From the time Grace enters the hotel to meet with Linc, she is inextricably drawn to the charismatic businessman and Dom. When Grace visits Torch Light, she finds herself partnered with the enigmatic Linc.
After a night of passion, Grace is taken by hunters. Can Linc use their connection to find her before it is too late?

As a fan of Ms. Delta James' Wayward Mates series, there are many similarities in the storyline, but this one will involve a human and a wolf. Lincoln Steele is an Alpha, but not over a pack—yet, not a lone wolf. When he meets Grace Marlow, not only is he impressed with her credentials as a chef, he learns she is also a submissive and wants to play at Torch Light—she is his fated mate. Grace is human, and that isn't going to stop Linc—he will wine and dine her and win her over.
This new series, Tangled Vines, will also revolve around vineyards, and in this story, it will have Grace applying to be executive chef for both Lobo Bahia and Torch Light for the Steele brothers.
Linc: "I think I've found our head chef. She's human. She's also my fated mate. No admonition that I should seek another—that turning a human needs her consent and is not for the faint of heart."
Damian: "Look, Linc, consent can be interpreted in many ways. Most of the best pack mistresses had to be persuaded to one degree or another—Skylar Grainger, Catherine DeMedici, Riley Nichols. Then go get your mate, little brother."
Linc and Grace will conclude their business with him, making her an offer, and she will accept; then later, she will meet him at Torch Light. Linc puts the word out that no other Dom will be involved with her—she is his. They will scene together, which is detailed in the story, and then he takes her home.
The chemistry between these two is instant for both of them. Not only do they pair up well as Dom and sub, but as a couple. But, then there is the danger of the Hunters, and before Linc has a chance to wine and dine her, to win her over, she is kidnapped so that they can destroy him. So the story has plenty of angst, danger, along with passion and romance. There are the D/s between them, but also a spanking scene and intense sex scenes. Unlike some fated mates, Grace learns what fated mates mean and what will take place, and she is willing to accept his claim and make her vows.
"Oooh, great sex and courting. I may have hit the jackpot. Careful big guy, I could fall hard for you. I feel like I've been waiting for you my whole life."
"I feel the same way about you, Butter?"
The story is a fast-paced tale, a spin-off from the Wayward Mates series, and has several people from that series. It also will take place in America but will have mentions of Europe. There is trouble brewing, Hunters coming, and she-wolves are the target.
5.0 out of 5 stars Linc and Grace get together 💕

Linc & Grace’s story was incredible!!! I love the initial meetings and the movement to the incredible enlightenment.
Grace didn’t know anything about the shifter world until Lincare walked in the door and she felt the Alpha wave. There’s no going back!
I’m in love with the series! I can’t wait for more.
