Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
It isn't nicking an expensive watch or a diamond bracelet that lands streetwise Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It’s a darn sweater. When a judge decides she has to return to her terminally ill mother, who dumped her in an orphanage more than twelve years ago, Jona finds herself doing time through charity work on her estranged aunt’s vineyard in France.
Jona is determined to sneak off at the first chance she gets—until she meets Julian, her mother’s caretaker. Playful, understanding, and sinfully sexy, he’s everything she’s ever dreamed of—but she’s not about to let him know that. Because even though he’s fast becoming Jona’s best friend, he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end...
So when the first week in her new home is over, Jona asks herself two things: One, how did she let herself end up in Julian’s arms after all? And two, how the hell did he awaken her mother from the dead?

“It’s a little bigger than your small room back in London, isn’t it?”
At Julian’s soft taunt I whirled about. He leaned against the doorjamb, his thumbs hooked through the belt loops of his jeans.
I straightened and put on my well-rehearsed girlie grin. “You’re still here? Shouldn’t you be heading home to your family by now?” The mocking edge to my voice did nothing to rattle his relaxed composure.
“No, dear. Julian is living with us,” Marie said cheerfully as she exited my mother’s room and grabbed my wrist. “Come with me. I will show you the kitchen while I put on the kettle for a cup of tea.” She tugged on my arm until I followed her, but I couldn’t hide my horror as I caught Julian’s amused gaze.
As he winked, his beautiful blue eyes held the promise for a very special six weeks.
