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?

Out to prove himself as more than the playboy everyone believes him to be, Sean Nightingale risked his personal fortune on a Southern California vineyard in hopes of creating the perfect blend to put his family’s business back on top of the high-end wine market. He hadn’t anticipated the former owner’s daughter, Angellica Capello, being the perfect blend of beauty and brains—a combination that will also put his heart at risk.
Devastated that her father sold the family business to a well-known playboy, Angellica Capello hates Sean Nightingale on sight, but after working a difficult harvest with him, it’s apparent there’s more to the man than a pretty face. But can she trust him to stick around once he gets what he wants? Or is the attraction building between them the foundation for a love that will stand the test of time?
