Dolores Chance.
When I was falling apart, I fell in love.
It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.
I ran away from life and ended up running into…his dog.
Actually, his dog ran into me. I don’t care for dogs.
Then I met the owner.

Garrett Fox.
When my neighbor’s sister came to visit,
I promised to show her around town.
I’m an investor in things, not people, not emotions.

Favorite Quotes:

He’s like a dreamy candy bar. Crisp and decadent on the outside, but nuggety good on the inside.

“You break her heart, and I’ll kill you.” The threat comes from a little old lady I didn’t hear approaching even though she uses a cane to stand inside the kitchen… “I own a 1965 Remington .22 I keep in good condition, and I’m not afraid to use it.”

Messes are what men make, and that’s why God created women. To clean them up.

Written in my favorite dual POV, this tense yet enga

I guess strong confident women and decent men are not the benchmark of this author...

Poor heroine, this woman deserved better than a caricature of a man aka billionaire manwhore in his 50s, who, I suppose, miraculously turned put to be a one-woman man? Ridiculous 🙄

Dolores was first introduced in Second Chance when she took up her brother’s offer and jumped on a plane to California. For the last 27 years she has been working in the family diner, caring for her mother and grandmother and having the occasional booty call with Rusty from the local MC. She has never put her own needs first and to be honest, she just needs some time to breath.

Living at the beach in her brothers condo will hopefully provide her with the peace and tranquility she really needs rig

Wine & Dine is the latest installment in LB Dunbar’s Silver Foxes series, and she has done it yet again! We do get to see some scenes with some of our favorite characters, Denton, Mati, and Magnolia – that woman’s spunk & humor had me laughing so hard … wait until you get to the Sock scene!! We got a glimpse of Ivy & Gage as well. Having said that, I cannot wait for Jimmy’s book!

In my opinion this one, it took a slightly different turn to her typical characters. In W&D, both Delo

5 Star Review Wine & Dine (Sexy Silver Foxes) by L B Dunbar

I have only recently discovered L.B.Dunbar and I have no idea why that is as I love her style of writing. The Silver Foxes stories for the over 40’s is a fabulous series of books that I have fallen in love with. Each book has left a smile on my face and Wine & Dine is no exception.
I particularly like that the characters are more mature than in the majority of books that I read. It is wonderful to read a series about characters wh

What does Dorothy do when she's older and stuck in kansas?
does she still have the spunk to go on an adventure?
What if hope has dulled in her eyes and she needs a tin man or scarecrow or cowardly lion to show her that she always had the choice to change her destiny, she just didn't know it yet?
It's a sensitive Coming To realisation story of a woman lost in the ennui before she has even lived fully. To see a flower blooming, even a bit late, is a beautiful thing to watch and a story to read ab

I always enjoy LB Dunbar's books, but this one was probably my favorite. I loved it.

When 47 year old Dolores' mother dies, her brother sends her off to recharge in his condo on the beach in California. Here, she meets the hero of the story, Garrett Fox (age 50), who is her brother's neighbor and the absolute opposite of Dolores. She's the owner of a small town diner, and he's a rich businessman. She and Garrett both have a lot of baggage and because of this, neither of them really believe that a

With her brother Denton back home after being away for decades, Dolores Chance is off to California for a well-deserved rest, courtesy of Denton in whose home she will stay. She needs that week alone to regroup, but had not anticipated Garrett Fox, her (gorgeous) next-door neighbour, to be there, nor his dog!

WINE & DINE is one of the most realistic contemporary romances I have ever read, because it's as simple and as complicated as life itself. I love that Dolores was a sexual woman, making

As always, LB Dunbar creates romance for us over 40 crowds that just wow you. When we last left Dolores in Second Chances, she was driving off. We all speculated who she would end up with when it came time for her story. The blurb will tell you that she didn't end up with who we expected her too, but am I disappointed? Not in the least because it also means that there will be more for us to come in this beautiful world of older men and women, everyone having their own crosses to bear, little bit ...more

Another fantastic read from the queen of over 40 romance, L.B Dunbar certainly knows what to give her fans in her romance for the over 40 series and Wine&Dine did not disappoint it’s was everything I have come to expect and so much more from this very talented author.

