From the author of the nationally bestselling St. Helena Vineyard series comes a sexy new book set in Sugar, Georgia...
"Marina Adair writes with heart and sizzling heat."
--Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author
She's sassy and sweet
The last thing Glory Mann wants is to become chairman of the Miss Peach Pageant in Sugar, Georgia. Spending months hearing nothing but the clinking of pearls and judgment? No thank you! But when Glory is forced to take the rap for a scandal she didn't commit, the judge sentences her to head the committee. Even worse, her co-chairman is rugged, ripped . . . and barely knows she's alive.
He's ready and willing
Single dad Cal McGraw can't take any more drama in his life. After a difficult divorce, his little girl became a boy-crazy teenager and his hands are full. The last thing he needs is to spend his down time with the town bad girl. Glory is pure trouble--tempting and tantalizing trouble. But he can't deny the strong chemistry between them-or how her touch turns him inside out. Now as squabbles threaten to blow up the contest and the town of Sugar itself, Cal must risk everything on the sexy wild card to get a second chance at love . . .

Marina Adair is a true visionary as to what romance novels are all about! Marina writes with deep purpose on the true essence of love and romance.
Her books are sexy, fabulously romantic, and FUNNY! Her ideas are unique and well researched, and her characters are REAL. I promise you will personally know someone with the same traits of her characters and laugh out loud!! I also love how I connect with and feel the emotion of her characters so deeply.
Marina’s voice and language is brilliantly well crafted . Marina articulates and builds the story with precision organization and it all unfolds so beautifully… She expresses her ideas clearly, and solves the “problem” with exceptional expertise that I anxiously await the outcome!
I love how her books are thought provoking, as well as emotionally inspiring to have us reflect on our own personal romantic lives.
Marina Adair is by far my FAVORITE author! When I complete a book, I anxiously anticipate her next book release!
Marina Adair delivers a sassy, fun, and sexy book filled with Southern charm.
After the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis ended, I thought that I wouldn’t be able to embrace another small town series. I loved the quirk and side characters so much that I was sure that I would not find another set of books that could make me come back again and again. Well, guess what? I was wrong and couldn’t be more happy about it. The town of Sugar is filled with quite the cast of characters, including…wait for it…The Pit Crew Mafia. I could explain, but why ruin the fun for you.
In Sugar on Top, we are introduced to Glory Mann and Cal McGraw. As all good small town romances start, these two have known each other for years. Glory is best friends with Cal’s brother, but never thought that he would ever be interested in her. Cal is a single parent trying to raise his daughter without the distraction of another woman in his life. He wants no more drama and thinks that, Glory is just that. However, after being thrown into co-chairing the Miss Peach Pageant and Sugar Pull by judges orders, the sparks start to fly.
From page one until the end to end, I loved every minute of this book. How can you not instantly fall in love with a book that starts out with grand theft auto of a tractor and throwing cow pies at the Sherif?!? Where the author came up with that scene, I don’t know, but it was brilliant and funny as hell. However, what I loved about the story Marina Adair gives us the most is the heart behind the characters and their actions. Glory’s fear of not being enough for someone, let alone the man she loves, and Cal’s fear in having yet another person walk out on him are real emotions. We all have fears like these and the reader can relate to where these two are coming from.
Throughout the pages, the author offers us a touch of Southern life in this book with a just the right about of antics, sweetness, and sexiness. All I have to say is that if you take a trip to Sugar, Georgia, you will not be disappointed.
