It's not easy to watch your weight when you're starting your own bakery. And since Leah Martin is still reeling after her ex dumped her, an eclair fresh from the oven makes the night seem less lonely.
When Sam meets Leah in the bar one night, he's tongue-tied and leaves her with the mistaken impression that he's not interested because she's not thin enough. But when he finds himself helping Leah deliver a wedding cake to her ex-boyfriend's wedding, he comes to her rescue after a pushy woman insults Leah about her dating prospects and her weight, by proclaiming he's her fiance. Leah is furious. Because that pushy woman is her mom and now her family can't wait for the wedding.
So Sam and Leah make a deal -- Leah will bake his favorites and he will make her parents hate him. Then the wedding will be off. But as Sam starts to fall for Leah, and Leah for Sam, they begin to realize that this fake love affair might just be the real thing
Alison Bliss grew up in Small Town, Texas, but currently resides in the Midwest with her husband and two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it's no wonder she writes "girl books." She believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it's obviously meant to be. Alison pens the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, "Romance...with a sense of humor."
