Carly Mason is a workaholic and proud of it. Her design business is a success and she made it happen on her own. Relationships are a different story. Dealing with her mother and sisters’ love lives is enough to turn anyone off, and Carly vows to never follow in their footsteps. However, some vows are meant to be broken.
Marco Valente is a confirmed bachelor. Being a hotel mogul leaves little room for relationships anyway. So he shocks himself by accepting an invitation to a holiday with a woman he barely knows. Sand, sun, and a beautiful woman with no strings attached, what more could a man want? How about forever?
Carly felt trapped. How did one little white lie backfire on her with such force? Telling her friends that she had a hunky boyfriend was turning into a nightmare. Now she had to produce one before meeting her friends on holiday. To make matters worse, the man she chose actually agreed. She did not have time for a man, especially one that could invade her heart and mind like Marco Valente. Marco had met his match. Carly was as professionally driven as he was, maybe more so. So why was work the last thing on his mind? Thoughts of love, marriage, and family never held any appeal to him until now. Now he could think of nothing else. Carly was his cara mia. He just had to convince her of that.
This story is a great example of how life just happens when you least expect it. Carly and Marco had their futures all mapped out, but fate stepped in and changed everything. Instead of taking the easy way out, they forged a union to protect what they had created. Both being strong willed and independent made their journey a rough ride, but their love that much stronger.
