"This is what a love story should be." - RT Book Reviews

He's lured her back. Will she take the bait?

He believed their passion could never fade. Yet it's a year since Matteo De Laurentis lived with his gorgeous, talented, obstinate wife. Angela insists they're mismatched, but Matteo refuses to give up the only woman he'll ever love. Italy's sexiest leading man is determined to get his wife back. By whatever means necessary.  

Angela is desperate to avoid working on this film with the handsome, charismatic actor-turned-director who happens to be her estranged husband. It was a mistake ever to think she could hold her own in his glamorous world. But now she's trapped in Venice, unable to escape the one man who turns her brain to mush and her body to a blaze of passion.  

Is Matteo taking revenge to a whole new level, taunting her with everything she's given up? Or is this seductive torture as difficult for him as it is for her? She can only pray he never discovers her secret weakness - that she's still desperately in love with him.
