Her love life is now non-existent. The only remote prospect is Derrick, her Mail Express deliveryman, and beside the fact that he’s incredibly good looking and not yet out of college, she knows next to nothing about him. Vanessa, her best friend, is still having a ball in sunny Costa Rica, while she’s stuck in a wet, sloppy spring back home. The one saving grace in her day-to-day is her job as a romance novelist, but lately, writing about sex just reminds her of exactly what she’s missing. The monthly trips via the time-traveling jewelry box Vanessa sent her at the beginning of the year are the only things Anya looks forward to, and they are definitely too few and far between.Vanessa is falling farther and farther out of love with her job. She is ready to trade in the international travel, the once-upon-a-time hot flings with lonely tourists, and above all else, the memory of the friendship she used to share with Richard. After putting off going to dinner with him for a few weeks, she has no excuses left and nowhere to hide from him in their small camp—it’s time for her to face the music. Whatever he has in store for her, she’s sure she’ll be on the first plane back to the States.April 15th can’t come fast enough—and once it does, neither can Anya. She finds herself in the midst of the Italian Renaissance, surrounded by the artistry, creativity, and passion for life so aptly embodied by Marcos, a poor but gifted painter. Will one night with Marcos be enough to give Anya the kick-start she needs to get out of her rut? One thing’s for certain: art history was never this much fun in school.
