Love the wine you’re with…

Alessandro Romeo is burned out after finally extricating himself from a nearly year-long relationship with a hot-tempered Italian model who set fire to his Lamborghini when she suspected him of cheating. He’s sworn off the fairer sex and instead spends his waking hours overseeing the expansion of his family’s hugely successful winery in the magnificent hills of Chianti, where he is happy to never see a model again, let alone date one.

American supermodel Taylor McFarland might be blond, but she sure isn’t dumb. And she’s smart enough to know to avoid the shallow men who seem to migrate toward her type, the ones who presume that models are the wild women of the fashion industry who happily discard men like used tissues.

Only Taylor’s not that type at all; instead, she’s intent on using the influence her position affords her to help those less fortunate than she.

But when her good deeds means clashing with the quintessential heartless Italian player who she’d heard left model Gia Sandretti at the altar, well, she will happily give him a piece of her mind, and certainly not a piece of her heart.

…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. 

“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….This is the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

--Midwest Book Review (Diane Donovan re For Now and Forever)

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers another winner when small-town matchmakers decide a billionaire is the perfect man for a sassy single mom who is too busy for love. 


"This is one of my favorite Romance books EVER!" ~Amazon Reader Review


When single-mom Clare Gray delivers her famous cupcakes to the general store on her way to work, she meets a sexy, out-of-town businessman who is in need of lodging...and match-making locals decide her available-for-rent spare room is the perfect solution.  


After becoming a widowed single mom at eighteen, Clare traded her dreams of love to focus on raising her daughter. The last thing she wants is for a man to invade her life, even if he is deliciously tempting and wonderful with her daughter. But when late-night cupcake baking turns intimate, suddenly her heart is at risk once again.


High-powered executive Griffin Friesé is in town on a personal mission, and he has no time for love. But when he moves into Clare's farmhouse, he soon finds that life doesn't always give you want you want…but it might give you exactly what you need. Gradually, Clare's smile, her passion for life, and her small-town loyalty awaken something inside him, something that makes him yearn for a life, a love, and a family he's never had. 


Can a single mom find the love and family she always wanted with a man afraid to open his heart?  


"What do I wish for?" Clare looked up at the stars, at the way they lit up the sky. "That's what I wish for." She gestured to the expanse of twinkling darkness. "A love so huge and so powerful, that it sweeps across everything. It's always there. It's fuller than a heart can hold, so it spills out into the world and fills everything around it with more love. It's there when I fall asleep. It's there when I wake up." She met Griffin's gaze. "It's there every time I breathe in, every time I breathe out, and with every beat of my heart."


"Heartwarming doesn't even begin to describe this romance! Wow!" ~Vickie R. (Amazon Review)


"I can't say enough good things about this book. I couldn't stop reading once I started." ~Carla E. (Amazon Review)

If this truck’s a-rockin’ don’t come a-knockin’ 

Jamie Lundquist had gone soft. More like squishy. Usually a lean, athletic surfer girl, the stress of her newly-divorced parents dueling for her undivided attention had driven her to seek solace in food and binge-watching TV shows, and her fat ass had become a testimonial to her woes. So with the New Year, she’s vowed to turn over a new leaf and get back in shape before surf season kicks in.

But temperatures rise and tempers flare when she has to wedge her car into a half space left by some jerk who straddled two spaces in the crowded gym parking lot, and he goes for the jugular, pointing out that she needs to stop criticizing him and get to the gym to rehabilitate her out-of-shape physique.

Carter Henderson’s day just keeps getting worse. First he flattens a skunk in his new truck, then he gets not one but two injuries during his pre-dawn workout. He just wants to get home, take a hot shower and ice his wounds before embarking on the first day of the new job he was so excited to start. Instead he finds himself a speechless combatant in a war of words with a snarky woman who’s all up his ass over his park job.

Jamie would like nothing more than to forget that the jerk existed. Until he turns up as the new chef at her father’s new restaurant, where she’s been waitressing while trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. And when her father refuses her demands to fire the moron, all bets are off as the heat is turned up to scorching in the kitchen to see who will bring the other down first.

Ya gotta hand it to him… 

When the teenaged Duchess Pippa Grimaldi walked in on her best friend's brother Prince Christopher in a particularly private moment, she about died of embarrassment. 

As did Topher, especially when his brother Zander and the rest of his royal siblings then promptly dubbed him the Wanker and never let him live down his public “exposure.” 
It seemed the only way he could escape his overwrought reputation was by fleeing Monaforte altogether, which he did for years. 

But when he finally returns to the European principality for the wedding of his brother Prince Adrian, Topher finds himself relishing a most unexpected one-night stand with none other than free-spirited Pippa. 
And while Topher would like nothing more than to nurture the secret crush he’d had on her for years, she decides the only way to spare him further shaming at the hands of his brothers is to get far, far away from him. Even if being with him stirs feelings she’s never felt with another man.
