Last year over glasses of wine at the Romantic Times Conference, the idea of making an anthology about a magical cookbook was born. Some of my favorite fellow authors agreed to participate, Marie Sexton, who initially helped me come up with the idea, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes and RJ Scott (my favorite accomplice) all added their own touches. Each author brought their own ideas and writing style to the project, making it a fun and interesting concept. In April the print book will be available through Dreamspinner and so will our individual ebooks. Mine is the one below, please don’t hate me if you are now craving a plate of freshly baked cookies.
After his sister’s death, businessman Marshall Hunter gains custody of his niece. Unused to children, Marshall struggles to connect with her. In an effort to make her more comfortable in her new home, he hires professional muralist Pace Barlow to personalize her room.
Pace is intrigued by his tiny client, and even more interested in her handsome uncle, but Pace isn’t certain he’s ready for the commitment of an instant family.
When Marshall decides to move for the sake of his niece, will he be able to keep his relationship with his young artist, or will he have to give up love to become a good father for a lonely little girl?
The love baked into an old-fashioned recipe might bring the two men together–but some things take more than magical cookies to fix.
It’s called comfort food for a reason.
Not much is known about the cookbook, except that years ago, the mysterious Granny B collected a set of magical recipes and wrote them down. Over the years, each book has been modified, corrected, added to, and passed down through the generations to accumulate its own unique history. The secrets behind these very special recipes are about to find their way into new hands and new lives, just when they’re needed the most.
Food created out of love casts a spell all its own, but Granny B’s recipes add a little something extra. This curious cookbook holds not only delicious food, but also the secrets of love, trust, and healing, and it’s about to work its magic once again.
