SPRINKLE an emotionally unavailable woman, a lovelorn man, and some delicious chemistry into the middle of wine country then candy coat it with a whole lotta passion when a friends-with-benefits arrangement turns a vacation into an unexpected journey.

Blanca Grazia, queen of calm, has it all under control. Headstrong. Self-reliant. Determined. She thrives on an intriguing challenge.

So, when Blanca’s bestie, Maxine Novaline, begs her to distract Maxie’s boyfriend’s cousin while he’s visiting them in Napa Valley, California, Blanca is all about stepping it up for her BFF. Hot French guy? Yes, please.

All Blanca plans on doing is the–ehem–favor. Then she’ll just friend-zone Julien L’Angevin’s butt all the way back home to France where he belongs.

… Until that wrecking ball of a man decides to cash in on a favor of his own.

All Julien wants is another opportunity to see what this wild, pint-sized, fireball of independence is actually made of. Sugar? Spice? Everything nice?

Counting on Blanca’s wanderlust for worldly adventures, Julien invites her to his home in Champagne. A traveling opportunity the American beauty can’t resist.

So what if they decide to add a little pinch of friends-with-benefits to the mix after they come face to face once more and realize that their physical chemistry can’t be denied.

Besides, their arrangement is only for one week. Then they’ll be continents apart again, and life will go on. Right?

LOVE THE WINE YOU’RE WITH is about a young woman bent on staying single while falling in love one scintillating wine tasting at a time.

Celebrating the Little Things

I’m celebrating the small things in life as I drag my weary butt towards the end of another successful school year.

The sun is finally shining after a gloomy stretch of April showers. There was enough non-stop drizzle to have me scratching my head, questioning if I really do live in my beloved parched state of California. Yeah, Baby!

Speaking of California, state testing is officially a thing of the past, and my darling students are now diving head first into S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders because I always save the best for last. Woot! Woot!

And… I am in panic mode—I mean thrill mode—hammering out the crazy adventure I’m putting my main character Victoria through in my work-in-progress Wine Not? It’s the third novel in my Vineyard Pleasures Series that I will be knocking out once summer is mine all mine. Huzzah!

In the spirit of recognizing simple pleasures as something worthy of all these corny, italicized interjections I’ve sprinkled everywhere, I have decided to drop the price of my Vineyard Pleasures Series books, Whine with Cheese and Love the Wine You’re With, to all of .99 each for the next week! Sweeeet!

If you love a lighthearted romantic comedy, guaranteed to end with a happily-ever-after, these books are a perfect weekend read. I highly recommend pairing them with some wine and cheese while you put your feet up and celebrate some me time reading. In fact, here’s an Awesome Sauce exclamation just for you!

All of my novels are ALWAYS FREE in Kindle Unlimited, in case you didn’t already know and might want to go that route.

Book Descriptions Below:

WHINE WITH CHEESE

Maxine “Max” Novaline just had her heart ripped out by her ex-boyfriend, Bart Moore. Determined to bounce back, she’s ready to do some serious damage control on her shattered self-esteem thanks to that narcissistic meathead.

Max heads to Napa Valley’s Angel of the Vine Winery, maker of her favorite Moscato, to scout out tours for work and–let’s be honest–catch a glimpse of the owner’s drool-worthy son, Chase L’Angevin, as seen on YouTube.

Nothing says movin’ on like some sweet wine and eye candy. Right?

Chase, who likes the pin-up girl type, starts to pour on the charm the moment he meets this demure beauty. She even blushes over every compliment he gives her like she’s been deprived of them.

Lavish the bubbly blonde with all the attention she deserves? Of course.

When their first date rolls into a long, romantic weekend, their chemistry ignites faster than a matchstick in hell.

But, when Max’s fears of rushing into another relationship start to haunt her, and Chase becomes all too eager to keep trying to sweep her off her feet, they both find themselves tumbling down a rabbit hole of an adventure in pursuit of what true love is all about.

WHINE WITH CHEESE is about a young woman discovering her full potential while falling in love one sweet wine tasting at a time.

“Wanted to read this book just from the title alone and the author did not let me down. But rose and soared with this book!” (Wine and Late Night Mommy Reads Blog, Net Galley review)

“I love this book! I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting. I would recommend to my friends.” (Renee, blogger, Net Galley review)

***This novel is a classy, passionate, sexy, funny, feel good CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE – ROMANTIC COMEDY full of twists and turns that will have you smiling from start to finish. Grab a bottle of Moscato, kick up your feet, and enjoy the ride.*** (Heat Level: Mildly Steamy)

Wishing all of you a warm-weathered week full of lots of little things to celebrate!

Why, yes. Yes, I did.

Vineyard Pleasures Series

Why, yes. Yes, I did.

I updated the covers of my standalone romantic comedy novels in my Vineyard Pleasures Series.

While my previous covers flaunting my heroines were befitting, ladies do like to gander at some delicious eye candy, so I opted to do some people-pleasing with my updates. And let’s face it … those crystal glasses of succulent wine that even I can’t stop oogling over are making my mouth water. Admit it. You were gawking at them, too.

Oh, and one more nom … prewriting for Wine Not? Vineyard Pleasures Series #3 is plotting along nicely, and the cover is done. And, yes, it’s also yummy, I promise.

Cover Reveal: Love the Wine You’re With (Vineyard Pleasures Series, #2) by Brooke E. Wayne and other goodies …

Love the Wine You’re With (Vineyard Pleasures, #2) is … almost … done! It’s in the final stages of editing, and I’m hoping to launch it November 1st. *Fist pump*

So, without further ado, here’s the cover:LTWYW-New-Cover-RED-BLUE-eBook-2-10

I spent this past summer with the AC on full-blast, combating 110 degree weather in sunny California while penning Love the Wine You’re With (Vineyard Pleasures, #2)–the standalone continuation centered around Blanca Grazia and Julien L’Angevin from Whine with Cheese (Vineyard Pleasures, #1).

Picking up where Max and Chase had left off, we land right smack dab at the Halloween Party … and then scoot on into the Christmas Season. While my RomCom is debuting in time for the holidays, crammed full of all kinds of holly-jolly good times, the plot does play fair to the other seasons, as well, for a holiday read. In other words, enjoy it any time of the year, but it’ll be available this November on all major eBook retailers and in paperback, too.

Whine with Cheese (Vineyard Pleasures, #1) Nuts and Bolts:

Whine with Cheese is wrapping up its run on Net Galley on October 28th, so, if you’re a book blogger and would like to read and review the novel, you still have about a week left to receive a free copy. My RomCom is by request only through my PR queen, Giselle, who will hook you up with a copy of the novel–just let her know directly through Net Galley.
