Tess Daniels leaves her ailing mother's bedside and travels to Italy to find her younger sister, who has run off with a teenage boy. Rafe di Castelli is furious that his 16-year-old son has run off, and he and Tess join forces to find the duo. But Rafe finds that he can't entirely fault his son—he too is starting to recognize the allure of the Daniels women. In the Italian's Bed (2) by Anne Mather suffers from lackluster main characters and a colorless story. But there's an interesting cast of secondary characters and the story picks up at the end with some good conflict and emotion.
