Melanie “Mellie” Rose Devlin was supposed to be a Kansas wife and mother. But after her fiancé cheated on her, she ran away to Los Angeles, determined to start over. Hiding behind red lipstick and her grandmother’s pearls, she started working at her cousin’s bakery and drew up a practical plan for her future. But spilling cake all over herself in front of Hollywood’s hottest leading actor wasn’t part of that plan.
Despite Mellie’s embarrassment, Hollywood star Jackson Traver seems strangely charmed by her. At first, Mellie can hardly believe her luck. How could the guy voted “Sexiest Man Alive” fall for a clumsy pastry chef? But once she gives in to temptation, she finds herself dining with A-list stars and shopping on Rodeo Drive…all while Jackson gives her a delicious taste of true desire. Now, Mellie’s not sure she can ever go back to her plan for a nice, sensible life. But can a red-carpet love really last forever?
