A red-hot romance between a career-focused woman and a determined younger man?

Doctor’s orders!

Dr. Julian Brandon is too charming, too sexy and too young for Chandra Valentine. But after the successful bachelor rescues her—twice—she owes him. Still reeling from life-changing family revelations, Chandra somehow agrees to pose as Julian’s girlfriend. And now the irresistible Julian has plans that start with seduction under the mistletoe and end with their fake relationship erupting into a scorching affair. Now Chandra’s questioning everything she believed about love…


I’m so excited for this series! Reese Ryan is spinning off her ever popular Bourbon Brothers series when a newly found family member and his fam begin to bring Valentine Vineyards to life. There are several characters to keep track of in the unraveling of this new family, but the familiar faces of a few from King’s Finest made it feel like a visit with old friends. Attention grabbing characters, family drama galore and the ever promised hope of romance have me diving in head first for more in the series!

Chandra Valentine has an adorable and dramatic meet cute with the man of her dreams just as she’s embarking on a roller coaster ride of family expectations and life drama. I loved her spunky attitude and all around accomplished outlook.

Julian Brandon is kindhearted and sincere but he’s dreading the obligation he has hanging over his head more than he can stay. I enjoyed seeing him make peace with past hurt and disappointment to walk proudly into his future.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a close knit family with lots of drama and clashing personalities joining forces to conquer the world and love, one sibling at a time.
