A mistaken identity…
…a proposal that changes everything!
Photographer Gianna is done with men. Retreating to her villa on the shore of Lake Como, Gianna is stunned to find gorgeous Dario renting her house! When Dario is mistaken for her long-gone fiancé, they realize a fake engagement could solve problems for them both. Pretending to be in love should be easy, but what happens when very real feelings start to grow?
The pounding of her heart echoed in her ears.
An intruder in these parts was quite unheard of. In the village of Gemma, everyone knew your name. That was one of the many charms that convinced Gianna to keep her grandmother’s villa. But this man’s deep voice was unfamiliar to her. Who was he? And what was he doing in her house?
Gianna had to do something to defend herself. She visually searched for a weapon, finding one on the stove. Her fingers wrapped around the handle of a heavy cast-iron skillet. It could definitely do some damage.
Swinging the pan up over her head, she turned. “You better leave. Now.”
The man’s dark eyes widened. His gaze moved upward to the heavy pan in her hands. He stood his ground. Then his gaze returned to meet hers.
“I’m not going anywhere.”
She didn’t know whether to be afraid of him or utterly frustrated. “Then I’m ringing the polizia.”
“You do realize you’ll have to put down the pan before you can phone anyone?” His eyes twinkled with amusement.
She glared at him. This wasn’t funny. He was supposed to be intimidated. Not amused.
