A romantic fantasy about love, art and the tarot by an engaging author of gothic romantic fiction.

“The Visconti Devils” by Ria Dimitra is now available in trade paperback and ebook formats.

Pittsburgh, PA – “The Visconti Devils,” Ria Dimitra’s exciting romantic novel inspired by the Visconti tarot, is now available in a new trade paperback edition from Aventine Press and for the first time in ebook format on Amazon Kindle.

“When I was doing research for my novel “Fiend Angelical,” I discovered that the Devil is the one card that is missing from all the Visconti tarot decks, the oldest tarot decks still in existence,” Dimitra says. “And I thought to myself that there was a story there somewhere.”

That story became the groundwork for “The Visconti Devils,” a tale of an artist searching for inspiration as she paints a new tarot deck, and the charming new curator at Yale’s Beinecke Library who walks into her life and steals her heart. Sometimes, even an angel can have a dark past.

Midwest Book Review calls “The Visconti Devils” “[a]n engaging and atmospheric novel of love, adventure, and the darker side of the search for creative inspiration.” Night Owl Romance rates it a Top Pick and says, “The world came alive and what was found was very unexpected and different from anything I’ve ever read.”

You can find “The Visconti Devils,” along with Dimitra’s other works, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers, or ask for it at your local bookstore. Follow Dimitra on Twitter @RiaDimitra or visit her blog at
