"Spellbinding, addictive, from start to finish."--Amazon customer
"Once you start reading you can't stop."--MaryAnn Forbes on Amazon
"Gia rocks! A new feisty, smart heroine and an exciting beginning of a new series!"--MsReb
" ... a fantastic new character. Great storyline, richly developed settings, and Gia. I am hooked. Kudos to the author for creating a character and series world that is truly special. Highly recommended!"--Stephen Campbell on Amazon
"Kristi Belcamino hits the jackpot once again with a striking new protagonist. Meet Giada Santella, a fast-driving, hard-drinking, Budo karate-trained free spirit, who is gorgeous, sexy, and a young heiress."--jtb on Amazon
"Once again Belcamino brings her best to the page."--Christine on Amazon
"A gritty, edgy heroine with an enormous heart and a wide grab bag of interesting friends....she's a keeper."--Dragon Tamer on Amazon
Whoa! Kristi Belcamino has done it! She has created yet another take-charge, intoxicating character who is a fierce protector of those she loves. The new girl in town is named Gia Valentina Santella, and she is smoking awesome. Belcamino's first kick-ass series' character was Gabriella Giovanni, and I have been such a fan of Gabriella that I was a bit skeptical of falling quickly for another contender. But, when this author writes, this reader falls, into storytelling and characters compelling to the core. - The Reading Room
From the Author
But she also has the biggest heart around and would give her life to save someone more vulnerable than she is.
WhenI began writing Gia, I didn't really know her, I just knew that she was a really fun character to write because I never knew what she was going to do next.
As she came to life on the page, loving her vices: drinking, drugs, and sex, I knew one thing for sure--she was about to take me for a wild ride.
Armed with an enormous inheritance, she would selflessly give everything to help someone who was down-and-out.
When we first meet her, in Gia in the City of the Dead, she has recently lost her beloved parents. She hasn't figured out how to deal with her grief in a healthy way so she at times is self-destructive and impetuous in ways that make me cringe and worry about her.
As she says, "I'm never lucky."
But somehow, she manages to survive.
I hope you love her as much as I love writing her.
Loyal as the day is long.
A true hedonist.
Thirsty for justice at all costs.
Sexy is her middle name.
I write books featuring strong, fierce, and independent women facing unspeakable evil in order to seek justice for those unable to do so themselves.
