Every time someone tells me how much they love my baking show, it shocks me. It's as if I can't quite remember that all the hours of work I put in filming segments and writing cookbooks is actually meant to be seen by the public.
The first season of my show was a hit, and I love what I do, so when my agent called to tell me about a new show the network wanted me to audition for, I was surprised. I'm almost twenty-one, not a teenager anymore, and as it turns out, she thinks my girl-next-door image needs to grow up a little.
When I find out that I'm auditioning to co-host with the sexy British celebrity chef I grew up crushing on, I nearly lose it.
Lucas has had a lot of trouble the past couple of years. A nasty divorce. Binge-drinking. Partying. We won't even talk about those pics of his impressive package that were splashed all over the tabloids.
I'm supposed to be the solution to all Lucas' problems. Meeting him, though, is just the start of mine.
When we set off on a European filming tour, sparks fly.
Lucas is definitely bringing the heat.
I just hope I don't get burned.
Sweet Promise is the first standalone romance in the Promise Series - the World of the Grahams.
Sweet, funny, sexy, and satisfying.
After her fiance walks out just weeks before their wedding, Brie isn't ready for another relationship. After her friends convince her that what's good for the goose is good for the gander, she decides to give something more casual a try. When the good-looking guy she has flirted with for years keeps popping up, she's tempted. She may not be ready for dating, but Max is happy to offer her an alternative.
Finding out your fiance is dating someone else is a real downer. What can I say? I picked the wrong guy. Gave him the wrong finger. Taking a break from dating seems like the logical choice.
There are some great things about being single. Going without... you know, s-e-x... isn't one of them. My friends are trying to convince me that there's an app for that, but it's not working out so well. There is this one guy I've always sort of flirted with, though. For the first time since I've known him, we're single at the same time. I'm so not ready to jump into another relationship, but maybe it's time to find out if this friends-with-benefits thing can really work.
I have crushed on Brie ever since I first met her, but the timing was never right. Now, though, she's single and so am I. Just my luck, she's got me firmly planted in the friend zone.
When I find out she's looking for something strictly physical, of course, I offer my services—I mean, what are friends for, after all? The problem is, the more time I spend with her, the more convinced I am that she's perfect for me. I'm probably the only guy in history to ruin a no-strings-attached deal by falling for the girl.
Now, I've got to try to make her see I'm not like her jerk of an ex. If she'll give us a chance, I know we could be great together. She's under my skin, and if she walks away, she takes my heart with her.
They say you can't go home again. If only that were true.
Growing up, I'd been in love with my best friend as long as I could remember. Handsome, smart, and kind, that country boy was always there for me. Still, I never let him know how I felt until one summer when I was home from college, and my whole world fell apart.
When we got together, it was what we had both been waiting for our whole lives. It was passionate. It was perfect. Too bad it didn't last.
With each passing year and every visit home, I became more convinced I could successfully avoid him for the rest of my life.
Fate had other plans.
The handsome boy I loved has grown into an insanely gorgeous man... one that's standing in front of me asking for answers and another chance.
Full of determination, his will is a force to be reckoned with, and I don't know if my weak heart is up to the task.
He is everything I've ever wanted.
The problem is, if I let him in back into my life, I'll have to tell him a secret I've kept hidden for years... a secret that will break his heart.
