Dante Cellini, owner of Cellini Shipping, avoided long-term relationships. Becoming a shipping magnate was far more important; at least, it was until he saw Sophia working in a friend's café. Should he pursue the niece of his business partner and long-time friend? And can he open his heart enough for a lifetime with her?
Sophia Petrelli came to Florence to run from her past and seek out the uncle she never knew. When enigmatic Dante visits her uncle's café, her world turns upside down. Dante makes her feel safe and protected, but falling for him during their week together was never part of the plan. Will he want to stay when he learns the truth about her past?
