Franco Chatsfield is sent to Australia to secure a partnership between the Chatsfield hotels and Purman Wines. When he arrives at the vineyard he meets Holly Purman, the woman in charge, along with her elderly but spirited grandfather Pop. Holly is reluctant to make a deal with a Chatsfield since the Chatsfield family have been getting a lot of negative attention recently in the press. Franco tries to gain their trust by staying for six weeks to help prune the vines.

This was an enjoyable book.

Franco Chatsfield must secure a deal but for Holly her family's vineyard is the most important thing in her life and she won't risk it by making business with a notorious Chatsfield. But when they end up working together Holly discovers the man behind the mask and the sad secret he is carrying.

I enjoyed this book. The story was slow sometimes and heroine was too snarky and petulant at first but the second half of the book won me over. Franco was a wonderful romantic hero, the love scenes were s

Hurt sometimes just refuses to go away. You can through yourself into your work, you can get drunk and laugh and try to forget, you can do just about anything but the hurt will always be there. Sneaking up on you in the dead of night or hitting you with the first rays of sunlight.

In this read, the fifth book in the new Mills and Boon series, we meet Holly Purman and Franco Chatsfield.
Holly has devoted her life to her family's vineyard and there is no way and no how she is going to risk losing

Franco Chatsfield and Holly Purman's story. Franco goes to the vineyard thinking that he can show up and flash a smile then get what he wants.....playing by his families rules and securing the vineyard to supply the Chatsfield Hotel's wine, and spirits. Holly is a no holds barred kind of woman. She doesn't give in to his charms. Reluctantly she gives in to her Grandfather that Franco works the fields, since they are short on help, in exchange that she changes her mind at the end of 6 weeks.

Shelves: romance
I was all prepared to dislike this on first impression given the forgettable, emotionless cover and trite title. I have to admit that I’m prejudiced against the Presents/Modern imprint line which seems to me to be very repetitious minor variations on 'rich and powerful man with a dark past conquers innocent nubile young maiden' but Morey is having none of that, and from Holly's first conversation with Franco and she immediately starts goading him with comments like, ‘They were all out of Maserat ...more

As I mentioned before this series is getting better. The Chatsfield siblings are not what they appear to be and it makes for an entertaining read. All broken thanks to parents with a lot to answer for. I liked Franco's story. This Chatsfield kids have this thing about living on the spotlight for all the wrong reasons and yet behind the scenes they are not as shallow or selfish as the public thinks. Franco avoided the spotlight, that's true but his last name was enough to keep Holly on guard unti ...more

Franco Chatsfield needs to secure a deal with Purman Wines or risk being cut off from his trust fund. He offers a ridiculous amount of money with fair terms but is shocked when Holly Purman rejects the deal. Holly hates Franco's rich entitlement and the idea of Purman Wines' reputation getting entangled with the scandalous misadventures of the Chatsfields. Franco only has six weeks to convince Holly to change her mind. This is the fifth book in The Chatsfield continuity series, it can also be re ...more

The author forgot to discuss why Franco left home at 16. What was the argument with his dad was about. Here again we have another one of the siblings who lived his life quietly and wasn't in the trashy magazines. I don't get what about his life they wanted to change? His compassion? His charities? Working with his hands and making something out of his life?

I loved this book! Loved the hero and heroine who were both complex great characters, adored how witty and smart the heroine was, loved the backdrop of wine. An utterly believable, beautiful love story I couldn't put down. Thanks for a lovely Christmas read Trish!

This is like all The Chatsfield books. Hero, heroine, drama that resolves itself. I enjoyed this one particularly because it was set in Australia.

This is the first book that I really enjoyed of this series. Franco is tortured by his past and that makes him adorable. Holly is a bit petulant and sooo desperate to loose her virginity that could makes you hate her, but her issues from her past and the way she redeems herself at the end made me like her. The Cinderella atmosphere during the awards was brilliant and the ending was precious. Even without telling us why Franco leaves his family, the story is well developed and has a smart writing ...more

underwhelming and didn't like the heroine or her judgemental attitude towards the hero when he was a stranger. Didn't care that the hero wasn't wealthy on his own as he was controlled by a trustee of his family's business.

"Morey’s poignant romance stars a once-burnt vintner heroine and a complicated, enigmatic hero. The rural-to-urban landscapes amaze, the winemaking facts elucidate and perfectly placed humor entertains" (RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars).
