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?
A 2019 RITA Award finalist! Bree Bracelyn doesn´t date cops. It´s a personal rule that quavers when Austin Dugan flashes his baby blues—and his badge—at Ponderosa Resort´s grand opening. Bree´s the family fixer, running the resort´s PR and her siblings´ lives with cheerful efficiency. But one thing in Bree´s past can´t ever be fixed, which is why she´s staying the hell away from Officer Hottie. Austin´s heart tacks up a wanted poster with Bree´s name the instant he lays eyes on her. Okay, the no-cops rule is an obstacle, but not impossible for a guy ambitious enough to be a shoo-in as the next police chief. Besides, he knows Bree´s into him, whether they´re flirting over weird flatware or getting frisky in the front seat of his vintage Volvo. As Bree and Austin bond over cupcakes and hot springs hookups, Bree knows it´s a matter of time before the skeletons in her closet topple into a messy heap on Austin´s squeaky-clean life. Is there hope for a happy ending, or will their love end up DOA?
