Sweet Temptation

This is it! The one I have been waiting for.  Unrivaled has Lucy who's father started up a candy factory, teaching and tempting her as she has grown up.  Now she is back from Europe having tried some of the best confections around and ready to jump in to help her family business.  But...(we always know there is a but in there) her dad is home quite ill and it looks like the rival company in town is going to run them right out of town.  Lucy is determined, but so is Charlie....

I love candy.  I love to read too.  So of course I opened up a box of bon bons and jumped right into this turn of the century story line.  I ate up the fashion, etiquette and of course the romance that came out like sweet honey pulled taffy.  Siri Mitchell did a great job of keeping me interested while teasing my sweet tooth.  

Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe's best confections, she's sure she'll come up with a recipe that will save her father's struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize recipe, has now hired a promotions manager-a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy's skin.
Charlie Clarke's new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he's never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She's making his work life miserable...and making herself impossible for him to forget.
Siri Mitchell is the author of nearly a dozen novels, among them the critically acclaimed Christy Award finalists "Chateau of Echoes" and "The Cubicle Next Door". A graduate of the University of Washington with a degree in business, she has worked in many different levels of government. As military spouse, she has lived in places as varied as Tokyo and Paris. Siri currently lives in the DC-metro area.
