Overview
"An author to watch out for." --"RT Book Reviews"
Some people follow the rules. . .
A professor of forensic anthropology, James Donovan is the reasonable sibling among the passionate, impulsive Donovans. But there's nothing reasonable about his reaction to baker Gracie Roberts. She's all wild curls and mouth-watering curves, as deliciously tempting as the sugary treats she's famous for--and twice as irritating. But before long, James decides that getting a taste of her is one indulgence he can't pass up. . .
Some people play to win. . .
Independent, smart, and sexy, Gracie's year-long dry spell has her itching for a man. Responsible, health-obsessed James? Not in a million years She needs a guy who knows how to let loose But when James sets out to show her just how satisfying a disciplined man can be when pleasure is at stake, she learns just how sweet--and spicy--he really is.
Have James and Gracie found the recipe for love?

In the third Something New contemporary (after The Winner Takes It All), Dawson pits luscious smalltown girl Gracie Roberts against Chicagoan James Donovan. When they met, instant dislike festered between them. They shared nothing in common except the marriages of their friends and family. Gracie’s a baker; James is a health food nut. Gracie is self-taught; James has a Ph.D. in forensic anthropology. Gracie is chaos and fire; James is calm and orderly. But family is important to them both, and 18 months after their disastrous first encounter, they decide they need to get along, though the tension between them crescendos. Dawson deftly threads in backstory, explaining the vast differences between the protagonists and smoothing the way for love. Tantalizing sex scenes and innuendos add sizzle, but the real strength of the characterization is revealed in their human need for understanding and empathy. The denouement falls a bit flat with overplayed drama, but the characters carry the story. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Oct.)
