Michael Santino and Shae Hayes are coming in HOT

MICHAEL SANTINO is getting his happily-ever-after August 7th!


Keep scrolling for today's LOVE IS A WILDFIRE SNEAK PEEK!

My small-town contemporary romance series Love in the Vineyards, is set close to my home about an hour’s drive north of San Francisco in the Napa Valley area.

The series centers around six loyal, protective (and gorgeous), Santino brothers of Napa Valley and three women who live in a nearby villa in Sonoma.

Although each book is a standalone read, this is one, large saga where families and close friends are connected and reappear throughout the series.

Love is a Wildfire: (Love in the Vineyards Book #4)


They donned their masks, and together made their way past the courtyard and up through the vineyards.

Line after line of thick flames ran across the ridge, making it hard to gauge the location of the main fire.

It didn’t matter. They were all lethal. The fires closest to them were setting off new, smaller blazes while he and Leo kept trudging up to get beyond the vines.

When they reached the bottom of the ravine, Michael scouted for a path—any small break in the flames. He saw one up ahead and pointed it out, about ten yards up the mountain, to the right.

“Let’s lock arms,” he shouted.

Meeting his eyes, Leo nodded, confirming he saw the clearing too.

Locking arms, they tramped up over the embers, avoiding mini blazes every five or ten steps.

Pushing the mask off his face, Leo yelled over the crackling roar, “Dad! Nico! Call out, we’re here!”

“Lucaaaa! Jamieee!” Michael pulled his mask under his chin. Gagging through the smoke, he cupped his hands over his mouth, bellowing into the abyss, “Luca! Jamie!”

I took this "fire on the ridge" backround photo.

When they reached the clearing, they were immediately slammed by blast of smoke that knocked them down.

Struggling to get to his feet, Michael shook his head and blinked to get the ash and debris out of his eyes.

Blinded in the midst of igniting branches snapping and falling around them and the low hum of the roiling fire, he rubbed his eyes, using his coat sleeve and then his hands, smearing and embedding the muck deeper into his corneas.

Putting his mask back on, Michael could barely see through his watering eyes and guck-covered mask.

The fire gave a guttural growl that drowned out Leo’s voice, but Michael saw his mouth moving. Twisting to avoid the heavy smoke, and scowling, he hollered, “Nico! Dad!”

“Luca! Jamie!” Would Michael lose all of them tonight? He didn’t have the bandwidth to even remotely consider the possibility. “Nico! Dad!” He knew they probably couldn’t hear him over the roar, but gave it his all.

Leo and Michael thrashed their way to the end of the break, where a wall of flames confronted them. Leo brought his arm up and around, motioning over the flames. He shifted closer Michael’s ear. “We have to go through. No choice,” he yelled, barely audible over the bellowing fire and crash of falling trees and branches.

So much fuel left to burn. Michael regretted not leveling every tree and shrub and clearing the whole mountain when he had the chance. Who needed nature if it was only going to come sneaking back around one autumn to kill you?

Michael nodded to Leo, whose grimy, bloodshot expression was steely with determination. They couldn’t abandon their brothers and father up there. Leo stared back at him with a look that hit him hard—a cross between we have to do this and if we don’t make it, goodbye.
