Temptation in the Italian's arms...
The new mistress of her late uncle's estate, Aphra Betterton, longs to hide away and forget the man that betrayed her. So when handsome Santo Datini arrives - to make amends for his brother's duplicity - he's the last person Aphra wants to host!
Italian merchant Santo is on a secret mission that no beautiful, proud maiden will disrupt. But with their temptingly close quarters generating scandal, can Santo win Aphra's trust - and her heart! - in to the bargain?
Juliet Landon is a professional embroiderer and lecturer, whose two disciplines go perfectly hand in hand. When she's not doing one, she's doing the other, often both on the same day. Her stories develop in her mind while stitches form on the fabric, and the one that wins depends on urgency and inclination. Juliet has been nominated for the Romantic Fiction Writer's Award, and she currently has at least another hundred ideas waiting to be released in the future.
