Little Italy is a part of Tony Paladino. The noise, the food, the people—it's in his blood. Now he's taken over the family contracting business, trying to keep the community as vibrant and beautiful as it used to be. But the bitch about small communities is everyone knows everyone...
Which is why newcomer Catherine Fox is pretty much screwed. There isn't enough cannoli in the world to convince the old-school neighbors to accept an outsider. As Tony helps Cat restore the old home she bought, however, the chemistry between them is sizzlin' hot. And suddenly this sexy bachelor—who's oh-so-good with his hands—is not about to say Ciao!
As far as inventor Samantha O'Connel is concerned, work is better than food, a social life…even sex. Of course, all it takes is a single phone call from Matt Wilkinson—the ridiculously hot object of her girlhood fantasies—for Sam to discover even she has some naughty needs that won't be ignored.
Sam's biggest challenge is that while Matt is just as much a workaholic as she is, he's also a wealthy, sexy bachelor who could have any woman he wants. With the help of the cutting-edge "smart" apartment she designed, Sam might just be able to get deliciously and nakedly close to Matt. Close enough to show him that this nerdy brainiac can be his every fantasy… even if it's only for one blazingly hot night.
