It was Matteo, her lover from five years ago...in bed with another woman! Since escaping Sicily, where they both grew up, he’s become a famous and wealthy entrepreneur. There are even rumors that he’s bought the hotel Bella works at! Long ago, the night before eighteen-year-old Bella was to be sold into prostitution, she gave Matteo her virginity, and they promised each other they would escape their mafia-controlled island. However, Bella was unable to escape with him that night and remained trapped for many years. So why, after finally reuniting, does Matteo look at Bella with eyes full of resentment and anger?
