Rachel Farris drops everything when she gets a call from her grandmother about needing some help. Even though her life is in turmoil and her plush job is on the line, Rachel knows that when it comes to Edna -- family always comes first.
Mike Romo loves being a cop. What he cannot stand are people who think it is ok to speed without conscious thought.
When Rachel gets pulled over, she thinks it cannot get worse than that until she finds out that a Romo is writing her ticket and it is like pouring salt into the wound. When it comes to the town of Destiny, the Romo and the Farris families have clashed since the apple orchard was supposedly stolen from a Romo and put into the clutches of a Farris. When Mike and Rachel find themselves practically electrocuted each time they touch, their heat continues to simmer until one touch has them exploding in passion. When the Apple Festival is over, will Rachel go back to her plush life or stay in Destiny and try to explore the life she can have with Mike?
As always Toni Blake has a way of getting into a reader’s head with her sensational novels and charismatic characters. Sugar Creek is one spicy novel with a Shakespearean theme of feuding families, two lovers caught in the middle, and a budding love. The tale of the way the feud started that is interspersed throughout the novel just adds to the quality of the book. Add in the mysterious speeding car, the dangerous kidnapping, and as always the tangible passion between two strong-willed people, and this is one hot read!
