Series: A Sign of Love (Libra)
Publication Date: 10th September 2015
Kira Dallaire is desperate.
Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.
Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.
Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.
What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.
As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I liked this book; really liked it. But, I didn’t love it, and I so easily could have, so that makes me sad.
The writing was good. The story was good. The characters were engaging and entertaining. Grayson and Kira had fantastic chemistry and I utterly fell in love with the supporting characters that surround the Hawthorne estate and winery.
I loved how the “marriage of convenience” angle, so commonly seen in Historical romances and Mills & Boon type stories, was fitted into a new adult- younger, cooler and way more fun - romance.
I enjoyed the damaged characters coming together, initially mistrustful, and watching how their relationship evolved.
What I didn’t like was the way that Grayson consistently hurt Kira. I didn’t like how easily he threw everything away then just expected to pick up the pieces when it finally suited him to get his head out of his ass.
That is was stopped me loving this book.
But! The fantastic epilogue was worth everything you had to go through to get there. Lots and lots of happy feels! And I absolutely freaking loved the whole Dragon / witch thing…
Mia Sheridan has skills. I must read more from this author. I suggest everyone should too.
