Book Description

Oct. 1 2013 The Silk Merchant's Daughters
In this sweeping new series of Renaissance Italy, Bertrice Small does it again with all the passion and historical splendor that has captured the imagination of her legion of fans….

After her two elder sisters become the scandals of Florence, Lucianna Pietro d’Angelo is in the difficult position of finding a wealthy man who will have her for his wife. She has little choice but to accept the proposal of an aging bookseller—a not entirely disagreeable union in which Lucianna comforts the dear man in his final years. When he passes away, she inherits his shop and, with it, a sizable fortune.

Lucianna is content with comfortable widowhood—until Robert Minton, Earl of Lisle, visits her bookshop. The Englishman is not only dashing and handsome—he’s a trusted courtier of Henry VII.

The Pietro d’Angelos cannot deny the spark of attraction between their daughter and the earl, so they scheme to send her to London. There, Lucianna steps out of the shadow of her quiet Florentine life, pursuing a love of which she never dreamed and rising in London society all the way to court of the new Tudor king.

3.0 out of 5 stars My Review Nov. 2 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of Bertrice Small's books and sadly have to say that I didn't enjoy this as much as I did the others.

There seemed to be something missing. I hope this is just a "one time" thing as I am eagerly waiting to read her next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars another great story Oct. 2 2013
By Etoille - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't give it 5 stars because it wasn't as good as her other works. After reading her other great masterpieces I've come to expect more from her. However, it was still a good story. The suspense was weak and I enjoy a little more angst to make the good times that much sweeter. Worth the money to read though and I will continue reading everything this author writes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lucianna ~The Silk Merchants Daughters~ by Bertrice Small Oct. 3 2013
By Kimberly Rocha - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I will start this review off by saying that I am a huge fan of Bertrice Small, albeit a recent one. I first read a Dangerous Love back in 2010 and have been stuck since. Bertrice's books are memorable to say the least.

Orianna Pietro D'Angelo carefully plotted each of her daughter's lives, especially their marriages. The wife a Milanese silk merchant only wanted the best of marriages for her beautiful offspring, but sometimes the meddlesome Orianna didn't know what was best for her daughters. When Lucianna went easily into her marriage to wealthy bookseller, Alfredo Allibatore, she actually had it easy at first. Alfredo was old enough to be her grandfather and their relationship was more friendship and mutual respect than marriage. Lucianna emjoyed her work in her husband's book shop and was content with her life even remaining untouched. After three years of marriage in name only, Alfredo passed away leaving nineteen year old Lucianna a wealthy widow and once again on the marriage market to fulfill Orianna's whim.

Lucianna has no intention of marrying again. She did her duty by her parents and now she is in a position where she doesn't need a husband. Enter Robert Minton, the Earl of Lisle, a handsome Englishman who is close confidant of the English King. Sparks fly when Minton meets Lucianna, but she is in complete denial.
When Orianna and her husband see the budding attraction, they send Lucianna to England as a representative of the silk merchants of Milan as a conspiracy to push Lucianna into marriage with the Earl.

Once in England, Lucianna must deal with the difference between both cultures, the Earl desperately wanting to be involved with the beauty when she is has no intention of falling into his arms and outside forces that would have Robert and Lucianna not be together.

Lucianna, by Bertrice Small is great read. It brought me back to my love for the author after I finished the Border Chronicles. Lucianna is the third book in the Silk Merchants Daughters series, but the first I delved into and once I finished Lucianna, I happily went back to the first two books, Bianca and Francesca. Ms. Small just has a way of making you feel that you are part of the story ans Renaissance Italy just came alive for me, along with the restrictive attitudes towards women and the irony of it all. I recommend highly this series to lovers of historical romance and eagerly await the next in the series, Serena.

1.0 out of 5 stars Superb Author- Dud Story Jan. 24 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first two of the series and being moderately entertained I had hopes for this 'daughter' to prove to be more than a long drawn out novel- unfortunately I was wrong. I got half way through wondering when this story was going to pick up and it never did- there was no passion, no real meat to this story. I have to say I got about 3/4 through and decide to embark on the Skye O'Malley series again knowing I would get some fulfillment from them.

This first Silk Merchant's Daughter is probably the best of the three- although it very much resembles The Kadin and Skye O' Malley. I'd give this one a Hard Pass!

2.0 out of 5 stars Third Sister A Dud Oct. 30 2013
By Carol Blanas - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book promised a good story based on the first two Sisters books. Lucianna was a tiring read, mostly descriptions of daily life, clothes, and menus. Towards the last 25-30 pages there was a very weak plot, not at all a page turner. This writer has been my favorite, she writes very good stories with great plots. Not this time. I hope next book will be MUCH better.

2.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money or time Oct. 25 2013
By luv2readead - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointing. Story of Luciana was predictable from start to finish. Even the "mystery"stalked was easy to anticipate and added nothing to the plot. Definately not one of the author's better stories. This seems like a "quick" story to meet a contract instead of a well-thought out plot. Francesca's story was much better.
