When these two strangers meet, a one-night stand delivers unexpected surprises.

About the author

 Tania Joyce is an Australian author of erotic, contemporary and new adult romance novels. Her stories thread romance, drama and passion into beautiful locations ranging from the dazzling lights of Sydney Harbour or the glitter of New York, to the rural countryside of the Hunter Valley or Darling Downs. 

She’s widely travelled, has a diverse background in the corporate world and has a love for shopping, shoes and Shiraz. She’s rarely seen without glitter, sparkle and stilettos. Her quirk is she collects key rings everywhere she goes and often has an intriguing tale about each one. 
Tania draws on all her real-life experiences and combines them with her very vivid dreams to form the foundation of her novels. She likes to write about strong-minded, career-oriented heroes and heroines that go through drama-filled hell, have steamy encounters and risk everything as they endeavor to find their happy-ever-after.
She grew up loving books like Anne of Green Gables, reading the classics like Pride and Prejudice, and getting lost in the world of fantasy, like The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan, before finding her home in the romance genre. 

Only unearthing the desire to write after having children, Tania now shuffles the hours in her day between part-time work, full-time family life and never-finding-enough-time to write. One day she hopes to find balance! She lives in Queensland with her husband and two boys. When she’s not writing, she enjoys camping, hot yoga, and the company of friends and family – especially if it’s over a glass of wine!

My Review:

When it comes to the genre of erotic fiction, Tania Joyce is a safe bet. And that is saying something because the market is plagued with enormous titles in the genre, and most of them have cliched plots.
Joyce brings to her books the crucial element of a plot, which can so easily be neglected otherwise in the genre. The fact that the plot is prioritised over the steamy scenes is commendable, and even more is the fact that everything is measured to be of just the right amount- the twists, the suspense, the sexual tension, the characters' dilemma.
Another important feature that sets her novels apart is the workplace setting, which gives it a feminist tinge, much to my relief.

The way she has linked the plot of the sequal to the preceding novel was amazing too.
Coming over to the book, it is the story of Kelleigh who is here on an assignment, and the vineyards are a beautiful setting. She has personal issues of her own, what with being broke and having been deceived by her ex-boyfriend. Her job is the one thing keeping her sane, and she is good at it.
Her paths cross with those of Troy, our male lead, whose personality is introduced and unflowered page by page.

A business deal is in the pipeline, and it could make or break Kelleigh's career. But, what it can also do is destroy the vineyards that Troy, along with his partner, has brought up with an astute knowledge and business acumen. The stakes, as is evident, are high.

Through the plot twists, the book is a thorough entertainer, giving the reader just what s/he expects from it.
