My husband and I are currently planning the biggest trip of our lives – China!
And I have to admit, I’m a basket case. What if I forget something vital? What
if I get lost in the Hong Kong airport? What if I accidentally order fish-head
soup and we run out of Immodium?
The heroine of my latest book, THE CHOCOLATE COMEBACK, the
spoiled fashion model DeeDee Cash, gets her comfort zone expanded dramatically
when she takes a job caring for Mark, a young man with Down syndrome. DeeDee
rises to the challenge famously – but not without butting heads with Mark’s
handsome and overprotective brother, Isaac, of course.
THE CHOCOLATE COMEBACK,
released April 6, is part of the Love at the Chocolate Shop multi-author
series by Tule Publishing and readers are eating it up! 😊
Here’s a teaser for you:
DeeDee wasn't what Isaac was looking for. Well, Isaac Litton wasn't what she was
looking for, either. She wanted something that would pay off her credit card
bills and keep her occupied when she wasn't working her other job. She did not
want to deal with a sternly rumpled big brother in faded jeans that rode his
hips like a lover and made her want to yank the hem of his shirt from his
waistband to see how warm his skin was.
"You're so pretty." Mark propped his face in his hands and gazed at her.
"You have peanut butter in your hair." She really did not want a sticky
teddy-bear of a groupie who needed clean clothes, lessons in food safety and
"What's going on up here?" Isaac entered the kitchen. He'd left the
tortoiseshell glasses in his office. Why were some men so sexy in glasses, while
others just looked like dorks?
"Decontamination," she answered. "Might want to have the knife talk with your
She waved the sharp implement and tilted her head at Mark.
Isaac's face blanched. "Mark. You know you're only allowed to use the knives in
Mark's face crumpled into a pout. "They're all dirty."
"I'm sensing a theme," said DeeDee. "I have two words for you, Isaac: hazard pay."
DeeDee and Isaac both change and grow through the course of their story. And I
will change and grow during our upcoming adventure. After all, if we forget
anything, it’s China. They make everything, right?
USA TODAY bestselling author Roxanne Snopek writes contemporary
romance both sexy and sweet, in small towns, big cities and secluded islands,
with families and communities that will warm your heart. Her fictional heroes
(like her own real-life hero) are swoon-worthy, uber-responsible, secretly
vulnerable and occasionally dough-headed, but animals love them, which makes
everything okay. Roxanne writes from British Columbia, Canada, where she is
surrounded by flowers, wildlife and two adoring dogs. She does yoga to stay
sane. It works, mostly.

Chocolate Shop #7
Fame, fortune and fashion: that’s aspiring model Deirdre Cash’s ideal life.
But when her splashy New York career dries up, she swallows her pride and
returns to Marietta, Montana, desperate for any work she can find.
Isaac Litton doesn’t want the intrusion of a home care aide for his brother,
Mark. But when the young man takes a shine to DeeDee, Isaac decides to give her
a chance. He can’t help but be impressed when DeeDee changes his brother’s life
around, by rewarding healthy habits and exercising with treats from the Copper
Mountain Chocolate Shop. Gorgeous and opinionated, DeeDee stirs everything up in
the Litton household, including an attraction that Isaac can't deny.
As DeeDee and Isaac start to fall for each other, an unexpected opportunity
arises that could launch DeeDee back into the modeling scene. It's her chance to
achieve everything she's ever wanted. But taking it would mean letting down her
friends at the chocolate shop, her family who believes in her, a boy who adores
her, and a man who thinks she's already perfect, just the way she is.
