Ursula has given up on Christmas and is doing her level best to avoid it—family, presents, traditions—the whole package. Trouble is, when she becomes lost in the snowy mountains of Italy, with a car that won’t start, and nowhere to stay, she finds she’s landed in the midst of a traditional Christmas with no place to hide.
Widower Demetrio is devoted to his family, his land and tradition. And then he falls for Ursula—a beautiful woman from a very different world to his—and knows he has to get her to fall in love, not just with him, but his life. So he tempts her… one tradition in return for one more day together.
But can Demetrio’s traditions and love do the impossible? Can they make Ursula stop running from her emotions, and instead, embrace them?
Enjoy a heart-warming escape to Italy and An Accidental Christmas!

Falling for the perfectly handsome Alessandro Cavour, Count di Montecorvio Rovella, is the last thing archaeologist Emily Carlyle needs as she recovers from the physical and emotional scars inflicted by an ex-boyfriend. But she can't avoid him when she finds out he owns the estate where she's discovered an ancient Roman site.
After an itinerant and lonely childhood, art restorer Lucia yearns for what other people have—a home, husband and children. There is no way she’s going to get involved with a commitment-phobe again.
Seven years earlier, Luca Vittori had been rejected by Isabella and he'd left Italy. But now he's back to honor a promise he made to his grandmother to hire Isabella to redecorate the castello. He just wants it over and done with so he can return to his home in Australia. Trouble is, he hadn't planned on re-igniting a passion he'd hoped was long dead—a passion which threatens to destroy before it can heal...
YouTube sensation Laura McKinney has one goal—to live life to its fullest by accepting challenges from all around the world and filming them. She believes long-term relationships are for idiots, and marriage is ridiculous. Max Connelly reckons that makes her exactly his kind of woman.
But Max is pursuing his own dream, building his mountain resort into the place to be in the southern hemisphere. He knows what her publicity could do for his resort so he issues his own challenge—to get married. After all, it wouldn’t mean anything to either of them. Would it?
Max and Laura first appeared in The Lakehouse Café, book 6 of The Mackenzies. For more information on Diana's New Zealand series, keep reading!
