This was no cold marble – this was a man!’ Antonia goes to Tuscany to rebuild her life – the last thing she wants to do is fall in love, least of all with rich, arrogant, aristocratic Lorenzo.
Librarian Antonia Gray has fled England for northern Tuscany after an unhappy love affair, to work on the archive of a 17th century Italian explorer, member of a centuries-old aristocratic family. There she meets his descendent, Lorenzo Quattromani, rich, arrogant, handsome – and engaged to the beautiful and ruthless Giselle. The last thing Antonia wants is to fall in love, least of all with someone so dangerous. His engagement though is not what it seems and Lorenzo breaks down Antonia’s resistance – but Giselle has other ideas.
