Product Description

Product Description

To most people, princes, princesses, counts and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairytales. Crowns, priceless jewels and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams.
But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth.
For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country’s most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set.
I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status and masked balls, they are everything and more.
And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.


*Standalone Contemporary Romance

I've read all of Tillie Cole's books and find she always manages to create something different every time even though she tends to write using a raw, but lyical tone most of the time. However, A Veil of Vines is a touch more romantic, heavy on imagery and it presents readers with a modern fairytale feel. It's just beautiful, captivating and a magical page-turner.
In true Tillie fashion the book is well-written, the plot is tight and the rich characters are well-developed. The pacing is fast, the dialogue is excellent and Tillie's reflections are interesting, deep and thought provoking.
The storybook Italian setting in Umbria conjures up pictures from your childhood imaginings - picturesque cottage, rambling gardens, vivid colour, vineyards and sunny days. The conflict is, who we love and the three main characters are: Zeno, Caresa and Achille. The story unfolds with elements of tradition, duty, responsibilities and sacrifice versus freedom, love, hope and dreams. The story continues to twist, reveal and alter the predicted life courses of everyone in the narrative.
Although brought up in the US, Caresa is actually an Italian Duchess and as such, she must abide by the rules of her kind, including agreeing to an arranged marriage to the king-in-waiting of Savona, a well known womaniser. Enter the unexpected game changer, Achille, who Caresa falls madly and deeply in love with. He is a handsome and passionate man who lives life simply and freely.
I highly recommend this book to readers who love this genre or those who are fans of Tillie's work.

Tillie Cole has given us some of the darkest, most tormented souls. She has given us gut-wrenching anguish: heartache that lives on in us long after we've read the final page. But in A VEIL OF VINES she has more than sated our craving for romance with a story that offers up beauty, tranquility and serenity. The setting, the delicately layered characters, the threads of history and connection to nature all make this a book I'll think back on fondly, and often. No heartache this time though. Just blissful contentment.

If you're looking for a sweet, sappy, beautiful romance; this is definitely the book for you.
A fairytale romance of two of the most unlikely people to find love with one another.
Another great book from Tillie Cole.

Tillie has done it again... I was nervous at first. TC is my fave author, I adore her, her dark books are amazing and a thousand boy kisses was absolutely soul destroying, so I didn't know if TC could do fluffy.

Well... she can and she did it bloody well. This story is beyond beautiful, words can't describe how much I fell in love with Achille and Caresa. If you are new to Tillie Cole and are nervous to read her darker books this is the perfect place to start.

A different style of love story for Tillie, but one which I enjoyed very much. Her attention to detail is always appreciated and in this story, the love of wine making shines through. Hoping to hear more from the family, as someone else deserves a happy ending!

Ms Cole never ceases to amaze me with her talented and versatile writing. Her latest offering takes on the semblance of a fairytale conjuring up sublimely picturesque images. Not only did the beautifully described scenery take my breath away, but having had the pleasure of savouring Italy’s wine and its delicacies was like revisiting the regions of Umbria and Tuscany once again. I consider myself to be quite a knowledgeable wine drinker, so therefore you can imagine my surprise while reading the author’s detailed account of the traditional wine-making process which I might add, is extremely well told.

That being said, House of Savona where the protagonists’ make-believe story of aristocratic grandeur is narrated in modern day is just perhaps, not so inconsequential as we think. One has to live up to their titles and personal choices regarding future spouses are few and far between. Accepting her destiny, Caresa Acardi leaves her loved ones behind and starts her new life. For someone who’s used to having everything, I was delighted to see that there’s much more to her than what I’d had originally thought at the beginning of the story. Her love for the countryside and her outgoing personality bowled me over. She’s honest, curious and well aware that her place in such a tight-knit society is not up for discussion. Ah, but what meets the eye and what one wants to see is completely different. Rules of the heart are indisputably unquestionable!

"There is no need for false modesties, Caresa. I'm very much of the opinion that we should always say exactly what we think. In private, of course. We both have reputations to protect."

My first impression of Prince Zeno wasn't at all positive.
