Summary

"The wine! The food! The Italian!" 
She's come to Italy for a little adventure, good food, and a last trip with her college-aged daughter. When a good-looking Italian winemaker invites her to dinner, she finds more than she anticipated. But how can romance in Italy be more than a fling when she lives on the California coast? 
Elizabeth Ladina took one risk in her life and she's vowed not to make another. Although she had a good life (she thought) with her deceased husband, and she loves her daughter, Sarah, life as a single parent wasn't easy and there was certainly no time for romance. But an Italian winemaker sparks something inside her she's never felt before. If she doesn't take a chance now, will another one ever come along? 
Divorced winemaker Marcos Gamari has a dream—to grow the best varietal wines from their ideal growing place, no matter where in the world that is. With vineyards in Italy and France, it's time to set his sights on the Americas, preferably in Napa or Sonoma. But the American woman intrigues him with her tales of boutique wineries hidden in the Santa Cruz Mountains, not to mention her kissable mouth. 
California Wine is a story about two people who need to decide if they are willing to take a risk with each other. If you enjoy women's fiction with romantic elements, you'll enjoy this book. 
Buy California Wine, the second book in the California Coast Romance Series, and settle down with a glass of wine for a comfortable read.

    When Caroline Trent is kidnapped by Blake Ravenscroft, she doesn't even try to elude this dangerously handsome agent of the crown. After all, she's been running from unwanted marriage proposals. Yes, Blake believes she's a notorious spy named Carlotta De Leon, but for six weeks until her twenty-first birthday, when she'll gain control of her fortune, hiding out in the titillating company of a mysterious captor is awfully convenient -- and maybe just a little romantic, too. 
    Blake Ravenscroft's mission is to bring "Carlotta" to justice, not to fall in love. His heart has been hardened by years of intrigue, but this little temptress proves oddly disarming and thoroughly kissable. And suddenly the unthinkable becomes possible -- that this mismatched Couple might be destined for love.

    From New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the third novel in the beloved Regency-set world of her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. 
       
    Sophie Beckett never dreamed she'd be able to sneak into Lady Bridgerton's famed masquerade ball—or that "Prince Charming" would be waiting there for her! Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie has been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But now, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she feels like royalty. Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight. 
     
    Ever since that magical night, a radiant vision in silver has blinded Benedict to the attractions of any other—except, perhaps, this alluring and oddly familiar beauty dressed in housemaid's garb whom he feels compelled to rescue from a most disagreeable situation. He has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, but this breathtaking maid makes him weak with wanting her. Yet, if he offers her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love? 
    This novel includes The 2nd epilogue, a peek at the story after the story.

    The future Duke of Barrington has just been gambled away by his father. To an heiress! 
    The delicious details thus far... 
    Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, never intended to marry—nor add to the “mad” Hatherly line—but now he must honor his father’s debt to a social-climbing merchant or lose the family estate.  
    A notoriously wild marquess, won by her father at a game of cards, is the very last thing Miss Alice Tombs wants. She’s spent the last three seasons repelling suitors in spectacular fashion so she’d be at liberty to explore the world. She’ll just have to drive this one away as well. 
    Until Nick proposes an utterly tempting arrangement: one summer together to prove the legitimacy of their union, then Alice is free to travel while Nick revels in the time he has left before the Hatherly Madness takes hold. 
    It will be easy to walk away after a few months of make-believe wedded bliss—won’t it? Alice and Nick are about to find out...one sultry night at a time.
