With development encroaching on his family’s vineyard, Wade Nightingale has his eye on the property next door. To get it, he’ll have to go through Serenity Granger, the reckless girl he had a crush on all through high school. She’s a grown woman now and determined to save her family legacy from foreclosure. It’s easy to admire her tenacity but impossible to keep his hands off her.
When Serenity Granger was ten years old, Wade Nightingale didn’t know she existed unless she was getting into trouble at his family’s winery, which she’d done more often than she wanted to recall, but now he’s paying attention. When things heat up between them, she has to wonder—could he be the answer to all her grown-up fantasies? Or is he a snake in the vineyard, after the only thing that matters to him—her land?
