Publisher's Summary

To most people, princes, princesses, counts, and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairy tales. Crowns, priceless jewels, and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams. But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth. For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan's Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country's most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set. I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status, and masked balls, they are everything and more. And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona's wife...or at least I was, until I met Achille. And everything changed.

Brilliant!

Once again Tillie Cole has written a masterpiece of a romance! I loved this very romantic story about two star-crossed lovers who meets in a vineyard in Italy. The heroine has been raised to become a queen and has been betrothed to the de facto prince of Italy since she was a child. When the time comes for her to travel to Italy to marry the prince, this American/Italian woman finds that she's not attracted to the playboy prince, who leaves her at his estate while waiting for the wedding and goes off jet setting around with other women. While waiting, she meets the maker of one of the finest merlot wines in the world. Over learning about the wine they fall in love with with each other, but they have the problem of her betrothal (on which her family's business depends). Can she make the decision for love, or will duty win out. Great narration!
