Three very different couples--a reformed rake and his devoted new wife, an old flame and her reckless lover, and a conservative radio host and his sexy secret--find themselves on the path to friendship, family, love and sex, commitment, and compromise. Original.
From Sue Margolis, the beloved author of Forget Me Knot and Gucci, Gucci Coo, comes a clever, capricious novel about lust, longing, and sizing up the competition. After enduring her share of commitment-phobic boyfriends, Amy Brown trades in her high-powered PR job and designer shoes to embark on the journey of single motherhood. Now, with a rambunctious boy of six and chaotic shifts serving decadent muffins and high-octane brew at a local coffee bar, Amy could use a fix herself—preferably the sexy, smoky-eyed grande type. No one is more shocked than Amy to discover that Sam Draper is made perfectly to order: hot, sweet, and delicious. There is just one teeny problem. He’s the architect for the neighborhood’s brand-new Bean Machine, her employer’s fiercest rival. Still, Sam is sexy, fun, and really likes Amy’s son, Charlie. Amy can’t resist the steamy passion—or the feeling that Sam is hiding a secret or two. Could there be something rotten in the beans that make up the Machine’s secret blend? Or is it something more personal? Harnessing her untapped yet formidable journalistic skills, Amy blows the lid off a story that will change her life, but will Sam stick around to share it? Perfect Blend is as addictive as a Frappuccino—but not nearly as fattening. From the Trade Paperback edition.
One thing I love about God is that He is always in the restoration business. We may make decisions that cause us to experience brokenness in one way or another, but He is always working with and for us to put things back together again. God knew that our lives wouldn’t always measure up to His ideals, yet He made provision for us. Psalm 68:6 tells us that it is God who sets the solitary into families. God still has a plan for you and your family, a plan that’s good and causes you to win. The Perfect Blend Devotional uses the Word of God to encourage you, enlighten you, and motivate you. Failure doesn’t have to be your final outcome; you can make your second time around sweeter. Your family can be the perfect blend!

Opening a Christian coffeehouse in Seattle—that was my dream. I wanted to call it Maggie Black's Higher Grounds. So when banker William Grey III denied my loan, I was crushed. But then Mr. Grey (who's a tea drinker—figures!) explained that if I took his small-business course, the bank might reconsider my application. It would take the help of some of my fab coffee, but I was sure I could stay awake long enough to learn something. Besides, despite Grey's stuffy façade, his velvety British accent could make even financial analysis sound interesting.
