Tempt Me, Taste Me, Touch Me
Pocket Books, January 2007
California wine country is a world of sensual delights — the tantalizing kiss of sunlight . . . the luscious decadence of gourmet cuisine . . . the slow burn of wine that warms from within . . . and sinfully sexy men. For three women hungering for more, it’s a destination for pleasuring both body and soul. . . .
Carrie can’t explain why she turned down a marriage proposal from Mr. Perfect. But a chance encounter with a rugged winemaker who works the earth unleashes something wild in her. His raw, hungry power has her intoxicated with desire — and she knows it’s useless to resist. . . .
After voluptuous Rose is left by her boyfriend for a thinner woman, she’s in for a sensual shock when she falls for a chef who can’t get enough of her luscious curves. One taste of his lovemaking will never be enough. . . .
Vanessa is used to loving and leaving her men. And the man she wants now is an intense artist who has her modeling nude amid the Napa vineyards. But this time, he’s the one playing hard to get — and their heated game of “look but don’t touch” will soon have Vanessa begging for release. . . .
Because where there’s wine and women, there’s bound to be seduction.
Romantic Times Magazine, 4 1/2 stars: In this outstanding sensual delight, the beauty and sensuality of the wine country is vividly portrayed as all three characters find unexpected pleasure with unexpected men. The characters are appealing and well-developed, and the sex scenes sizzle as each woman finds her true love. The conflicts standing in the way of true love are clearly
developed, and the romance is as strong as the sex.
