Michele Jaffe Books Overview

The Stargazer

A fiction debut that shimmers with sensuality and evokes a magical time and place, Michele Jaffe’s The Stargazer is one of the most talked about novels of the year. A warm and witty love story laced with mesmerizing intrigue, an unforgettable adventure set against the dazzling and utterly romantic landscape of Renaissance Venice, this wonderful novel marks the arrival of a splendid new storytelling talent.

Bianca Salva, the brilliant and beautiful daughter of a renowned doctor, defies the conventions of the day by practicing medicine among the poor in her city. When she arrives at the home of a young courtesan, she is shocked to find a tragic scene: the lady has been murdered, stabbed with a dagger bearing the coat of arms of Ian Foscari, a handsome aristocrat renowned throughout Britain and Europe for his courageous escapades and his romantic conquests. Clutching the shining dagger, Bianca looks up to see none other than Ian Foscari himself.

In a heartbeat, the dashing Ian draws the obvious conclusion that he’s caught the murderer redhanded. Bianca, meanwhile, mistrusts Ian and presumes he is guilty of the bloody killing. Determined not to let this dangerous albeit alluring woman out of his sight, Ian quickly spirits Bianca back to his palace, where he will announce to society that she is his fianc e a plan that conveniently satisfies his family’s insistence that he find a wife. And while clever Bianca knows the scheme will allow them time to determine the real murderer, it is nearly unbearable to be held ‘prisoner’ by this imperious, though starkly sensual, man.

But the light of suspicion leaves them nowhere to hide. Now, what began as a necessary arrangement for their quest for the truth becomes its own kind of intriguing partnership a heated match of wits with an undeniable, irresistible passion at its core. Stepping carefully among secrets of murder and betrayal, and breathless whispers of desire, Bianca finds herself the linchpin in a conspiracy where love may be her only hope…
or the greatest danger of all.

With sureness and sensitivity, talented newcomer Michele Jaffe deftly captures a fascinating historical era…
and the ageless desires of the human heart. /Content /EditorialReview EditorialReview Source Amazon. com Review /Source Content Michele Jaffe’s first novel, The Stargazer, may have very little to do with astronomy, but its mixture of murder mystery, historical romance, and steamy passion certainly has universal appeal. Our hero*ine, Bianca Salva, a doctor of the poor and unfortunate, first meets her love interest, Ian Foscari, as she holds a bloody knife over the body of a lovely, if dead, courtesan. Equally suspect and suspicious, they agree to a sham betrothal Ian knows Bianca is guilty, and gives her one week to offer some explanation. If she fails, he can denounce her, she will be executed, and he will be no worse off. Bianca feels certain she can track down the real killer within the week, and finds Ian’s home a convenient place to dissect the body and base her investigation.

Here’s where the steamy part comes in to play. Ian, who had been deeply burned by his ex flame Morgana da Gigio, can’t help but feel attracted to his fake fianc e’s beauty, but he refuses to acknowledge the pull she exerts on his heart. Bianca is eager to try out the knowledge she has gleaned from her prostitute friends, and Morgana, the beautiful ex, is using her sexual powers to manipulate everyone within reach of her perfume.

As Bianca closes in on the killer, Ian struggles with the battle between his head and his heart. Though their compatibility in bed is undeniable, the two’s fragile bond is strained by the increasing dangers explosions, more murders, seductions, executions, seven giants, and a dwarf flush out the mystery.

While a few historical inaccuracies surface, the overall flow and quick pace, not to mention Jaffe’s charming characters and a few choice, steamy sections that should make you blush, make for a fine debut from a fresh new voice . Nancy R.E. O’Brien

Lover Boy


The rules: Two weeks before he intends to slowly and sad*istically kill his prey, Loverboy sends a collage of the future crime scene to the FBI.

If Loveboy lets her get that far.

The game: Imogen matches wits with a homicidal mastermind, a fiercely intelligent opponent. Armed with her extraordinarily keen sense for detection, she must do for Rosalind what could not be done for Loverboy s previous victims: save her life.
