From the Boathouse Grill in New York City to the streets of Rome, to the mountain town of Montefalco in Umbria, Cara McGuire understands her life will never be the same. She has laughed more, cried more, and had more sex in the past few weeks than she has had in the past few years. But Cara, whose ex-fiancé stood her up in Italy, reminds herself that her fantasy romance with Vittore Falco will end when she returns to the United States.
Unknown to Cara, Vittore, the most eligible bachelor in Italy, has formulated a plan of his own, a plan that goes beyond his silk shirts and limousines—a plan that is central to his desire for Cara to remain in Italy. He knows too well that “in Rome they try to steal your money, in Montefalco they will steal your birthright.” In Montefalco, the real Vittore emerges, and Cara fears being betrayed and forgotten. It propels her into a situation that jeopardizes her stay as she faces possible deportation.
Cara has always had a natural talent of “landing in it,” and she has certainly done so now. She gets wrapped up emotionally with Vittore’s family, and the pain of leaving all of them is heartbreaking. When Vittore’s father reveals Vittore’s secret, she is ready to run and not look back. Only divine intervention can make her change her mind.