Another stellar story by the Queen of Over 40 Romance!!!

I don't think Ms. Dunbar realizes how appreciative us "vintage" gals are with her #SexySilverFoxes stories.  It gives me a bit of validation that even though I am over 40, we can still feel the smexy times just like our younger compatriots!

This is Deloris' story! Denton's sister is overworked and under appreciated. She is settling with her lot in life. She gets a much needed opportunity to run away and focus on herself.  She takes advantage

Dolores Chance is a strong heroine. She is the kind of person who is care taker for all and ignores her own needs. But when she is sort of forced to step back and think of herself, she lands crash into Garrett Fox (or rather, his dog) Incredible!

“Do you know how I feel about you?
Can you hear my heart beating for the first time in a long time?
Does the rhythm of yours match mine?”

Garrett tells himself he will keep his distance from this “off limits”, temporary neighbor but resistance is futile

While in California, Dolores meets her brothers gorgeous neighbor, Garrett Fox. Garrett knows he shouldn’t get involved with his neighbor’s sister, but he also can’t resist her. The two of them are drawn to each other and the more time the begin to spend together th

Dolores Chance is having a midlife crisis after burying her mother, her only brother returns to their small town to help her, give her a break from the last twenty years of taking care of both their parents. They switch places she heads out to California and he stays in Georgia taking care of their grandmother and Dolores diner. What could possibly go w ...more

First of all: I love it 😍

When we last got a glimpse of Dolores in 'Second Chance' (Denton + Mati), she was already on her way to California, to have a few days off of life. Dolores owns a diner. She's not overly successful, but she's her own boss and not dependent on anyone. Years ago she "lost" her brother Denton to his career and now she has to overcome another loss, her mother. She's on her own now and a little bit depressed and very sad. She needs some time to find herself. She starts search

When your over forty it seems your life can only get better. Dolores Chance has been stuck in a rut and there seems to be no getting out, taking care of her mother, her grandmother and her business but when your brother comes back and tells her to go and take a break she doesn’t hesitate but what she never expects is to meet Garrett Fox.
Garrett Fox is a very successful business man, living what he thinks is his best life, but when he encounters Dolores in the oddest of places he realizes maybe h

Well L.B. has done it again! Another amazing story with another couple you can’t help but fall in love with! Dolores is a very independent woman who has held her family together for a very long time! She’s finally able to runaway to try and figure out what she really wants out of her life. In comes smelly Wally ;) and his definitely not smelly owner Garrett. Garrett is yummy!

L.B. Dunbar does it again..ties me to my Kindle while reading her latest chapter in the Over 40, Sexy Silver Foxes series. When I see one of these books is coming out soon, I count down the days until I can finally get my hands on it!

In Second Chance, when we last were in Blue Ridge, Georgia, former rocker, Denton Chance, finally found his happiness after coming back to town and reconnecting with his high school crush. Since he's been gone, his slightly older sister, Dolores, has been

I just love these over 40 themed books and may I say L B Dunbar writes them superbly. Her Silver Fox series is one of my very favorites a must read if you like this genre. Wine and Dine, like the others in this series, has strong characters that know their minds and what they want out of life (or so they think).

Dolores is Denton’s sister. (We met her in Denton’s story: Second Chance). When Denton took off from home at a young age, Dolores was left to deal with her disaster for parents, her agin

This book is absolutely a stand alone book but I highly recommend reading Second Chance before reading this one because otherwise you may very well be confused about some of the characters that are mentioned and their relationships. We meet Delores and Garret in this one. Delores has come to her brother's condo in California in order to get away and figure out where exactly her life is going. She never expects someone like Garret to be there. Especially when she feels like everything is falling ...more

Wine and Dine is about a Sexy Silver Fox and I know that it’s an over 40 romance, but really I think anyone of any age can relate to what our heroine, Dolores, is going through. I mean, most of us have experienced a time in our lives when it all got to be too much and we just wanted to get away, right? Lucky for Dolores, she has little brother, Denton hand her the keys to his ride and condo in Cali. Road Trip!

