I can’t wait for you to read the fifth installment of my Assignment: Romance series! Since it won’t release until right after that holidays (that’s right – those holidays), I’m sharing the back cover blurb here.
Nancy Braley is the Chicago Gazette’s food editor with a taste for hot chefs and a knack for replicating their “secret” recipes. But when she finally gets up the nerve to ask out a hot local café owner, Doug Johnston, she’s crushed when he says she’s not the “marriage material” he’s looking for.
Doug is perplexed by his attraction to Nancy whose take-no-prisoners personality reminds him way too much of his cheating ex. To keep Nancy and his conflicted feelings at bay, he throws out the only excuse he can come up with—she’s just not marriage material.
Not one to be deterred, Nancy becomes obsessed with figuring out what exactly that means—partly because she doesn’t want to emulate her oft-married but divorce-settlement-wealthy mother, and partly because her attraction to Doug is driving her to distraction. So when a married and very pregnant colleague gets put on bed rest until her baby arrives, Nancy volunteers to feed her family, hoping to get a first-hand look at what marriage is all about. And when Doug’s ex opens a new coffee shop nearby, stealing business from his café, it’s Nancy who comes to his aid! Eager to call Doug’s bluff, can she convince him she’s the real deal?
