Free-spirited Brianna Ballantine has four days to find a fiancé so she can inherit her birth mother’s Italian villa. Commitment is not on the agenda. Writing her book and signing legal papers are. And once all is said and done, she’ll return home to Australia, but not without a little fun first.

For finance guru Tomas Richards, relationships have been a bad investment—give him stocks and shares any day. When Tomas offers a marriage of convenience to help Brianna secure her inheritance, this gorgeous, quirky woman promises an affair to remember, despite family complications at every turn.



Against a perfect Italian romantic backdrop, Annie Seaton has given us a story about finding your true self as well as finding your true love. If you pick up no other summer read this year, at least pick up this one. Just like her previous release HOLIDAY AFFAIR, which is Book 1 of her Affair Series, this is a worthwhile piece of women's fiction as well as a romance read. It ticks all the boxes when it comes to a good romance read. Don't miss it.

ITALIAN AFFAIR is Book II in Annie Seaton's Affair Series.

Ladies, meet Tomas Richards. He's the kind of man your mother would love you to hook up with. Sensible? Certainly. Financially sound? He's a bursar, for Heaven's sake, the man is an accountant. Get your hands on this guy, you're set up for life .Just the kind of man you want to bank on for a secure ...more

Don't miss out on this when it's released!
This story had the same easy-to-read, fun style as 'Holiday Affair' and I really enjoyed it.

The opening was intriguing, with a rushed flight across the world and a desperate situation. Brianna was a disorganised, independent woman with a hole in her past tha ...more

Brianna Ballantyne had barely arrived in Australia when the letter from Italy finally caught up with her. She had until the end of the week to meet the lawyer on Lipari Island – with her fiance – and claim her inheritance. Only one little problem? The disorganized sex-therapist-slash-writer has misp ...more

By Roz ~ My Written Romance June 13, 2013

I’ll tell you, people, after reading this wonderful book, I felt like taking a holiday to Lipari Island. Oh my, it sounds just wonderful. Annie Seaton has such a marvellous and vivid way of describing the characters and the location, you feel as if you are right there on the journey with them.

In thi ...more

It’s years since I’ve read any romantic fiction. Years. ‘Italian Affair’ might just be the book to get me into the genre again. It was like bumping into an old friend I hadn’t seen for ages. There was the handsome but uptight hero; the feisty and beautiful heroine – so much, so familiar. Anyone who ...more

By Susanne May 21, 2013

Annie Seaton’s AFFAIR stories really are “Affairs to Remember”. First there was Holiday Affair which told the story of Nick and Lissy and introduced Nick’s exuberant Aussie Italian family. Now it’s brother Tomas’s turn. From Australia’s New South Wales coast, we head to Europe and the glories of the ...more

By Alison June 09, 2013

I was given an early review copy of this book in return for an honest review.

As I'm about to take a long overdue trip to Italy myself, the frenetic pace at the beginning of this one - which begins in Australia, involves a stop over in Singapore and the ultimate destination of Italy was quite topical ...more

By Carmen June 12, 2013

It’s been a while since I last read an opposites attract book with characters so likeable like Brianna and Tom. Brianna is a free spirit, always forgetting things, loopy but with a heart of gold. Tom is her polar opposite, always making lists, punctual, and super appropriate – here’s a guy who flies ...more

By Fiona June 12, 2013

A lovely second outing in this series. Tom is adorable as the uptight bursar more comfortable with figures than emotions though he is certain that marriage is the right thing to do.

Brianna, adopted at birth by a Scottish family is the very opposite, disorganised, a free spirit and totally opposed to ...more

By Christy Kate May 26, 2013

Brianna isn't the type to settle down. She wouldn't even be considering marriage if it wasn't the only thing standing between her and her inheritance. Brianna has four days to find a husband or lose the only link she has to the mother she never knew. Tom doesn't know the first thing about spontaneit ...more

By Amanda May 31, 2013

Ms Seaton has hit the spot again - the perfect holiday read. Whether it is on the beach in summer or curled up in front of a log fire her wonderful characters will dance off the page and draw you into their world. List driven Tom in his immaculate suit is the perfect foil for the feisty, disorganise ...more

Annie Seaton hits the nail on the head of our hearts and loins with her newest release, "Italian Affair." Seaton creates characters who are likable, realistic, and humanly flawed, doing their best in life and love. This is a sweet and hot book I recommend to anyone looking for an unforgettable love ...more

By Maria May 31, 2013

What an absolutely wonderful book, I loved Brianna and fell in love with the uptight Tomas, but what a gem and hero he turned out to be.
Highly recommended read

Well done Annie Seaton for another great page turner.......... ...more

By Isha December 03, 2017

For Tomas and Brianna love and trust does not come easily. Brianna yearns for a connection to her past. Tomas is running away from his. Will a stipulation in a will prove a blessing in disguise? Between the beautifully descriptive nod to scenic Italy and the hypnotizing waltz of relationship of conv ...more

By Tracie December 02, 2017

Italian Affair was a great story. I really like the way Brianna and Thomas’s relationship developed, their interaction was relatable and created a well written romance. I am really enjoying this series and if you love a good romance I would suggest picking it up. ...more

3.5 stars

First I would like to say that Brianna loses her stuff, is a little messy and not even a bit organised. I didn't like that but some people can help it. She and Tom are opposites when they first met. He has his list of things to do when he is on vacation. She doesn't even book a hotel.

This i ...more

By Genevieve June 11, 2013

The cover for this book is a perfect representation of the story and the characters. Brianna is a cutie with a Scottish accent that prattles on when she is nervous, but she is also very sexy. And, Tomas is an Alpha male with a polished style (I.E suits and manicured nails). At first you think he is ...more

Another fantastic 'Affair' story by the super talented Annie Seaton. I loved Holiday Affair and loved Italian Affair even more! Sex therapist Brianna has the small matter of finding a husband so that she can inherit her birth mother's Italian villa. Cue finance guru, dishy Tom! Straight away , I ado ...more

Take a stuffy list maker, a sex therapist, a stipulation in a will and see what happens. Annie Seaton takes us on another journey which will leave you crying one minute and cheering the next. Her characters are so lovable one minute and frustrating the next. Truly full of life people you can relate ...more

Italian sun and sea, a lady sex therapist and a list-making financier: what's not to like?! Another indulgent page-turner from Annie Seaton and I'm SO looking forward to the next book in her Affair series. Seriously good stuff. ...more

Their two children are now grown up and married, and three beautiful grandchildren have arrived. Now they share their home with Toby, the naughtiest dog in the universe, and two white cats. When she is not writing Annie can be found in her garden or walking on the beach... or most likely on her deck overlooking the ocean, camera in hand as the sun sets. Each winter, Annie and her husband leave the beach to roam the remote areas of Australia for story ideas and research. Readers can contact Annie through her website or find her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
