Description

On a mission to buy a prestigious shoe company, Australian career girl Gemma Parkinson arrives in Italy determined to succeed. But when she falls ill, effortlessly handsome local aristocrat Luca Andretti is on hand. Suspicious about Gemma's presence in his town, he offers to let her recuperate in his amazing palazzo. Surrounded by the lavish trappings of the rich - servants, designer clothes, fine food and wine - Gemma is completely out of her depth. Intent on saving the town's local industry, Brunelli Shoes, from foreign takeover, Luca throws every obstacle he can in Gemma's path. Headstrong, savvy and equally determined to successfully wrestle the company away from him, Gemma fights Luca all the way. But Luca's life of privilege masks a private world of pain and Gemma has demons of her own. As they come to understand one another, their growing attraction starts getting in the way. This moving love story involving two people from very different backgrounds is a delightful, contemporary romance in a gorgeous Italian setting. 'Fast paced and fun . . . Simple, easy reading for the busy modern woman.' - The Book Light 'If you like shoes, romance and all things Italian, you'll like Her Italian Aristocrat.' - AustralianWomenWriters.com

About Louise Reynolds

Louise Reynolds is an author of contemporary romantic fiction. Born in Sydney, she spent her childhood frolicking on beaches before moving to Melbourne at age 10. After one look at Melbourne beaches she got a library card and started to read. It was a logical step to take her love of romance novels to the next stage and tell her own stories. After some success in writing competitions she's thrilled that her warm, heartfelt romances have found an audience. By day, she works in the commercial lighting industry, lighting anything from bridges to five star hotels. By night, she's working her way through a United Nations of fictional heroes. After a lifetime of kissing frogs one finally turned into a prince and she lives with her partner in Melbourne's inner north. She loves live jazz, cooking complicated meals that totally destroy the kitchen, and dining out. She has embraced Melbourne by wearing far too much black.
