Between medical school, internship and residency, Mike Flynn hasn't had much time for women, although he sure would like to. He'd love to have someone to take care of... Having grown up not knowing who his father was, with his mother working two jobs, he learned early how to cook and clean, and puttering around the house became his form of relaxation. To him, there's nothing like vacuuming for clearing your mind, or washing a sinkful of dishes to calm you down. Annabelle Ronaldi is a domestically challenged artist with a loud and difficult Italian family. Two years ago, she was secretly engaged to the man of her dreams, but he died suddenly and her family doesn't even know about him. Since then, she can't paint, and she's pretty sure she'll never fall in love again. Under pressure from her mother, she got engaged again to a guy who promised security and not too many demands. But he's out of the picture now, too, after she caught him in bed with his assistant. Life is looking pretty hopeless for Annabelle. Until the day after her sister's wedding, when she wakes up with Mike next to her in bed, and then she's really beside herselfâ¿¿because the handsome stranger is a dead ringer for her dead fiancÃ©. After their mind-blowing one night stand, Mike is sure this is the woman he wants to take care of forever, but she acts like she's seen a ghost. In fact, unbeknownst to him, Mike is her late fiance's half-brother. While Mike sets to work wooing Annabelle, she sets to work sniffing out the truth of Mike's parentage, and unearths the convoluted family secret that turns everybody's lives upside down...
