Description-


  • Every woman on Key West is swooning over newcomer Chase Buchanan. All except bakery owner Nikita Coles. Bad enough that he's bought the building next door, blocking Nikita's plans to expand her business. Worse, he works for a big oil company. She can't trust the man or his motivations, even if he does look good enough to eat....

    Convincing Nikita to sell her property will be a challenge, but Chase is ready for it. The Coles family has a rich history on Key West, but the Buchanans never give up on what they want. Seduction begins as a business strategy, and quickly becomes the most pleasurable experience of Chase's life. Yet winning the battle of wills could mean losing the love he never expected to find....

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    "Chef."

    Nikita Coles looked up as Russ, the waiter, paused briefly before he exited the kitchen. She spared a quick glance at his tray of delectable delights. Her dark brown eyes sparkled with pride as she examined the succulent bite-size morsels. Perfect. She nodded her approval and he hurried out the kitchen door to the dining room and waiting guests. She spared a moment to look around. Today had been crazy, but she'd actually done it. Two events in one evening and to her credit both had been perfectly planned and executed.

    Because of her early hours at the cafe, she didn't usually take weekday catering jobs, let alone two in one evening. But this last one was special. It was at her older brother Mikhail's home and he had asked her to do this as a favor. While he was overseas, he'd rented his home out to a business associate and asked her to cater this event in his absence. She agreed. So after setting up, cooking and supervising the first event, she hurried here to the second job of the evening.

    The kitchen hummed with the harmony of a wellorchestrated symphony. Every instrument fit perfectly and everyone knew their job and performed it expertly. Leroy, the sous chef, prepped and readied the food, she cooked and prepared the plates and Russ served the guests. What probably looked like disheveled confusion was actually perfectly planned and controlled chaos, which would result in two successful events. She had pulled together an exceptional team and knew that when she left the first job, everything would continue exactly the same in her absence.

    But the long hours were starting to take their toll on her. It was getting late and she was exhausted and wanted to go home. She looked at her watch, then went back to wrapping dessert packages. All she needed now was for this job to be done.

    "I'm here."

    Nikita glanced up a brief second upon hearing her friend and business manager, Darcy Richardson's, voice as she hurried into the kitchen. "Hey, what are you doing here?" she tossed over her shoulder without turning around completely.

    "I stopped by to see if you needed any last-minute help."

    "The only thing I need is for them to leave," Nikita said, nodding toward the dining-room door. "They've been huddled talking all night."

    "Well, they'd better hurry up. It's starting to rain and it looks like it's gonna get really bad out there. The wind's picking up and you know what that means--we're in for a crazy, stormy night. I know they say it's just the tail end of a tropical storm, but it sure feels like a whole lot more to me."

    "I just have to finish wrapping these take-home desserts. We'll be out of here long before it starts getting really bad," Nikita assured her as she continued wrapping desserts and placing them on the tray.

    "Good," Darcy said, walking to the counter to see what Nikita was doing. "You know how the roads around here flood in just an inch of rain. And don't even get me started on the falling trees."

    "Yeah, I know," Nikita said, then finally glanced up again. "Whoa, check you out. You look great. I know you didn't have that on earlier at the Bentleys'. Where are you going tonight?"

    "I had to change into something more appropriate. I have a date later this evening. You like?" She struck a classic fashion pose. Leroy, the sous chef, whistled and in pure vanity mode, Darcy smiled from ear to ear. "Thank you, darling," she said with her throaty Southern drawl that would've put Scarlett O'Hara to shame. She turned to a large shiny pan sitting on the...
