Series: Love & Wine #1
Release Date: October 10, 2019
At least that’s how Lauren Somerville feels when Jack and the cookies walk back into her life fourteen years later.
As much as Lauren isn’t thrilled to see him, Jack is ready to prove that Tim Tams aren’t the only good thing to come from the Land Down Under.
He may have been an arrogant kid when they met, but time has been good to him, because now he has the looks to back it up.
But Lauren has the upper hand. As the owner of the world famous Somerville Winery & Vineyard, he works for her now.
And you know what they say about sour grapes…
Writing The Rockport Beach Novels has been so much fun, even if Book 2 needed a shared vacation, a stolen bottle of champagne and far too much vodka and POG to get it back on track! Both halves of Claire Raye are married and both of her husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in her books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males she loves to write about.
While Claire Raye isn’t sure she’ll ever reveal who she really is – there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier – she’s definitely going to keep on writing. Plans are already underway for the next series, which is sure to feature plenty of sass, steam and humor. And of course, a happily-ever-after!
