Bitter Wine is a welcome
addition to a unique and sensual series by talented author
Theolyn Boese. Strong characters in an out of this world
tale with deep emotional and sexual issues pull readers
right into the plot. Although Bitter Wine is
the third story in this futuristic series the basic
storyline can be understood on it’s own but, to thoroughly
enjoy Bitter Wine start with the first story.
Bitter Wine gives us a chance to cheer for
Ruri who finally finds happiness.
