Praise for The Secrets of Casanova

'A Shakespearean actor with a flair for the dramatic and a superb ear for dialogue, Michaels's debut novel puts a brilliantly original spin on an historical figure whose very name is a cliche. This Casanova must wrestle not only with falling hopelessly and passionately in love, but embarking on a mysterious quest that is as much a spiritual awakening as a swashbuckling adventure. The Secrets of Casanova is so erotic and so sensitively written, I found it difficult to believe its author was a man.' -Robin Maxwell, national best-selling author of The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn

A pleasant read, The Secrets of Casanova proves to be a tantalizing tale of mystery, romance, and all the things you associate with the name Casanova. Set in 1755 Paris, this tale follows the story of Jacques Casanova - an adventurer of unredeemed reputation with a grand appetite for pleasure. 

The world is beginning to change in 1755 however, and the opportunities, and luck, are beginning to fade as the shift of power between men and religions. Thus, Jacques finds himself stuck at the center of a mystery with out a care whether he's led along by his vices or virtues as long as he finds the treasure at the end.

Michaels's writing is easy to read and very captivating. Mystery and Casanova lovers should definitely give this book a read.
