Sugar heiress Leilani Manolo and French wine maker Aristide Laurent defied death and discovered a magnetic attraction during one turbulent San Francisco winter, but they knew a future together was impossible.
Leilani belonged in Honolulu heading the family business and caring for her dying mother, and Aristide is destined to fulfil his promise as an award-winning vintner for one of California’s rising wine ventures.
But living apart is even harder than accepting permanent separation.
And when Aristide learns Leilani is being pressured into a ‘dynastic’ marriage to one of the Hawaiian King’s senior advisors, he suspects bad blood running deep.
In his quest to protect Leilani, his new best friend, Honolulu lawyer Titus Cooke, and Leilani’s ‘overlooked’ sister Malia Manolo, play a vital role. Malia is beautiful, capable, and partially blind sight from childhood measles – an impairment which leads to others to underestimate her – at their cost.
Aristide and friends face a torturous choice. Reveal the true depths of Lani’s betrayal at the cost of likely lifelong rejection, or risk her losing everything she holds dear.
