Introducing A Tuscan Legacy and Solo Tu plus #Giveaway | Narelle Atkins



By Narelle Atkins  @Narelle Atkins

I'm thrilled to introduce my tenth book - Solo Tu: Only You - Book 7 in A Tuscan Legacy - a contemporary Christian romance novella series spanning three continents.

I've always wanted to write a book for a continuity series that has shared characters and a connected story world.

A Tuscan Legacy is the brainchild of my author friends Marion Ueckermann and Autumn Macarthur. I was delighted to accept their offer when they asked me to join them in their journey to write an indie novella series based in Tuscany.

The series has an overarching family mystery plot that links all the books together. I've loved working with my authors friends in the group who live in England, South Africa and USA.

Here's the video trailer introducing A Tuscan Legacy:




We're excited that Book 1 - That's Amore by Marion Ueckermann - is releasing next week on Tuesday April 17!

Let me share Solo Tu with you and introduce you to my characters - Sienna Rossi and Dave Maxwell.

If you read A Tuscan Legacy series from start to finish, you'll meet Sienna in That's Amore (Book 1) and Ti Amo (Book 4) before journeying to Sydney, Australia for Book 7.




Home means everything to Sienna Rossi.

Four years ago, Sienna defied her father by moving to Australia to obtain her teaching qualifications. Her grand plan is shaken by her father’s unexpected death and a trip back to Tuscany for her grandmother’s eightieth birthday where she renews her close bond with her sister, Alessa.

Teacher Dave Maxwell likes the freedom of his nomadic lifestyle. He works contract-to-contract, moving to different high schools around Australia. He’s in Sydney for a season, caring for his grandma while his aunt is on an extended overseas vacation.

Back in Sydney, Sienna moves in with her Aussie cousins and starts her first teaching job, torn between her dream for a future in Australia and her longing for home. Sienna and Dave work at the same school, attend the same church, and quickly become friends. They are drawn together by circumstances and an undeniable attraction.

But their idyllic time together is temporary. Can the girl from Tuscany and the boy from Australia risk everything for love?

  1. The entire series is preordered, even though I have been. Lesser with a few ARC copies. This is a delightful story and romanc idea. Especially the motif that is carried through all 9 books. As a world travel and having international roots, I like that the story takes place on several continents. Travel the world without a passport. Best wishes. Looking forward to your books. Thanks for exceptional low pricing. Most series sellfor $2.99 per book.

    1. Hi Oma, Thank you for your support of the series :) I've always liked the idea of rewarding loyal readers by offering a special pre-order price. The reader doesn't need to make the difficult decision to either buy the ebook now, at full price, or wait a few months and see if the ebook goes on sale. If only we all had an unlimited budget for books!

  3. Hi Narelle,
    I'm so excited for this series to come out! I love everything about it! I'm part Italian and so this has a real draw for me. I know some of these aren't set in Italy, but that's okay. The whole story-line is fascinating to me! Thanks for being a part of this!

    1. Hi Marylin, I love your enthusiasm for A Tuscan Legacy :) There's definitely an Italian influence in Solo Tu because Sienna grew up in Tuscany. Although, the longer she stays in Australia, the more Aussie she seems to become, lol.
