Bulldozing his way into sleepy Harborside, Jake laughs in the face of the local opposition, but is stopped in his tracks by fiery Italian Mariabella Santaro.
To protect the community that has treated her like a daughter and kept her secret, Mariabella will have to help Jake fall in love with the place—fast. For in Mariabella's stocking there aren't candy canes and chocolates—there's a diamond tiara and a plane ticket to the palace!
