"April Stockwood's dreams of a perfect Italian vacation didn't include losing her passport and wallet. But getting stranded has its advantages...like reconnecting with Hayden Callaway, an old high school classmate who is now a foreign service officer with the American Consulate in Milan. Twenty years have turned Hayden into a fine, sophisticated man. As he introduces her to the sights and sounds of Italy, their rekindled friendship develops into a passionate interlude. After returning home, April is prepared to write it off as a summer fling, especially when she considers how her daughter might react. But a stateside visit from Hayden makes it clear that the attraction between them is very real. Unfortunately, so is the distance. How much will each of them be willing to give up to make their love work?"
