Kataryna Taylor travels to Italy to negotiate a major deal. She becomes intimate with Luca Romano, owner of the company she wants to purchase. Unfortunately for Kataryna, handsome Roberto is also attracted to her. She realizes she is the desirous target of a Desperate Pursuit in Venice, as both men compete for her attention. Luca and Roberto are friends, and Kataryna is the woman of their dreams. To add to her confusion, Kataryna's father confesses that she and her sister have a brother, who was given up for adoption. She hires a lawyer to search for her sibling, and does her best to juggle her hectic workload while sorting out her romantic life. The book is written by Karynne Summars.
This was not the predictable romance story one reads, so I was very impressed with the author, Karynne Summars. She wrote with feeling and this is clearly evident from the strong plot which is filled with drama. I felt that I had also travelled to Europe, and was a part of the unfolding story. The author also created a cast of characters whose personalities seemed so real, as well as the emotional problems they had. The passionate sexual encounters were very tastefully done, and made Desperate Pursuit in Venice more exciting to read. My attention was also caught by the attractively designed book cover. Karynne Summars wrote an original and exciting book with a unique, creative writing style which I admire very much.
