Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage by Gorga (with Val Frankel) will focus on her life with husband Joe, her secrets of how she keeps things "sexy and real," and how pleasing her husband "informs and influences every other aspect" of her life. She'll give readers "practical strategies on how to strengthen their marriage" and "amp up the passion."

“I can’t tell you how many times Joe and I are approached by fans asking how they can have a marriage like ours,” says Melissa in a statement. “A great marriage doesn’t just happen. It’s a job. I work on my marriage every single day."
