ITALIAN TYCOON, SECRET SON
ITALIAN TYCOON, SECRET SON (4) by Lucy Gordon: Two years ago, researcher Mandy Jenkins met Renzo Ruffini on a climbing expedition in the Alps. A brief, intense affair was followed by tragedy, and Mandy believes Renzo is dead. So finding him is miraculous -- but he's changed. Suffering from memory lapses, he's become a driven businessman with little else in his life. Rediscovering Mandy -- and learning he has a son -- means a lot to Renzo, but he's not sure he can be a good husband and father. A solid plot, multifaceted characters and a truly touching central situation add up to a strong story. There's plenty of humor to balance things out too.
