Lady Georgina Darkly, the newly titled Duchess of Pemberton, did not need one more thing to deal with the week before Christmas. The temperature was dropping alarmingly, a snow storm had been predicted, the milk tanks in the dairy were close to freezing and there was a leak in her bedroom roof. To top it all off Clarabelle, the cow that had a mischievous streak a mile wide, had escaped the confines of the barn and could very well freeze to death if Georgie didn’t find her soon. The absolute very last thing she needed was an arrogant, stubborn, wealthy, and undeniably gorgeous Italian to turn up on her doorstep in need of rescuing.
Leonardo Ricci, youngest son of one of Italy’s wealthiest families did not want to be stuck in the middle of a snow storm in a country barely more than the size of a postage stamp. He wanted to be with his friends in Milan, not suffering through a stilted family Christmas with his parents. When a cow appeared in the middle of the road and caused his beautiful Ferrari to careen out of control into a snow bank, he honestly didn’t think his day could get any worse…and then he met the Duchess. She was opinionated, stubborn, far too capable for her own good, stunningly beautiful, and immune to his charms. They had nothing in common and if she hadn’t rescued him then he probably would never have given her another thought. But then they got stuck together in her run-down mansion with no electricity and no phones. That’s when the sparks really started to fly.
