The fake fiancEe Harriet had been persuaded to impersonate her friend Rosa. But wealthy Italian Leo Fortinari appeared fooled by Harriet's pretense, and a powerful attraction now simmered between them. Now he was proposing an engagment of convenience to please his frail grandmother! Harriet didn't dare confess she was visiting Tuscany in her friend's place-and she had no intention of deceiving an old lady. An engagement to Leo would be disastrous. Such desire was dangerous: Leo was bound to realize Harriet was a fake, once he discovered she was a virgin!
