He may own a candy company, but this wealthy bachelor is no Willy Wonka.
A new standalone sexy contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Nina Lane!
Sugar Rush Candy Company CEO Luke Stone is a devoted businessman who doesn't do relationships. He does short-term affairs with clearly defined rules. But when a sexy bohemian angel propositions him in a bar, Luke is tempted to want more.
Polly Lockhart is horrified when she wakes the morning after her twenty-third birthday to realize she made a fool of herself with a sinfully delicious man. She tells herself she doesn't have time for romance anyway, as she's fighting to keep her mother's beloved bakery afloat and finish her culinary studies. That all changes when her class tours the famed Sugar Rush headquarters, and Polly collides with her dream man again.
As she succumbs to their hot attraction, Polly soon realizes her bakery isn't the only thing that needs saving. Luke, driven and unyielding, will burn out unless someone convinces him to taste the sweetness of life. But can Polly remember this sugar rush is only temporary?

Mmmm...I love sex and candy!
A bag of Cheetos made baker Polly Lockhart realize she needed to ditch the fog and re-enter life after her mother's death. Polly takes a leap, propositioning the most gorgeous man she's ever seen…then promptly barfing on his rich guy loafers. Sugar Rush Candy Company head honcho Luke Stone doesn't do relationships. He barely does anything but work. But the second he laid eyes on the bohemian Polly, he barely recognized himself. For a man in the candy business, Luke recognizes when something is too sweet to be good for you, but damn it if he can stay away. He feels lighter with her, freer than he's been in years. They're from different worlds, he a mega-successful confectionary empire and her from a hippie commune…but it'll be sweet while it lasts.
The decadent flow of SWEET DREAMS was a little slow to get started, but once Ms. Lane got into the groove, I was totally bewitched! Polly is this little hippie boho chick who's terrible at running a business but masterful at making the baked goods. She's lighthearted and fun yet with just enough seriousness to not be cliché. Luke was the standard gazillionaire CEO...staunchly strict bachelor with no time for pleasure. Which is a damn shame, since he runs a freakin' candy company! Willy Wonka he is not (unless he's the Johnny Depp Wonka...dude makes a man-bob look weirdly hot). Luke has little time for the fanciful in life, but meeting Polly sets him on a collision course that he's needed for a long time.
Bottom Line: Perfect amount of humor and sex and sweet treats!
