Since I believe every girl is a princess, and every princess deserves a happy ending, what could be more perfect?

When ambitious workaholic Sarah Wells discovers she has inherited her estranged father's vineyard near Montalcino in Tuscany, the last thing she wants is to take time away from her busy schedule to sort out a crumbling mess of a palazzo. But, of course, life never runs smoothly and when she makes a rare error, her bosses decide a holiday is just what she needs.
