A Kiss of Cabernet by Pamela Gibson
The sweetest vintage of all is the one you can’t have…
Napa Valley vineyard manager Paige Reynoso is furious. After a six-year absence, her boss―big-city entrepreneur Jake Madison―has returned, only to announce he’s selling the vineyard. Paige has always dreamed of buying Garnet Hill, which sits on land where her ancestors first settled, but without the cash, she’s out of luck. And then there’s an even bigger problem…she has a serious thing for the surprisingly tempting man who’s just destroyed her dream.
Jake’s in a tight spot. With his other business ventures struggling, he needs cash—fast. The last thing he needs is the too-lovely Paige convincing him the grapes are an effective long-term investment. Or needing Paige herself, whose spirit and heart bring his to life. But as their attraction grows, Jake knows he’s not in a position to offer her anything beyond this moment. Because Jake has a big secret…and it has nothing to do with sour grapes.

Ryan Jordan can’t believe his dad wants him to ask Lisa to move in with him until she finds another place. She’s too uptight, too nerdy, and too much of a stickler for propriety, even though he knows she has as much right to their parents’ house as he does. The fact that the pesky girl he remembered has blossomed into a beautiful woman doesn’t help. And the teensy bit of drunken groping they engaged in at their parents’ recent wedding still invades his sleep.
