The time has come. In order to secure the future of his family estate and fix his broken relationship with his father, workaholic lawyer Matthew D’Adamo needs a wife.
Enter Sarah Browne, a free-spirited event manager, who is looking for an escape from the emotional and physical toll of her endometriosis, and the incessant buzzer of her biological clock.
With an ironclad prenuptial agreement, Matthew and his ‘wife’, Sarah, are moving to Florence to fulfil the D’Adamo inheritance clause.
There are just two problems. One: they’ve never met. Two: there’s another claimant on the D’Adamo estate.
Matthew and the other potential heir will have to compete for the inheritance. ‘Faking it’ from their first meeting at Sydney airport, Matthew and Sarah’s resolve will be tested at every turn. Will they have what it takes? And who said anything about love?
