From Golden Heart finalist Alyson McLayne comes a new contemporary romance series following the boys of St. Ignatius who are all grown up and still fighting it out on the soccer field--and finding love in Sizzling, Sexy, Santa Barbara.
It was only supposed to be one night...
Ever since self-made man Santo D'amici and heiress Elena Berrucci snuck off for a tryst at their best friends' wedding, they've been trying to break up. The affair should have ended with the light of day, but something keeps pulling them back together--into his bed, the shower, the back seat of the limousine--anywhere they can retreat from Santa Barbara's prying, society eyes.
One night that turned into months...
Now Elena's threatened by a potential kidnapping and Santo insists on staying close even though Elena believes it's a hoax. If that weren't bad enough, a pregnancy test confirms their wild nights have had permanent consequences, and Santo sets out to convince Elena marriage is their only option. But having survived the crossfire of her parents' acrimonious relationship, Elena has vowed never to subject herself to that misery.
Can Elena give their relationship--their family--a chance and turn one night into a lifetime of love?
