This book was written in Lucca’s point of view as a reading companion to support the Luminara Series, to further develop the plot and give reasoning behind Lucca Caruso’s behaviour, thoughts, and actions.
The book was written after Lussuria: book one and L’amore: book two, and prior to publish of Luminoso: book four.
It has been carefully developed and scripted into the plot and storyline of Luminoso: book four to keep continuity. Therefore, it is recommended that Lussuria and L’amore are read first to understand the plot, backstory, characters, and progression of the story.
Originally when I planned the Luminara series I intended to write the first four books from Lexi’s point of view which will tell Lucca and Lexi’s story. The schedule of the books has now changed quite significantly because I was inundated with requests from readers and bloggers asking for Lucca’s Caruso’s point of view. I decided to give it a go.
I need to give special thanks to Rebecca. This book would not have been possible if it was not for the encouragement, patience, support, and enthusiasm from her. Rebecca, is an amazing book reviewer and blogger who has shown continued support and interest in this series from the first publish of Lussuria. Rebecca originally asked for Lucca Caruso’s first character interview to be published on her blog due to lots of interest from readers asking for it.
I had already started writing and developing Luminoso, but due to personal circumstances I had to have some time off this year. I thought writing Lucca’s point of view would be refreshing, a challenge and a good way to get me back into a routine with writing the series and break things up a little. And I was not wrong. I have had the most amazing time and experience writing this book.
One thing led to another. I found new inspiration and had numerous unravelling ideas going on in my mind with regards to the plot. I decided, along with my editors, to once again develop my writing and carefully incorporate Lucca’s interview into the plot of Luminoso, which will now be book four in the series.
Once I started writing this, I could not stop. Based on positive feedback, it was then I decided to rewrite the majority of Lussuria in Lucca Caruos’s words.
I always aimed to be exceptionally transparent from the initial onset and publish of Lussuria by mentioning that this would be an epic and intense series but subject to change at any given time. It is important to me to give you as much depth, flow, and structure as possible. I want to ensure that my readers understand the reasoning behind Lucca’s actions, his past, and his thoughts, and a book in his words covers this nicely.
By popular demand and by filling in the gaps, I have given you all insight into Lucca’s life and mind. I knew it would take a full-length novel to furnish my readers with depth, enough awareness, and details in his words to give you a vision of life through Lucca’s eyes. A journey into his heart, mind, and soul.
I then carefully put a lot of consideration into adding advance chapters from Luminoso at the end, again in Lucca’s words to give my readers some clues, and ideas on where the plot is going. There will be lots of twists and turns, so I would like to leave you with some thought provoking chapters.
The planned schedule of the books in this series can be found here:
I hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing this book.
Welcome to Lucca’s Lust. Lucca’s first point of view.
Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end. ~ Anne Louise Germaine de Staël-Holstein (1766-1817)
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ~ Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)
