Review by Library Journal Reviews

First published as ebooks (2011–13) that hit best sellers charts worldwide, Andre's eight-book series is being released for the first time in print by Mira: Harlequin beginning June 2013. This funny, touching, page-singeing Northern Californian-based series focuses on the eight Sullivan siblings and their singular and often erotic journeys to love. From the minute in The Look of Love that photographer Chase Sullivan rescues Chloe Peterson on a dark Napa Valley road during a driving rainstorm, he knows she's special. But Chloe is on the run from an abusive ex, and sex and relationships aren't on her agenda—unless Chase can change her mind and help her overcome her fears. A vulnerable, threatened heroine finds healing and love—and herself—with a hero you'd want for your own in this sensitive, explicitly sexy story that includes a bit of bondage. Betrayed by a manipulative boyfriend who sold their story, complete with candid photos, to the press, pop-star Nico decides to live up to her undeserved wild reputation and heads out in From This Moment On to a bar, with sex on her mind. Vintner Marcus Sullivan is in search of the same, but when he and Nicola connect—and neither one knows who the other is—the evening and their lives take a different turn. Instantaneous empathy and irresistible passion spark between a caring hero for whom family is everything and a heroine who needs to be true to herself. This steamy erotic romance is both tenderly compelling and hot. VERDICT Two sexy and scintillating titles from Andre, who divides her time between Sonoma, CA, and the Adirondacks. [Page 71].

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Readers will gladly set aside an afternoon to enjoy the long-awaited print release of Andre's fun, zippy first Sullivan family contemporary romance, which earned much acclaim as a self-published e-book in 2011. Renowned photographer Chase Sullivan sneaks away from his mother's birthday party a bit early to prepare for the next day's shoot at his brother's winery. On a rainy, curvy road, he encounters drenched Chloe Peterson, a battered woman whose car skidded into a ditch. After Chase pulls Chloe from a speeding motorcycle's path and gains her trust, she warily follows him to the safety of his brother's place. The lush, warm vineyards set the scene for romantic and intense encounters; since Chase goes out of his way to include Chloe in his work and family doings, their quickly developing connection never feels rushed. Andre's new fans will look forward to seeing Chase's seven siblings make matches in future installments. Agent: Steven Axelrod, the Axelrod Agency. (May 28) [Page ]. Copyright 2013 PWxyz LLC

Sometimes one look is all it takes

Chloe Peterson has vowed never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Her reasons are as vivid as the bruises on her cheek. So when her car skids off a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true.

As a successful international photographer, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women. He's satisfied with his life—until he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley.

With every loving look—and every sinfully sweet caress—the attraction between them sizzles, and Chloe can't help but wonder if she's met the man who may be the exception to her rule….
