Summary (From the publisher):

Not so long ago Emilio Brentani was a promising young author. Now he is an insurance agent on the fast track to forty. He gains a new lease on life, though, when he falls for the young and gorgeous Angiolina—except that his angel just happens to be an unapologetic cheat. But what begins as a comedy of infatuated misunderstanding ends in tragedy, as Emilio's jealous persistence in his folly—against his friends' and devoted sister's advice, and even his own best knowledge—leads to the loss of the one person who, too late, he realizes he truly loves.
