It's that day again! Time for books and wine, two of our favorite things here on the blog. This Wine Wednesday, I have a super hot pair for you, both direct from my home state. One of my favorite authors, best seller Pamela Clare, brings us another terrific adventure romance with Slow Burn, the second book in her Colorado High Country series. I'm loving these novels set in the Colorado mountains and featuring the hottest rescue team you'll ever find. Slow Burn pairs perfectly with this absolutely beautiful Savignon Blanc from Colorado's own Grande River Vineyards. I found this lovely bottle at a "Wine in the Pines" event last fall and took a picture for the blog right there on the spot (my husband's arm is even in the background, lol). Between Clare, a Colorado author, Slow Burn and Grande River, this post is filled with all kinds of love for my home state and I want you join in on the experience. Grab up a copy of the book, fill your glass with some crisp, delicious Grande River Sav Blanc and slip away on your very own Rocky Mountain adventure.
Happy Wine Wednesday, everyone and, as always, happy reading!
Victoria Woodley is done with men. Fresh off a dating nightmare, she flies from her home in Chicago to Scarlet Springs to take part in her best friend’s wedding. Who picks her up at the airport? Eric Hawke. Of course. She made a fool of herself over him last time she was here. He’s cocky, charming, and sexy as sin. But the fact that she’s attracted to him is all the proof she needs that he’s bad news. She would ignore him if she could. But he’s the best man, and she’s the maid of honor. She can’t just tell him to jump in a lake—especially not when her lips are locked with his.
Eric isn’t looking for a relationship. Between running the firehouse and volunteering for the county’s search and rescue team, he has enough on his plate. He doesn’t need to get tangled up with a woman from the big city, especially one whose idea of roughing it is going without designer coffee. Yet from the moment he looks into Victoria’s big brown eyes, the attraction he feels is too strong to deny. Faster than he can imagine, the spark of desire that has smoldered between them since the first day they met will flare into full-blown passion.
But can Eric convince Victoria to set aside her doubts and trust him with her heart before their time together runs out?
Happy Wine Wednesday everybody! I know I've been MIA the last couple of weeks but now I'm back with a hot, new pairing for you. This week's wine / book love affair is brought to you by USA Today Bestselling Author, Pamela Clare's Barely Breathing and Mile High Winery's American Zinfandel. I put these two together after finishing the book to show a little love to my home state. Both the wine and the author are home grown Coloradans and Clare's amazing Colorado High Country series is all Colorado mountain life, all the time.
I've been a fan of Clare's books for a long time and really love her historical romances but Barely Breathing brings the small town, mountain setting to life. Throughout the book, I found myself shaking my head and thinking, 'Yup. I know these people.' There's a lot of action in the books to keep you on the edge of your seat, hot, sexy romance and a bunch of hunky, mountain climbing rescue team heroes. Yay, Colorado! Be sure to add this book to your TBR and grab yourself a glass from The Mile High Winery to go with. Again, my F'sWB -friends with books ;), happy Wine Wednesday and happy reading!
A hot contemporary romance from the author of the acclaimed I-Team series…
Lexi Jewell left Scarlet Springs twelve years ago, vowing never to return to the small Colorado mountain town where she grew up. Now, here she is—over thirty, out of a job and with little choice but to move back in with her eccentric father. Lexi knows it’s just a matter of time before she runs into Austin Taylor, her first boyfriend and her first heartbreak. She’s determined to show him she’s over him—until he steps out of a pickup truck and back into her life, looking sexy as hell in his mountain ranger uniform.
As far as Austin is concerned, Lexi can turn her snazzy little convertible around and drive back to Chicago. After all, she ripped his teenage heart to pieces and turned her back on the town he loves. But from the moment he sees her again, he can’t get her out of his mind. Even her smile messes with his head.
When an evening of conversation turns into something else, Lexi and Austin agree to be friends—with benefits. But as Lexi starts making plans to return to the big city, Austin realizes he’ll lose her a second time unless he can show her that what she’s searching for has been right here all along.
