October 29th 2018 by Tule Publishing
Winemaker and single father Conor Flaherty is determined to make this Christmas holiday special for his daughter even though his family’s winery, Four Irish Brothers, is facing some challenges.
High-octane Chicago attorney Samantha Hayes is looking forward to some delicious food, fine wine, small town charm, and a break from her hectic big city life when she agrees to do a favor for her boss and help his younger brother with a lawsuit that’s been slapped on his family’s historic winery in River’s Edge. She’s not expecting that her sexy new client will have a smile that will melt her heart and remind her that there’s more to life than work.
Sam falls hard for Conor, his daughter and the small, friendly town, but can she trust her instincts and risk her heart? Sam hasn’t seen a lot of happy-ever-afters in her life, but Conor and the magic of Christmas make her want to believe.
A Small Town Christmas Excerpt 7
Her voice made him think of zin or petit Syrah—sultry and husky and as captivating as wine and chocolate. As a matter of fact, everything about her made him hungry, and that was something entirely new and unexpected, too. Since Emmy’s death, most food had tasted like ashes. He cooked for Ali and he ate because it was important to keep his strength up, but there was no pleasure in it anymore. Suddenly, as he eyed the new Gewürztraminer, he longed for apples and cheese and a loaf of warm crusty French bread. He eyed her for a moment before pushing away from the table. “Let’s have some more wine and we need something to eat with it.”
Again she stared at him in disbelief. “It’s nine o’clock in the morning.”
When she shook her head, a wisp of russet curl released to curve across her cheek. “I ate breakfast, thanks.”
“I didn’t. Think of it as brunch. People drink mimosas in the morning all the time.” Conor had no idea why it was so important to share food with this woman, but he found apples and an unopened chunk of Port Salut cheese in the chiller under the tasting bar and brought them to the table along with a paper plate and two small paring knives. He snatched the last loaf of bread from the display rack that Paula Meadows kept full from her bakery in town. It was probably still fresh enough. He wanted to watch Samantha Hayes eat, to see if she brought as much enjoyment to food as she did to the wine.
