Publisher's Summary

American artist Joseph Hannigan and his alluring sister, Sophie, have arrived in enchanting nineteenth-century Venice with a single-minded goal. The twins, who have fled scandal in New York, are determined to break into Venice's expatriate set and find a wealthy patron to support Joseph's work.

But the enigmatic Hannigans are not the only ones with a secret agenda. Joseph's talent soon attracts the attention of the magnificent Odilé Leon, a celebrated courtesan and muse who has inspired many artists to greatness. But her inspiration comes with a devastatingly steep price.

As Joseph falls under the courtesan's spell, Sophie joins forces with Nicholas Dane, the one man who knows Odilé's dark secret, and her sworn enemy. When the seductive muse offers Joseph the path to eternal fame, the twins must decide who to believe - and just how much they are willing to sacrifice for fame.

    Story
    "More gothic romance than historical fiction"
    Would you listen to Inamorata again? Why?

    I enjoyed this book. The novel is set in Venice sometime around turn of the 19th century. The supernatural element is central to the story but an "impossible" romance is also involved. There are moderate doses of "corset unlacing" and lifting of chemises---nothing too graphic and certainly appropriate within the context of the story. I could certainly stand listening to it again for its entertainment value.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed the twins....and the "creature"; I believed she had incredible potential which was not fully exploited by the author.


    Which character – as performed by David deVries – was your favorite?

    The "creature" was wonderfully performed.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is well written and very entertaining. I enjoyed it....I do like period pieces, don't mind the supernatural and love anything that has to do with Venice. The city becomes another character in this story and it is the perfect setting for it. There are echoes of Anne Rice here. But this is not historical fiction. If you liked Anne Rice when Lestat was her hero and her witches were running around New Orleans you will enjoy this "Lite" version.

    Story
    "Good story, good writing, good narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator did a good job with all of the characters voices (with the exception of a guy I believe was supposed to be German but sounded like a good ole boy from America - but he is a very minor side character).


    Would you recommend Inamorata to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. Its not great literature but it is an interesting story and the overall feel of the book and writing is of beauty tinged with darkness.

    Story
    "Really disturbing"
    Would you try another book from Megan Chance and/or David deVries?

    Probably not, but the narrator did okay.


    What was most disappointing about Megan Chance’s story?

    [Spoilers}

    I wish I'd known this was quite as disturbing as it is. Themes of incest, child abuse, sex and dead bodies. A bit too dark for my taste.
