Anne Taylor is a young, independent and successful career woman who lives in New York. She grew up not knowing her father. After he passes away, he leaves her a property in Italy.
She travels there to try to find something of her father. Anne finds the family she had never known but always longed for, and an incredibly attractive man; Damiano di Bonifacio.
But Damiano was her stepbrother. He resents her as he thinks she is only after the property her father left her.
So why, then, was he asking Anne to marry him? If only he knew the truth... He said he was in love with her, he showed his feelings for her every time he looked at her, touched her. Was his attraction genuine or part of some foul play? Or because it was her father's desire? Or was he marrying her to get at her inheritance?
