About the Author
GLENNA WEST grew up in a loving home in the South. She always dreamed of being an Author. Today she lives a simple life on a farm in Tupelo, Mississippi with her husband and their numerous animals. They are lucky enough to have their children and grandchildren remain close. There is nothing more special to Glenna than family even above her dreams of being published. She says writing romances is exhilarating when you find the perfect characters and storyline. The words simply pour out onto the paper. Stories take on a life of their own and can lead readers through extremely emotional turmoil to the most delicious of love making. She says she is honored to be the vessel these stories use to come to life. Visit Glenna’s website at: http://www.glennawest.com C. DEANNE ROWE has always loved the power of words. The way they could make her cry, laugh, or provoke all range of emotions. She wouldn’t be who she is without words. She learned to feel good listening to songs which filled her heart. She learned the meaning of love watching all the good romance movies. Of course, there was sex scattered through the pages of the paperbacks she hid from her parents. Words have always been her friend, her comfort, her teacher. It was only logical she would grow up and want to be an author, to spin a tale which would captivate readers. Her life’s journey has taken her in this direction and she only hopes she doesn’t disappoint those who choose to follow.

Growing up, she spent as much of her time with books as she could. She loves that first smell of a book as you open its pages and the wonderful feel of it in your hands. Like most writers, her house is filled with books she’s read countless times. She writes hot, sexy, sizzling romances where the hero is just what her heroine needs. He’s strong and confident with broad shoulders and six-pack abs. His face is more rugged than handsome but he has a heart of gold hidden underneath all his protective armor. She has a micro-mini teacup Chihuahua named “Mouse” but says she should have named her “Killer” instead! Visit Maggie’s website at: http://www.maggierivers.com

One of the reasons that I wanted to review this book as well is the unique concept created by these three authors, who are collectively known as The Stiletto Girls. All three share a love of shoes and writing, and these shared joys bring them together in a superb collaboration. This is a self-published book, which shows that authors can create great platforms around the writing which brings them joy.
With summer reading season just around the corner, this book would make a great addition to the beach bag or the kindle. Put a glass of good wine in your hand, hold the book with your other, and enjoy.
The first novella, Cantrell Vineyards, is a touching story of a woman's work to rebuild the vineyard she'd created with her late husband and carry on their shared dream. When the man whom her husband had saved comes to the vineyard to tell the widow thank you, sparks heat up and Rose realizes she needs to move on. I loved the touching way the author handled the widow relationship and the signs that she receives from her husband. A sweet story, this one makes you think of long nights and lingering glances.
The second novella, Escape to Napa Valley, showcases a heroine who does what many wish they could--simply follow their dreams. She leaves behind a boyfriend who can't even be bothered to pay attention to her and goes to Napa Valley to take wine making classes. There she discovers a passion for wine, and for Napa Valley, along with a certain handsome gentleman. Watching Cherish, the heroine, go through the decision-making process to take the leap into her new life provides tension and makes the reader want to cheer along with Cherish when she finally makes her decision and claims her man. This is a sensual story, with the details flowing like a rich merlot.
The final story, Wine Country Affair, details what happens when a bookstore owning romance author meets a handsome man who has come into town to purchase the store. Rife with conflict and tension, this story heats up no matter if the characters are in, or out of, bed. A sizzling ending to a great anthology.
I found the offerings in this work to be balanced and loved that the author's individual voices shone through. A great read!
