A future with the woman of his dreams is within his grasp...if the past will stay that way. Konigsburg, Texas, Book 4 Erik Toleffson wasn't looking to become Chief of Police. He's got eugh trouble trying to rebuild his relationship with his three brothers who, until just recently, ran the other way when he approached. He's t the bully they grew up with, but bad memories are tough to overcome. Morgan Barrett is as worn out as a vat full of crushed grape skins. She never planned to run Cedar Creek Winery, but there's one else to shoulder the load as her father recovers from an injury. All she needs is a little sleep. Just a five-minute nap in the booth at the Dew Drop Inn...if that guy across the bar would stop staring at her as if putting her head down on the table is a crime. After Morgan yawns in Erik's face, there's where to go but up. With time, though, their relationship warms like a perfectly blended Bordeaux. Until the shady mayor digs into Erik's past and dredges up information that could drive a permanent wedge between him and his brothers-and sour any chance of a future with Morgan. Warning: Contains hot sex with mango sherbet, crooked politicians, yuppy bikers, Bored Ducks, and a Maine Coon Cat with attitude.
