-- A USA TODAY best-seller --
Brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson is officially declaring war against her hot, maddening new menace of a neighbor--and his shop. How the man manages to provoke her so much is beyond her. But he does, and really, she's just picking up the gauntlet he tosses her way.
The terms of their little throwdown? Her business versus his in the arena of romance.
And the stakes? Very likely, her heart.
Chocolatier and town newcomer Luke Bradford loves his shop's new home. Partly because he couldn't ask for a better fresh start for both his professional and personal life, and partly (okay, mostly) because he gets to lock horns with the feisty beer-brewing beauty next door, and effectively push all her buttons on a fairly regular basis.
To be fair, in his defense--
Just kidding. He has no defense.
As far as the meddling matchmakers in this quirky little town are concerned, this is going to be their most unlikely (and interesting) pairing yet...
"Violet Duke always writes such compelling, delightful characters who manage to pull you in and make you feel a part of their lives." -- #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy
♥ AUTHOR NOTE ♥
Be forewarned, this slow-burn romcom is definitely sweeter (and longer) than my other books (but there is still some on-page steam, as well as a few curse words--no f-bombs though, per usual). A book about a brewmaster and chocolatier battling over Valentine's Day supremacy? Yep, it was a given I was going to go all-out on the feel-good romance for this one. :) So if you're in the mood for a light and fun love story (with some of my token laugh-and-cry Violet Duke-ness, of course) between two stubbornly romantic characters who work hard for their happily ever after, this is the book for you! xoxo ♥ V
