The sweetest kiss finalToo tempting to resist 

Luscious, tantalizing, delectable…and that’s just Tiffani Chase-Lake’s cupcakes. The moment Broderick Hollingsworth sets eyes on the sexy baker herself, he’s truly intrigued. For the first time, the wary real estate developer is ready to open up to someone. Then he realizes that his next business deal is going to leave Tiffani and her cozy bakery high and dry…

Just as hardworking single mom Tiffani is falling for Broderick’s easy charm, she learns about the property deal that will destroy her business. Even her most decadent dessert can’t eclipse the bitter taste of betrayal. Tiffani’s livelihood and her independence are on the line. Walking away from their sensual chemistry won’t be easy—but is trusting him a recipe for heartache?


(Background info: Tiffani has just informed Broderick about her marriage to her late husband. KJ is her son for those who haven’t read the previous books.)

Broderick washed his hands over his face. “I’m sorry the bastard’s dead because of KJ, but I’m glad you’re not in hell anymore. I’m sure your next husband won’t be like that.”

Tiffani shook her head vigorously. “There won’t be a next husband. I’m never getting married again.”

“I don’t blame you one bit, but what about a steady boyfriend?” He rested his hand on his chin.

“Um… I’m kind of open to that or a companion that I can hang out with and go to dinner and events. Perhaps travel, but I wouldn’t call him my boyfriend. That’s so high school. I’d just want to be.”

“Be what?” he asked as his forehead indented.

She laughed. It was the first time she’d spoken her idea out loud. “I know it sounds weird. But I want to just be in the moment, not in a relationship where I can’t make my own decisions and feel as though I’m suffocating. I refuse to be treated the way Keith treated me ever again. Broderick, there were times when I looked in the mirror and I didn’t know who was staring back. I lost my confidence, my voice and my strength during those six years. I lost me. I can’t let another man control and degrade me. I have my son to consider, my peace of mind and my sanity.”

“So this be-in-the-moment relationship? Would it be with more than one dude?”

“Oh no. Definitely no.”

“Would this be an intimate relationship, as well?”

She noted the arrogant rise of his curious smile. “Yes, I would hope so and he’d have to be really great in bed.”

“I see.” He sipped his scotch and studied her with dark, amorous eyes. “Anything else?”

“He’d have to be someone I can confide in and trust. Not someone who would want to know my finances or try to control my life. At the end of the day, I make my own decisions.”

“Go ’head, Janet, or Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty,” he joked. “You call your own shots, beautiful.”

She giggled. “You’re hilarious. I love when you call me beautiful.”

“That’s because you are. Inside and out.”

Truth, seduction and lust were all laced into his words and his stare. She bit her bottom lip and ran her hand slowly along her bare neck, down to her collarbone and across the top of her cleavage as a slight mist of sweat formed on her skin. Her pulse sped up as he licked his bottom lip LL Cool J style, and she realized what she had just done. She silently hoped Broderick would replace her hand with his tongue.

He slid off the desk and snatched her out of the chair by her waist. His lips hesitated over hers as he stared into her eyes and beyond. Tiffani could taste the scent of his scotch and wanted to savor more. Her body quivered in his commanding embrace as raw pleasure journeyed throughout her veins.

* * *

When he lowered his lips an extra half inch to hers, it felt like their first kiss all over again. Broderick explored her appealing mouth slowly. He wanted to become familiar with every crevice of it just in case a while passed before she let him near her again. However, the thought of that caused an intense churn in his stomach, and he delved deeper so she would always crave for him to kiss and caress her. She was radiant, and the moans erupting from her mouth were driving him insane. Pivoting them, he placed her on the desk and gazed at her as he slowly pulled the hem of her skirt up her legs until it reached mid-thigh. Not once did she flinch, blink or protest. Instead, a sinful smile emerged, and she wrapped her long legs around his waist.

“Take off your coat,” she whispered against his lips.

Wasting no time, he followed her demand and flung it to the floor.

Nibbling her bottom lip, he slid a hand on her lacy panties. “Now you have to take off something.” He continued rubbing her in a circular fashion as her breathing became slightly unhinged, but she still didn’t appear unruffled. Instead, she was quite composed, and he was determined to change that soon.

“What do you want me to take off?” Running her hands up his face she kissed him slow and deep, turning her tongue hard around his.

“Everything,” he growled in her mouth.

“Just one item. I’ll even let you pick.”

  4. I have read romance novels every since I found Harlequin novels and Barbara Cartland at the library for free as a young teenager! I took tons of them home and read through the night. I was hooked on the HEA. I also loved how I could visit many different locations through the eyes of the authors. I eventually moved on from Barbara Cartland to more realistic modern day themes.

    All in all I like being immersed and engaged in the story. I love imaging myself in situations. I love watching the love dance unfold to the HEA. That’s the fun part for me.

    Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂
