“In this fairy tale with a sexy twist, she’s a penniless San Francisco seamstress. He’s the king of Italian couture. Who’s got designs on whom?
Boutique owner Kimber DiSanto has seen better days. She’s been dumped at the altar by Prince Charmless, her business went up in flames (literally), and now she’s stuck in Florence, Italy, with an ice-queen stepmother, to try to save her late father’s failing dress shop. Only one thing could make it worse: another man in her life. The arrogant Italian fashion tycoon offering to buy her father’s shop is as rich as he is sexy, and their attraction is off the charts. But Kimber’s not about to get burned again.
Women don’t say no to Matteo Moretti—and certainly not with Kimber’s stinging precision. With all the heat and fury sparking between them, Matteo can’t resist baiting the gorgeous American. His plan? Win her over one scorching kiss at a time.
Kimber tells herself it’s all just a game. That her broken heart isn’t in danger, and that Matteo’s touch does not make her Lady Land dance with joy. But sometimes it takes the fieriest of enemies to turn a fantasy into a real-life romance.”

In Ache For You, the third book in J.T. Geissinger’s Slow Burn series, Kimber’s entire life seems to be ripping at the seams. Owner and designer of a small dress boutique in San Francisco, she has worked tirelessly on designing her perfect wedding dress and bridesmaid gowns for her impending marriage to the Senator’s son. The press will be swarming and this is a great chance to showcase her designs and promote her business on the happiest day of her life. As it turns out, the happiest day of her life will be the most humiliating. Left at the altar, the press turns out to be her worst nightmare instead of a dream come true. When she thinks it can’t get any worse, she must travel to Italy only to discover that her father secretly married a cold, heartless stranger and his dress shop is barely hanging by a thread. Running out of money, patience and a thread of hope, Kimber is fighting to save her father’s shop, her own reputation and her sanity, she’s also faced with an infuriating, sexy, domineering competitor who has stolen her designs and threatens to steal her heart.
Ache for you had the witty dialogue, flowing writing and dynamic characters I have come to know and love from J.T. Geissinger. It also felt like bad luck was raining from the sky and at some point the dam was going to break. I appreciated Kimber’s drive, ambition and sass, but I also found myself irritated with her for being quick to judge, easily manipulated and close minded. Although the tragedies and drama were almost painful to read and you couldn’t help but feel for Kimber, they were also extremely entertaining. I swear I kept waiting for the next shoe to drop. JT never fails to keep me completely immersed in whatever story she writes.
