“You think I’m a gold digger, but what are you up to?” Former model Helena heads for Venice alone to see the glass factory her late husband left to her. There she meets Salvatore, her husband’s nephew. Salvatore is sure that the young and beautiful widow married his uncle solely to make a killing from the famous factory, and he’s all too ready to get in her way. Insulted, Helena fights back. But even as the pair clash over the factory, Salvatore’s overwhelming charms tempt Helena! A sexy romance ensues in the city of water!
I do love a heroine with backbone and she definitely had it in this novel. The heroine is the widow of the hero's old uncle, but it was a platonic relationship. Since the uncle has died, the heroine has inherited the famous italian glasswork company and is going to go see it. The heroine goes incognito, participates in the hero's tourist viewing of the glass making factory. This gives her the chance to over hear the hero's opinion of her and decides to make things a little hard for him. She decides to run the company and she does amazingly well. She speaks Italian fluently in speech, read, and write. She kept the hero a bit on his toes and learns that there is more to her than the supposed "title" of a greedy woman. Although, I must say that the naked glass statue of the heroine was a bit below the belt ( Even if it wasn't intentional) and I did like how the workers of the glass factory stood by her. It was an interesting read that brought a smile to my face.
