Carlo Francotti was a hunter, and Karen Parker had the disturbing feeling that she was his prey. There was no mistaking the invitation in his eyes, and the challenge. Passion seemed to sparkle from him like the sun shattering off the Grand Canal; it was as if she were the passenger in one of Venice's ornate gondolas and he the gondolier, guiding her with easy insouciance ever deeper into the dazzling maze of Italian society.
