Whether it is the lush, fragrant fields of Bella Vino, her family’s vineyard, or the fast-paced New York City streets, Samantha Pierce navigates her worlds with equal grace. As tough as she is beautiful, she has taken the mom-and-pop operation to the international scene and built a reputation as a woman who is not to be trifled with. At least, not in the boardroom.
The bedroom is a different story, especially since she started dating Alexander, a gorgeous financier with an Ivy League pedigree. Their passion for life and for each other is all-consuming, whether they are in their Manhattan penthouse or jet-setting to the south of France. For a while, it is even enough for Sam to ignore the darkness lurking just beneath Alexander’s perfect façade. When the mask finally comes off, she vows she will never be hurt by another man. It is the worst time for Finn Haggerty-Hart to re-enter her life.
Finn, whose family owns the horse ranch next to Bella Vino, could not be more different than Alexander…or Sam. Finn’s idea of couture is a clean pair of jeans, and he prefers the company of horses to people. At least, most people. Sam has known him all her life, but as they grow closer, she suddenly realizes that Finn’s rough-hewn exterior hides the heart of a romantic. Will Sam be able to overcome her hurt and bitterness to embrace another love?
Bella Vino is a remarkable and stunning piece of literature that compelled me with its many themes and exceptional writing courtesy of Rania Mallouk. Rania Mallouk is an author whose words have gripped, charmed, and thrilled me thanks to her outstanding talent at writing as well as her craft for writing a memorable story. The story of Bella Vino is a fantastic one that all readers will love…. Especially those that adore contemporary fiction with a female protagonist that is relatable as well as inspirational.

The story of Bella Vino is one that incorporates many themes, themes such as romance, new beginnings, and business which is all explored through the vessel of the story – Samantha Pierce. Samantha Pierce is an exceptional character whose narrative jumps right off the page and into the reader’s heart. I admit that I am utterly obsessed with Samantha, in fact, I adore her thanks to the many likable personality traits she possesses; qualities such as determination and perseverance despite unfortunate circumstances and despite judgments from those around her. Samantha can only be described as a strong woman, and this is explored through her business-minded tendencies. It was incredibly refreshing to witness a strong, female protagonist in a novel who does not need a man to feel content with life so already I have to applaud Rania Mallouk on her craft at the brilliant characterization of her character.
Not only is Rania Mallouk a genius at developing characters, but she is also a fantastic writer whose words will floor its readers with its beauty and charm. One quality I love about Bella Vino is the fact that it is such an easy to read, relaxing, fun read that will charm its reader for many hours. Sometimes it is nice for us women to read a lovely novel about love and passion as well as new beginnings so I thank Mallouk for fulfilling the wishes of so many women!
As Bella Vino is a truly stunning piece of literature, I have no choice but to award this stunning book Five Stars thanks to its incredible themes, compelling protagonist and wonderful storyline that will hook its readers for many hours on end!
