Once Upon a Stolen Kiss
(Baker’s Sweet Love Recipes Collection Book 1)
Enemies. A Mix-up. An Unforgettable Kiss.
Bev knows a scoundrel when she sees one. British landscaper Tim Robins is nothing less than a con artist, scooping up free room and board and even part-ownership of her mother’s beloved Sea Rose Cottage Inn.
Robins has often run across beautiful women with an axe to grind, but Bev’s sharp tongue and control-freakish demands push him over the edge. His retaliatory words, like arrows, find their mark; and teary-eyed Bev is silenced.
Intent on avoiding each other, Tim and Bev take extraordinary pains to do so. That’s easier said than done since Bev has taken over her mother’s innkeeping duties, and Tim works and lives at the inn 24/7.
Despite the tension, Bev finds herself happily engaged to Jeff Grazier, Bar Harbor’s most eligible bachelor; and Tim dates beautiful Michelle, his successful landscape designer.
Then the unthinkable happens: a dimly-lit room, a mix-up and an unforgettable kiss.
