Publication Day Celebration: Eloisa Style

On publication day, Eloisa was in Florence, Italy, where she lives each summer (as her husband is Italian). There she celebrated the release of Not that Duke with her family, and took many photos some of which she shares below.

One of the things her daughter Anna said: “This book is more about lust than love, which is not your usual, Mom,” is something some readers pointed out as well (as a positive thing!). Eloisa had to agree with Anna, though she was quick to point out that Not that Duke is still a love story — which Anna had to agree with also. What do you think?

All captions are Eloisa’s — Enjoy!
