Genre - Adult contemporary Romance - The Luminara Series by SJ Molloy
'Lussuria', (Lussuria being Italian for Lust)
An emotional erotic heart-wrenching story of lust, love and light
Alexis Evangeline Robertson is young, insecure and daunted with painful memories from her dark, tortured childhood. She has rules, and she has boundaries.
She never lets anyone too close.
Lucca Caruso has the most mesmerising crystal azure blue eyes and a heart of gold. When Lexi meets this Italian God, she doesn’t expect to see him again.
But fate intervenes.
While on vacation at a Villa in Val D'Orcia, near the Chianti hills outside of Florence, she is more than surprised to see Lucca arrive at the very same villa. Lexi begins a journey of self-discovery, helplessly folding, melting and crumbling to the temptation of her heart’s desire.
After the desires of lust ...
And the sweetness of love ...
Lexi will spread her wings towards the light ...
This is the story of one girl’s destiny to find her light from her sinister, dark and harrowing past and the one man who can take her there.
“I owe you this, I want to tell you”. “No, I want to understand, really I do but it’s better to write down in your journal for me Lexi, I love you so much but I want you to tell me when you are ready. You are not ready now, this is wrong and I’m so sorry about Sunday. I understand now why you shut me out and of your insecurities. It will never change the way I feel about you. You are beautiful and special and your mother is blessed to have you, don’t you ever doubt that, fate has brought us together and I have no intention of letting you go. It just hurts to hear the truth because I care so deeply and I love you”.
I feel his chest contracting heavily against my back, his face buries in my neck surrounded by my long soft tousled hair. He inhales the tropical scent of my shampoo and his hand wraps protectively around my waist pulling me further back into his embrace to kiss my cheek sweetly. I’m safe…
“Nice underwear, you look amazing lying there, but they are not staying on”.
About The Author
SJ Molloy, first time British Author of ‘The Luminara Series’ was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a young child, her family moved and raised her in Lanarkshire, Scotland where she currently resides with her husband, two daughters and her energetic, hyperactive loving gun dog who is utterly spoiled.
SJ is a qualified Fitness Instructor and Health & Fitness Motivator of various fitness styles and disciplines. Music and dance aerobics have always been a pleasure and passion for her. SJ will sporadically make up dance style routines at any hour of the day when a move comes to her or piece of music moves or inspires her. Currently not teaching classes she is focusing her time into nurturing her yearning passion for creative writing, exchanging one visualization for another.
As a child, SJ loved to write in journals and make up short stories and has a flare for all things creative. With an overactive imagination at times, SJ adores to make notes, visualize scenes and settings to create characterizations.
While on holiday with her family one summer reading book after book, she had a flash of inspiration and has had various ideas whirling around in her mind ever since. It was not until she pulled back on teaching classes that she found the courage, time and insight into actually bringing these ideas to life.
In February 2013 she decided to bring that imagination to light by beginning her writing journey with ‘Lussuria’ the first installment in ‘The Luminara Series’ available from late October 2013.
Being a self-confessed book junkie, she loves nothing better than to get lost in an emotional and moving book. A true romantic at heart, her guilty pleasure is reading heart-warming, passionate stories and falling in love with her favorite fictional characters.
With five books already mapped out in ‘The Luminara Series’, SJ’s busy creative mind has already planned two more fictitious novels, both stand-alone romance books and very different in their own right.
When she is not writing or reading, spending time with family and friends or exercising and walking her dog, SJ loves all things practical and creative. Dancing, music, cooking, travelling, good food and wine and painting are her favorite past times along with laughter, lots and lots of laughter.
