Then its owner, the boy who stole her heart in high school, shows up on her doorstep and does his best to woo her with baked delights. She has no intention of falling for the pie-baking Casanova again, no matter how sweet his desserts or how hot the attraction between them.
Aidan Rourke’s uncle has promised him ownership of the family bakery if Aidan marries before his 34th birthday. When the only woman he ever truly loved—the one who got away—moves back to town, he pulls out all the stops to recapture her heart. He has only three weeks to convince her of his love and march her down the aisle before she discovers the truth about his uncle’s blackmail scheme.
Sugar and spice and everything...naughty
Calais Shepherd is content to run her coffee shop by day and rely on her own skills in the bedroom at night—until the owner of the new bakery down the street shows up in her office with samples. His desserts are divine, but his body is truly sinful.
Determined to put the past behind him and follow through on his dream, Kane Hardesty moves to a new town to open his cupcake shop. A little cross-promotion deal with the delectable latté-skinned barista seems like the perfect combination of business and pleasure, but her uncle’s merger suggestion sounds even better.
Unfortunately, the sparks between them aren’t the only fire in town. When Calais has to close her shop and move out of her smoke-damaged apartment, Kane offers her a partnership she can’t refuse. But a persistent arsonist and Kane’s past may put an end to their lucrative arrangement—and her.
A Little Appetizer

When she discovers her partner is the renowned barbecue master she crowned King of the Grill, she’s ready to take their association to a more personal level.
But Nash’s plan to boost his finances with one more cook-off leaves Lucie with a tough decision—step down from judging or brush off the man who always puts business first.
The Main Dish

Food critic Ginger Elcott has made a lot of enemies with her snarky and scathing reviews, leaving her scrambling to book a caterer for her spur-of-the-moment wedding. As her recurring bad luck would have it, the one man her fiancé wants her to hire is also the object of an annoying and unexpected attraction.
Dealing with bridezillas is part of the job for Mason Hughes, but his newest client takes argumentative and demanding to a new level. Surrendering to her request seems like the easiest solution, but a sizzling kiss sparks more than a passing sexual interest in her.
Circumstances change drastically when Ginger dumps her cheating groom and proposes much more than a single night of passion to her sexy caterer. Two contracts and a wedding later, the bedroom is hotter than the kitchen—until a malicious review of Mason’s Premier Catering threatens to roast their newly complicated relationship.
Dressing on the Side
2019 Stiletto Contest finalist
Sometimes undressed is best…
The creative dressings Sahara Whitney serves at The Oasis Diner and her long line of failed relationships are her local claim to fame. Such is the small-town life of a buxom, blue-eyed blonde—until a sexy businessman decides she needs rescuing from a creep with wandering hands. Her usual common sense deserts her in favor of a delicious assortment of bedtime treats with a man who seems to want more than a single night of dessert.
Trace Dennison doesn’t believe in coincidences. Instant sexual attraction, a common business interest, and an oopsie baby convince him he’s found the woman of his wildest dreams in Sahara Whitney, even if she has lingering doubts. A self-inflicted shotgun wedding offers the perfect recipe for happily-ever-after, but the honeymoon ends before it begins when Sahara suspects an ulterior motive—that their trail of clothing to the bedroom leads to Russian spies, a French revolution, and Caesar’s assassination.
