A glorious sun-drenched romance set in the Italian Lakes.  Once again Darcie Boleyn has taken me on a journey; a journey of emotions with the characters and a journey around the beautiful, picturesque setting of the Italian Lakes.

Sophia Bertoni makes a startling discovery and realises she isn’t quite effected by the discovery as she ought to be.  Sophia has been living the same daily ritual for a good while; concentrating on her career her personal life has taken a back step.  This discovery makes her think twice about her life and she decides to get away from it all and visit her Nonna in Italy.  Leaving her high pressured job and ex behind looking for rest for her heart, mind and body and hoping for inspiration.

Sophia’s mind was definitely ‘off’ men until she stumbles across Joe Lancaster.  Joe Lancaster, a fellow Brit, who is staying in the same village as Sophia’s Nonna.  Joe is also inbetween jobs and with complications at home and heartbreak in his past he’s also looking for a light or a sign regarding his future.  His sign and light comes from the connection he felt when his eyes met Sophia’s dark eyes.  Sophia also felt an instant attraction with the depths of Joe’s emerald eyes drawing her in to a handsome face and she couldn’t shy away from his kind demeanour.

A friendship developed between the pair however, Sophia and Joe were soon quarrelling with their own conscience over the ever growing emotions they were feeling for each other.  Should they enjoy the here and now and not worry about what the future may hold?

Whilst Sophia is staying with her Nonna she unearths a secret that will send repercussions through her family heritage and could break her family apart.

A wonderful journey of self-discovery, a journey of new beginnings, a journey of discovering new beauties all around the Italian Lakes.

A woman to unlock his heart?

The last time brooding Italian surgeon Luca Montovano saw bubbly heiress Francesca Martinelli was at his best friend’s failed wedding. Sparks flew then, and now she’s made a surprise appearance at his mountaintop clinic, bringing a much-needed whirlwind of laughter!

Aristocratic Luca just wants to be left alone to care for his orphaned niece. The scars on his face reach right to his heart, and he’s learned to push people away. Until Fran forces him to see the world through her eyes!

A gorgeous romance to set your heart a flutter in the beautiful Italian hillsides.

Fran was currently over in Italy as one of the bridesmaids for her best friends society wedding. Fran was left with a dilemma after seeing the groom-to-be in a very friendly embrace with one of the other bridesmaids. Does she reveal the truth and break the heart of her best friend?

Not only was Fran in Italy for the wedding but she was also due to spend the summer at a new Medical Clinic hoping to introduce her Canny Canine dogs to a teenage paraplegic girl.

Luca Montovana was pounding all his energy and money into building the clinic in Mont di Mare. He wanted to build a rehab place of respite and care for severely disabled teenagers. Following the terrible tragedy in his family that caused the death of four members of his family he is now the sole carer of his niece Pia, who had been left paralyzed from the waist down. Luca was still left physically and mentally scarred from this tragedy and was tirelessly working 24/7 to bring any help he can to his niece and others in a similar situation.

When Fran arrived at the Medical Clinic at Mont di Mare she didn’t expect to see one of the wedding guests and for him to be the proprietor of the clinic and now her new boss. Tempers and personalities flared on arrival at the clinic and Luca was very dubious as to how Fran’s dogs could help his niece. As a trained physiotherapist and dog handler Fran knew she had a difficult task ahead but she had full faith in her dogs’ abilities.

Canny Canines were not only helping the disabled but were also bringing a brightness and lightness to the temperament of Luca who at times felt like he had the world upon his shoulders.

Chemistry soon started sizzling between Fran and Luca but as her time at the clinic was only a temporary situation can the pair let love in even for a short time?

A gorgeous romance with a story giving hope, belief and warmth.
