#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts exposes a proud family’s deadly secrets in this passionate tale of two Napa Valley rivals...

PR executive Sophia Giambelli loves her job and has never worried about competition. For three generations, her family’s wines have been world-renowned for their quality. But things are about to change at Villa Giambelli. Tereza, the matriarch, has announced a merger with the MacMillan family’s winery—and Sophia will be assuming a new role.

As a savvy businesswoman, Sophia knows she must be prepared for anything...but she isn’t prepared for Tyler MacMillan. They’ve been ordered to work together very closely, to facilitate the merger. Sophia must teach Ty the finer points of marketing—and Ty, in turn, shows her how to get down and dirty, to use the sun, rain, and earth to coax the sweetest grapes from the vineyard.
As they toil together, both in and out of the fields, Sophia is torn between a powerful attraction and a professional rivalry. At the end of the season, the course of the company’s future—and the legacy of the villa—may take an entirely new direction. And when acts of sabotage threaten both the family business and the family itself, Sophia’s quest will be not only for dominance, but also for survival.

    I have been a Nora Roberts fan for many years and The Obsession is by far the best book of hers I have read! It kept my attention from the first page and as soon as I read the last page, I started it again! This would make a great movie!!

    As always, Nora Roberts provided an excellent read. I couldn't put the book down. All the errors in this book where disappointing though. That is why I only give 3 stars.

    This is just such a great book. I was in awe of the depth of the characters(as I always am with Nora Roberts) the descriptions of the villas were just beautifully done. And the twist? As the Italians say- Forget about it!
