When her brother's car plunges off a cliff with him and his fiancee in it, Amanda Davies gets the news personally from the fiancee's brother. The devastatingly handsome Italian businessman appears in Atlanta and whisks Amanda off to Italy to be with the hospitalized couple. But could his motive be more?
Nicholas de Frenza never approved of his sister's choice in husband to begin with, and now that Carita is in a coma due to her fiance's reckless driving, it seems the perfect time to resurrect an ancient Italian custom of revenge: the seduction calls for a similar seduction in return, a sister for a sister. But Nico is too civilized for such vengeance--or is he?
Even as Amanda falls for the Tuscan's charms, she knows his code and his family would never approve of her as more than a simple dalliance. But then the secret about the car wrack comes out--and that's when everything changes...
This was a good book that I could not put down. Once Amanda gets to Italy to see her brother after the car crash things take a turn that Amanda did not expect. Nicholas takes Amanda to his house against her wishes after visiting her brother in the hospital. She quickly finds out he gets his way no matter what. I give this book five stars for a great read.
