12 days...10...ports...1 soul searing kiss that will change her life.
Lily is free. Free from home. Free from work and everything she built the last eight years. And she's scared to death. With her half of the Etsy business sold, Lily is persuaded by Maddie to take advantage of her windfall and go on a cruise around Italy, explore new possibilities, and meet new people, especially the male kind. Feeling as unstable as the waves rolling beneath the ship, Lily is reluctant to agree to a romantic flirtation, even with a man as intriguing as Zander.
The cruise is supposed to be a fresh start for Zander and an opportunity to expand his freelance photography business. It also marks the one year anniversary of his fiancée's death. All he's interested in gaining from the experience is a larger portfolio, but finds himself irresistibly drawn to Lily, who looks nearly as lost as he feels.
A cruise ship romance couldn't possibly last, and yet how can Lily and Zander resist falling in love in the most romantic country on earth?

This is a great addition to the Destined for Love series. It is a sweet romance between Lilly and Zander they have such chemistry. I like the picturesque scenes and what better setting for romance than a cruise vacation in Italy. It is written so well I felt like I was part of the group. I enjoyed reading and look forward to reading the next book.
I really enjoyed this book. A light, sweet and clean romantic novel set in Italy, with beautifully described scenery and sweet characters. There is just enough character development of the main characters for you to get a little bit emotionally invested in the outcome for them, and enough development of the supporting characters that you hope another book or two might be written starring them. A lovely weekend read that will put you in a good mood, with just enough meat to leave you satisfied.
Workaholic Lily has decided to try something new. Learning how to relax. An Impulse decision to take a cruise, sends her on the biggest adventure in her life. Falling in love. Locations of beauty, are as exotic as the romance is sultry, but the underlying sweet simplicity is what steers this tempting escapade on a voyage of the heart.
Can you fall in love in 12 days? Lily is starting over--completely!! She's sold her share of a business she ran for 8 years, and is taking a 12 day cruise through Italy before she decides where she's going to live and what she's going to do career wise. Zander is using the cruise for a fresh start and to help his photography business. The night before the cruise Lily and her best friend, Maddie, go to a nightclub in Paris, where Lily meets Zander. They dance and seem to hit it off, but when Lily tries to kiss him he turns away. Who does Lily meet her first day aboard the cruise ship? Yes, it's Zander, and she's so humiliated she wants to avoid him, but Maddie won't let her. So Lily, Maddie, Zander and his friend, Connor start hanging out and going on the tours at each of the stops. Lily eventually finds out why Zander wouldn't kiss her. Zander is such a gentleman and completely swoon worthy. Reading the book was like going on a mini-tour of Italy with Lily, Zander, Maddie and Connor. I liked how Lily and Zander got to know each other and didn't kiss until almost the end of the cruise. This is the second book I've read in the Destined for Love Romance series and I've liked both of them. This is a clean read with just some kisses near the end. This is the first book I've read by this author but I think I'll read more from her.
