Happy Wine Wednesday! I mentioned last week that I had some new plans for my Wednesday posts on the blog and so here is something I am trying out - pairing wine and romance reads. Since this is kind of a trial run, I am using my own book, Moontide - Tides of Atlantis.
As you all have probably gathered from my previous posts, I'm going at this not from the perspective of a wine connoisseur (AT ALL, though I do like drinking it A LOT:) but rather from my love for the wine bottle aesthetic. I have a lot of fun finding interesting,beautiful and sometimes creatively stirring bottle labels to post pics of and feature here on the blog. So, with that in mind, I am going to try to continue to post about great and beautiful bottles of wine and also...BOOKS!! (schmancey romancey books
I'm going to try to bring you some fun pairings for my books, books I've read and also books from some new authors whose work you might not have learned of yet.
Author friends, if you have a book of your own that you would like me to pair and feature, be sure to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I have lots of really cool bottles waiting to be paired with great romance reads so I'm very excited to get to posting them here and on my social media sites.
In the mean time, enjoy the Clifford Bay Savignon Blanc, a Marlborough, New Zealand wine. I picked it for Moontide, of course for the water and tides theme and the blue colors on the label but also because diving into the world of Poseidon's Tides of Atlantis is even more of an adventure with a wineglass in hand.
If you haven't read Moontide yet, you can find it on Amazon or even read it for free on Kindle Unlimited.

As always, no matter what you are drinking, happy reading on this Wine Wednesday!
Tides of Atlantis
Mankind and the gods alike have grown complacent and the restless forces of the underworld that have been simmering beneath the surface are coming out to play. They will not stop until their thirst for vengeance is satisfied and all worlds have returned to yawning pre-time chaos.
Ten lost kings ─ sons of Poseidon─ and rulers of a condemned land are our last hope…if only they can be found. Cursed by the gods after the fall of Atlantis, the kings have passed into anonymity with no memory of who they are. Forces of both good and evil are hunting them. Poseidon needs them to win the war for the universe. Evil is bent on their destruction.
Upon A Moonswept Tide…
Trapped in time…Ronan Garring is a man of action; a ship captain who has sailed the seas from Europe to the Caribbean…in the seventeenth century. When he is tricked by a sea nymph, he is sent to a deserted island in Poseidon’s realm to serve the gods for all time. On a mission to modern day Miami, he finds his earth home crawling with underworld evil and is waylaid by an enchanting human woman who seems to stall his attempts at completing his quest at every turn. He can’t be sure if she is an entirely innocent wrecking ball or the agent of a more sinister force. Against all his good intentions, he finds himself continually, albeit pleasantly, entangled with her both in this world and beyond.
Searching…for a friend whose gone missing, Cindy Pierce left the Rocky Mountains for the beaches of Miami to try to make sense of, what looks to be, a hopeless case. As the trail grows cold, she stumbles into an intriguing dark stranger and is literally knocked flat. Fierce and intense as he is, towering over her and exuding old world masculinity, she can’t help her body’s immediate response to him. When she finds herself being chased across the southern tip of Miami and into the Florida Keys by the handsome foreigner however, she’s convinced he’s not only psychotic but intent on doing her harm. Once she finds herself in his arms again though, her attraction to him can’t be denied and neither can the fact that he may be the only one who can save her from the dark forces at work on the beach.
Join the race to find the kings in Amanda V. Shane’s new Tides of Atlantis series and help them to discover their soul mates, the women who will win their lost hearts and help them fulfill their destiny!
