When Mark Bracelyn lumbers into Chelsea Singer´s cupcake shop with an axe, she´s poised to hit the panic button. But he fixes her door, praises her buttercream, and sends her skittish heart pounding like a hammer on a hollow log, so he can´t be all that scary. Chelsea´s sure there´s a gooey marshmallow center under Mark´s tough outer shell, though admittedly she´s been wrong before. Mark may look like a grungy lumberjack, but he´s also the wealthy part-owner of Ponderosa Luxury Ranch Resort. The lone Bracelyn heir to avoid a childhood of fancy boarding schools, he stays hidden behind the scruffy beard and battered truck. But something else separates Mark from his siblings, and keeping his guard up means keeping his secret-and his family. When someone threatens Chelsea and her daughter, Mark becomes their personal protector. When he´s not watching her back, he´s watching the rest of Chelsea´s body and warning himself not to touch. With danger mounting, they bond over phallic cupcakes and bizarre bunny behavior, while Mark battles his surging attraction. Can a sweet-toothed mountain man and a cautious single mom escape their histories, or will their hearts land on the chopping block?
