Today I’m sharing a snippet from my sweet contemporary HOLLYWOOD DREAMS AND BUTTERCREAM. It will release on July 11th from Desert Breeze Publishing.
Set-up: After a rocky start, Cole and Gwynn have declared a tentative truce. They’re watching a movie in the park when Cole decides to kiss her.
He leaned into Gwynn, and as she turned her head toward him, he brought his lips to hers. They were every bit as soft and plush as he’d thought. A faint taste of the sweet cream soda clung to her mouth as well as a hint of the sea salt she’d put on the popcorn — and it was easily one of the most satisfying kisses he’d ever experienced. Heat rode his spine. Panic filled his chest. Warning bells went off in his head.
Don’t get involved his conscious screamed. She’ll only hurt you in the end.
Here’s the blurb:
Sometimes the sweetest things in life don’t have anything to do with dessert.
Gwynn Flannigan wants respect from her father and freedom from her big, loud family. The icing on her cake would be to win a decorating competition hosted by her favorite food magazine writer. Cole Marshall’s one outlet from the stress of business life is writing his Cooking in the Buff feature. Who cares if he never has time for fun?
The answer for them both lies in the deep freeze at Sweet Endings, the struggling ice cream shop Gwynn manages and the one property Cole needs to secure a big promotion. He’s stuck in Madrigal, Indiana to unravel a knot of family drama that drives him crazy.
Things heat between Gwynn and Cole on the competition floor when Cole’s alter ego is revealed. Cake and accusations fly while dreams and goals are left crumbling. In order to balance family, business, and love, Gwynn and Cole will need to work together and become partners—in more ways than one.
