THE ITALIAN MATCH
Looking for her roots, Gina finds an aristocratic Italian family!
Gina found an old wedding photo when she was fifteen. The two newlyweds in the picture were her mother and a man she didn’t know. When she asked her mother, she told Gina that the man was her biological father, Giovanni Carendente. They got married in secret before Gina was born but he died in an accident on his way to his parents’ home to inform them of his wife’s pregnancy. Ten years later, Gina goes to Italy to learn more about the father she never knew. While she’s there, she meets a man to whom she feels deeply attracted. He’s a count and his name is…Lucius Carendente. He has the same last name as her father!

The heroine has gone to Italy in order to discover about her birth father since she found out as a teenager that her father was really her stepfather. First day in and both her car and her get sideswiped by another car. Her transportation is kaputt and she heads to the home where the reckless racer was heading. There she meets the hero who has the same last name as her birth father as well as the rest of the family. Her presence is mixed with mother and male cousin being kind but sisters don't share the sentiment. The heroine manages to turn the sister who crashed her car to her side but the older sister wants her out since she she finds her a threat by keeping the hero from marrying her best friend. The heroine does however, keep secret of her father's family's name in response to the mean sister's comments. The hero finds himself immediately attracted to the heroine but she's hesitant about the whole thing. The heroine also learns the hero's family is only the branch family and not the head family that the heroine was looking for. Finally, the heroine gives into a passion with the hero and during their bed activities, the Mean Sister snoops through the heroine's things and finds the wedding photo of her parents. She goes on flashing the whole thing like it's the big scoop to get the heroine thrown out of the house but the hero turns it around that if she is the dead heir's daughter then it's they who will get thrown out of the house. He puts it down the only option as marriage but the heroine refuses for the obvious reasons. I liked how when the sister tried to put blame on the heroine, the heroine turned it around on if the sister hadn't snooped then this wouldn't have happened. Instead of submitting, the heroine leaves back for home. Then she sadly finds out that her stepfather's company is in desperate needs of funds and tries to get the hero's help. The hero states he'll only offer it if she marries him. The heroine doesn't see the other way of just sending her documents that proves she's has rights in order to get the money. She agrees to the blackmail marriage, despite her parents insistence not to do it. When the heroine arrives back in Italy, there's a mixed welcome with the older sister bringing in the friend who should have "married" the hero. I did like the scene where at the party, the heroine is approached by another guy who states the hero is going to cheat on her, so why not do the same with him but she tells him to shove off. The heroine goes against the hero and he takes it the bad way. It puts their marriage on ice and the hero decides to use the OW as a way to make the heroine jealous. The heroine does show who's the boss by kicking the OW when she makes inappropriate comments. Things don't get better till the heroine gets into a car accident. It finally brings about the sit down between hero and heroine. He tells her the Mean sister's getting a lecture and the doctor tells they that they're going to be parents. It's a decent ending.
