REAL MEN EAT CUPCAKES! Annie McPherson has had it with all the blind dates her grandmother and auntie set her up with. She just wants to run the Sweet Indulgence her cupcake bakery, even if it means she remains single for the rest of her life. Jack is sent on a mission to pick up the cupcakes for his nieces birthday party, not a mission to fall head over heels for another, especially after a gut-wrenching break up he'd just been through. But when you're sweet as the cupcakes you bake and serve people notice, and Annie had Jacks complete attention.
Annie's folks are gone so it's up to Grandma Lilly and Auntie Patty to ensure a suitable man takes Annie's heart. But none of the guys meet her needs. That's until Jack Powell enters her bakery and her life. Can Grandma Lilly and Auntie Patty accept Jack as Annie's choice or will they continue to be the meddling twosome? I love these two characters and so do the many readers I've heard from.
My idea for this series evolved from my love for South Carolina. Having lived there for several years, you could say a little sweetness rubbed off on me! So I decided to make this series about family, love and honor. And what better city portrays that than Charleston? We have a meddling Grandmother and Auntie, a wild child of a sister, and of course the story wouldn't be complete without Annie and Jack. This is the beginning when Annie first meets Jack. They immediately have a cute little chemistry going. Even though she's not really looking and he's just been through a break-up so he's really not looking, they sort of hit it off without even realizing it.
