The Italian's Christmas Child

The Italian's Christmas Child by Lynne Graham Italian tycoon Vito Zaffari is waiting out the festive season while a family scandal fades from the press. So he's come to his friend's snow covered English country cottage, determined to shut out the world. Until a beautiful bombshell dressed as Santa literally crashes into his Christmas! Innocent Holly Cleaver sneaks under Vito's defences - he wants her like no other before and decides he must have her. When Vito finds her gone the next day, he's sure she'll be easy to forget...until he discovers that their one night of passion has a shocking Christmas consequence! Snowbound with his Innocent Temptation by Cathy Williams When heartbroken Becky Shaw retreats to the Cotswolds for Christmas, she expects to be warming herself in front of a fire, not in the arms of gorgeous Italian billionaire Theo Rushing. As a snowstorm rages outside, indoors the temperature starts to rise...It was meant to be a holiday fling, until Theo reveals he needs a fake fiancee, and sweeps Becky away to Italy and his luxurious world. To protect her heart she agreed to a 'relationship' in name only, but as the chemistry between them crackles, how long before Theo and Becky pass the point of no return?


The Wine Savant

RRP $22.95

Today’s dynamic wine culture calls for a different kind of wine book. The Wine Savant is just that: punchy, polemical, and brimming with insights to educate and entertain beginning wine drinkers and seasoned oenophiles alike.

Never has the wine world had so much to offer, and never have smart decisions about value, quality, grape, and season been so difficult to make. In The Wine Savant, Michael Steinberger tramps through the world of contemporary wine—from three-buck Chuck and bucket-list Bordeaux to bottle speculators and biodynamic wineries—to give the inside scoop on the key concerns facing the new generation of wine lovers:

  • Why is California suddenly cool again?
  • What’s really the difference between a 95-point wine and a 94-point wine?
  • Why is Burgundy ascendant and Bordeaux suddenly so passé?
  • What’s a biodynamic wine, what’s a natural wine, and should you care?
  • Do food and wine pairings still matter?
Featuring expert buying guides—including the New Kings of California and the World’s Great $25-and-Under Bottles—and tips on tough-to-pair cuisines like Indian and Japanese, The Wine Savant is the perfect guide to today’s often-bewildering realm of choice: ferociously opinionated and committed body and soul to enjoying every glass.
