Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe’s best confections, she’s sure she’ll come up with a recipe that will save her father’s struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize recipe, has now hired a promotions manager-a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy’s skin.

Charlie Clarke’s new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he’s never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She’s making his work life miserable…and making herself impossible for him to forget.


What a sweet life! Or maybe not when your rival confectionary is determined to put you out of business.

It’s even worse when Lucy Kendall starts falling in love with the enemy who has become totally smitten with her. Maybe they could start working together instead of against each other.

Nope. Won’t work. There’s a problem with that. Charlie’s father swindled Lucy’s father out of a one-of-a-kind candy recipe as well as his first shop.

Charlie’s father is determined to run Mr. Kendall out of business again. If he does, Charlie loses. If he doesn’t, Charlie still loses, because of the bitterness Lucy and her father have over the stolen recipe.

Is it possible for Charlie and Lucy to come up with a win-win solution?

There are some books I just don’t want to end. This was one of them.
