A wonder-struck art school dropout and a disillusioned Italian bachelor have ten days in Florence to change their lives. After Samantha dropped out of art school to care for her grandmother, the two spent years planning a trip to Italy together… but now her grandmother is dead, and Samantha is left to pick up the pieces of her own life and dreams. She’ll start with Florence: stay at a charming countryside castle, study all the sculptures… and try not to get distracted by the sculpted jaw of her hosts’ dreamy—but definitely not interested—son. Edo has come home after six years, summoned to take the reins of the family’s bed & breakfast—a fate he’s dreaded most of his life. He’s not even home a day before his mother is pushing him to play tour guide for their current guest, a pretty girl who seems different from the tourists Edo remembers. As Florence begins to open Samantha’s heart, she opens Edo’s eyes to the city and home he’d forgotten how to love—but Samantha only has ten days in the country; will that be enough for them to build a future on?
I always get what I want. Every time. But not with her. The beautiful woman my father forced on me through our billion-dollar firm has curves that make me ache. Never in my short life did I imagine falling for her. Office romances are forbidden in my company. But she’s a rule breaker. I guess I am too, but no one knows that side of me. This single mother with brilliant business sense has a side hustle and still kicks ass at my firm daily. There’s no way in hell she’s giving in. No matter what I try. Not even when Valentine’s rolls around. And I pull out all the stops. Her denial has me needing her like I’ve never needed anyone else. Where this girl is concerned, I’m not asking for a friend. I’m asking for me. For today. Tomorrow. Forever.
She’s completely off limits, or so I’m told. My best friend’s little sister. Hot, curvy, and soon to be mine. And to say the least, she’s fiery mad. Her brother is willing to sell out their family business to me, and he’s right for doing it. I’m a billionaire. Hello. Little did I know that this beautiful vixen is about to jack my world up. There’s one trinket I want most in the world for my collection and guess who just bought it? Right. Her. But I’m down to play her games. I’ve got aces in my pocket waiting for the right moment to strike. And when I do, the prize I yearn for isn’t a shiny object. It’s my girl. She’s going to be upset to find herself sleeping with the enemy, but those tables will turn. I’m not after today or tomorrow, but forever.

A forbidden auction… Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he’s the only kindness in a brutal underworld. Except he’s playing a deeper game than I know. Every move brings us together, every secret rips us apart. And when the final piece is played, only one of us can be left standing.

Building an empire comes first. Or it did until I met her. My family’s billion-dollar hotel chain has been my life for as long as I can remember. Travel. Women. Wealth.

I would have felt the same, but something about her has me pacing the floor at night. And my father sent me out to her hotel specifically. The sly dog knowing that she’s exactly the woman I need in my future. But it’s not that easy. It never is. Not until our love produces a little one. Then everything changes. Especially me. Now I want more than just one night. I want forever.

There are so many cracks, I can’t let him get too close. But for some reason when I’m with him, I feel something other than numb. And I’m starting to believe that he would do anything for me…if I let him. Even fall for me.
