Here's my candidate for the week:

Just Desserts by Marquita Valentine
Publisher: Marquita Valentine (August 6, 2013)
Series: Holland Springs, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

What an earl wants isn’t always what he gets…

British Billionaire and modern day earl of Spenserfield, Sebastian Romanov only wants one thing in life: To reclaim his position as president of Romanov Industries. But first he has to clean up his reputation to convince the Board that he’s a dependable bloke who’s willing to put the company above everything, including his personal life. Finally given an excuse to sort things out with his estranged twin brother, he boards a jet to Holland Springs, North Carolina, never dreaming he’d find the solution to his all his problems in the town’s sexy caterer, Daisy Barnes.

She’s going to serve him his just desserts…

Daisy Barnes, owner of The Sweet Spot, has plans. Plans that don’t include posing as some arrogant—yet sexy as hell—earl’s fiancĂ©e. But when unexpected insurance bills –to the tune of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars—from her mother’s unsuccessful battle with cancer come due, she’s forced to accept his offer and his money. Only problem for Daisy—underneath that cold exterior is a man that can set her on fire with just one touch.

As Sebastian and Daisy spend more time together, they find it harder and harder to not give into temptation. Soon neither can tell where the fake romance ends and true love begins…

More Info:





First, I'm a die hard Marquita Valentine fan, and I cannot wait for Sebastian's book. Cannot! :)

Second, I know this cover may not be as sexy as some previous picks of mine, but look at that pose! It's sweet, yet still a little sexy, and I love the stubble on the hero's face..and the fact that the heroine is undoing his tie. The only thing better than a man in a suit is a man out of a suit, after all!

I have said it before, but I will say it again---try Marquita Valentine, I promise you will not regret it! :)

I love this one. Just looking at the cover makes me want to read the book.

KAMEBookReview said...

I think I need to read this series

The_Book_Queen said...

Yes, you really need to! :) The first novella and book 1 were freebies recently, not sure if they still are. If BN lets me lend them, I'd be more than happy to!

The_Book_Queen said...

:D And I trust Marquita, so I am sure this one will live up to my expectations. Psst--also, Sebastian is pierced. THERE. :D

Red Iza said...

You got me with the argument : Sebastien is pierced there lol !
Oh, and I love the stubble also, and the sweet pose ;)

Lover Of Romance said...

I really adore this cover. Its such a tender pose....its always good to have those.

The_Book_Queen said...

Hehe! I knew that would draw potential readers in!

The_Book_Queen said...

Oh yes--nothing wrong with some sweet poses that we can still lust over!

Wickedly Delicious said...

Great pick. Love covers like this that are sweet and sexy. I read Seduction of the Billionaire Playboy Actor (Holland Springs #.05), liked it but still have yet to read Twice Tempted #1. Got to get my butt in gear.
