Look who’s grown up now…

Valentina Romeo loved a romantic wedding, and couldn’t wait to serve as an attendant in her favorite cousin Prince Luca of Monaforte’s upcoming nuptials.  She and Luca had reveled in childhood summers at the family estate on the Ligurian Sea. Many of her fondest memories were made there, along with one of her most humiliating, when Luca’s college roommate Parker shunned her brave declaration of love.

Investment banker Parker Hornsby hadn’t been back to Monaforte since he was in college. Back then he’d spent a glorious summer enjoying idyllic days at his best friend Luca’s family beach home. The fun was marred only by Luca’s obtrusive younger cousin Valentina, who could barely mask her crush on Parker, forcing him to flatly cut her off before she got her hopes up. The last thing Parker wanted was to be accused of going after his friend’s jailbait cousin, even if she was about the sweetest fourteen-year old girl he’d ever met. 

But when Parker shows up in Monaforte, paired in Luca’s wedding with Valentina, all bets are off on whether he can restrain himself from the beautiful—and fully grown-up—heiress to the world-famous Romeo wine label, or whether her remains the nemesis she thinks he is.

It's all fun and royal games until somebody's heart gets hurt 

In his line of work, royal heir Darcy Squires-Thornton has always been content playing second fiddle to close friend Prince Adrian, and happy, too, with whatever brief romantic encounters come his way. Especially one with carefree Caroline McKenzie, whose best friend is engaged to the prince. Fun-loving Caroline McKenzie's motto has always been "love the one you're with". But when the one she's no longer with is the one with whom she's fallen in love, what's a girl an ocean away to do? 

What people are saying about Jenny Gardiner's books: 

"A fun, sassy read! A cross between Erma Bombeck and Candace Bushnell, reading Jenny Gardiner is like sinking your teeth into a chocolate cupcake…you just want more." 
--Meg Cabot, NY Times bestselling author of Princess Diaries, Queen of Babble and more, on Sleeping with Ward Cleaver 

"As Sweet as a song and sharp as a beak, Bite Me really soars as a memoir about family--children and husbands, feathers and fur--and our capacity to keep loving though life may occasionally bite." 
--Wade Rouse, bestselling author of At Least in the City Someone Would Hear Me Scream 

"With a strong yet delightfully vulnerable voice, food critic Abbie Jennings embarks on a soulful journey where her love for banana cream pie and disdain for ill-fitting Spanx clash in hilarious and heartbreaking ways. As her body balloons and her personal life crumbles, Abbie must face the pain and secret fears she's held inside for far too long. I cheered for her the entire way." 
--Beth Hoffman, NY Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt on Slim to None 

"Jenny Gardiner has done it again--this fun, fast-paced book is a great summer read." 
--Sarah Pekkanen, NY Times bestselling author of The Opposite of Me, on Slim to None

…Who needs a spoon when he’s so finger lickin’ good?

Celebrity TV show host Sophie Pellegrino’s life needs a little kick-start. Watching her best friend fall head-over-heels for a handsome Italian man had already stirred up Sophie’s longings to at the very least get in touch with her Italian roots. She’d be even happier if she could get in touch with an Italian man while she was at it. Preferably while drinking plenty of delicious Italian wine. When she lands her dream assignment hosting a “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” type of show, she seizes the opportunity to attempt all of the above when she decides to take her show in the road to the world-renowned vineyard Cantine Marchesi Romeo in Chianti. Italy? Check. Fine wine? Check. Italian man? With some luck, maybe she could find herself a Romeo playmate and score her own personal hat trick while basking beneath the Tuscan sun.

Lorenzo Romeo, a playboy whose friends liked to joke that he put the “roam” in Romeo, is tired of being used as the face of Romeo wines. For too long, his brother Alessandro has made Lorenzo serve as the mouthpiece for the family empire, and he’s over being just another pretty face to sell wine. He wants to be taken seriously. So when an American woman shows up wanting to capitalize on his good looks to score some television ratings, he wants nothing to do with her show or her. And when his brother forces him to be a gracious host, Lorenzo digs deep to shun the stunning intruder who is clearly intent on making his life a living hell.

Too bad for him, Sophie’s not going to let some conceited Italian Alpha Dog get in the way of her professional success, even if that means running roughshod over his bloated ego, and maybe even his fragile heart. 

Locked Lips Sink Ships... Lady Clementine needs a getaway. Badly. The best way to get her mind off of the unexpected loss of her beloved father is to usher her best friend Pippa away to a surprise Caribbean rendezvous with Prince Christopher. It's an added bonus that she stumbles upon her own tropical fling with boat captain Sebastian, Topher's cousin. 
Sebastian Chevalier walked away from Monaforte long ago. Weary of dealing with the fallout from his parents' on again/off again union, he sought solace in the water and never looked back. And he isn't about to allow even the irresistible charm of Clementine to get in the way of his carefree existence, and readily gives her the old heave-ho.   
But can Clementine take the wind out of his footloose and fancy-free sails?

 **Author's note: Dear readers: this is a reissue of my memoir "Winging It: A Memoir of Caring for a Vengeful Parrot Who's Determined to Kill Me". I have always wanted to offer the digital version of this book at an affordable rate and have finally gotten the rights back to my book to do so. With this I changed the title and the cover. Hope you enjoy! 


A gift from an overseas relative, Graycie, an African Grey parrot, arrives in the Gardiner home not long after the birth of their first child, adding the responsibilities of parrot-hood to their newfound parenthood. Jenny Gardiner and her husband were hoping for a docile, beautifully plumed, Polly-want-a-cracker type of companion—but patchily feathered, scrawny, ill-tempered Graycie was the furthest thing from what they envisioned.. 

In Winging It , Gardiner shares in vivid and hilarious detail the many hazards of parrot ownership, from endless avian latrine duty to discovering the multiple ways a beak can pierce human flesh. Whether she’s swearing at the dog, mimicking the sound of the smoke alarm, or bobbing to the beat of the kids clapping for her amusement, she brings the family joy, laughter, and, sometimes, tears. So why would the Gardiners subject themselves to the crazy behavior of this parrot for so long? Well, because, as the Gardiners realize, Graycie is a part of the family, and just like in any relationship between living creatures, things do not always go according to plan.. 

A mix of hilarious pet hijinks and a poignant story of family commitment, Winging It is a reminder of the importance of patience, loyalty, and humor when it comes to dealing with even the most temperamental members of the family.
