(A Christmas Elf Romance)
What if you risked losing your baking legacy by cooking up a love truly special?
Florian MacMillian needs a final job to complete his baking resume—preferably a job where he’s unlikely to blow things up with his unruly magic—before returning to the North Pole and taking his rightful place as Master Baker to all the elves.
Kate Delore desperately needs help in her fast-growing cupcake business. Florian is a perfect fit, so she brings him on as baker. Florian is happily up to his elbows in batter, and Kate’s business is booming.
But when things heat up between them, Florian wonders if he should risk his legacy to cook up something truly special.
Another Magical Tale of Romance and Adventure by Beth Barany
“I truly enjoyed it. I am a sucker for anything Christmas and Santa related which probably didn’t hurt. … Overall the story was light, charming and just right for a pleasant escape from the daily grind, kind of like a good dessert (yes, I love my sweets). I have to say this was my favorite of your romances I’ve read thus far…” — Beth Chapmon (Book Reviewer)
“I really enjoyed this story, it left me with a smile. It made me laugh, smile and feel good! Loved the Santa twist… totally unexpected! A good addition to the Christmas collection!” — Dodie Coe (Writer + Avid Reader)
“Did I feel attached to the characters? Definitely. Kate was cute, smart, and ambitious, cutting herself off and leaving me rooting for her to open up. Florian was mysterious, dark, and handsome and I obviously wanted more about him. That might just be me, though.” — Alex King, A New Reader to Romance

A truly sweet Christmas romance!
What could be better than Santa and his elves at Christmas! Well, a very sexy elf who wants to become a Master Baker mixed with a tenacious businesswoman and her brand new cupcake business is certainly up there! Florian and Kate’s story is another great addition to the Touchstone series. I’ve enjoyed every story, and A Cupcake Christmas is as delightful as the rest. Kate and Florian are wonderful and I was rooting for them the whole way. What a marvelous way to spend Christmas, reading with a cup of tea and a nice fire. Now I’m going to have to add cupcakes to that as well. In addition to the romance, I loved reading about Kate’s tenacity in building her business, especially all the different cupcakes, which were magical themselves. I’ve never thought of savory cupcakes before but this story was an inspiration! I look forward to the next in the series.
A Great Christmas Story
I really enjoy this book. The book is a magical and bright. This is a great story to read on your Christmas Holiday and perfect to read by the fire. After reading the book I wanted to eat cupcakes and savory cupcakes as well. What a perfect romance book. If you are someone that loves elves and love at first site this is a great edition to your Christmas reading collection.
