Andrew Stafford’s five relaxing days on a much-needed holiday in wine country turns even more delicious when he arrives at the hotel and meets the woman of his dreams. She’s everything he’s ever wanted, but there’s a problem. She’s carrying a wedding dress—hers—making her totally off-limits.
Tori Worthing used to feel like the luckiest woman alive. Now, jilted by her fiancé and heartbroken, she finds comfort and pleasure in the arms of a stranger, a place she never thought she’d be. It’s a rebound affair—nothing more—and it’ll end when the week is over.
But when that time comes, Andrew is reluctant to let go—which he knows is crazy. But no one ever said love was sane.

About the Author
An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. And she did. Although the first one was pretty awful.
But once she discovered it was okay to leave the bedroom door open in her romance novels, she decided to leave everything open. Buttons, zips, pants, number of lovers… Which is why her books are all steamy erotic romances.
Jess’s first published story, Photo Opportunity, was originally contracted in 2005. Since then, she’s completed over 30 books, and is finally doing the work she loves most— writing romance.
While Jess lived most of her life in South Africa, the last twelve years have been spent in Australia. From the fast-paced Sydney lifestyle to the laid-back islands and beaches, there’s always another gorgeous Aussie setting for a contemporary romance.

## Wow. This book was so much fun to read. I loved, loved the hero Andrew. Man, he was hot with a capital H. *sigh*. The hero and heroine had plenty of sizzling chemistry and the sex was....scorching. Albeit a tad shorter than the average book (apprx 135 pages), it felt perfectly developed and didn't lack a thing. Nice job Ms. Dee. Will read again.
I’m in a state of total bliss after reading Red Red Wine, and I cannot begin tell you enough how much I enjoyed this story from the very talented Jess Dee. Now I must admit to you guys that the whole jilted bride thing has never been my favorite kind of trope to read in my romances, but I had no doubt that Jess could sway me. She has an amazing ability to create characters you just can’t help but fall in love with, and she is able to capture such deep emotions between her characters for how short her stories are. To put it really quite simply, the woman’s talent amazes me. "Fall as hard as you need to, I'll catch you." So, now I need to get back to the subject at hand with Red Red Wine. Andrew Stafford is working himself into an early grave, and his business partner forces him to take a much-needed holiday. Upon his arrival, he is met with the drop-dead gorgeous Tori Worthing. The only drawback is that she is getting married that weekend so she is entirely off limits. When Tori finds out her fiancé plans to leave her at the altar she is absolutely devastated, but Andrew comes to her rescue and proves to her that her life isn’t totally crashing down around her despite how she feels right now. "It was as essential as breathing. Tori was his oxygen and his lifeline. When she was around, he breathed. More than that, he lived. And right now, he'd never felt more alive. Wow, did these two have instant chemistry. I loved the banter between them, and they were two characters that were far too easy to love. Andrew is commendable in his noble efforts to help Tori, but the passion these two share is something that is truly rare indeed and entirely undeniable. Not to give anything away, but a highlight for me was how much I loved that Jess gave Tori time to adjust to her new life after their weekend. Andrew was more romantic than I thought he was going to be at first, so I was pleasantly surprised by him. Overall, I just really loved that these two were brought together by a wonderful twist of fate, and I highly suggest you give this one a read. I did have to do a sneak peek on Jess's website just to be sure that Declan's book was coming after this, because I definitely think he is worthy of having his own book. I'm very eagerly awaiting what Jess has in store for him. :) *I received a review copy from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review*
One of my biggest problems with Jess Dee has been she delivers on the seduction, but lacks with the substance. She came back swinging and proved me wrong with Red Red Wine. Her signature sex appeal was evident but this time she brought a deeper meaning to the tale. Like a fine wine that is slowly aged for a more flavorful delivery, Ms. Dee tackled the hidden layers of Tori and Andrew. That breathing room made for a temptingly sensitive romance that just got better with time.
