She is the local healer and possible psychic in a quaint Italian village in The Scarletti Curse. When Don Giovanni Scarletti picks her to become the new Scarletti wife, innocent Nicoletta becomes determined to break the curse over the Scarletti family to save herself and Giovanni's niece, Sophie, who is also in danger despite her fear of the curse. The locals have named the house Palazzo del Morte (Palace of Death) because the Scarletti wives suffer mysterious and tragic deaths within its walls. According to the legend, all the wives that enter the Scarletti home leave in a coffin. Nicoletta is the ancestor of Antonietta Scarletti, lifemate to Byron Justicano.
