About the Wine Country Romance Series:
The Wine Country Romances are Contemporary New Adult Romances. Each story stands on its own – no cliffhangers here! These books are linked by theme only. Each one is set in a different wine country location, and wine and good food are laced throughout the stories in a purposeful way.
I spent several years selling wine for a French import company (and many more years drinking wine and reading about it!) I love everything about the history and evolution of wine and the culture that surrounds it, and that love is what inspired this series of books.
If you are a wine lover and a reader who appreciates romance, these books are for you. You might learn something about the process of making a particular varietal, pick up a tidbit about wine history or lore that you didn’t know, OR you might just find a great romance waiting to be read.
Either way, I hope you will enjoy the Wine Country Romance Series! Cheers!
— Delancey Stewart
Isabella DaSilva hurtles toward California’s wine country in an effort to outrun her past, hoping to lose herself among the vines and make her mark as an intern at a pioneering winery with an impressive reputation.
Jonathan Sauvage is at the helm of the struggling winery — battling demons of his own and unprepared for the arrival of a fiery and opinionated apprentice.
Before long, neither one is sure if they are working together or against each other, but one thing is certain: falling in love just might unravel their chances at finding the futures they thought they wanted.
This book is the first in the Wine Country Romance series.

Fynn, Author of the upcoming new adult novel The Long Game
Love, loss, and a smoky red…
When Audrey Montgomery’s carefully planned life collides with the self-destructive path Tyson Dawes is on, neither of them can predict what will happen next.
Audrey is a diligent and self-reliant culinary student at Portland’s prestigious Cordon Bleu. She has a clear picture of her future in mind, and it allows little room for the steely-eyed and tormented young man she bumps into by chance while wine tasting with friends.
Tyson Dawes had a perfect childhood, raised among the vines in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. But even the most idyllic of upbringings couldn’t have prepared him for what he would face as a Marine. He returns to his childhood home angry and haunted by the storms of what he has faced and by those he has lost.
Do opposites truly attract? Can the lure of Audrey’s apparent clarity and innocence offer Tyson hope in the face of his emptiness?
