Book 1, Delicious Desires
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Amara Maria Robles is a good girl. So good that she gave up her dreams of becoming a renowned pastry chef to help her parents with their struggling Mexican bakery. Yet her parents reject any changes she suggests, and refuse to sell her mouth-watering confections. Clearly being a good girl isn't paying off. So when her brother's sexy ex-best friend walks into the bakery, Amara's tempted to be very bad indeed...
After a scandal twelve years ago, resident bad boy Eric Valencia has returned to make things right with his family and friends. One glance at Amara and her wicked curves, however, and Eric finds himself thinking about how she'd feel beneath him-something he promised Amara's brother he would never think about, let alone do.
But this bad boy is in deep trouble...because Amara's determined to have her cake, and Eric, too.

Too tempting to stop
Amara and Eric go way back to when he was her brother's best friend. He went away for more than a decade and is now back to help his Abuela (grandmother.) While he is back in town he wants to mend old hurts and get back together as best friends with Amara's brother.
Amara has always been attracted to Eric and now is no different. She has the hots for him just being in the same room! Apparently, he feels the same way and the chemistry ignites a fire neither is willing to put out.
Amara has put her life on hold to help her parents bring their baker back to life before they go bankrupt. Only they cannot let go of all the years and money they put in. Amara has great ideas and friends who want to help further the cause for the bakery and make it profitable.
Eric is trying to get his own business open in construction. He even has offers to go back to Las Vegas to work. He just does not want to leave Amara. He is also not sure that she wants him to stay. There is also another man who may be in her future...
This book has such great characters! The story flows so well and the wanting is so sweet. It gets hot in this kitchen so be aware that Amara and Eric together are smokin'! I enjoyed the story and learning about the food and culture.

What would life be like if you were lied to and it changed everything? Having a trouble past is the story of Eric's life. When he comes back home to start over, 12 years later, he sees Amara, whom he knew as a teen and sparks fly between them. There's only one problem. He's trying to rebuild his relationship with his ex best friend, Miguel, and there's one condition for that to happen. Miguel wants him to stay away from his sister...Amara. Uh oh!
This is a sweet romance of forbidden love, with some scorching scenes and a man that has an extremely sexy bedroom vocabulary. This is a story of loss, forgiveness and second chances.
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I cannot express how refreshing it is to read a romance where the hero and heroine are both Mexican ... Not that I'm knocking mixed heritage but this book was just great .. I'm so very fortunate to have stumbled across this author .. Read Eric and Amara's story it doesn't disappoint!
