What happens when you meet the right guy at the wrong time?

When Vincent Alesi’s estranged father dies, he gets on the first plane from New York city to Rome to be at the memorial service. Even if he has to max out his credit card. Even if he hates the man for leaving him. Even if it’s a day before Christmas.

Everything that can go wrong does go wrong, and Vin ends up trusting a complete stranger with all his secrets, even the ones he didn’t know he had.

Luca Romano’s job as a flight attendant takes him all over the world. But a jet-setting lifestyle is not what he wants. His dream of opening his own restaurant is being placed on hold over circumstances beyond his control.

Timing is everything…

When Vin bursts into Luca’s life, both men fall fast and hard. But their lives, their dreams, even the cities they live in couldn’t be more different.

Their few days together in Rome are romantic, emotionally intense, and leave them both wanting more.

Can a fleeting love affair change their lives forever?

Luca called every night for the next three days. He was scheduled on a long flight to Bangkok on Monday, and then another one to Havana before he had a few days off again. Vin was worried Luca was working way too much, not giving his body time to recover from the long flights and the time difference. But just as Vin had taken on more than he could handle, he knew Luca was doing it for a reason.

“What are you wearing?” Luca asked when Vin picked up.

Vin laughed, shaking his head. It was Sunday night and it was bittersweet hearing Luca’s cheeky voice when he probably wouldn’t be able to talk to him for weeks after tonight.

“A pink jockstrap and nothing much else,” Vin purred.

He heard something crash and Luca swore away from the phone before coming back on the line.

“Really?” He sounded a little breathless but Vin wasn’t sure if it was caused by his jockstrap comment or whatever he’d scrambled to pick up off the floor.

“No,” Vin said with a laugh.

But then an idea struck him.

“Would you like me to?”

Luca inhaled sharply. “Good god, yes,” he said, the last word followed by a little moan.

“Alright. Give me a sec.”

He nearly ran to his bedroom, unearthing the pink jockstrap from the bottom of his underwear drawer and changing into it as quickly as he could. Then he lay on the bed, taking a few pictures of himself wearing it and sending them to Luca.

“God, I wish I was there right now,” Luca said, his voice sounding different as if he’d switched to loudspeaker. Vin turned on his loudspeaker, too, placing the phone on his chest and freeing his hands.

“What would you do if you were here, hm?”

About the Author


Hi, my name is Teodora and I live in London with my husband and my son. I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full time job a few years ago when I decided that everything else I’ve tried bores me to death and I have to do what I’ve always wanted to do, but never had the guts to fully embrace. I’ve been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among other things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It’s the only time that I’m truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time – my son has a bigger attention span than me.
When I’m procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Nintendo Wii game by a very inventive kid.
Don’t be shy and get in touch – I love connecting with my readers.
