies that Davison showed immediately and their first meeting – when Allegra assists him at Le Bistro – was practically jumping off the page from all the sexual tension.

This is a wonderfully sexy and romantic story about a opera student and a wealthy NY businessman. But it is much more than that. The characters have chemistry, thanks to the excellent writing of Sophia Tate, and the backdrop of New York City only adds to the overall glamour of the story.
The hero is sexy, of course good looking but kind, considerate and truly a good guy. No hidden agenda or pretending to be something he isn't. You'd want him even if he wasn't rich
The heroine is strong and independent for all that she is damaged from a childhood incident. Ms. Tate does a wonderful job of weaving the mystery in with the hot and steamy romance. I love the supporting characters and hope her best friend may one day get a story of her own.(hint)
Overall this is an excellent read and I highly recommend it!

Yes, this is another rich, sexy, hot man meets average woman etc. etc. etc. Instead of it being Him with the dark secret, it was Her. Although, I wouldn't say the secret was that particularly dark but it was traumatic enough to affect Allegra's life. Other than that, it was the same as many other books out there (J Kenner, Maya Banks, EL James, Silvia Day) except Breathless for Him ended on a HEA. No cliffhanger's and no one walking away. Yippee!

The sex was spot on, the writing excellent, the storyline easy to follow and enjoy. There wasn't the repetition that I often see in books like this.

So, all-in-all it was a good book. I liked it and I'm looking forward to reading book two. Thank-you work colleague for recommending this book :)

This book was fantastic! I was drawn into this book from the very beginning and fell in love very quickly with Davison and Allegra. They both are superbly written characters that have such a depth to them. I loved that the author sent us on not just a love story of two people, but also had some major steam and a little bit of suspense as well. Great job with this one! I am looking forward to the conclusion of Davison and Allegra's story. A great 5 AMAZEBALLS stars for me!!

There are a lot of girl meets rich man and falls in love with him stories out there, and while I really liked them in the beginning, I have found that unless there is some kind of secondary plot line within the story it just isn’t enough for me to really like the book. But Breathless for Him has an interesting twist part that starts building up right from the beginning, and its definitely a mystery I enjoyed reading.

So Allegra is an opera singer/student who is putting herself through school at a very upscale restaurant at the coat check. When it turns out the hot billionaire guy who is all over the tabloids is actually a silent owner, and is suddenly going to be around on a nightly basis, Allegra’s life really starts to change. I liked how Davison and Allegra’s started out, he’s clearly smitten with her, and there is clearly an electric connection between the two of them, but neither one of them just jumps into bed, there is a slow build up that happens over many nights where Davison drives her home.

Allegra clearly has something hidden in her past that is clearly haunting her, and as you read on through the book you get more and more of an idea about what that event from her past is. It’s clearly something that affects her, something that she thinks makes her undesirable, and on several occasions it causes her to pull away from the connection she has with Davison, because she doesn’t want him to find out about her past. I have to say that I really did enjoy when her past started to become a part of her present, although I thought that at the end it was wrapped up a little two quickly.

Davison I like a lot. For a lot of different reasons. He’s a very take charge kind of man, which I love. I liked that he stood up and said what he thought no matter who to.
