When the teenaged Simona Fiorello is orphaned, she is placed in the care of her Aunt, a nun at the Convent Ignatius in Sicily.As she grows into a beautiful young woman she is ready to make her own way in the world and jumps at the chance of a housekeeping job for Father Antonio's friend. Andrea is described to her as a wealthy landowner and she naturally assumes he is the same age as the older Father Antonio, who for the past 10 years has acted as her father.What a shock for her when she finds out that Andrea Baglione is not only a wealthy landowner but a devastatingly handsome young man who sets her heart pounding and her thoughts running wild. Yet, he seems to take great delight in teasing and embarrassing Simona at every turn.The path of true love never runs smooth. But with a little help from the aging priest, her Aunt, and of course, Andrea's close friend and butler Francesco, nothing is going to stop Andrea marrying the woman he loves - whatever it costs.
