Look who’s grown up now…
Valentina Romeo loved a romantic wedding, and couldn’t wait to serve as an attendant in her favorite cousin Prince Luca of Monaforte’s upcoming nuptials. She and Luca had revealed in childhood summers at the family estate on the Ligurian Sea. Many of her fondest memories were made there, along with one of her most humiliating, when Luca’s college roommate Parker shunned her brave declaration of love.
Investment banker Parker Hornsby hadn’t been back to Monaforte since he was in college. Back then he’d spent a glorious summer enjoying idyllic days at his best friend Luca’s family beach home. The fun was marred only by Luca’s obtrusive younger cousin Valentina, who could barely mask her crush on Parker, forcing him to flatly cut her off before she got her hopes up. The last thing Parker wanted was to be accused of going after his friend’s jailbait cousin, even if she was about the sweetest fourteen-year old girl he’d ever met.
But when Parker shows up in Monaforte, paired in Luca’s wedding with Valentina, all bets are off on whether he can restrain himself from the beautiful—and fully grown-up—heiress to the world-famous Romeo wine label, or whether she remains the nemesis she thinks he is.
I have been absolutely loving the Romeo family and was very excited to read the story of the only female sibling Valentina Romeo. Book three not only brings us that story, but also the royal wedding of Prince Luca (the cousin to the Romeo siblings) and Larkin. You should remember them from book eight of the It's Reigning Men series, A Court Gesture. Valentina Romeo and Parker Hornsby are both attendants in the Royal wedding and they had met before. Their prior meeting definitely left an impact on Valentina and the sparks flew at the week-long royal wedding prep.
This was such a fascinating read and I can not wait to read Blue Color Romeo and the continuing story of the Romeo family.
