When Emily takes a summer job in Italy, she doesn't bargain for falling in lust with her employer Roberto, a devilishly handsome businessman.
Emily, a young graduate, takes a summer job in Italy, teaching English to ten-year-old Silvia. Her boyfriend Andrew is not best pleased, but he eventually agrees and is delighted when Emily suggests he can join her for a holiday.
Since their first meeting, Emily falls in lust for her employer, Roberto Garanti. She is resolved to fight off her attraction to the handsome, rich businessman because Roberto is also engaged, to glamorous Lucia.
But the raw passion Roberto inspires Emily reminds her of her first love, Martin, who seduced and betrayed her. When Andrew comes to visit her, Emily realises she has fallen in love with Roberto.
Then Martin turns up at the village’s wine fair. Confused, Emily fends off Roberto's and Martin’s attentions and gets in trouble with a jealous Lucia, who takes her revenge by seducing Andrew.
Emily breaks up with Andrew. Martin gets off her case when he meets Marina, the daughter of Roberto's housekeeper.
Roberto finds out about Lucia’s indiscretion and breaks their engagement. Now they are free, Emily cannot trust Roberto, until he opens his heart.
