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.

Excerpt #2

The weather had turned downright cold after last night’s rain and he felt around in Ali’s pockets for her mittens. “Be sure to put these on if you go outside today, okay?”

“Okay.” She was already distracted, clearly anxious to get into the building to play with her friends. “Come on, Da. Miss Karen’s mommy is bringing in kittens today.” Ali tugged at his hand. “I can’t wait to pet one. I love kitties, don’t you?”

Conor rolled his eyes, hoping Miss Karen’s mommy wasn’t expecting any of the parents to take a kitten home with them when they picked up their kids. Zin and Merlot, the two cats who lived at the winery took care of the critter problem just fine. He wasn’t up for introducing any new animals into their lives right now.

The Monday after Thanksgiving was generally a day when he took a breath and got the winery back to normal before the holiday rush began the following weekend. The tasting room in town needed to be restocked, a shipment of new bottles was due around noon, he had to hit the bank with the deposits from the long weekend, and, oh damn, there was that meeting with the attorney Sean had set up.

What is that guy’s name again?
