The Periodic Table of Wine

The Periodic Table of Wine is a fun, concise, and appealingly geeky new concept to wine appreciation. The foundation of the book is a periodic table designed to give a visual overview of how different styles of the world’s wines relate to one another. Beginning with white wines in columns on the left, the table then highlights rosé in the middle, and then reds in the columns on the right. The rows, running from top to bottom, are organized by quality of flavor—fruit and spice, green and mineral, sweet, etc. If you like one “element” or wine type in the table, you can discover other examples situated around it you might also enjoy. The book also offers substantial descriptions of the 127 “elements,” or wines, each of which includes a full background and, frequently, food pairings. The book will be published with a companion volume, The Periodic Table of Cocktails.

Dark Wine at Midnight (A Hill Vampire Novel) (Volume 1)

Dr. Cerissa Patel’s a scientist, not a secret agent. But when the Lux order her to spy on the vampires she’s trying to help, she has no choice, not with the fate of humanity on the line. Her cover story seems easy enough: become a vampire’s envoy, and sign-up investors from among the secret vampire communities to finance her biotech research lab. At least, it looks easy until an assassination attempt leaves the Hill vampires suspicious of her arrival. They don’t want her—or her research lab—in their small town. Worse, she must ignore her growing attraction to Henry Bautista, a vampire winemaker with eyes the color of dark bourbon and just as intoxicating—who’s hiding his own deep secrets. He’s rich, dangerous, and as complex as the wines he makes, and he will do anything to stop her from hurting his town. With him watching her every move, she must uncover who’s behind the vampire movement to enslave mortals—before Henry discovers what’s hidden beneath her skin
