2014 Nancy Pearl Award Winner for Fiction.


Loosely based on the life of Jacques Casanova, The Secrets of Casanova is a rich, lush novel of love, sex, family, ambition, intrigue, and adventure. Set in Paris of 1755, Casanova's luck is fading and his past is shoving up against his present with potentially disastrous consequences. What price must he pay to uncover a treasure of inestimable value? What hearts must he break along the way? Casanova's will and destiny collide again and again in this riveting historical fiction that brings to light a man of great passion and not a few secrets.



Praise for The Secrets of Casanova



“A Shakespearean actor with a flair for the dramatic and a superb ear for dialogue, Michaels's debut novel puts a brilliantly original spin on an historical figure whose very name is a cliché. This Casanova must wrestle not only with falling hopelessly and passionately in love, but embarking on a mysterious quest that is as much a spiritual awakening as a swashbuckling adventure. The Secrets of Casanova is so erotic and so sensitively written, I found it difficult to believe its author was a man.” -Robin Maxwell, national best-selling author of The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn

My review:
4 stars
Copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tour for  an honest review.
When I started to read "The Secrets of Casanova" by Greg Michaels I thought I knew where the story was going and what it was about.  I definitely did not expect all the twist and turns.  This was a very interesting and fascinating novel and I was completely engrossed with Jacques Casanova.  The writing flowed as did the storyline. I was surprised to learn this was a debut novel. I really enjoyed this story and recommend it to anyone. This story has a little bit of everything! Fun read!
