To most people, princes, princesses, counts and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairytales. Crowns, priceless jewels and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams.
But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth.
For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country’s most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set.
I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status and masked balls, they are everything and more.
And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘A VEIL OF VINES’ by Tillie Cole:
The latest breath-taking novel by author Tillie Cole titled “A Veil Of Vines” is truly a modern day fairy-tale. A Veil Of Vines comfortably nestles itself into the Contemporary Romance genre as well as joining the New Adult genre. The story follows the wondrous place where both traditional expectations crosses paths with unyielding fate. A Veil Of Vines is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views), from Duchessa de Parma Caresa Acardis and the humble winemaker Achille Marchesi.
Caresa Acardis has lived most of her life in New York. Her family moved there many years ago from Italy so her father, a Duke, could run the U.S. section of their wine business in the city. Even though kings and queens are rarely viewed as anything more than an old traditional title, the duties remain the same for those tied to that traditional lifestyles. Caresa is also known as Duchessa de Parma. She is promised to marry a prince in Italy that she only met as a child. That’s just how their lives are set to follow. Will Caresa be able to do what she must in order to save the families stake in the wine business?
Zeno Savona is a prince and has grown a reputation of being a playboy and someone who likes to have a good time, especially after the death of his father who held the title of King. His father owns a successful winery business and Zeno is set to take the Reigns after his father’s unexpected death. Zeno must step up and change his lifestyle or risk losing everything that his father succeeded in growing, business-wise and reputation wise. Will Zeno be able to change his ways in order to keep their wine business alive or will he be a complete failure?
What Caresa and Zeno never expected, was Achille Marchesi. Achille is the quiet son of the Merlot winemaker who lives a modest and secluded life in a cabin on one of the Savona lands. The wine that Achille has learned to make is like non-other. It’s very expensive, not as easy to find since only a small amount is made, and it’s award winning. Achille, has no idea about all of that. He’s just satisfied with doing what he loves, and that’s making wine like his father did before he passed away. When Achille and Caresa first meet, they realize that wine is a mutual love and their loneliness may also be something they both never knew they had in common. Will Achille and Caresa’s friendship be a problem or does life have a funny way of working itself out?
A Veil Of Vines is a romantic and dynamic journey into a world of exquisite wine, poetic depth, and living beyond expectations. Sometimes secrets can change things for the better, after the initial pain they may cause. These characters are enthralling and beautiful in their own wonderful ways. I do highly recommend this novel for readers who enjoy Author Tillie Cole’s amazing writing and the fascinating way she creates a story that grabs you and entertains from start to finish. It will take you into the serene beauties of Italy and the characters, Caresa, Achille, and Zeno will make you enjoy reading something without too much negative weight. This one is definitely worth checking out next! ❤
