THE CHOCOLATE TOUCH is now available! This is Book #8 in the twelve book Love at the Chocolate Shop series. The other authors in the series are C.J. Carmichael, Debra Salonen, Roxanne Snopek, Steena Holmes, and Marin Thomas. It's my third and final installment in the series after also writing Book #2 and Book #5!

This sweet romance features a former air force captain, who is the older brother of the heroines from the two earlier books I wrote in the series. Don't worry if you haven't read those books. The story is still stand-alone. Some secondary characters just reappear.

About the book…

Chocolate expert Chantelle Cummings arrives in Marietta, Montana with two goals—sign copies of her new book and research a quaint local chocolate shop. When she meets a gorgeous guy passing out chocolate samples, her visit turns sweeter than she ever imagined. The man melts her heart, but her dream of working in France with her family makes her hesitant to pursue a romance.

Former Air Force captain York Parker has one month before embarking upon a consulting career. He never expected to be selling chocolates, but he’s happy to help his sister and her boss. He also likes spending time with sassy, pretty Chantelle. His new coworker may have the chocolate touch, but he’d rather taste her decadent kisses… until he learns the real reason she’s in town.

Will the truth harden his heart, or will love pave the way to a sweet future?
