Regan Martin stopped believing in Christmas miracles the day she discovered her fiancé was already married.
The fallout cost her everything - her career, her home, and her impeccable reputation in the wine industry. But now she has a second chance with a dream job in the Napa Valley, and a cozy cottage for her and her daughter, whose one Christmas wish is for a forever home.
But those hopes are threatened when Gabe DeLuca, the scorned wife’s brother, tries to drive Regan out of town - even if he can’t seem to drive the luscious beauty from his thoughts. When his attempts to get her to leave backfire, he sees that Regan may hold the key to tracking down his sister’s stolen start-up capital. As Christmas nears, Gabe realizes Regan might even be his Christmas wish and hold the key to his heart.
Marina Adair is a true visionary as to what romance novels are all about! Marina writes with deep purpose on the true essence of love and romance.
Her books are sexy, fabulously romantic, and FUNNY! Her ideas are unique and well researched, and her characters are REAL. I promise you will personally know someone with the same traits of her characters and laugh out loud!! I also love how I connect with and feel the emotion of her characters so deeply.
Marina’s voice and language is brilliantly well crafted . Marina articulates and builds the story with precision organization and it all unfolds so beautifully… She expresses her ideas clearly, and solves the “problem” with exceptional expertise that I anxiously await the outcome!
I love how her books are thought provoking, as well as emotionally inspiring to have us reflect on our own personal romantic lives.
Marina Adair is by far my FAVORITE author! When I complete a book, I anxiously anticipate her next book release!
I knew this book was going to be good when I laughed outloud twice before I had read 25 pages. The story is solid, the romance, as is too often the case, a struggle up hill, but in the end, totally worth the effort. I will never make a recommendation or review for a novel that isn't worth it, but Marina Adair won me over on this, the first of the St. Helena Vineyard Series. Be warned, you will laugh out loud while reading this. Not the small snickering giggles but the loud barking laughter that will have people staring.
