I have written two adult contemporary romances under the pen name Drew Greenfield. The third book of the trilogy is in preparation:
Sweeter Than Wine (first published in May 2018)
Nicole Durand takes a job as housekeeper-companion to Cathy, wife of Yves, a wealthy Bordeaux winegrower, to earn money for university. She isn’t looking for romance, but when she meets the Ravels’ son, Andy, she is irresistibly attracted to him. Should she give in, risking her future ambitions and his – or settle for friendship, and be the sister Andy never had? The past few years have not been easy for Nicole. She has struggled to come to terms with her father’s early death and with her mother Denise’s subsequent addictions, lies and bad choices in men. In spite of it all, she has come through lycée with top marks. Now, as she grows closer to Cathy and her feelings for Andy intensify, Nicole becomes caught up in her employers’ problems as well as her own – by Yves’ obsession with the business, his threats to stop funding Andy’s education, and by the Ravel family tragedy. Moreover, she is distrustful of Denise’s new partner, and afraid her younger siblings may suffer the way she did. With three years of study in a foreign country looming, these are all complications she doesn’t need.

Sweet Entanglement (first published 30 April 2021)
With only occasional weekends and holidays together, Nicole Durand and Andy Ravel are feeling the strain of their long-distance romance. But when Andy is offered a job at MIT, Nicole faces an impossible decision. Should she go to America with the man she loves, or spend the next few years in celibate spinsterhood? Andy also faces a dilemma. On his way home for Christmas, he has met vivacious ex-girlfriend, Margie Chapman. Margie works in New York and has a two-year-old son, Tommy. Though he loves Nicole, Andy has feelings for Margie too, which are not only reciprocated but complicated by a suspicion that Tommy might be his. For Nicole, abandoning her course for a financially insecure life in the USA would be rash, the alternative equally so, when her sensuous nature might lead her into the arms of attractive medic, Mike Prentice. Separated by three thousand miles of ocean, Nicole and Andy must each tread a path through this entanglement of love, friendship and career, without hurting the people they care about.
