The rebel of the Marcelli family, Joe never joined his sisters Katie, Francesca, and Brenna in running the winery business. Instead he chose a life of military service. But now that this handsome, headstrong former Navy SEAL has received a new undercover assignment--protecting none other than the commander in chief's daughter--he finds himself back at the California vineyard he defiantly left behind. First-daughter Darcy Jenson has been placed in hiding at the Marcelli Winery after surviving a kidnapping attempt...and now it's Joe's job to keep the fearful, fiery beauty out of harm's way. Begrudgingly, Joe heeds his presidential order--until "babysitting" Darcy proves to be the greatest pleasure he's ever known. How can Joe protect Darcy from danger, when he's falling dangerously in love? And can Darcy trust that Joe's intentions are true--when now else's have been?
When starting the book and finding it skipped a couple of years, I almost wanted to stop reading it. One of the things I enjoyed about the first three in the series is that the time didn't lapse between books. This one was different. But I kept reading and I am glad I did. What a great story. I enjoyed hearing the 'updates' on the past main characters and most of them are a good part of this one. All in all it is still a great book and I am looking forward to final book in this series.
