Sophia Giambelli has never worried about competition. For three generations, the Giambelli wines have been renowned for their quality-- from Napa Valley to Italy, and throughout the world. The pride of the Giambelli family and a top PR executive, Sophia loves her job-- and excels at it. But things are about to change at Villa Giambelli. Tereza, the matriarch, has announced a merger with the MacMillan family's winery-- and Sophia will be assuming a new role. As a savvy businesswoman, she knows she must be prepared for anything . . . but she isn't prepared for Tyler MacMillan. They've been ordered to work together very closely, to facilitate the merger. Sophia must teach Ty the finer points of marketing-- and Ty, in turn, shows her how to get down and dirty, to use the sun, rain, and earth to coax the sweetest grapes from the vineyard. As they toil together, both in and out of the fields, Sophia is torn between a powerful attraction and a professional rivalry. At the end of the season, the course of the company's future-- and the legacy of the villa-- may take an entirely new direction. And when acts of sabotage threaten both the family business and the family itself, Sophia's quest will be not only for dominance, but also for survival.

4.0 The Villa by Nora Roberts
Another typical NR novel, if you ask me, only this time I much preferred the secondary romance between Pilar and David to the primary romance between H/h. For starters, because I didn’t particularly like the heroine; she didn’t want to end up like her father, didn’t want people to see her as they di...

I alternated between the paperback and the Audio CD (just because). It was fine, classic Nora Roberts, I was a little let down by the abrupt sort-of-out-of-nowhere ending, which knocked it down a little.
