Marcos Casacelli is the oldest brother of the wealthy, dynamic and powerful Casacelli family. Dealing with the fallout from a shocking family scandal, he takes himself to his Tuscan villa, the stunning Vista Mare. What he wants is privacy to deal with the discovery of his mother's betrayal.
So when his oldest friend asks him for a favour - to shelter the beautiful, yet perennially troubled television actress Kat Van Buren - he desperately wants to refuse. Only Marcos is nothing if not loyal, and the bonds of friendship are ones he believes worth honoring at all costs. Even if it means putting up with a very spoiled, very tempting starlet in his midst.
Kat knows what Marcos Casacelli thinks of her. The first time he met her, he lectured her over her disappointing behaviour, and nothing in his attitude leads her to believe his opinion has changed. He loathes her. But she is in desperate need of a safe haven and Marcos, and his captivating Vista Mare, is it. She has no choice but to put her life in his hands.
However, she isn't prepared for the burning attraction she begins to feel for her unwilling helper. He's her brother's best friend, and is strictly off limits, but suddenly, he's the one man in the world capable of setting her heart on fire, and nothing else seems to matter. Not the stalker who's pursuing her across the globe, and not her powerful brother who would certainly disapprove of the match. When Kat sets her sights on something, she gets it. And she wants Marcos Casacelli, regardless of the consequences.
The third book in the popular Casacelli series, The Tycoon's Christmas Captive is full of passion, lust, drama and festive atmosphere.
