Felicity Conlon can't believe she gave in to a powerful attraction and slept with her nemesis, Luca Santanno. Luca wants to keep Felicity in his bed, so when a picture of him and his newly married former lover appears in the newspapers, Luca strikes The Italian's Marriage Bargain (3) with Felicity. She'll get financial security for her family and an affair with him in exchange for saving his family from shame. Carol Marinelli's marriage-of-convenience story strikes all the right chords. It has passion, intensity and emotion, though the hero is too naïve and the heroine plays the injured party too well.
