by Sarah Morgan, author of An Invitation to Sin (Harlequin Presents Sicily’s Corretti Dynasty series)
I love writing a ‘Bad Boy’ hero. I also love writing a ‘Bad Girl’ heroine. I’ve never put them in the same book – until now!
Taylor Carmichael is trying to leave her past behind. She has reinvented herself so the last thing she needs is to find herself entangled with a man who couldn’t care less what the world thinks of him. When sexy Luca Corretti’s careless actions threaten to tarnish her new squeaky clean image, she takes control and before he knows what has hit him, commitment phobic Luca is ‘engaged’.
I laughed the whole time I wrote this book. Authors aren’t supposed to have favorite books, but between you and me (and for goodness sake don’t tell anyone), if I did have a favorite book, it just might be this one. Of course this story has all the elements we Harlequin Presents addicts love – the strong alpha hero, the glamour and emotional intensity all played out against the background of the stunning, beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily, but what I loved most about this book was the way Luca protected Taylor. He’s alpha right through to his core – a man who has never put himself out for a woman in his life before, but he does it for her and their love story, their journey, is one of my favorites. I love him. I hope you’ll love him, too.
What makes a book special for you? What does it take for a book to go on your ‘keeper’ shelf? Is it the characters? Does it have to make you laugh? Cry? Sigh with happiness? Let me know.
I promise I won’t tell anyone.
About the Book
Taylor Carmichael holds one thing precious: the reputation she’s spent years rebuilding. Then one encounter with Corretti lothario Luca, a bottle of chilled champagne and a skintight dress and the paparazzi have their shot.
Cool, calm and irritatingly aloof, Luca couldn’t care less. Splash his face over the papers—he has bigger fish to fry. But Taylor is fuming. Luca had the chance to halt the press and refused. Well, this time she’ll make the headlines work for her:
Stop the press—bad boy Luca Corretti to wed screen siren Taylor Carmichael!
