Good morning and welcome to Tantalizing Tuesday. Today I'm sharing an excerpt of my latest release, Dating in the Dark, Book 1 in the Sweet Delights Series.
“I need something delicious and naughty,” Sophie Rose said, exaggerating each word slowly, lacing each syllable with a need that said she wanted it now. Because she did. Badly. “Something rich and decadent that will melt on my tongue so I can taste it all day. And please, please—make it huge.”
“Would you like that with or without cream?” a husky, very male voice said.
Heat surged to her face with the force of scalding water, her mouth forming a wide O. She dropped her pen, fumbling with both hands to regain hold of the phone she’d nearly tossed like a hot potato.

“Sweet Delights—that’s me,” he drawled.
Sweet Delights indeed. The name suddenly conjured up images of naughtiness that had nothing to do with delicious cakes and pastries. Treat Day Friday had suddenly taken on a new meaning.
Can you find what you need hidden within the dark?
Hiding out in his sister's bakery to recover from a recent injury
isn't an ideal solution for newly unemployed meteorologist Damian Trent.
Especially since he doesn't like cake. But hiding anywhere is
preferable to facing the media frenzy revolving around his life. He has
no intention of being seen by anyone. That is, until he hears a
honey-toned voice over the phone.
Public relations agent Sophie Rose has a boss who makes her working
week a hellish one. He drives her to her need for sugar, so the recently
opened Sweet Delights Bakery is perfect for her much needed Friday
treat. But one day when she calls to place an order, she gets an
Sophie's keen to dump her V-plates, though only the right man will
do. Damian, with his sexy, yet familiar sounding voice, seems the ideal
person for her to gain some much needed experience with. But why do they
need to date in the dark?
