Book excerpt/synopsis : From USA Today bestselling author Jan Moran comes a riveting novella that’s as rich and irresistible as a fine cabernet wine. Napa Valley, 1956: Years ago, after Juliana Cardona’s fiancé was killed in an army ambush, she didn’t know if she could ever find the strength to risk love again. Now Juliana, who has a passion for winemaking, is determined to build her own business as a wine publicist and create an independent life. But when Juliana holds a press event in San Francisco, she meets a mysterious winemaker, Henri Laurent, who is everything she never thought she’d find again. However, Juliana is shocked to discover that Henri is hiding a long-buried secret that threatens to devastate their budding relationship. In order to find happiness and the life she’d once thought was gone forever, she must find the strength to uncover tragedies and face the troubled past with the man she loves—but only if her heart can risk the chance of love once more. This is a companion novella to The Winemakers, a full-length historical saga that has been called "a solid pick for fans of romantic sagas" by Library Journal.

Book excerpt/synopsis : A young widow. A husband she thought she knew. Will a chocolatier’s secret destroy the family left behind? "A solid pick for fans of historical romances combined with a heartbreaking mystery.” – Library Journal San Francisco, 1953: Heartbroken over the mysterious death of her husband, Celina Savoia, a second-generation chocolatière, resolves to take their young son to Italy’s shimmering Amalfi coast to introduce him to his father’s family. Just as she embarks on a magical, romantic life of making chocolate by the sea surrounded by a loving family, she begins to suspect that her husband had a dark secret—forged in the final days of WWII—that could destroy the relationships she’s come to cherish. While a second chance at love is tempting, the mystery of her husband’s true identity thwarts her efforts. Challenged to pursue the truth or lose the life she’s come to love, Celina and her late husband’s brother, Lauro, must trace the past to a remote, Peruvian cocoa region to face the deceit that threatens to shatter their lives. In The Chocolatier, Jan Moran, an international bestselling author of the contemporary Summer Beach series, and the historical novels The Winemakers and Scent of Triumph from St. Martin's Press, offers a testament to the power of forgiveness and the resilience of love, along with insights into the world of chocolate-making. The Chocolatier is also available in audiobook. For readers of Danielle Steel, Renee Rosen, Susan Meissner, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Chanel Cleeton, and Gill Paul. “A novel that gives fans of romantic sagas a compelling voice to follow.” – Booklist “Jan Moran is the new queen of the epic romance.” – USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Forster Excerpt: One chocolate truffle had changed her destiny. Indeed, it was one of Celina’s best—a silky cocoa powder-dusted truffle filled with raspberry-infused, dark chocolate ganache and enrobed with a couverture, a layer of rich chocolate that melted optimally with the warmth of the body. After she had offered one to a weary, dark-haired soldier who had just returned from the European front, he introduced himself as Tony Savoia, an Italian immigrant whose family had owned and operated Cioccolata Savoia before war rationing had made sugar difficult to obtain. And so the journey begins...give yourself the gift of The Chocolatier now.

But challenges loom, and Marina must quickly become more creative than ever, especially when her children need help. Her sister Kai's position with a musical theater troupe forces more changes.

Reviews "Jan Moran is a favorite author of mine.

When I pick one up, I know it will be a fun read with wonderful characters. The women will be intelligent businesswomen and loyal to their families and friends. There will be sweet romances. It is refreshing to have a series in which not all the central characters are "Barbie doll" types in their 20s. In Coral Cottage, Marina Moore is 40ish while the delightful, yet mysterious Ginger is nearly 80. The perfect beach or weekend read." — B.J.'s Reviews

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Monsters under Glass explores our enduring fascination with hothouses and exotic blooms, from their rise in ancient times, through the Victorian vogue for plant collecting, to the vegetable monsters of twentieth-century science fiction and the movies, comics, and video games of the present day. Our interest in hothouses can be traced back to the Roman emperor Tiberius, but it was only in the early nineteenth century that a boom in exotic plant collecting and new glasshouse technologies stimulated the imagination of novelists, poets, and artists, and the hothouse entered the creative language in a highly charged way. Decadent writers in England and Europe—including Charles Baudelaire and Oscar Wilde—transformed the hothouse from a functional object to a powerful metaphor of metropolitan life, sexuality, and being replete with a dark underside of decay and death; and of consciousness itself, nurtured and dissected under glass. In a study as wide-ranging, vivid, and beautiful as our beloved exotic blooms themselves, Jane Desmarais charts the history and influence of these humid, tropical worlds and their creations, providing a steamy window onto our recent past.
