HIRED: THE ITALIAN'S BRIDE
HIRED: THE ITALIAN'S BRIDE (4) by Donna Alward: The arrival of hotelier Luca Fiori is like a whirlwind in the life of Mari Ross, the manager of his latest acquisition. Though Luca is very charming, Mari's determined to keep her head and remain in control of the situation. But her resolve doesn't last -- and neither does her initial indifference to Luca. Very drawn to each other despite past hurts, the two acknowledge their feelings, but Luca is sure he can't give Mari what she needs. Besides, his life is in Europe and hers is in Canada. A lovely setting, well-written characters and a completely believable conflict make for an engaging read.
