The story starts with fashion tycoon Marco d'Angelo and Princess Marilena Borgiano, they are happily engaged to get married. Are madly in love with each other and have no reason to think anything will come between them.
Enter Marco's ex-wife Peyton. Peyton is returning to Italy with their twin daughters because she has come down with cancer and wants the girls to reunite with their father.
This throws a hitch in the happily ever after life of Marco and the Princess, but will they overcome it? I don't want to be the one to spoil it for you! Do yourself a favor, pick up this book, a box of tissues and spend a sunny afternoon in Milan. You'll love it!

This book covered ground you don't normally traveled in a Harlequin. The hero, who is divorced from the heroine, has truly moved on - so much so that he is engaged with the wedding scheduled in a matter of months.
The writer did a good job of developing the emotional onnections between the characters.
My one other beef with this book is that the heroine remained celibate from their divorce until she encountered the hero again. Come on. How realistic is that? Though it is a common occurance in Harlequins, I don't know nor have a heard of a single person whose sexuality went dormant after a break-up, even if the ex was the first and only guy she had been with.
Despite these quibbles, this was an excellent book. I looks forward to reading more books by Ms. Porter.
I love Marco's unspoken respect for Payton's talent in their business world and how it surprised Payton when he eventually tells her. Payton's motives for bringing the girls back to Italy and their father, even though he is about to marry someone else is amazingly altruistic and a symbol of her love for her girls. The other reviewer have spoiled this part but I hope readers will still want to read and enjoy this gorgeous story.
I actually liked OW, even with her ...... nope, you'll have to read it because it's funny how one can like and forgive OW. A lovely story and a rare keeper for me.
