About the Book
Charley would do anything to keep her wages coming in and support her impoverished sisters and nephews--even if that meant working in Italy for the demanding and commanding Duke Raphael Della Striozzi.... Raphael couldn't understand why a woman like Charley dressed in dime-store clothes.
It was going to be straight off to a designer boutique for her! But it was in Raphael's bedroom that Charlotte's complete transformation took place--from shy, dowdy virgin to confident, beautiful...mistress!
