After tragedy struck, Sean Amory left his job as a record executive in L.A. to go back to his roots. He’s come home to River Hill to work in his family’s bakery while he decides what to do with his life. Somehow, the warm ovens and fresh dough are soothing to his raw edges—and the gorgeous woman he sees jogging past every morning as he opens up the shop has another effect entirely.
Jessica Casillas-Moore’s former life as a beauty queen led to her current gig as a lifestyle consultant for a dozen local TV stations, but it also means she hasn’t eaten carbs since she was fourteen. But smelling them won’t ruin her career, so she makes a point to route her morning run past The Breadery, River Hill’s most delicious site. When she meets the handsome baker, sparks fly … and cupcakes get frosted.
Opposites really do attract, and it turns out that Jess and Sean just might be made for each other. But when his past rears its ugly head and her future comes calling, they’ll have to figure out how much they’re ready to give in order to get what they most want.

Welcome back to River Hill! The second in the contemporary romance series I’ve co-written with my BFF Rebecca Norinne is available today, and I LOVE it. I hope you do, too. Come back to the adorable wine country town of River Hill with us, where the food is fabulous and the people are sexy! In THE DISTILLER’S DARLING, you’ll find out what happened to Noah’s date to the gala after he left her to go fall in love with Angelica in THE VINTNER’S VIXEN! Naomi Klein is a self-assured, fearless artist who doesn’t take any nonsense from anyone – but her family is the one exhausting, beloved thorn in her side. When she meets Iain Brennan, new in town and working hard to sell his family’s new whiskey, they’re both ready for a fling. But when it turns into something more, everyone gets involved!

Oh, hi, blog. It’s been a while. I owe you some recipes and a day in the life post that’s a month overdue. Sorry about that.
In the meantime, let’s talk about writing! I went to a blurb/back cover copy workshop with the Maryland Romance Writers last week, and it was fabulous. I struggled mightily with a blurb for the book I’m actually working on – the historical fantasy I submitted to a contest a few months ago. It needs to get done! With help, I managed to finally come up with something decent (more on that another time) – but then I was inevitably distracted.
On the back burner, I have a contemporary romance series fizzling around in my brain. The first one is based on one of my favorite historical romance plots – the marriage of convenience. I moved it to the only place I could think of that was a modern equivalent to duke-heavy Victorian London: celebrity-heavy Hollywood, of course.
The entire series is Hollywood-based, and on the way home from the workshop, I came up with great blurbs for THREE of the books in it. None of which I’m supposed to be writing right now.
And then today, in the shower, a scene with the heroine of book four showed up in my head. I gave in and wrote it down, because I really like her. But after this, I swear, it’s back to the dukes.
