Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption... It's time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.

Roman Ventori isn't looking for a wife. He's had one of those and it ended badly. He's come back to Magdalena out of duty, not love for the town that drove him away with rumors and judgments.

Angie Sorrento is in Magdalena to do a job, not find a husband. She almost had one of those, until he dumped her days before the wedding.

Roman's father has health problems and his last wish is to see his son settled with a wife, a child, a second chance at a life that doesn't include city life and flashy women. There's only one person in town who can make the impossible happen. Angelo "Pop" Benito, the Godfather of Magdalena, is the wiliest matchmaker in the Catskills and if he sets his mind to it, an old man might see his wish come true.

Oh, and remember Gloria Blacksworth's notebook, the one filled with enough destruction to bring down Magdalena? Well, it's causing trouble again, and this time the target is Miriam Desantro... Pop's going to try to intervene, but he might be too late...

From the Author:

Roman Ventori and Angie Sorrento were great characters to write about. Roman is definitely swoon-worthy, and Angie is full of spunk and sass!

From the Inside Flap:

"Can I help you, hon?"

The waitress snapped her gum and grinned, her gray bun bouncing with the motion. Did all small towns have diners like this? Montpelier had Sophie's Diner--and a waitress named Sophie who also wore a bun and support shoes. "I can't decide between the chocolate cream pie and the éclair."

"Both are good. Depends if you want the kind of sweet that creeps up on you and makes you all warm inside, or the one that hits you with a sugar rush so hard and fast, it makes your stomach jumpy. If you want the one that takes its good old time getting in your system, go with the pie. If you want the one that hits you hard and fast and spins you around so you can't remember your name, get the éclair." She paused, looked up and smiled. "Speaking of sugar, hello, Roman. How are you, darlin'?"

Mr. Beautiful moved into position until he was beside her, his tall body dwarfing hers. He really was a big guy, not just tall, but muscled, toned. She looked away, concentrated on the desserts, and attempted to ignore the man who would not be ignored.

"Hello, Phyllis. How's my favorite waitress?"

Was he kidding? Surely Phyllis wasn't going to fall for that line or the way he made his voice dip when he said her name. Come on, the guy was playing with her. But the flushed cheeks and throaty response said Phyllis didn't care.

"We've missed you, Roman. Every woman from here to Connecticut hated to see you leave and wondered if you'd ever make it back this way."

He leaned forward, placed his hands on the counter, and offered up a slow smile. "Good to know."

Angie snorted. "For heaven's sake," she mumbled. "Is that the best you've got?"

He ignored her, continued his conversation with Phyllis the waitress as though Angie weren't standing right next to him. "If you see a pint-sized woman with wild black hair and a temper, sell her five éclairs." He pointed to the row of éclairs in the case. "She needs all the sugar she can get." Then he nodded at Phyllis, threw her one last dazzling smile, and left.

When the door jangled closed, Phyllis let out a low swoosh of air and said, "Now that man will set a girl's panties on fire."
