As Lauren Layne’s salacious Sex, Love & Stiletto series returns, a jaded columnist discovers a steamy way to get over an old flame: falling for him all over again.
As Stiletto magazine’s authority on all things breakup-and-heartache, Emma Sinclair writes from personal experience. Five years ago, Emma was Charlotte, North Carolina’s darling debutante and a blushing bride-to-be. Now she’s the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene. Emma left her sultry Southern drawl behind, but not even her closest friends know that with it she left her heart. Now Emma’s latest article forces her to face her demons—namely, the devilishly sexy guy who ditched her at the altar.
After giving up everything for a pro-soccer career, Alex Cassidy watches his dreams crumble as a knee injury sidelines him for good. Now he’s hanging up his cleats and giving journalism a shot. It’s just a coincidence that he happens to pick a job in the same field, and the same city, as his former fiancée . . . right? But when Emma moves in next door, it’s no accident. It’s research. And Alex can’t help wondering what might have been. Unlike the innocent girl he remembers, this Emma is chic, sophisticated, and assertive—and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, Alex has never wanted her more.

His answer was to hear the faint noise of the lift descending.
Wyn Sander is surprised when his brother Kyle asks him to be best man at his wedding. Wyn’s even more shocked to learn the woman who later walks into his garage is Ronnie’s half-sister, Iona. He’s instantly attracted to her. She’s sophisticated, beautiful, and confident. At least she is until Wyn stands up. She flinches and a look of terror passes over her face. It bothers him to see. Luckily, desire replaces it, but it doesn’t stop Wyn’s curiosity. For the first time in his life, he wants to find out what made Iona fearful and fix it.
Iona can’t believe her luck. The man she lusts after is her new sister’s soon to be brother-in-law. The kiss they share shatters her, but her attempt to stop any involvement with him ends up with her agreeing to three dates. She decides Wyn is unlike any man she’s ever known, and it’s unfortunate she can’t enjoy him. She isn’t in the market for a boyfriend. All she wants is sex. The only problem is—she doesn’t think Wyn sees things her way.

Rocco Mondelli is shocked to discover that his late grandfather didn’t leave him a controlling interest in the family’s business. He is also disheartened to learn that his grandfather had been keeping a mistress young enough to be his granddaughter! However, Rocco soon finds that the young woman is super-model Olivia Fitzgerald, and she doesn’t want anyone to know who she is or why she skipped out on a very lucrative contract. Olivia Fitzgerald has her own demons to ward off and fighting an attraction to the handsome playboy isn’t helping things. Wanting only to realize her dreams and seeing that she doesn’t have another option, she agrees to the proposal that Rocco presents her with at the risk of losing herself. Will Rocco and Olivia find that sometimes the price of fulfilling their dreams is too great, or will they push on to achieve their goals?
The Italian’s Deal for I Do is an emotional tale that pushes the protagonists to work through their issues and truly trust each other before attainting their HEA.
Rocco was the typical jump-to-conclusions Hero, but he wasn’t too prideful to issue that apology when it was called for in The Italian’s Deal for I Do. Olivia was amusing when she teased Rocco about things that he completely denied. Placing him in the hot seat just added to the foreplay between the two of them in The Italian’s Deal for I Do. The troubles that Olivia went through seemed quite plausible, and I felt that Rocco was truly there to hold her hand as she navigated her way through them. Rocco and Olivia learned quite a lot on their road to HEA in The Italian’s Deal for I Do, and it was gratifying when they completed their tasks. I found that there was some symmetry in both Rocco’s and Olivia’s tasks, as well. Hindrances were placed in both their paths, but they had to choose what was more important in order to see things through. They seemed to realize that sometimes they would have to give up things in order to move forward in The Italian’s Deal for I Do, and this seemed to fully evolve their characters, too.
