The Wayward Son - Yvonne Lindsay (HD #2141 - Feb 2012)

Series: Master Vintners (Book 1) 

Judd Wilson finally has his chance for revenge. He will dismantle his estranged father's cherished business empire and -- the icing on the cake -- steal the man's ravishing mistress. Certainly the sizzling attraction Judd feels for Anna Garrick will only make his vengeance sweeter.

But as fascination becomes insatiable desire, Judd begins to question his intent. He'd believed the worst of his father, and of Anna. Now, when long-buried family deceits are uncovered, Anna's fierce loyalty to his father forces Judd to rethink his plans -- because destroying the man who hurt him will mean losing Anna, too.... 

Good book.  Judd had good reason to be angry with his father, but his plans were a case of overkill.  Thanks to his mother's actions, he was also very cynical and didn't trust Anna at all.  As a matter of fact, he was sure that Anna was sleeping with his father, and intended to steal her away as part of his revenge.  Anna felt an immediate attraction to Judd, but had no intention of doing anything about it.  As she worked with him, she saw that he was very good at what he did, but always had the feeling that there was something else going on.  When things came to a head, Anna was hurt and broke off their personal relationship.  When Judd finally had a chance to talk to both his father and his mother, he realized that everything he had believed was wrong.  It was very satisfying to see Judd realize that there are two sides to a story, and that he had very nearly lost the most important thing in his life.
