I read the first draft of this book, but the final blew my mind. The only thing that could have made this story better was if the art work, descriptions of which were liberally sprinkled within the text, was shown. Although, Ms. Anderson's word pictures were more than amazingly colorful.
Nick and Ellie's marriage of convenience budded into a true love relationship. I delighted in Nick's discovery of his dual nature, his interest in his wife's feminine body. I saw what he saw, felt what he felt, the descriptions were so vivid. When Luca was added to the mix, emotions just exploded. The love scenes were exquisitely sensual and delicately graphic. Loving Leonardo is a true sensual and erotic romance.
The last scene was an example of Ms. Anderson's typical surprise endings. That's all I'll say. ;-)
