On a business trip in France, wine buyer Rachel Valentine meets vintner Luc Chartier. Attraction flares, and Rachel engages in an uncharacteristic one-night fling. In the morning, she accidentally learns a terrible secret about her lover's past and returns to the United Kingdom without seeing him. Mending fences with her twin sister and leaving the family's Bella Lucia restaurant occupy Rachel completely -- until she realizes she's pregnant. Telling Luc yields an unanticipated result! Rebecca Winters begins The Brides of Bella Lucia with Having the Frenchman's Baby (4), a touching, well-plotted story with an appealing hero.
