Good romance. This book takes us back into the world of the California Napa Valley and wine country. This Baci sister is the middle daughter, Stevie. She was always the wild child. Shed rather punch the boys than kiss them.
When our story opens Stevies ex fiancé is planning his wedding to a beautiful princess and wants to book the Baci Winery. Unfortunately Stevie is forced to be in charge of it when her sister cant. Meanwhile, the princesses brother is there to ensure Stevie doesnt sabotage

Teetering between a 4 and a 5 star rating for this book, so I will call it 4 1/2. I have read some real intense, emotional, thinkers lately so it hard to rate this book in comparison. If you are looking for a good, easy read, humorous story with great characters, strong sexual connections, with a few choke up moments, you've got it right here.

The second book of Christie Ridgeway's Three Kisses series was an absolute gem. The main characters Jack and Stevie had instant chemistry and got under

I truly enjoyed and loved this book! The chemistry between Jack and Stevie was smokin' hot, and it was also nice to see Roxy and Emerson get their happy ending as well-- they're the couple that's getting married at Tanti Baci by the way! The funny thing is that these four are all related and connected to each other in every way. The heroine in this book, Stephania Banci used to date Emerson... but he broke up with her. Roxanne Parini happens to be our hero's younger sister and she's getting ...more

I love stories with Princes and Princesses. I always have and I don't know why.

Jack is royal prince visiting California. Stevie is the owner of Princess Limousine Service. They meet at a New Year's Eve party, where Stevie is there to pick up her ex, Emerson, and his new fiance, a royal princess, named Roxy.

I loved the characters. Stevie was a strong woman, who has adopted this strong tomboy persona. She's hard on the outside and soft on the inside. Jack is just like her. He's this infamous

I liked this one a lot, maybe even better than book 1. I think Stevie's character was more interesting than Allie's. One of the things I like about this series is that there is an alternate story going on as well as the main story. Gil's romance in book 1 was super sweet and hot. And in this one, we got to watch Princess Roxy decide what to do with Emerson. But the main story was all Stevie and Jack. I didn't get a chance to get really invested in this book but I think I could have. I'm really ...more
This is the second book in Ridgway's Three Kisses series, about the Baci sisters and their winery in Napa Valley. I enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to the rest of the series. I wasn't disappointed. Both Stevie and Jack were excellent characters. Ridgway really excels at writing deep, emotional romances. I only wish I didn't have to wait another 6 months for the 3rd book.

The blurb is kinda misleading... this doesn't look like something I want to bother with now that I've actually read some of it.

Hmm.. Well, it did not live up to my expectations. I am little confused about the ratings.. It was OK in some part and I LIKED it in some part.. So I would give this book **1/2

As you all know this the story of middle Baci sister Stevie. Stevie had cut off from her sisters the most. I did not know what I was going find in this book. After reading this book, I guess I loved the previous book Crush on You more. Allie's story was much better than Stevie.

This is the second book in Ridgway's Three Kisses series, about the Baci sisters and their winery in Napa Valley. I enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to the rest of the series. Both Stevie and Jack were excellent characters. Ridgway really excels at writing deep, emotional romances that aren't bogged down or too heavy.

Stevie is the most closed off of the three sisters. As the tomboy, she's always felt somehow inferior to her sisters, not to mention out of step with them. Unlike the
Well, this is my first book by this author. It was recommended by someone on goodreads and I thought I would give her a shot since I am kind of on a contemporary romance run right now. To put it simply, I liked it-but didn't love it. There were things I liked about it and things that bugged me a little as well.
First of all, let me say that the storyline is a little far-fetched considering it's the old prince falls for a commoner plot. The way she does it though makes the characters seem a

While she and her sisters own Tanti Baci Winery she wants no part in running it. When her older sister Allie breaks her foot and has surgery Stevie finds herself assisting in the wedding planning for her former love, Emerson, and his royal fiance, Princess Roxanne of Ardenia.

I was browsing through Goodreads one night when I saw that there is a lot of new romance books coming out in the next couple of months. While doing this, I stumbled upon the Three Kisses series by Christie Ridgway. Then He Kissed Me is the second book in the series. The summary sounded good, the reviews were positive and that compelled me to take a chance on the books. And boy, I was pleasantly surprised, and really happy that I did!

This is one of those books that you just wanna

My thoughts:

I truly must read more contemporary romance, it is so refreshing, and real, and still fairytale love, awww.

