A writer looking for inspiration in Tuscany.
One hot Italian single dad.
This summer is going to be a scorcher.
One Hot Italian Summer by New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling author, Karina Halle is now live!
After the death of her best friend and writing partner, Grace Harper is struggling both with grief, and with her next novel, the first one she’ll have to write alone.
Fortunately, her new powerhouse agent, the formidable Jana Lee, has a solution for her. She can stay at her villa in Tuscany for a month, soak in the sunshine, relax, and find her confidence again. After all, Jana has a lot riding on Grace’s next book, and the last thing she wants is for her reputation as a “super-agent” to be tarnished.
At first the villa is a dream come true for Grace – that is until Claudio Romano shows up one day with his ten-year old son, Vanni, in tow. Turns out, this is Claudio’s house, and Claudio happens to be her agent’s ex-husband from long ago. Thanks to their annual father and son bonding trip being cancelled, Claudio and Vanni are here to stay.
So is Grace.
With the three of them sharing the same house, Grace’s writing plans are thrown out the window. But even if she’s not pounding the keyboard, she’s still finding beauty and inspiration… in none other than Claudio. He’s unlike any man Grace has met before. He’s smart, charming, and wickedly sexy, plus a great father to Vanni. He’d be the perfect summer fling – if only he wasn’t completely off-limits.
But as the hot Italian summer wears on, Grace and Claudio are destined to succumb to the heat, no matter how hard they try to resist each other. One steamy encounter with Claudio could affect Grace’s chances of starting her career over.
Or he could be exactly what she needs.

Grace is going through an emotional time in her life which is not only affecting her personally but professionally as well. She is an author who finds herself unable to write and facing an impending deadline which is only hurting the situation and not helping. When her agent suggests a getaway to Italy to give her the time and distance she needs to inspire her creativity, it is an offer she can’t refuse.
Claudio is the perfect combination of sexy and suave whose appeal is only increased by the fact that he is a single father and a sculptor. When he needs to change his vacation plans with his son, he never expected that it would mean spending the next month with Grace. What started as an inconvenience might just be the best thing to happen to both of them if only her agent wasn’t also his ex-wife.
The chemistry between them was smouldering but it was the way that they connected to each other on an emotional level as Claudio helped her through a very difficult time in their life. This book will resonant on so many levels as the characters are compelling, the storyline is captivating, their romance was magical and the locale beautiful.
