(Four Irish Brothers Winery #1)

Paperback & ebook, 185 Pages
October 29th 2018 by Tule Publishing
Winemaker and single father Conor Flaherty is determined to make this Christmas holiday special for his daughter even though his family’s winery, Four Irish Brothers, is facing some challenges.
High-octane Chicago attorney Samantha Hayes is looking forward to some delicious food, fine wine, small town charm, and a break from her hectic big city life when she agrees to do a favor for her boss and help his younger brother with a lawsuit that’s been slapped on his family’s historic winery in River’s Edge. She’s not expecting that her sexy new client will have a smile that will melt her heart and remind her that there’s more to life than work.
Sam falls hard for Conor, his daughter and the small, friendly town, but can she trust her instincts and risk her heart? Sam hasn’t seen a lot of happy-ever-afters in her life, but Conor and the magic of Christmas make her want to believe.
The winery was dim and vast with a high beamed ceiling and a fieldstone fireplace that took up one entire end of the room. A round dark wood tasting bar stood in the middle, surrounded by several high-top tables and stools. One corner was the store with shelves of wine-themed tchotchkes of all kinds, while the back wall was nothing but racks and racks of bottles. A light shone from an office just to the right of the front door and plastic totes were piled haphazardly in front of an open closet nearby.
Sam cleared her throat. “Mr. Flaherty?” Her voice echoed slightly in the immense space.
She marched over to the office, her heels clicking loudly on the hardwood floor. Nobody was there, although several photo albums and scrapbooks lay open on a rather cluttered desk. She glanced at her watch and then at a large wooden clock above the mantel. Nine on the dot. Obviously someone was here.
The door was unlocked; lights were on in the office. “Mr. Flaherty?”
“Oh, baby!” The deep voice came from somewhere below and she turned with a start, looking for the source.
“Excuse me?” She scanned the room, catching sight of a pair of double doors leading to a stairwell in the corner nearest to the office. Following sounds that could have been either ecstasy or pain, she descended the steps with trepidation.
“Oh, man.” The voice became a moan.
“Um . . . Mr. Flaherty?” Sam reached the bottom of the stairs, a bit concerned at what she might encounter.
