While strolling the runways of Milan, Andie sees him and her heart begins to race. There is just something about the man that changes her world, makes everything brighter and happier. The more she gets to know Antonio, the more she falls in love with him. When their relationship reaches a physical crescendo, she tells him how her heart has fallen for him, thinking that he feels the same way. Unprepared, and suffering from a painful history with love, Antonio’s faltering response breaks her heart. Andie feels like she has finally met the heartless tycoon that everyone describes.
Although he isn’t able to respond in kind, Antonio feels far more than he would like when the lovely Andie professes her love for him. He knows that he wants to protect her, that he doesn’t want her to leave him, but he isn’t ready to be that vulnerable again. Her departure leaves him empty, until one day she shows up at his office, scared, too thin, still painfully beautiful…and pregnant. This time around, he is determined to keep her with him. He doesn’t know what he feels, but he knows that he can’t live without her.
