Nancy Metz came out of a trailer park in Eugene, Oregon to create her own investment business. With her young brother settled, she wants no more commitment to anything or anyone and sells out to seek adventures in Venice.
Tom Makowska pulled himself out of the slums of Detroit into the Air Force and Special Ops. He's now a PhD and posted at an important European research institution. When he comes to Venice, he's still hurting from his ex-wife's betrayal and not looking for another relationship.
But when Tom and Nancy meet for their best friends' wedding in Venice, energy sizzles between them. He sees a strong, beautiful woman and likes sparring with her. She sees a nerdy hunk with a fascinating mix of alpha male and deep-seated insecurities. Now he wants more but wonders if he can compete with sophisticated Italian men. And now she wonders how to grab the pleasures of life and still hang on to her freedom.
Is it only lust? After Tom was devastated by another woman, can Nancy trust him to trust her?
Then disaster strikes, and things change.
A Matter of Trust is a love story of loss, survival and re-invention set in this gorgeous, whimsical city called The City of Love.
