MM Good Book Review
If you’ve visited the blog or my FB page anytime recently, you know that my next release is Return of the Chauffeur’s Son, which releases June 2nd (a week from when i’m writing this). You may also know that this book is an homage to an old romantic movie and might have guessed which film from the book title.Confirmed! The old movie is Sabrina, a charming romance from the 1950s i think that you might have seen on TV. (They’ve remade the movie but the new one isn’t nearly as good as the original. Try to find it.) The original stars were Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and the amazing Audrey Hepburn. When i was young, people used to tell me that i looked like Audrey and that inspired me to seek out her films. I love bunches of them — Roman Holiday, Funny Face and especially Sabrina. In this original, Humphrey Bogart was too old to be the romantic lead, but Audrey is so engaging and amazing that i don’t think anyone cared.
A lot about the film is old and outdated today and i had a great time taking the tropes of the film and i hope the effervescent mood and translating it into a contemporary romance that just happens to be a triangle between three men. I reset the story in Napa Valley, California and filled it with the wine and food of that region, a detail i think captures some of the sensory quality of the movie.
If you plan to read the book, i hope you’ll pre-order it now. Here is the link to Amazon. And you can find it t all other retailers. To read an excerpt, Click HERE. I hope you enjoy it as much as i loved writing it. Here’s to Audrey!
Hi — I’m delighted to tell you that my novel, Return of the Chauffeur’s Son is now available for pre-order at Amazon and will be at other resellers soon. This champagne cocktail of a book is an homage to a famous romance film called Sabrina. Remember? Audrey at her finest? My version is quite different in details, but has some of the same basic tropes. Here’s the link. The book releases June 2.
Luca McGrath may be returning to Napa Valley, California as a promising chef with dreams of starting his own restaurant and winery, but his heart still lives with bad-boy billionaire’s son, James Armstrong. Luca spent his childhood playing games with the golden boy of California society, so blinded by James he barely noticed the dark, quiet lure of his conservative older brother, Dylan Armstrong.
But now, Luca’s home and his own powers of attraction are enough to make James question his dedicated heterosexuality and his promised marriage to a wealthy and powerful businesswoman. The obvious attraction between Luca and James spurs Dylan into action—but he’s fighting a huge secret. While Luca dreamed of James, Dylan dreamed of Luca. When Luca gets caught in the struggle between the brothers and gets accused of culinary espionage he’s ready to chuck the fairy tale—unable to even imagine Dylan’s power to make his dreams come true.
I think you’re going to enjoy this fun ride through the wine country with a sassy chef and two battling billionaires. Why not pre-order now so you don’t forget. The Amazon price is now $5.38, so not bad!
Here’s a reminder that Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns releases on the 22nd — just a few days. Here are the links and an excerpt — Click Here.
