It’s all fun and games until someone falls in love.
Maya Tessier needs a fresh start after her last boyfriend dragged her deep into an organized crime ring, putting her life in danger. After inheriting a cottage and acreage in France from her great-grandmother, she hopes to escape her turbulent past to concentrate on her art. Unfortunately, her inheritance is within the estate of a privacy-obsessed billionaire. And he wants it all back.
Jacques de Launay has led a life of rigid control, working hard to repair the family’s fortunes after his playboy father nearly destroyed them. His one attempt at happiness ended in tragedy when his pregnant wife was killed in a car crash. He’d rather be the last in the illustrious de Launay family line than open himself up to that kind of heartache again. Then Maya Tessier arrives on his doorstep and he discovers it’s not only the ancestral land he wants to reclaim.
But if he lets her stay, more than his heart may be at risk.

I absolutely devoured this book. From the moment I started The Vinter and The Vixen- I couldn't put it down! It has everything you want in a book! Love, pain, romance, heartache and plenty of attraction and sexual tension. Plus add in sass from the leading lady... and that makes it hysterical! I loved Maya. She's incredible and I loved reading about her. She's fierce, bold and speaks her mind. She has an iffy past and hopes she can get past it... and not hurt anyone else in the process. Her heart is pure as her art.. and I loved her personality so much! Jacques- man I loved this guy. He has much sadness on his shoulders and only works... but when Grandpa says a new girl is here and on their land... he won’t have it. But what happens when it's none other than sexy Maya? You will fall for this sexy, brooding, romantic man! He'll be your new book boyfriend for sure! They are a hoot! Seriously.. Laugh out loud moments between these two sensational characters. This book is filled with amazing sassy comments. You will fall in love with these characters, Daniel, Grandpa, the past, the present, love, friendships, everything! This is the first book I've read by this author and it won't be my last!! If you are looking for a unique, well written, sexy, phenomenal book... you need to grab The Vinter and The Vixen. You won't be disappointed you did. 5 Grace and Serenity Stars!
