Gina found an old wedding photo when she was fifteen. The two newlyweds in the picture were her mother and a man she didn’t know. When she asked her mother, she told Gina that the man was her biological father, Giovanni Carendente. They got married in secret before Gina was born but he died in an accident on his way to his parents’ home to inform them of his wife’s pregnancy. Ten years later, Gina goes to Italy to learn more about the father she never knew. While she’s there, she meets a man to whom she feels deeply attracted. He’s a count and his name is…Lucius Carendente. He has the same last name as her father!
