Julia Costa isn’t about to let an Englishman — or any man, for that matter — waltz into her vineyards and tell her how to run her business.
After losing her husband and gaining his substantial debt, Julia Costa knew it was only a matter of time before creditors came knocking at her door. She’s the best winemaker in the Douro, and she’ll stop at nothing to protect her legacy. Including refusing to fall for a dashing Englishman who’s come to collect what she owes…
Griffin Maxwell needs to secure Ms. Costa’s payment to regain his family’s status.
With an offer he can’t refuse from a powerful man, Griffin agrees to chase a reluctant debtor. But Julia Costa isn’t what he expects. She’s headstrong, tempestuous, and sweeps him into the vibrant culture of 1870’s Portugal. He learns more about himself and his roots than he ever expected… and finds himself falling for the full-bodied, sweet, and fiery Julia.
When cultures clash, things turn sour…
Julia knows the man feels entitled to her lands, her wine, and her heart. Resisting him is still no easy task. Griffin knows she’s not the proper Englishwoman he intended to marry. Driven apart by cultural differences and deep secrets, they must compromise to face a new threat to the vineyards head-on… or lose everything.
