A BONAVERA NOVEL
Antonio DeLuca knows exactly what he wants in life.
Lucia Bonavera knows exactly what she doesn't.
Destiny has something completely different in mind for each of them.
Betrothed at birth but never having met, pragmatic innkeeper, Lucia, and sexy Italian architect, Antonio, consider their grandfathers' thirty-year-old marriage pact a meaningless relic. Neither had any interest in meeting the other, but when Antonio travels to the States on holiday, his grandfather blackmails him into visiting Lucia at her family's winery in the Virginia foothills, and when he does, their mutual disinterest is replaced by an unexpected, yet undeniable attraction.
When Antonio makes a decision that keeps him in the States indefinitely, Lucia decides she's tired of always playing things safe and follows her heart—straight into Antonio's welcoming arms. But Antonio has a secret, one that impacts Lucia as much as him. A secret that could destroy her trust in him forever.