While contemplating her life on the beach, she meets the neighbors. Garrett and his dog

No Dorothy, you aren't in Kansas anymore....
Delores takes that leap and hits the road with her brother Dentons car, plastic and cash and heads to Cali - she needs to grieve the loss of her mother, she needs to blow off some steam, regroup and become Delores again. Little does she know the Tin Man lives next door to her brother, Garrett Fox had me swooning...and I loved Wally instantly...especially when he first meets Delores! So funny!!

Dolores needs a break. She’s been holding the family business together for most of her adult life. In walks Denton, her long lost Rockstar brother, with a plan. Before she knows it she’s flying across the country and dipping her toes in the sand. Meeting the gorgeous neighbor, Garret Fox wasn’t in her plan.

Garret Fox is the quintessential bachelor. No sending dates, never take them home and can’t make a promise past tonight.

Following hot on the heels of Denton and Mati’s story, Second Chance, Wine & Dine tells Dolores’ story.

Denton’s sister is worn down by life. She nursed her dying mother, cares for her grandmother, the inimitable Magnolia, and runs the local diner.

Denton persuades her to leave town on a long overdue vacation and spend some time at his home in California. Reluctantly, she agrees after Denton promises to look after things while she’s gone.

In California she meets Denton’s neighbour, Garrett Fox

L.B. Dunbar has another Sexy Silver Fox hit on her hands with Wine & Dine! If you love a steamy over 40 romance than this book is perfect for you. She knows how to write characters that are relatable within stories that are believable and books you don’t want to put down.
Love can happen at anytime and at any age, usually when you least expect it. For both Garrett and Delores that is exactly what happens.

Dolores and Garrett are quite the couple - though they fight it for 90% of the book. I enjoy a little resistance, but this one might have almost went too far...though not entirely because there were reasons behind their feelings and actions so I understood in the end.

Dolores runs away to California to escape her life. She’s been on her own and busy running her own business for so long she doesn’t know how to relax and just be. Garrett is fine with his life of solitude until his

This is yet another amazing book by L.B. Dunbar and the over 40 series! Dolores is the sister of Denton that we met in one of the prior books, Second Chance. Note you don't have to have read Second Chance but I would recommend to have the back story a little on Denton & Dolores' relationship. Dolores has been the caretaker of her mother & grandmother for years and now that her mom has died, Denton (her brother) recommends she get away and go to his place in California to rest, relax and ...more

Another fabulous addition to the Sexy Silver Foxes series! We finally get to hear Dolores's story and it did not disappoint.

While this book was able to be read as a stand-alone it's definitely much better if you read the series in order because the stories do build on each other and your favorite characters are revisited.

In this story Dolores is finally getting a chance to escape her small town life and travel to California where she meets her brother's next door neighbor Garrett Fox. The to st

She's burnout on life. Since her brother left twenty-seven years ago, Dolores was left to support her alcoholic mother and father. The abuse, incriminations, and loveless existence was tempered by her grandmother and her belief in her abilities. Now, after burying her mother, her grandmother was all she had left, besides the Magnolia diner. Everything was rundown. The diner, their home, and most of all her soul.

As her brother Denton Chance appears again, he feels guilty about the lack of support

Wine and Dine is a book in the Sexy Silver Foxes Series. First off I want to thank L.B. Dunbar for writing this book. I loved it and it was nice to read about people in their late 40’s. I would also love to read a love story with them in their 50’s or even in their 60’s. There is still plenty of life in mature adults. Now on to my review for Wine and Dine. This is Dolores Chance and Garrett Fox’s story.

To her benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E. and After Care), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet).
