The Story of X is a hauntingly beautiful tale of love and desire. It tells the story of Alexandra Beckmann, a somewhat inexperienced, young California girl on the trip of a lifetime to Italy. It also tells the story of Lord Marcus Roscarrick, a young, wealthy billionaire surrounded by an air of mystery. It is a story of passion and trust, mystery and pure eroticism. The characters are highly likeable, and the story is one that will linger in a reader’s mind long after the book is finished. It is one that this reader had great difficulty putting down, and one that will remain in my heart and mind for many months to come.
Alexandra Beckmann, known as X to her friends, has no idea what will happen when, on a trip to Italy to research the origins of the Mafia, a gorgeous Italian billionaire turns his attentions to her. He is the mysterious Lord Marc Roscarrick, well known throughout Italy, and yet still one of the most mystifying citizens in all of Naples. Marc and X engage in a brief but still vastly erotic romance, until they realize that they are falling in love. Mysteries from the past intrude in their lives, challenging both to discover a way to be together. In the pursuit of a long term relationship, if not permanent, Marc and X will both be tested and tried, and be forced to discover things about themselves that perhaps were not known before. This is a very highly erotic book, and one that will leave readers breathless in anticipation. Can Marc and X figure a way to be together? Can X learn to trust in herself enough to embrace the Mysteries of Dionysus? Come along to Italy and see for yourself.
Shy American student Alexandra Beckmann—‘X’ to her friends—arrives in Naples desperate for adventures beyond the sheltered life she has led. She is there to study the infamous Italian crime organization, the Camorra. But on the sun-soaked, ancient city streets, her research leads her to a man like no one else she has ever met.
Lord Marcus Xavier Roscarrick is an Italian aristocrat, irresistibly handsome with a mysterious past. Yet, underneath his smooth exterior, X senses a man who is well-acquainted with danger.
Soon they begin a passionate affair, and X is drawn into Roscarrick’s world of ancient secrets and sexual experimentation. A world she never dreamed existed. But as she falls ever more deeply under Roscarrick’s spell, X must decide whether she dares to submit entirely to this shadowy world of dark desire.
