Nine years ago, Noah Di Luca, youngest of the Di Luca boys, seemed to have it all. When Penelope Alonso scraped her way out of the ghettos and landed a plum internship with an interior designer in the area, she and Noah fell head over heels for each other. Then Noah’s secrets reared their ugly heads and he walked away, dumping Penelope without a word and leaving her devastated.
Now Penelope has returned, looking for answers to some of her own family questions since her mother died. She hopes she won’t recognized. She’s also hoping to avoid Noah. Of course neither hope lasts past checking in to her hotel and getting settled in. She doesn’t want to fall for him all over again and get her heart broken again. And he knows that just like last time, he can’t afford to let her anywhere near his dangerous secrets—secrets that could destroy the Di Lucas and their friends and allies.