This is the second book, but I jumped right in and missed nothing. In the last book the first Baci sister found true love, and in this one it is time for Stevie, the tomboy to find her love. She always played with boys, and she is not seen as the most feminine person around, she also hides her feeling. But I liked her, she was perfect as she was, and behind that mask she hid a

Then He Kissed Me by Christie Ridgway
Contemporary Romance- Jan. 4th, 2011
3 1/2 stars

Out of the Baci sisters, Stevie is the middle girl. Unlike her eldest or the youngest sister, Stevie does not help out at the Baci Winery. Instead she focuses on her own business called, the Napa Princess Limousine. When the Baci sisters transform the winery into a wedding destination, Stevie ends up as the limo chaffeur and wedding planner for her ex-boyfriend a man who abruptly dumped her for a real Princess.
Both heroes have strong similarities with the ones I read about in my last book :
- the heroine has always been a tomboy, has lots of male friends whom she spent time with and who often forget she is indeed a woman. She looks really tough on the outside, not to allow herself to care too much and get hurt again
- the hero had a traumatic event in his past and only goes through life since that.
However this book is the perfect example that it can work perfectly, that some seamingly cliches

3.5 stars. This is one of those books that you just wanna curl up with on a weekend and enjoy late into the night.
It's about Stevie Baci and Prince Jacque or Jack as he'd rather be called. I was definitely looking forward to reading this after 'Crush on you' which featured the youngest of the Three Baci sisters. See, Stevie is the middle child. The daughter who was always getting herself into messes. Literally. She was a tomboy in her youth and still is even as an adult. I liked that about her.

This is the second in the series and just as intoxicating as the first! Never a dull moment in the lives of the Baci sisters.

This one features Stephania Baci who, in addition to helping at the family winery, also owns and operates a limousine service. Sometimes that is real hard to swallow since everyone in the small town of Edenville knows everything about everyone.

Stevie ends up helping coordinate the wedding of her ex when her sister Allie breaks her foot. And the new fiancé s brother is

I really liked stevie's character. She was strong willed and had a take-no-prisoners attitude. She was a tomboy but it turns out under all that...she was actually...a woman. Her male friends took it for granted that she would laugh at all the crude jokes, join in on poker night, and never actually act like a girl. All it took was her now ex dumping her and him then finding love with none other than her complete real-life princess. Then to top it all off, the winery that has been in ...more

This is the second book in the series. Three sisters have promised their father to keep the vineyard running. Stevie is the middle sister & runs a limo rental company. With the younger sister, Allie, out of town with her fiancee (& a leg injury), Stevie is roped into overseeing the wedding of a princess and Stevie's ex-boyfriend. The princess's brother, Jack, thinks Stevie will do something to break up the happy couple so he vows to stick close to her.

This is book two in the Baci Sisters trilogy. I read book one first and then book three. There was just something about this book (reading the back cover) that didn't grab my interest initially. I knew I would read it sometime because I like Christie Ridgway books and I knew I'd have to complete the series but it took me a while to get around to it. Stevie Baci is the middle child, a tomboy and doesn't feel like she fits in with her sisters. She's a closet romantic and doesn't let people in ...more
I usually do not like the middle books of a series as much as the first and last book; however, I did like this one more than the first in this Three Kisses trilogy. I think it was the sarcasm in this one. The first book was a cute romance, and mushier (in a good way), this one was spunky, snarky, and just had more flare. I have a feeling the third in this series is going to have fireworks. There are snippets in this second book that show you preview to the third book.

This second book in the Intoxicating series is the story of Stevie, who has unwillingly become the wedding planner for her ex and his real life princess bride. The brides brother, Jack, is going to be all up in Stevie's business to make sure Stevie isn't going to sabotage his little sister's wedding. Jack and his sister were kidnapped several years ago and both have trauma induced fears and some guilt that they need to deal with before they can move on in life.

I came to Christie Ridgway with one of her first books, Knitting a Wild Sexy Bikini. I really enjoyed the romance in the story. The promoted plot of saving the winery really wasn't a big part of the story. It was more about one of the Baci sisters and a handsome young prince transplanted in Napa Valley. Napa is one of my favorite places to visit so reading a story about the workings of this community was very fun. I enjoyed the play between the various characters, the search for a possible ...more
This one is very much like the first one, deeper than what the blurb seemingly promises. Jack and Stevie each have their own issues to work out. Some of them have to do with family and some of them have to do with their own pasts. Jack's story is as compelling, albeit much more dramatic, than Penn's in the first book.

I enjoyed:
1) the alternating, dual povs, told in the third person.
2) the writing style of this author. It struck me somewhere in the first half of this book that Ridgway's writing
