More About the Author
Set in a fictional ski resort town in Colorado, eco-minded heroines face treacherous threats in the rugged landscape, explosive deception and scandalous ploys as they strive to engender real change in the world.
Book #4 ~ ONLY WITH YOU will release SPRING 2016
Dianne Venetta lives in Central Florida with her husband and two children--and her part-time Yellow Lab (Cody!). An avid gardener, she spends her spare time growing organic vegetables. Surprised by the amazing discoveries she finds there every day, she wondered, "Who knew there were so many similarities between men and plants?"
What began as a brief hiatus from writing has blossomed into an ever-expanding home garden and blog at BloominThyme.com -- stop by and share some tips!
When she's not knee-deep in dirt or romance or mystery fiction, Dianne contributes garden advice for various websites (a crazy existence to be sure). But at the end of the day, if she can inspire someone to stop and smell the roses--or rosemary!--kiss their child and spouse good-night, be kind to a neighbor and Mother Earth, then she's done all right.
Her debut novel, JENNIFER'S GARDEN received 4 1/2 stars from RT Book Reviews, May 2012!

A sensual, career-minded lawyer meets her match in her sexy, vengeance-driven co-worker in the aptly-titled LUST ON THE ROCKS. Author Dianne Venetta wasn't afraid to let her hero and heroine butt heads - on more than one front - and the sparks that flew as a result brought life to LUST ON THE ROCKS. I enjoyed watching Sam and Vic argue and compromise, push and defend, give and take. They're so similar and yet so different in character that I felt I got to know them as they worked out their differences. I liked that Ms. Venetta really let me get to know Sam and Vic, both their strengths and their flaws; that stayed with me even more than the spicy love scenes of LUST ON THE ROCKS.
Though Sam, Vic and their current case is at the center of LUST ON THE ROCKS, there is a significant subplot involving Sam's pregnant college-aged sister. Again, I appreciated the fact that Ms. Venetta had her characters examine all sides of a problem, but in the pro-choice, pro-life debate contained in LUST ON THE ROCKS, the pro-life language used got a bit heavy-handed for my personal comfort. Given that this is a sensitive subject for many readers, I felt like this needed to be mentioned.Read more ›
My second book by Dianne Venetta and this one was very similar to the first in that it definitely had some sexy times, but there was a true story at the heart. If you are a follower, you know that I don't tend to read the books that are chock full of sexy times, it makes me very uncomfortable and isn't my type of reading. But I think Venetta writes sex scenes into a story, so I can quickly skip over them and still enjoy a story built on great characters in interesting situations.
All Vic needs is to weasel his way onto her legal team and he can make sure that scheming man finally gets some jail time for the deaths his negligence has caused.
All Sam needs to do is stop fighting long enough to see beyond the revenge and the lust to the man behind the havoc.
While this was an extremely steamy read what hit me most wasn't the romance but instead the sibling relationships. There was such reality and torment in Sam's relationship with her sister. The hurt and the fear as she tries to accept the change in her role from master to guide was heart-wrenching.
I can't wait for the next one!
Sam Rawlings is a powerhouse of a woman, she is in a high profile job as a lawyer and is one case away from becoming a partner in the firm. Her boss wants her to share her hi-profile case with the new guy, Vic. But Vic has a secret, he is personally linked to the Perry case.
Sam is the type of woman who won't be tied down by a relationship or children. She is completely career driven and that's the way she likes it. But when Vic start to spend more time with her, the sparks start to fly. Things definitely hot up between the pair and there are feelings involved, which comes as quite a shock for Sam. But will Sam still feel the same when Vic's secret is revealed? She knows somethings up.
This is quite an in-depth, complex storyline, there is the Sam & Vic love affair, the on going case that they are working on and Sam's little sister Jess becomes pregnant at a young age and Sam has to help her deal with that. I especially love the back-round story of Jess' pregnancy, it was handled and written perfectly.
The ending really was fantastic as everything played out well and I was really pleased for everyone involved. Lust On The Rocks is one of them books that you could go back & read over & over again. I will definitely be looking out for more works from Dianne Venetta.
My favourite characters:
Sam - I love Sam, she is one tough cookie, she is extremely intelligent and knows what she wants out of life.Read more ›
Samantha "Sam" Rawlings is hoping to make partnership at the law firm where she works after completing this case she's working on. That is, until her boss makes her include and mentor Victor Marin. Trouble is....Vic Marin is the distraction to the case. Sam sees him for the man he is...gorgeous and sexy. Lust doesn't begin to describe the way she feels....
Vic Marin is the epitome of sexual appeal. Ms. Venetta created him in a way that her readers will (or at least this one did!) lust after him...and drool to no end over him. He's after this case that same is working on for a whole other reason. Revenge is a pretty word in his mind. But, with Sam so near to him...well, let's just say that every emotion, every bit of the passionate tension between Vic and Sam can be felt by the reader!
With lots of oh-la-la heated spiciness and fantastically created characters, Ms. Vendetta's definitely an author worthy of being put on my favorite authors list. This is most definitely a 5 Book worthy romance novel that is a perfect blend of suspense, romance, complexity. I definitely recommend this book to everyone. The ending will knock your socks off and leave you thirsting for more of Ms. Venetta's amazing stories and I can't WAIT to go back and read <em>Jennifer's Garden</em>!!! FANTABULOUS work, Ms. Venetta!

The only thing I didn't like about this book was the title. I don't see how it has to do with the book and makes it seem trashy.
