Back-cover blurb:

Intelligent, sensible Della Hadley should've known better than to embark on an affair with a playboy Italian six years her junior, but vibrant and sexy Carlo Rinucci was just too hard to resist....

Della knows that a fiery passion so quick to ignite should be fast to die out, despite Carlo's vow that their love is forever. But Carlo is Italian through and through, and determined to win his woman and make Della his bride before the sun sets on their affair.

Della is thirty-six years old. A big shot television producer with her own production company, a brilliant reputation and low expectations of men.

When she needs a serious expert to front her latest TV series her assistant comes up with Carlo Rinucci — a thirty year old, shaggy-haired archeologist with striking good looks and a wicked grin. Determined not to be misled by his youthful looks Della travels to Naples to assess him in person.

Exhilarating, passionate, charming, Carlos more than lives up to his promise — both professionally and personally. He is equally fascinated by Della and they swiftly plunge into an affair.

Despite his Jack-the-lad image, Carlos wants a forever relationship, whereas Della, seeing the age difference as a huge barrier to long-term happiness, can’t give him the commitment he craves.

But underneath Carlo’s boyish charm lies a steely core. For the first time in his life he finds himself having to fight for what he wants. Can Della dig into herself to find the same courage?

Lucy Gordon’s fast-paced romance novel is both sad and uplifting, A charming, emotional, lump-in-the-throat read which grips your attention right up to the final page. I strongly recommend it.
