At the age of twenty six, her life is about to change. Her mental filing system will transcend into overdrive when she encounters a tall, dark, handsome stranger who’s painstakingly gorgeous and infectious.

He’s a wealthy business man and a very generous one.  An ‘Italian God’ by the name of Lucca Caruso with the most mesmerising crystal azure blue eyes and heart of gold.

Never expecting to see him again after their chance meeting, fate intervenes again.

Whilst on vacation to a Tuscan cooking course in a Villa in Val D’Orcia near the Chianti hills outside of Florence with her eccentric and energetic best friend Hazel, she is more than surprised to see Lucca Caruso arrive at the very same villa.

For someone who has never known the feelings of lust or desire, Lexi suddenly finds herself thrown into a scenario which she has never before encountered.

Beginning a journey of self-discovery and the exploration of old and new uncertainties she’s helplessly folding, melting and crumbling to the temptation of her heart’s desire.

As Lexi struggles to confide in Lucca and his family, she is unaware that her past is propelling towards her.

What will happen if the Caruso family finds out the truth?  Will this mean the end of any chance of happiness for Lexi or will Lucca show her how to be loved, how to feel special and protected?

In an emotional erotic heart-wrenching story of lust, love and light with mystery, twists and turns Lexi discovers an insatiable appetite for Lucca Caruso.

It’s hot, sexy, expressive and an intriguing story of survival. One woman’s destiny to find her light and there’s only one man that can take her there.

Only after she learns how to lust and love will she spread her wings towards the light, his light…or will she?

Prepare for a bereft love-struck book hangover for the handsome, wealthy, protective and insatiable Italian lover Lucca Caruso. Ultimately he is a gentle lover and he is a raucous lover, he’s the man that we all want and can’t get enough of.

Welcome to the Luminara Series…..



When I saw your eyes filled with dread and fear, my heart nearly stopped, I thought I would lose you, I need you and want nothing more, please trust me Doc, I ….I love you, I love you Dolcezza.”

He claims my mouth with profound longing and as soon as our lips meet the chemistry and energy ignites a burning desire deep in my soul and heart. My body submits to him with his sensitive words.

I’ve folded yet again!

Another tidal wave of water is flooding from my eyes cascading down my cheeks, he has me…

“You love me?” my voice is breaking, my eyes weeping.

“Yes, I love you; I’m very much in love with you. You are mine forever and my something special baby.”

My body and mind become weak. I stare into his wide wet azure blue eyes,

“Lucca I…….I don’t know what to say.”

“Then don’t, write it in your journal.”

With these words we melt into each other, passionately kissing in a tight embrace filled with love and traces of uncertain fear.

Lussuria – Book 1 of The Luminara Series




About the Author


SJ Molloy, first time British Author of ‘The Luminara Series’ was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a young child, her family moved and raised her in Lanarkshire, Scotland where she currently resides with her husband, two daughters and her energetic, hyperactive loving gun dog who is utterly spoiled.

SJ is a qualified Fitness Instructor and Health & Fitness Motivator of various fitness styles and disciplines. Music and dance aerobics have always been a pleasure and passion for her. SJ will sporadically make up dance style routines at any hour of the day when a move comes to her or piece of music moves or inspires her.  Currently not teaching classes she is focusing her time into nurturing her yearning passion for creative writing, exchanging one visualisation for another.

As a child, SJ loved to write in journals and make up short stories and has a flare for all things creative. With an overactive imagination at times, SJ adores to make notes, visualise scenes and settings to create characterisations.

While on holiday with her family one summer reading book after book, she had a flash of inspiration and has had various ideas whirling around in her mind ever since. It was not until she pulled back on teaching classes that she found the courage, time and insight into actually bringing these ideas to life.

In February 2013 she decided to bring that imagination to light by beginning her writing  journey with ‘Lussuria’ the first instalment in ‘The Luminara Series’ available from late October 2013.

Being a self-confessed book junkie, she loves nothing better than to get lost in an emotional and moving book. A true romantic at heart, her guilty pleasure is reading heart-warming, passionate stories and falling in love with her favourite fictional characters.

With five books already mapped out in ‘The Luminara Series’, SJ’s busy creative mind has already planned two more fictitious novels, both stand-alone romance books and very different in their own right.

When she is not writing or reading, spending time with family and friends or exercising and walking her dog, SJ loves all things practical and creative. Dancing, music, cooking, travelling, good food and wine and painting are her favourite past times along with laughter, lots and lots of laughter.
