A Sip of You
~ Synopsis ~
A young food photographer's appetites are further explored as her love affair with a handsome billionaire gourmand deepens. Book 2 in the The Epicurean series.
The undeniable chemistry between food photographer Catherine Kelley and billionaire gourmand William Lambourne has become an unquenchable thirst…
Catherine’s career in Chicago is taking off and the handsome stormy-eyed stranger who recently rocked her world has become -- dare she say it? -- her boyfriend. Dating a billionaire who’s a god in the bedroom and a virtuoso in the kitchen definitely has its perks. But it’s the unguarded, tender moments with William that stir Cat’s heart and reawaken her appetite for love. A weekend trip to William’s vineyard so he can face a painful loss puts their new relationship to the test. Complex and layered, William is at once passionate and sweet, but also prickly and guarded. He’s promised openness, but it becomes immediately clear that Cat’s version of honesty and his are as different as chardonnay and pinot noir. It’s hard to fault William for his secretive ways when Cat knows she’s holding back, too. As the attraction between them gets even hotter, Catherine and William must share all of their secrets before their relationship can truly begin. And little does Cat know how dangerous confronting their pasts will be.

~ Excerpt ~
I wonder what you’re doing with me.”
He raised a brow as he slid
out a drawer, produced a corkscrew, and began to open the bottle of wine. “Why
would you say that? It’s me who doesn’t deserve you. You’re talented, smart,
beautiful, and great in bed. How lucky am I?”
Well, when he put it that way…
My cheeks flushed, but I made myself accept the compliment. “Thank you. I just
meant that I’m such a mess, and you’re so organized.” I watched as he
effortlessly pulled out the cork and then grabbed two wine glasses from an
upper cabinet. He poured, filling each with a deep pink liquid that I
“Is that the same rosé we
drank at Casa di Rosabela?” I asked. The rosé that he was so proud of, the rosé
which had inspired my safe word. I could feel my blush deepen across my cheeks.
William smiled broadly as
he handed me a glass. “Very observant. It is. See, I’ll make a wine connoisseur
out of you yet, Catherine. Cheers.” We touched glasses. I sipped the wine,
dribbling a bit on my bottom lip. I lifted my hand to catch it before it ran onto
my chin, but he grabbed my hand and shook his head. His eyes were dark and
intense. My breath hitched.
“Messy can be sexy,” he
said, touching his finger to my mouth. “Very sexy.” He dipped his head and
licked the drop of wine from my bottom lip. At the taste of him mixed with the
bright yet delicate flavors of the rosé, my thoughts flashed back to Napa, to
our night with the honey and handcuffs and his scorching hot kisses between my
legs. My arms came up and I wrapped them around his neck, pulling his mouth to
mine for a deeper kiss. He didn’t resist, and this time I pushed him back,
pinning him to the counter and pressing against him.
“I thought…you wanted to
talk,” he said, his voice husky and breathless with need. I loved that I could
do this to him, that I could make him want me so much.
“Talking can wait,” I
muttered. “I’ve missed you too much.” …
