Author Giovanna Siniscalchi is pleased to announce the upcoming release of her new historical romance novel, The True Purpose of Vines. Scheduled for release on April 25, 2022, the book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.
A woman desperate to save her vineyards…
Julia Costa is the best winemaker in the Douro. After her late husband burdened her lands with debt, she vows to defend her legacy by any means necessary.
The Englishman sent to uncover her secrets…
The last thing Griffin Maxwell wants is to waste time mired in a Portuguese backwater. Still, to guarantee a partnership with Oporto’s largest trading firm, he agrees to travel up the Douro River and chase a reluctant debtor.
A meeting of two cultures…
Nothing prepared Griffin for the headstrong winemaker. She tempts him into enjoying Portugal and is a threat to his carefully constructed plans. The arrogant Englishman arrived at Julia’s lands, believing himself entitled to everything, including her heart. But how can she resist an attraction headier than a vintage?
An enemy too powerful to fight alone…
When a mysterious plague decimates Europe’s vineyards, Griffin and Julia struggle to find a cure, blind-tasting their way into an intoxicating passion.
But reality demands an answer: will they allow cultural differences to separate them, or will they fight for the love of a lifetime?
