Expos­ing the Heiress is set part of the time in Los Ange­les, and part of the time at a small vine­yard in Sonoma, Cal­i­for­nia. I’ve always wanted to vaca­tion at a vine­yard, and so far, haven’t done it. But my fam­ily; my hus­band, our three adult sons, and their wives/girlfriends took a recent wine tast­ing trip together.

He wants to get to know the per­son she hides from every­one else. He wants to know why she’s hurt­ing so much.
