Lilly has the perfect life… she’s beautiful, successful, and financially independent.

Blurb:  Lilly inherits a mysterious house in Vermont. She sees it as her life only getting better. She hires a hot contractor to fix up and restore the grand old house, then meets a gorgeous Italian professor who showers her with attention. What seems like a perfect life can sometimes be masking dark secrets just beneath the surface and old houses have their memories.

Will Lilly do the reasonable, safe, and expected thing and marry the dashing professor or give in to the raw passion of a future with the one man who has not only discovered the secrets of the house, but also Lilly’s?

He was the epitome of a hot guy who did hard physical labor, dressed in his faded jeans and a fitted navy-blue tee. He was gorgeous, and he gave me a lazy grin. “I am so glad you like it. I’m pleased with how it came out.”

“You should be.”

He gestured to the fridge. “I put a bottle of champagne in there so you could celebrate.”

I was touched. “Thank you.” Suddenly, I felt shy. “Would you stay and have a glass with me?”

He looked uncomfortable, and I wondered if I had put my foot in my mouth. Did he have a wife or girlfriend at home? He wasn’t wearing a ring, but did that really mean anything? He worked with his hands, so maybe he took it off when on the job. “How will your boyfriend feel about you having a drink with me?” he said.


His eyes never left mine. “Everyone knows you’re seeing Roberto Romano. I’m happy to have a drink with you, Lily, I’d love to. But I also don’t want to cause a problem between the two of you.”

I had to stifle a smile. Okay, this hunky sweetheart was worrying about stepping on Berto’s toes, and my ex-husband had wanted to have an open marriage. I sure knew how to find interesting people on both ends of the spectrum. “He’s not my boyfriend,” I said. “We see each other but it’s not like we’re serious.”
