    They shared only one night of passion, but the memory of it has stayed with Damien ever since. He searched for her for months, but even with his considerable resources, with only her first name to go on, he’d been unsuccessful. Now, six years later, Damien is speechless when he finds Jemma by chance on a farm in the rolling hills of the Virginia countryside. The woman he has sought for so long, and yet she won’t come with him now? But Damien won’t give up so easily.

    Damien’s appearance after so many years rocks Jemma’s comfortable, if simple existence. He has never left her memory either - how could he with such a visible reminder? Her son - their son - Dylan is now a precocious five, and the light of her life. Although Damien didn’t recognize him, Jemma feels honor bound to tell him about his son. But how will he react? Will he try to take Dylan away? The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1)

    Read before

    I read this before so I knew what was coming. I hate when couples are separated for a long time and then get back together like nothing happened. The little boy and his puppy were very sweet and the niece too. Just hate second chance stories like this. I do like the family part of it. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) The Italian's Passionate Return by Elizabeth Lennox is the first book of the contemporary romance The Alfieri Saga series. While part of a series there is a definite ending and the next in the series changes to another couple as the main characters so it can be read as a standalone.

    The two main characters in this story, Damien and Jemma, shared a passionate past but afterwards neither could figure out how to find one another. Now years later Jemma is perfectly happy in her life as a single mother, the product of her time with Damien, and never expected Damien to walk back into her life.

    The Italian's Passionate Return is another story at novella length so it's a fairly quick read which I found to be an alright story. Giving the couple a history together makes the fast pace of the novella a bit more tolerable to me and are ones I usually enjoy more which ended up being the case here.

    fairly quick paced. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) The writing style was fine, but I just didn't like the story. The MCs had a ONS six years ago. She was a virgin and got pregnant and hadn't slept with anyone else after that. Of course he'd been with women in the interim (though according to him not as many she she thinks). Le Sigh. Why do authors write this stuff? The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) Sweet romance.

    I always enjoy Elizabeth Lennox books but I think of them as 'go along for the ride books' you know you're getting a romance with a happy ending, a rich powerful man and generally a nice ordinary girl and there's usually a misunderstanding thrown in as well, sometimes it's just what you need.
    So when I noticed this book was free this morning I thought I'd give it a go and yes it was everything I expected, the characters were good, the story predictable but nice, so all round feel good read.
    I mentioned that I think of these books as 'go along for the ride books' what did I mean, well there's always mistakes both small and large the most obvious one in this book is when Damien asks about Dylan's birthday:
    .....If the boy had been born in the middle of January that would mean he had been conceived in....September....
    So like I said when reading these books you can't be too picky you just have to go with it and enjoy it for what it is a little romantic escape. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1)

    The

    I love this short story that I read many months ago. I thought it was an endearing tale. Unfortunately I did not care for the books that came after this one in this series so this is the only one that I finished. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) I really wanted to enjoy this story! I love messy drama and second-chance romances, but I couldn't seem to get acclimated to this author's writing style, even to the end of the story. It felt very anti-climactic and I kept waiting for something to happen, but the characters' responses and attitudes were just so matter-of-fact. Everything neatly fell into place--no fuss, no muss, despite the serious nature of a man being denied his rightful position in his son's life. I wasn't expecting an all-out war, but I was expecting a little more...something.

    Pros? The puppies, of course! It's a short read so I wasn't expecting a ton of history on the lead characters and I did like that the opening of the story jumps right to the heart of the matter.

    Cons? Male and female lead seemed kind of blah/meh. The story felt uneventful, flat almost.

    This was an okay read. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) Lovely short story that tells the lovestory of the parents of the Alfieri children. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) **Currently free on iBooks!! 06/22/2014**

    I enjoyed Jemma & Damien's story. This also felt different (in a good way!) from all of Elizabeth Lennox's other books, I think it was the layout and style. I look forward to reading about the rest of the Alfieri family come fall! :) The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1) The Italian's Passionate Return is a short story that tells the story of the romance of the romance of Jemma and Damien Alfieri.

    They shared only one night of passion, but the memory of it has stayed with Damien ever since. He searched for her for months, but even with his considerable resources, with only her first name to go on, he’d been unsuccessful. Now, six years later, Damien is speechless when he finds Jemma by chance on a farm in the rolling hills of the Virginia countryside while purchasing a puppy for his niece. To Jemma he has never left her memory either - how could he with such a visible reminder? Her son - their son - Dylan is now a precocious five, and the light of her life. Damien first meet his son in a barn and even though he didn’t recognize him he felt something about the boy was familiar.

    As I said this is a very short story but I did like it. I will buy and read other full length novels by this author. I would grade the sensuality a 7 and would recommend this for an enjoyable read. The Italian's Passionate Return (The Alfieri Saga, #1)
