No Sweeter Match

A Harbor Falls Romance, Book 13
Sweet Hart Inn

When master chocolate taster, Scott Matthews, escapes to Harbor Falls to visit his brother and sister-in-law, Brad and Suzie Hart Matthews, he has only one request—no talk about work, and that includes any discussion of chocolate. He knows Suzie is a celebrity chef and warns them away from any fanfare, or discussion of his professional work with the Italian-based, world-renowned chocolate company, Bianchi Chocolates. All he wants is an uneventful few weeks to get away from chaos and relax.

What Jillian Bass wants is to make a success of her new business in Harbor Falls. This Manhattan transplant really wants to make it big in the small southern town. Forget New York, she is starting over small with her chocolate shop, Bittersweets, and setting out to impress the locals. Start small, think big, is her motto. What she doesn’t share is that chocolate runs in her veins, or that she has recently inherited her grandmother’s famous chocolate business—Chocolates by Jeaneva. This time she is doing things on her own terms, without help or influence from family. Bittersweets is her baby and hers alone. It’s time to prove herself.

All is fine until Jillian smacks straight into Scott outside of her shop, and he takes a whiff of her Belgian truffle… What follows is a flurry of spontaneous sexy encounters, a scandal, a couple of untruths, and a carefully orchestrated reunion by Suzie Hart guaranteed to result in no sweeter match than the one between Scott and Jillian.

Whether love comes with chocolate truffles, syrups, creams, or covered in sprinkles, this humorous and quirky story of dueling chocolatiers might leave you craving chocolate (and more!), all the while begging the question, “Is there anything better than chocolate?”

Chase My Heart

A Harbor Falls Romance, Book 11 
Sweet Hart Inn

Suzie Hart is back in Harbor Falls after her television debut in New York. She and her cousin, Sydney, have a number of catering gigs lined up. She’d love to fix Sydney up with a date but when this new guy starts hanging around the bakery, her radar goes up. This guy is definitely not on Suzie’s matchmaking list. Sydney, however, has other ideas.

High tea or sweet tea? As long as there are scones it doesn’t matter. In fact, Suzie’s cousin Sydney Hart, owner of Sydney’s Sugar High Bakery, makes the best damn scones east of the Mississippi and south of the Mason Dixon, and there is an article in Southern’s Best magazine to prove it.

All is well and life is good until a mysterious stranger comes to town, stalking Sydney’s scones, and attempting to romance her out of her famous recipe.

Stone Kellerman isn’t above romancing the scone recipe out of Ms. Sydney Hart. Although he admits he finds the woman attractive, and she appeals to him on a certain level, her scone recipe is what he is after. Her Double Orange Scone of Sinful Decadent Desire is among the best he has ever tasted. No wonder she stole the Best Scones of the South title from him. Stone’s Scones of Atlanta had heralded that title for several years. But hanging around her bakery shifts his priority from recipe to the baker. He is intrigued with the lovely pastry chef and finds himself tangled in his own plot to finagle her winning recipe from her.

Will Stone romance Sydney out of more than her scone recipe? Read Chase My Heart and laugh your way through this quirky tale of pastries and falling in love.
