I'm hoping it might be on print by now.  I can't remember the author or the title or whether I saw it at Newconcepts or Ellorascave.  I had a list of ebooks I eventually wanted and I lost it in the move.  It's a long shot but I'm hoping someone here read or remembers it.

I didn't read it so I'm just remember what the plost was basically about. The heroine was an American who goes to Italy to teach English at a college I think.  She might have been hired to teach English to the Police Department.   I remember from the plot write up that she has a friend that's already there and I think the friend has gone missing. The hero is an Italian Police Detective who is either looking into the missing friend's case or some other case and the heroine ends up in danger.  Presumably they have lots of hot sweaty sex.  That's the gist of it anyway.

I know not much to go on but I'm hoping the fact that it takes place in contemporary Italy will trigger someone's memory.

Mary, That description sounds a lot like "Port of Paradise" by Lisa Marie Rice. I have the book and the back cover says: Hope Winston is in Italy running a school for her best friend, Kay Summers. But helping Kay has put her life in danger. Hope doesn't want protection and she doesn't want help. She doesn't want anyone, particularly not devastatingly sexy Capitano Franco Rivera, head of the elite anti-mafia squad. Hope hates cops. So how did she end up sleeping with one? Hope Winston is the most delectable woman Franco Rivera has ever seen. There's only one problem. Hope keeps sticking her pretty little nose in trouble. She needs a keeper. And Franco Rivera is just the man to keep her. . . In his bed. Kay Summers lands in the hospital after an accident and so Hope goes to Italy to help her. Then some accidents start happing to Hope and Franco gets involved.

Yes!  That's the one! Thank you!

I just added it to my WL.  I love her I'm surprised I  didn't remember the author.  I was really new to romance and erotica at the time so I probably hadn't read anything else by her at that point.
