Oh, oh, ohhh, what a feeling!
Allie Ledbetter is outstanding in her field. Well, sort of. After all, she stands in a lot of fields as she releases her peregrine falcon to help fend off huge flocks of starlings from decimating grape yields at vineyards that hire her. And she and her falcon just landed a dream job: working at a vineyard in Tuscany keeping birds from having a feast with the grapes.
Francesco Romeo is sick to death of things that eat his crop. As the brother tasked with eradicating these pesky marauders at the top producer of premier wines in the Chianti region of Tuscany, Francesco is enraged when he learns the vineyard next door has hired a falconer to scare away swarming flocks of starlings, and now the birds are instead happily feasting on the Romeo family’s predator-free grapes, and Francesco has to go toe-to-toe with the feisty falconer, who just happens to be a woman he’s already gone mouth-to-mouth with.
About the Author
Thank you so much for reading my books! I hope you'll find some that keep you from doing the dishes, or vacuuming, or maybe even cause you to stay up later than you'd planned to (although I covet my sleep, so I'd feel guilty if I was to blame for that too often!).
I'm the author of SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER, winner of Romantic Times/Dorchester Publishing's American Title III contest, bestseller SLIM TO NONE, the IT'S REIGNING MEN contemporary romance series, including SOMETHING IN THE HEIR, HEIR TODAY GONE TOMORROW, BAD TO THE THRONE, LOVE IS IN THE HEIR and SHAME OF THRONES (book 6, THRONE FOR A LOOP, comes out in March); ANYWHERE BUT HERE; WHERE THE HEART IS; the memoir BITE ME: A PARROT, A FAMILY AND A WHOLE LOT OF FLESH WOUNDS; the essay collection NAKED MAN ON MAIN STREET; two contemporary romances as Erin Delany: ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE, & COMPROMISING POSITIONS. I have a funny dog story in I'M NOT THE BIGGEST BITCH IN THIS RELATIONSHIP. And I've got many more novels in the works!
I've had pieces appear in Ladies Home Journal, the Washington Post, Marie-Claire.com, and on NPR's Day to Day. I honed my fiction writing skills while working as a publicist for a US Senator. Other jobs I've held have included: an orthodontic assistant (learning quite readily that I wasn't cut out for a career in polyester), a waitress (probably my highest-paying job), a TV reporter, a pre-obituary writer, and a photographer (once being Prince Charles' photographer in Washington!). Oh I'm also the volunteer coordinator for the Virginia Film Festival, which is a great one!
I live in Virginia with my husband and a small menagerie; we have three grown children, one of whom lives in Australia and I dream of visiting her there. I love all things Italian, regularly fantasize about traveling to exotic locales, and feel a little bit guilty for rarely attempting to clean the house.

This is a very sexy and fun romance that I just loved. Allie is in Italy with her falcon to try to prevent the starling population from eating the grapes on the vineyard employing her. While there, she meets Francesco and begins a very sexy relationship with him. Then, when the starling's descends on Francesco's vineyard, he is livid and the sparks really begin to fly. If you enjoy spicy contemporary romance with a side of very hot Italian man, then you will love this book. While it is part of a series, this is a stand alone novel. The author is on my must read authors' list.
