This is one of my favorite series of all time from Susan. I could read this series over and over, and in fact have done so. If you haven’t read this series and love stories about siblings you can’t go wrong here.
Cal Buchanan needs a top-flight chef to take over his failing Seattle restaurant, The Waterfront. He can afford to hire the best in town—the only problem is that the best happens to be his ex-wife, Penny Jackson.
Penny really needs this opportunity, but she doesn’t need the distraction of working with her ex. She’s sworn off romance—she’s even having a baby on her own. But before she knows it, the heat is on…and the attraction between her and Cal moves from a low simmer to a full boil!
The rest should be easy as pie, but a secret from Cal’s past could spoil everything. Maybe it’s true that too many cooks spoil the broth—or maybe two is enough to make it irresistible.
When ex-marine Walker Buchanan stops to help Elissa Towers change a tire, he tells himself it’s just the neighborly thing to do. And when Elissa finds herself baking him a thank-you pie, she’s just returning the favor . . . right?
Both of them have sworn off dating — Elissa’s determined to protect her little girl, and that means ditching her taste for dangerous men . . . especially former marines with dark secrets. Walker knows that he’s not cut out for hearth and home . . . his own crazy family made sure of that. But the sparks won’t stop flying between them.
Now the two are struggling to keep their relationship “just friends,” but with every kiss, their rules fly out the window.
A spiteful article about the former pitcher and current playboy questions his talent in the bedroom. And the newspaper’s just the first bad news. Reid’s grandmother Gloria’s broken hip means she needs constant care–but Reid hired Nurses 1 and 2 for their bedside manner with “him,” So for Number 3 he chooses Lori Johnson, the first candidate who seems immune to his brand of charm.
Lori’s never wasted her time with amoebas like Reid Buchanan. So why are her well-fortified defenses starting to crumble under the force of his sexy smile–and the kindness he shows her at every turn? There’s only one explanation for the feelings flaring between them–chemistry. Chemistry so hot, it’s sizzling!
After three romantic flame-outs in a year and a restaurant career going nowhere, Dani Buchanan needs a fresh start. She goes looking for her biological father, but never expects to find a senator running for president. As his long-lost ‘love child,’ Dani could seriously derail the election– something his handsome campaign manager Alex Canfield isn’t going to let happen. Dani isn’t about to let Alex run her life, no matter how tempting she finds him–and Alex isn’t going to allow Dani to melt his cynicism, no matter how close he has to get. The last thing either of them wants is love, especially with scandals brewing and family trouble on the way. But Dani and Alex are forced to trust each other, and when trust turns to passion, the potential for disaster is only a tabloid scandal away.
