Dulcie Carter has been running her family’s homemade sweet shop, Candy Land Confections, on her own since her mom passed away. But business is slow and rent is high, so Dulcie knows if she wants to keep her mom’s dream alive, she’ll need a miracle. Winning the annual Assembly of Chocolatiers competition will change everything, if only she can overcome her fears and bring herself to create something new for the first time in a long time.

Then she meets Nick, a molten-hot guy with a sexy smirk and chocolate brown eyes. The attraction is stronger than any sugar rush—until she discovers he’s set to inherit his family’s big-box candy shop in town, which is her strongest competitor for first prize. Nick’s got his own reasons for needing the win, but then being around Dulcie is proving addictive.

As the competition heats up, so do the sparks between them. Can they keep their sights on winning, when love might be the sweetest prize of all?

This book was utterly adorable. I've probably read at least a thousand romance novels in my life, and this one stood out as unique for several reasons.

#1: Candy. The plot revolves around CANDY. It's sweet and feel good, and even though I got anxious at one point, it never felt angst-ridden... which ...more

Dulcie Carter grew up tasting, creating, and surrounded by candy. So it only made sense to keep her mother's legacy and dream alive by taking over Candy Land Confections, her mother's homemade candy store, when she passed away. The only thing is, dreams don't come cheap. Between rent, supplies, and ...more

This was such a sweet story! Yes, pun intended ;o)

As far as romance novels go, this was on the "gentle" side, but still had so much feeling. I loved the characters (but I have to admit that Grams bugged me with her selfishness until close to the end). I was rooting for Dulcie the whole time and rea ...more

Dulcie and Nick are like modern day Romeo and Juliet.

This is a book you can read while relaxing and that will definitely be nice after any stressful/tiring day.

This book should come with a warning label that you will most certainly want a box of delicious chocolates and cupcakes while reading. This was a sweet (pun intended) and touching romance.

About the author

Rachel Astor

Rachel grew up with three sisters; an older, a younger, and a twin, in a house with only one bathroom. She now lives with her husband and two stepsons (and thankfully, two bathrooms), and have constant girl stuff withdrawal, which you'll find her books often reflect. I write light, fun books, that I hope put smiles on peoples faces.
