I have always been afraid of the dark.
There are two things I could never grow used to: the dark and the cold. Lying there on a lumpy mattress, wrapped in a blanket that smelled like cigarette smoke, with a creaky metal frame to top it all off, I shivered. Even though my mother rarely paid the light or gas bills, forcing me endure frigid temperatures and terrifying darkness frequently, I always shivered and I was always afraid.

"What's a Geisha Cocktail?"
He leaned in to be heard above the dull buzzing of other conversations. His lips grazed my ear as his arm rested on the back of my chair." A blend of white rum with orange and pineapple juice," he said, his breath tickling the side of my neck. At this rate I wasn't going to need a Geisha Cocktail; I would be drunk on him in no time.

Wedding planner Taylor Vaughn specializes in magical moments. So when her best friend asks her to plan his wedding, the task should have come as simply to her as all the others. There’s only one problem……she is desperately in love with the groom.
Caleb has always been Taylor’s best friend as well as her deepest and most secret desire. Her hopes that he will someday come to love her back are dashed on the day he brings his new fiancé into their lives. While the misery of losing the man she loves to another woman looms over her, she doesn’t expect to find her head turned by the most unlikely of strangers.
Ethan Young, cake decorator, is everything a woman could want in a man: handsome, charismatic, and has a way with icing! When she finds herself feeling more than simple attraction for the sexy baker, her heart is torn in two between the man she’s always loved and the man who’s slowly stealing her heart.
