In one of Rome’s trendiest caffè’s, Bianca comes to dance, and escape the loneliness that haunts her world. For many weeks she's been watching a special man, a handsome, charming stranger who dances, flirts, and leaves alone. Bianca is not anxious to fall in love, and yet…. Something about the enigmatic Stefano has captivated her heart, and she is drawn to him in spite of herself. When she finally gathers her courage to ask him to dance, little does she know her entire world is about to change.
FIVE stars: The music by Patrizio Buanne that inspired this story is only part of what is a fabulous tale. Bianca loves to dance; she often makes her way to a particular café to indulge her passion for dancing and music. Although she spends her evenings with myriad dance partners, there is one particular man who has caught her eye. Stefano is a rare man. He is a True Gent. He arrives, dances and leaves. Always alone. When Bianca (finally) summons up the courage to actually talk to Stefano, and then to ask him to dance, the result is amazing. As though they are two halves of the same soul, something special and unique happens between them both on and off the dance floor… Denyse creates characters that are real; the story is enjoyable and has enough romance and fantasy to stir the heartstrings of the most cynical reader. It is tempered with enough realism to make it totally believable. This *really could* happen to you. It is a charming story of romance and the trust that is required between two people embarking on a life changing relationship. A fantastic read, I recommend an hour on the sofa with a latte, and allow yourself to be transported to the magic and romance that is Italia!

FIVE Stars: This is a lovely story inspired by the music of the incredibly talented Patrizio Buanne. Denyse has written a magical romance around Patrizio's song Bella Bella Signorina. She has captured the mood of the song with her excellent narrative which carries you along, breathless, until the final pages when...... well, you'll have to read it yourselves to find out what happens! A beautifully written story. I look forward to many more.
