Never Say No to a Caffarelli is the first book in Melanie Milburne’s fabulous new trilogy about three gorgeous Mediterranean heroes and the sassy women who tame them!
Poppy Silverton is going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment. Her boyfriend Oliver stole all her recipes, opened up a rival eatery and then dumped her for another woman, her old-fashioned tea room is on the brink of closing down and she’s struggling to keep the wolf from the door. Every day has become a constant battle for survival. However, just when Poppy thinks that things cannot get any worse, she receives news that ruthless billionaire Rafe Caffarelli wants to buy the dower house which Poppy has called home for years. Poppy has had to endure plenty of hardship and heartache in the last couple of months, but she is determined not to go down without a fight. She is adamant that she will not sell her beloved house – least of all to a heartless property developer like Rafe Caffarelli who wants to build a soulless luxury hotel in her leafy English village. Rolling over and giving in to Rafe Caffarelli’s plans is something Poppy is not prepared to do. But little does innocent Poppy realise that Rafe Caffarelli is the kind of man who doesn’t let anything or anybody stand in his way…
Whether he’s in the boardroom or in the bedroom, Rafe is used to getting whatever he wants. When he set his sights on the breathtaking Darlymple Manor, Rafe was determined to add the property to his already impressive portfolio and build one of the world’s most exclusive hotels. However, the last thing the charismatic tycoon imagined was to find himself locking horns with the first woman in years not prepared to do his bidding – Poppy, who is refusing to sell her dower house to him! Used to women throwing themselves at him on a regular basis, Rafe thinks that all he has to do is switch on the famous Caffarelli charm and Poppy will be putty in his hands. But Rafe is shocked to his very core when the determined Poppy refuses to budge!
Rafe Caffarelli might be the most gorgeous man Poppy has ever laid eyes on, but she will not allow herself to be swayed by his athletic physique and film star good looks. Poppy has already paid a very high price for once letting her heart rule her head and she is not prepared to go through all that misery and heartache ever again. However, the more time she spends with Rafe, the more she finds herself unable to stop herself from succumbing to him!
Is Poppy prepared to put her heart on the line for the second time? And will Rafe finally realize that it’s not wealth or prestige that will make him happy, but Poppy’s everlasting love?
