STORY: One taste will bring him back for more . . .
A Tempting Diversion
Things have always fallen into place for Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh. His good looks, abundance of charm, and the small matter of being heir to a marquisate make him quite the catch. So when a delectable young woman wants nothing to do with him, he can’t help but seize the irresistible challenge.
An Unlikely Courtship
Jane Bunting knows all about responsibility—she has managed to support herself and her brother with their bakery—but she knows nothing of excitement or passion. When dashing Lord Raleigh crosses the threshold of her shop, she has no idea of the potential danger to her reputation . . . or to her heart.
An Impossible Match
Neither imagined things would go so far—until the night their worlds collide, irrevocably changing both their lives. But when duty calls for Richard, and with everything Jane has worked for suddenly at stake, will their taste for scandal be their downfall?
REVIEW: Jane Bunting runs a bakery with the help of her younger brother. Her deceased parents were bakers and she is carrying on the family tradition. Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh, enters her bakery shop one day when he heard her scream and a man advanced toward her. Thinking she was being attacked, he ran in and wrestled the man to the floor.
Turns out, it was her cousin and she was just excited to see him. Having broken some display cases and other things, Richard feels bad and tries to pay for the damage. Jane refuses. Determined to reimburse her, Richard and his sister, Lady Beatrice, come to Jane and ask for baking lessons.
In return, he will pay her enough money to repair the damage to her shop. Lessons ensue and they all become better acquainted. Jane and Beatrice become good friends while Jane and Richard are realizing their attraction to one another. Coming from different worlds, how can their love be accepted by the ton?
I truly enjoyed this novel and throught that the author wrote the story with lots of humor and certainly showed her own knowledge of baking which made it even more interesting. A wonderful book with a lovely ending.
