Marriage was out of the question.
It was tantamount to self-destruction.
And yet this proposal was most tempting.
Franco couldn’t believe he was not only entertaining the thought of marrying Carla but also very tempted to say yes.
With his appetite long forgotten, he glanced across the table. Carla’s unfinished meal had been pushed off to the side. It appeared neither of them were that hungry. He paid the check, and then they headed outside. He had no particular destination in mind.
When he’d accepted her request for this dinner, he figured it would be to turn down his latest business proposal to place his spices back in the Falco Fresco Ristorantes. Carla’s family’s company was the largest restaurant chain in all of Italy. It spanned from the northern fringes of the country down to the warm shores of Naples. It’d taken decades for the chain to be the most well-known name in Italy, but they’d succeeded. And Franco liked to think his family had something to do with it, seeing as his family’s spices were what they’d used in the restaurant until more recent years.
But why did the success of both of their businesses have to hinge on marriage?
He raked his fingers through his hair as he tried to figure out another solution, one that was amenable to both of them. He stopped walking. He turned to Carla and gazed into her beautiful brown eyes. For a moment, he forgot what he was going to say. Her beauty, well, it was unique, and it didn’t come from makeup.
It started with her heart-shaped face, her warm brown eyes and long lashes. She had high cheekbones, a pert nose and lush lips. She was stunning. But he refused to let himself get distracted. This was too important.
