Blue Collar Romeo
Book 4, The Royal Romeos
Things are heating up under this blue collar…
Gisele Hornsby can’t believe her good fortune when she’s invited to attend the royal wedding of Prince Luca of Monaforte with her brother Parker. And she’s elated when she finds herself cozying up to Luca’s charming and very hot royal cousin, Tomasso Romeo. Until she learns he’s a cowardly commitment-phobe, and she decides she wants nothing more to do with a man who shuns simple friendship with another woman for fear of what might happen that could tie him down.
Tomasso Romeo’s in need of a change. Tired of following the dreams of his father toiling in the family wine business in Tuscany, he realizes he’s happiest when working with his hands, and heads off for New York to apprentice with a famed woodworker who helped to build his family’s lavish corporate headquarters, a stunning tribute to craftsmanship and now a popular tourist destination.
When Parker takes a sabbatical in Italy to be with Tomasso’s sister, he persuades Tomasso to move into the Manhattan brownstone in his place to keep watch over his beloved little sister. But Gisele is none too pleased with her brother’s unwelcome meddling, and decides her new roommate has got to go. Before she remembers how much she’d like nothing more than to have him stay.
Silver Spoon Romeo
Book 5, The Royal Romeos
…Who needs a spoon when he’s so finger lickin’ good?
Celebrity TV show host Sophie Pellegrino’s life needs a little kick-start. Watching her best friend fall head-over-heels for a handsome Italian man had already stirred up Sophie’s longings to at the very least get in touch with her Italian roots. She’d be even happier if she could get in touch with an Italian man while she was at it. Preferably while drinking plenty of delicious Italian wine. When she lands her dream assignment hosting a “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” type of show, she seizes the opportunity to attempt all of the above when she decides to take her show in the road to the world-renowned vineyard Cantine Marchesi Romeo in Chianti. Italy? Check. Fine wine? Check. Italian man? With some luck, maybe she could find herself a Romeo playmate and score her own personal hat trick while basking beneath the Tuscan sun.
Lorenzo Romeo, a playboy whose friends liked to joke that he put the “roam” in Romeo, is tired of being used as the face of Romeo wines. For too long, his brother Alessandro has made Lorenzo serve as the mouthpiece for the family empire, and he’s over being just another pretty face to sell wine. He wants to be taken seriously. So when an American woman shows up wanting to capitalize on his good looks to score some television ratings, he wants nothing to do with her show or her. And when his brother forces him to be a gracious host, Lorenzo digs deep to shun the stunning intruder who is clearly intent on making his life a living hell.
Too bad for him, Sophie’s not going to let some conceited Italian Alpha Dog get in the way of her professional success, even if that means running roughshod over his bloated ego, and maybe even his fragile heart.
