What happens when a corporate spy clashes with a woman he can’t help but fall for? In Mary Billiter’s witty novel of deception and heat, a red-hot suit and a beautiful academic are linked by a vineyard and the mystery surrounding its origins.

Chloe Dorsey places her belongings in storage, puts Southern California in her rearview mirror, and heads to her sister’s home in Northern California for a fresh start. As one of the newly hired wine educators at the Napa Valley Point Resort and Winery, Chloe’s knowledge of wine is as limited as her income.

Anthony “Tony” Mahoney has one objective—to locate the Mother Vine, the source of the rare and award-winning wine that can only be found at the Napa Valley Point Resort and Winery. His talent for stealing secrets is tested when he makes an unlikely alliance with the one woman who could destroy all his plans.

Can Chloe stop the wine thief, or will she have her heart crushed in the process?

Review: Arresting Mason (Arresting Onyx Book 1)

TITLE: Arresting Mason

AUTHOR: Amber Daulton

Print Length: 219 pages
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press, Inc (April 30, 2018)
Publication Date: April 30, 2018

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Source: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.


That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother–his parole officer–catches them together and doesn’t approve.

Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.

When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
Warning – one seriously hot bad boy hero with a dirty mouth; one feisty heroine with a heart of gold; lots of hot sex, danger, and intrigue!
No cheating and no cliffhanger! HEA guaranteed


Mason Harding was on his way to see his parole officer, a royal pain in his behind when’re beautiful Mia nearly hit him with her car.  Mia was filled with regret from almost hitting the handsome stranger, but she was smitten with him immediately.  After exchanging a few pleasantries the two decided to meet again under better circumstances.

While getting reamed out by the parole officer Mason couldn’t understand what possessed him to make a date with Mia.  She seemed like a good girl and him being an Ex-Con probably wouldn’t mix.

Mason was getting close to Mia and explained that he was out of the gang, but just as fast as he said it his last came back to haunt him.  Could Mason keep out and save Mia at the same time?  Only time would tell.

Talk about a steamy romantic suspense.  I read this book in two sittings I did not want to put it down.  Mia is a strong woman and Mason while being a tough guy had a good heart.  The combination of the characters makes for a great read.  Like I said its steamy and full of suspense.  I truly enjoyed the read.  Looks like this is book one.  I am thrilled to hear we got more from this story.  A recommended read.

Gabriella shrugged as she picked up her carpetbag and headed off toward the hotel, hoping they had a vacancy. She never had to arrange for her own place to stay before. In Monaco, everything had just been done for her, arranged for her. It just was and something she didn’t have to think about. She sighed as she looked up at the hotel. It wasn’t what she was used to, but it was as good a place as any to start. Surely, Mr. Carlo wouldn’t find her there.
Suddenly, two men grabbed her arms, one on each side, causing her to drop her bag.
“What’s the meaning of this?” Gabriella gasped. When she looked up, two of the three scruffy men from the train had her. The man with the long beard gave her a toothless smile. “Let go of me!”
She heard a click, and something round and hard was pushed against her back. “If you know what’s good for you, miss, you’ll keep it down. Don’t attract any attention, or I’ll be forced to shoot you right here.”
Gabriella turned to look in his eyes. “Then go ahead and shoot! I’d rather be dead than go with the likes of you!”
He grabbed a handful of her dark brown hair and jerked her head back. “Listen, bitch! I’m warning you!”
“Get off me!” she demanded, but the younger man on her right shoved his dirty hand over her mouth and pulled her quickly down an alley. “Help! Let go of me, you brute!” she mumbled around his hand.
“Shut up!” the man with the gold tooth, who had been standing behind her, growled through gritted teeth. The young man threw her over his shoulder and carried her toward a wagon where another scruffy-looking man with red hair and a beard waited.
“It’s about time you got here.” The man looked at Gabriella, kicking and screaming, and leered. “Hey! What do we have here?”
“Payday,” the younger man replied, trying to keep Gabriella on his shoulder.
“Help, someone!” Gabriella shouted as she beat on the man’s back.
When she looked up, the man with long hair who had been waiting for Kenzie was standing at the end of the alley on the street.
“Help me! Please!”
“Hold it right there,” the man who had come to get Kenzie ordered as he pushed his coat aside, revealing two sidearms, one on each side, tied down to his leg. “Let her go!”
The man with the scruffy beard drew his pistol and fired, but the man with the long hair was quicker, and shot him right between the eyes, which went glassy. He fell against the wagon and then onto the ground.
The younger man threw Gabriella into the back of the covered wagon, drew his gun, and fired at the man. “Go, go!” he shouted at the driver and then climbed in, too.
