Under one roof, they’re destined to fall under love’s spell.
Gina Thomas knows she can’t possibly afford the upkeep on the ancient, Tuscan ex-convent her great-aunt left her in her will. But she has a plan. Haul her luggage and art supplies into an abandoned room, paint her heart out, and hopefully make enough money for repairs.
She wishes now she’d taken the time to translate all of the letter informing her of her dubious windfall. Apparently the arrogant Adonis who’s having workmen dig up the courtyard is Sebastian D’Avanzo, a distant cousin who owns exactly half of this stone heap—and according to the terms of the will, neither of them can sell.
They’re stuck with each other.
Yet as they butt heads over how to resurrect Santa Lucia to its former and future glory, the beauty of the Italian countryside begins to weave its spell. And love begins to build a delicate bridge between the fiercely independent artist and the wickedly infuriating architect.

Her heart isn’t part of the deal…and therein lies the problem.
Between the County General ear, nose and throat department moving to a new facility and constantly cleaning up after an inept student nurse, Abigail Pointer has her hands full.
At least her life plan is on track. She’s in line to be promoted soon, and in due course she and her fiancé, Rupert, will walk down the aisle and start a family in her inherited stone cottage. Her future looks quiet, predictable, safe. If it’s a bit lacking in the romance department, who is she to complain?
The new surgical consultant on the ward, Greg Lincoln, is certainly shaking things up—and shaking her composure when a puddle of spilled milk sends both her and Dr. Tall, Dark and American landing in a tangled heap.
From that moment, Greg is a pain in Abigail’s well-ordered routine…and a breath-taking monkey-wrench in her plan to settle for a less-than-exciting life. Especially when she begins to suspect her nice, safe engagement is on shaky ground.
