Description

Rule-breaking Romance with Attitude and Authenticity

Chatelaine Grand Prize winning The Art of Enchantment is a beautifully written, evocative new adult (women's fiction) love story of art, history and passion set in Romantic Tuscany, about having the courage to answer the call of your true nature and finding family and home where you truly belong.


Ecstasy is the only thing on Clio's mind.

Specifically, ecstasy as portrayed in the Renaissance art of Italy. Clio is a shy art history doctoral student, clinging to her last chance at achieving the college degree of her father's dreams, when she meets fast-living, sexy Italian architect Guillermo.

They come from two different worlds, but share a deep passion for history and beauty.

Clio can't resist being drawn into Guillermo's problems when his family's beautiful ancestral villa is at risk of being sold to an American rap star who will carelessly destroy it's rich culture, history and artistry.

She tries to keep it professional and fights the urge to surrender to his smoldering seduction. Guillermo is exactly the type of man Clio's experience has taught her to avoid, and by getting involved with him and his villa, she stands to lose much more than her precious Ph.D.

Can Clio juggle her PhD thesis, a too-hot-to-handle romance, and rescue a priceless piece of history or will everything end in disaster?

Review quote

Want to read a book where the plot crafted in a way that has a grip on your heart, tears in your throat and laughter on your lips? Then this is the book for you. Who doesn't love romance, art history, and family? The plots twists and tension kept me reading well into the night. The Author M A Clarke Scott gives the reader a run for their money. And if you love Italian then you are in high heaven...The passion, literally and figuratively, in this book [have to read it to understand that statement best] is well written. Doesn't hurt a bit that strong realistic characters fill this novel from beginning to end. T Mattsen, Library Thing & Goodreads reviewer
