Marti and Riba Beaumont are daughters of the glittering California wine dynasty of Chateau Beaumont, yet no sisters could be more different. Marti is the selfess one, training her mind to carry on her father's work while hiding her woman's heart. Riba is the reckless one, using her dazzling blond beauty to blind her father to her wanton ways, devouring one man after another to satisfy her sensual hunger. Since childhood they have been rivals for their father's affection and for the wealth and power that would come to the one who controlled Chateau Beaumont. Then Adam Wade drifts into the valley, a handsome, mysterious stranger they both desire, whose plan for vengeance no one can guess. As Marti and Adam are drawn into a swirl of hidden secrets, sinister intrigue, and naked passion, they discover that trust is a blind gamble and love is a desperate risk.
I enjoyed this story very much.
Extraordinary characters and breathtaking love scenes.
From the manicured lawns of the Meadowood Country Club to the muddy fields of Chateau Beaumont to the art colony in the New Orleans French Quarter, death and danger lurk for those who live and love in the season of the wine growers.
