Release day: Never Say No to a Caffarelli
Today is the official release of Never Say No to a Caffarelli by Melanie Milburne (book 1, Those Scandalous Caffarellis trilogy) (paperback, Harlequin). Here’s the blurb:
Rafe Caffarelli is a mouth-watering specimen of Mediterranean manhood. He’s a playboy billionaire, determined to buy Poppy’s historic dower house.
Poppy won’t give up the only thing that remains of her childhood and family. She’ll fight Rafe — and her attraction to him. Will she be the first woman to say ‘no’ to a Caffarelli?
Melanie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
It’s so much easier these days with social media for readers to interact with authors and tell them how much they loved (or hated!) a book or a particular character or theme. So it was with a lot of thought that I plotted out my Caffarelli brothers’ trilogy. I wanted something for everyone in the brothers’ stories. Rafe, Raoul and Remy are rich, ruthless and irresistible and they each met their perfect match, but not without some fireworks! Rafe is the oldest of three brothers and is a hard-nosed workaholic. His relationships are run the same way he runs his property development business. There is no emotion involved. He just gets what he wants and moves on… until he meets Poppy Silverton. Poppy lives in the dower house on the Dalrymple Estate; it was bequeathed to her and her grandmother on the late Lord Dalrymple’s death. It’s the only home she’s known and all her happiest memories are within those four walls. So for a rich, ruthless French-Italian developer to come striding into her sleepy little village where she owns and operates a tearoom and think he can buy her shop and her house from beneath her, starts a war with not just fireworks but pistols at dawn!
