Romance in the
midst of vineyards and wine country.
Moonlight and Roses is a short tender romance that pits adversaries
together and against each other. The scenery and language of
viniculture and viticulture gives this romance a realistic and
informative setting that complements the characters.
Jaye Monroe's entire life has been turned inside out when her father
dies and his will is read. Alongside her father, Jaye has built the
Medallion wine brand with her heart and soul. Her father's will turns
the winery and vineyards over to her step-mother and gives Jaye her
step-mother's house with all the antiques and items she despises.
Jaye's step-mother makes matters worse by selling the vineyards and
company to an outsider, Zack Holland. Zack, heir to a renowned
prize-winning California winery, wants to strike out on his own and
forget the pain of his family and past. When he encounters Jaye, a
strong woman and a bit of a tomboy, he is dazzles by her looks,
intelligence and spirit. Can the two of them work together for the good
of Medallion when their ultimate business plans conflict so? When their
physical attraction can no longer be denied, will they be forced to
choose between love and business?
In Moonlight and Roses, Jackie Braun creates emotional depth at the
same time that the conflicting business interests of the hero and
heroine create a fun, suspenseful romantic conflict. Readers will
appreciate the strong intelligent Jaye as a heroine whose spirit shines
in all she does. Zack, a dreamer and a realist, is a perfect match for
Jaye as he values what is most dear to her but also adds his own vision
to the business. The author's meticulous research on wine varieties and
viticulture grounds this romance with an interesting backdrop for wine
enthusiasts and neophytes alike. Jaye and Zack's growing attraction
brings them together and creates a more expansive vision, not only of
each other, but also of the business. The initial emotional devastation
of the will's reading finds the perfect ending as Jackie Braun combines
business and romance in a narrative with an expansive view that
includes a tribute to both family and independence. The narrative style
flows smoothly while providing delightful surprises. Jackie Braun's
Moonlight and Roses is a delightful romance on all levels from
emotional content to stylistic form.
