Angel Boy by Annalisa Russo #Historical #Romance


GENRE: Historical Romance (20th Century)

perf5.000x8.000.inddPrivate Investigator Meg Cavelli wonders why her traitorous family has trotted out the fatted calf for Seth Truitt, the boy who left her flat eight years ago. Now he’s back, sexier than she remembers, and needs her help. How can Meg accept Seth’s no-strings-attached deal in return for bringing a deranged predator to justice, when their steamy attraction to each other might very well get in the way?

Army Air Corps pilot Seth Truitt needs help to erase his dark-stained past, but soon realizes helping Meg Cavelli solve a dogged criminal case in return for salvaging his military career might be more dangerous than flying P-26 fighters for USAAC. But since Seth has no intention of letting Meg go again, he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe from the twisted, unnatural threat they dubbed “the monster” as kids.

As the mystery unfolds, joining their minds and hearts might be the only way to stay alive.



Seth Truitt stood on the street in front of the only home he remembered. The autumnal drizzle of mid-October wet his thick mop of brown hair and plastered the starched shirt of his uniform against his skin. He turned back, grabbed his leather flight jacket and small duffel bag off the back seat, and paid the Yellow Cab hackie.

As the cab sped away he let the sight of Bellaluna sink in, soothe.

Bellaluna, beautiful moon in Italian, the ancestral home of the Cavelli family—people who took him in—raised him really—a place for family, for love, and now for sanctuary, he thought.

His Army Air Corps-issued boots crunched gravel underfoot on the long walk to the back yard. The overspent blooms of summer stretched proudly upward from terra cotta pots set on the flagstone portico. Faith’s attempt at a green thumb—his sister, Doctor Faith Cavelli now, and only living blood relative.

Two automobiles were parked out front. One vehicle he hadn’t recognized—a snazzy, brand-new Buick Coupe in hot red. Maybe from Gabriel Cavelli’s auto and motorbike collection. Gabe…one of his titulary uncles.

The three Cavelli brothers: Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, named after the archangels by their overly optimistic mother; Michael, proverbial head of the family, shrewd, astute businessman; Raphael, globe-trotting archaeologist, now curator of the Field Museum; and Gabriel, confrontational, Harley-riding badass, self-made entrepreneur.

He wasn’t related to any of them by blood… but he was by heart, by love.

    How did you come to decide to chronicle the lives of Italian immigrants in the ’20s & ’30s? Are any of your characters based on family reminiscences?

    • Thanks for your interest, Margaret. Yes, in the 1920’s both my grandmother and grandfather came to this country from the hills of Tuscany. Like many other Italians from the same region of Italy, they settled in the Chicago area . I also grew up in a family of five siblings, like the Cavellis, and while none of the characters in my novels are based on actual people from my past, the culture and the importance of family is the core story in all my novels. Again, thanks for the interest in the Cavelli Angel Saga…Annalisa

    Do you have a writing nook or special place to write in or will any place do? Thank you.

    • I have a computer desk, 3 bookcases, and a file cabinet. I try to keep it neat and everything in its place, but when I write, things tend to get pretty mess. I have to clean it up again before I start writing for the day—my OCD personality.

  5. Thanks for a great Tour!
