About the Author

Sofia Tate grew up in Maplewood, NJ, the oldest of three children in a bilingual family. She was raised on 70s disaster films and 80s British New Wave music and classic tv miniseries. Her love for reading started when she received a set of Judy Blume books from her aunt when she was ten. She discovered erotic romance thanks to Charlotte Featherstone. She loves both writing and reading erotic romance. She graduated from Marymount College in Tarrytown, NY, with a degree in International Studies and a minor in Italian. She also holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Adelphi University. She has lived in London and Prague. Sofia currently resides in New York City.

More About the Author

It all started when I read "Sinful" by Charlotte Featherstone. I was hooked, and from that point on, I knew I wanted to write erotic romance. I can't wait to share Davison and Allegra's story with you!

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.

As a born & bred New York City gal, I love discovering authors who set their breathtakingly sexy romances in my Big Apple backyard! Sofia Tate's debut novel, Breathless For Him, captures my wild, maddening, beautiful, diverse City with marvelous breadth and humor and terrific detail. Allegra Orsini is an opera student, making ends meet as a coat check girl at an upscale NYC restaurant. She lives with her widowed father, who owns a butcher shop and while she still mourns her mother, and is haunted by the crime that was a tabloid sensation, she's looking forward to a career as a singer, and enjoys all that the City has to offer. Then a lost glove - a twist on the lost slipper that ended with Cinderella's HEA - brings Allegra into Davison Cabot Berkeley's billionaire realm. The billionaire has an "understanding" with a fellow blue blood princess, but it is an immediate and powerful attraction when the two denizens of such different worlds meet. The story in this book continues in Devoted to Him (just FYI for those who like to know if their romance ends with the ending or continues on as the couple seek out their happily ever after), and I am already breathless with anticipation. Breathless For Him had everything I love in a romance - smart, erudite writing filled with marvelous detail. There is opera detail, languages, art, fashion, NYC, the Met, performing arts student detail (I'm a sucker for performing artist stories, having been one in my past creative life), food, dialect and sensual detail galore. The conflict is nicely rendered to keep you guessing, and Allegra's strength in the face of her past makes her a wonderfully strong, yet vulnerable heroine.Read more ›

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 :)
