Lilly has the perfect life... she's beautiful, successful, and financially independent.

Lilly inherits a mysterious house in Vermont. She sees it as her life only getting better. She hires a hot contractor to fix up and restore the grand old house, then meets a gorgeous Italian professor who showers her with attention. What seems like a perfect life can sometimes be masking dark secrets just beneath the surface and old houses have their memories.

Will Lilly do the reasonable, safe, and expected thing and marry the dashing professor or give in to the raw passion of a future with the one man who has not only discovered the secrets of the house, but also Lilly's?

EXCERPT:
The drive was uneventful, and by the time I pulled into my parking space, I was bored and lonely.

I slogged up the stairs to the front door. First, I’d throw a load of laundry in, and then I’d order an early dinner of takeout.

Standing at the kitchen counter with the menus, I picked up the phone and hit speed dial. The voice was warm. “Hey, how was New York?”

“Well, it was good for you. You are now a proud season ticket holder for the Yankees.”

“Really, Lil?”

“Yeah.”

“Thank you, sweetie.”

“You’re welcome.” I bit my lower lip. “Hey, can I come over?”

His voice deepened. “Megan is away.”

“I know.”

“Ah, that kind of visit.”

I leaned my head against the cabinet. Darn it. I wish I had more willpower. “Yes.”

“Come on over.”
