I Love You More: A Sweet Contemporary Romance Novella (Kindle Edition)
A billionaire and a single mother have more in common than they know.
He’s a billionaire businessman …
Luciano Donati, entrepreneur and eligible bachelor, lost his first wife to cancer. So though he lives in romantic Charleston, SC, he has every intention of ignoring the upcoming holiday for lovers … at least until he sets eyes again on his younger sister’s best friend.
He remembers Anastasia as a teenager who idolized him, not this lovely, fragile woman with heartbreak in her eyes. Heartbreak that he finds himself wanting to cure. Her smile warms his soul, her touch ignites his desire, and her little girl Soo-Min melts his frozen heart. Adopted internationally himself at a young age, Luciano understands all too well the strong need to belong somewhere.
She’s a single mom …
Anastasia Markow, cancer survivor and divorced mother, didn’t come to Charleston, SC, for romance. She’s here to make sure she has custody of her adopted daughter, Soo-Min. But when she encounters the first man she ever loved, here in the city of horse-drawn carriages and candlelight, her battered heart can’t help but bloom again. And when Luciano and Soo-Min take to each other, resisting his charm becomes even harder.
Handsome, self-assured, every inch the successful billionaire, Luciano is out of Anastasia’s reach. But when a hurricane strands them together and they must trust each other to survive … things heat up despite the driving rain and gale winds.
Can Valentine’s Day bring this unlikely pair together … this time for good?
Author’s Note: Thousands of families around the world have opened their homes and hearts through international adoption. Soo-Min is the embodiment of many, many fortunate adoptive children and parents who’ve together created forever families.

From the Author
From the Inside Flap
“Josie Riviera sure knows how towrite heart tugging emotional stories and my only complaint is that Iwish this awesome tale was longer. I was instantly invested in all thecharacters lives and was cheering for all of them and the struggles they were dealing with. I can’t wait to read more by Ms. Riviera.”
“This is a story that grabbed mefrom the first line. It’s heart wrenching to hear about peoplestruggling with cancer and really uplifting to see how they triumph over their sickness and the temptation to sink into depression. Add to thatthe presence of an adorable five-year-old little girl adopted from theFar-East. We root for Anastasia who is raising her adopted daughter,fighting her disease and meanwhile falling in love with a gorgeousItalian from her past. Being adopted, Luciano understands her betterthan anyone else. A very enjoyable story with a lot of emotion and asprinkle of humor.”
