Nadine Barnet was a young and impressionable student on a footloose tour of Italy when she first met famous artist Lawrence Stebbing. Their passion was as sudden and overwhelming as the Italian rainstorm in which it began, as warm and glorious as the Italian sun under which it grew. She willingly agreed to a love without conditions or commitments, never dreaming her brazen declarations would be tested. But Lawrence had meant what he said and, her dreams shattered, she fled.
Now, four years later, she could no longer hide. Lawrence stood before her, arousing her passion, asking for her love, and demanding the one thing he had left her with – his son.
