Fun Friday Feature- Late Harvest by Suzanne Barrett

My current read today is- ~Click the image above to go to Amazon~

Kurt von Daniken wants only one thing from Glenna Ryan: The key to making Eiswein - Ice Wine. Five years ago, while working at his family's California winery, she'd begun developing the method to simulate wine made from grapes gathered after a freeze. Now, when the winery desperately needs it, the only person who might be able to duplicate Glenna's process, Kurt's tyrannical Uncle Otto, lies paralyzed by a stroke and near death.

Glenna wants only one thing from the von Danikens: To be left in peace to raise her son, Robbie, who suffers from a birth defect and needs an expensive surgery to repair it. When Kurt suddenly appears at her home, demanding she return to Cresthaven and complete the process, Glenna knows the money she'll earn by doing so will provide Robbie the treatment he needs. She also knows she'll risk having her heart broken, again, by Kurt, the only man she's ever loved.

But, what if he discovers the real reason she left Cresthaven?


What reviewers are saying about Late Harvest-

"Rich chemistry and sensual tension between H and h. Plenty of emotional conflict with misunderstandings and secrets from the past to be uncovered. Clear writing, good pacing, and engaging plot." - msreads

"Suzanne Barrett crams a wealth of emotion, hard work, and social interaction into this short novel. The descriptions, introspections, and humor (ex. the claws of the kitten making a prick that lets out "pompous hot air") grabs the attention and keeps one reading. Best of all is getting to vicariously experience long-suffering love being rewarded with a magnificent acknowledgement and a promised happy-ever-after."

--Long and Short Reviews

"Really fine writing, attractive (honest!) characters, even the secondary characters feel like "real" people.... Also great sexual tension and, sigh, a setting to die for and fantasize about. And, well, um, there's the hero, too."
--Amazon reader

"Romance, tears, arguments, tension - both sexual and as a result of conflict, and a happy ending to boot. The story flowed effortlessly.... I truly enjoyed this story and look forward to reading other books by Suzanne Barrett."
--Romancing the Book

"LATE HARVEST is a bountiful feast for an avid reader, a feast to be savored." --Under the Covers Reviews

"...a poignant love story of two people who must come to terms with their past if they have any chance of recapturing the love they once shared. ...a book which will definitely tug at your heart strings.." --The Romance Reviews
