Secret Stories of  Love and Blood is an anthology of novellas of the author that despite their thematic diversity have unity regarding their gender. They are four works of romantic suspense with a historical base that take place in various time contexts and  in exotic places and with mythical backgrounds, exciting the curiosity while maintaining the intensity of the narration until the last page. These novellas are:

End of the Game in Venice:

A breathtaking thriller whose plot is littered with enigmatic keys. Ruthless struggle for possession of mineral wealth in Africa. A bloody rivalry of centuries between descendants of medieval Cathars and crusaders resurrected in the XXI century.

The action moves from the Seychelles Islands to Bombay, Carcassone and Montsegur in the Languedoc ending in Venice in the middle of the famous Carnival. A novel of suspense whose dizzying pace will keep you suspended in the air from the beginning.

Oasis of Light tells the story of a young man sent to a Nazi expedition to Tibet in search of the origin of the Aryan race under the sands of the Gobi desert and what he actually finds in these remote places.

The Challenge of the Legion

In the year 53 b.C. a Roman army is defeated in Asia Minor. A legion survives and settles in China. At the present time an Italian historian travels to unveil the mystery of the fate of those 10,000 men near the Gobi Desert. In that endeavor he finds the love of a Chinese Anthropologist but also the danger of dark interests that do not want their presence in the region. The quest  becomes a personal challenge.

I Ching and Crime

An old Chinese scholar living in Buenos Aires instructs a young niece and her boyfriend to interpret the I Ching (the Chinese oracle and book of wisdom).

In China a powerful drug dealer weaves a complex plot to oust his competitors from world markets from his new base in South America. The Chinese triads and the Japanese Yakuza get entangled in this complex weft.

For obscure reasons their actions seriously endanger the whole scholar´s family. I Ching guides them to face the threat. Vibrant thriller in its entirety.
