Synopsis

There is only one thing in life that professional pastry Chef Pricilla Westcott values more than baking and wine, and that’s honesty. A quality she soon learns that her marriage lacks when her husband runs off with their next door neighbor.

Divorced and alone, Priscilla is determined to make changes in her life. She decides to approach her new goals like one of her beloved recipes. Surely with a little time, a dash of patience, and measured planning she can whip herself—and her life—back into shape.

However, when a new—and utterly delicious—neighbor takes up residence in the house that ruined her marriage, Priscilla worries that her careful world will fold faster than a deflated soufflé.

Trent Walker knows what he wants and his sweet, sassy neighbor is at the top of the list. He’s certain that the chemistry between them would be explosive, but Priscilla fears that an affair with him, however hot, could be a recipe for disaster.

Excerpt

Before we go any further, I would like to introduce a few things about me. There are some things in life that I hold dear and close to my heart. I’m talkin’ things that run deep in my soul. Those mantras I repeat on a daily basis. These are the things that make the world right, so don’t mess with them. First on that list is sugar. I am a professional pastry chef and sugar is my world. My domain. It is what I’ve always known and if you want the truth, I am damn good at what I do. If you stopped and took a good look around my kitchen, I’m pretty sure you’d figure it out. My kitchen gives Martha Stewart a woman-boner.

Somewhere on that list used to be honesty. Up until about three months ago, honesty was a huge factor. You couldn’t be trusted if you couldn’t be honest. And Elvis said it best when he said, “When things go wrong, don’t go with them.” Therefore, that one is currently shattered and in the hot-mess pile. I’m in the process of scraping honesty off my list with a pitchfork, and gasoline. Possibly artillery.

Blah, moving on.

Number two on that list is wine, so whoever is at that door is going to die. It’s settled. I have had a decent life, but the remainder of it is going to be spent behind bars. I’ve been dealt some shitty cards lately, but to mess with my vino is crossing the line.
