Rome, hot Italian men, the Mediterranean, yachts…. Oh, yeah!
I got the inspiration for Making Over The Billionaire while traveling in Italy last year. The ancient city of Rome is picturesque, the food is yummy and the men are sooo hot.
Many of the places and people I encountered on my journey found their way into the book. My heroine, Layla, is American and new to the city, so everything about it is interesting to her–as it was to me.
My hero, Giorgio’s villa looked out over the rooftops in a scene similar to the one above.
Giorgio was inspired by the gorgeous soccer player, Fabio Cannavaro. Love those smouldering dark good looks! And the abs, can’t forget the abs. J
And now for some eye candy. Take a look at my Pinterest board of the hot Italian men that inspire my heroes.
