Tangled Vines

by Nicole Flockton

For such a short sweet read, this story had a plot and wonderful characters. The trend in some short stories is to go from the initial character meeting, hop them into bed, to the happily ever after at the end, with nothing in the middle, skipping what I would call some of the essential parts. There is not much or very little for character development, no full understanding of emotions and usually leaves me feeling like I’ve been duped out of part of the book. Ms. Flockton managed to stuff everything a story needs into a very nice small package.


While Ms. Flockton didn’t go into great detail about the lives of both characters and their pasts, and some readers might feel cheated about that, she did give wonderful details about who they are now and who they become. Kyle makes you want to both hug him for the pain and loss he went through and then punch him for being such an ass about it now. I love Jordan for her strength and stubbornness in dealing with both Kyle and her own past. These two light up a room with their heat right from the beginning and when they finally give into it, well I’m surprised they didn’t set the house on fire. 😉
This is a quick, sexy read that shouldn’t be missed. So if you need a quick romance fix that’s filled with sexiness, attitude and hope for the future, this is the one for you!

This charming Australian rural romance will remind you of the true meaning of the holiday spirit and the power of love.

Kyle Davis doesn’t do Christmas since he lost his whole family in the Boxing Day tsunami last decade. His idea of celebrating is going to his Margaret River property and cuddling up with his liquor cabinet. So finding Jordan Hastings in his shower is unacceptable—no matter how his body responds to her, a relationship is not on his holiday wish list.

After being betrayed by the man she thought loved her, winemaker Jordan has taken over her father’s caretaker position—and a little bit more— at the rural vineyard. She’s trying to get her career on track by bringing the neglected grapes on the property back to life. Handsome Kyle is hard to resist, especially after they grow closer and she learns of his tragic past. But falling for a man who controls her employment is not on the table.

Yet the more time they spend together, the more it appears that taking another risk on living and loving could be the best Christmas gift after all.
