Sophie Hill has a brand-new job as an project assistant to the illustrious Marc Washington, the Italian magnate who won an auction for an uninhabited island and is dead set on making it his own personal haven. While this may be rote for the wealthy, Sophie doesn't come from this line of thinking or spending power, but she does have a personal connection to the Italy that Marc embraces. When Sophie was a child, she was a tomboy who adored her painter grandfather who took her in. Friends with a gondolier, Sophie never had much money, but she did have the love that comes from hard times with cherished family. Thankfully, a stranger saved her grandfather's life many years ago when he had a heart attack, but it might not be the only heart he saved in her world... There's no doubt that Sophie and Marc can make his dream of a private island home come true, but will they fill it with love?
