The sweetest treat is a kiss...
Greggory Redcake's plate is full. Widowed young and left with two small children, the manager of the Kensington location of the illustrious tea shop is besieged on all sides between the bakery and family matters. If only his remarkably efficient shop assistant, Betsy Popham, could manage his home life, too! But Greggory can't linger on thoughts of Betsy's fetching smile when a dead body is discovered in the bakery...
Betsy has no time for romance, not even with the delectable Mr. Redcake, whose kisses are all too unforgettable. Haunted by a specter from her family's past, Betsy is terrified that the man blackmailing her has turned to deadly violence. Yet the only way to save her position--and possibly her life--is to accept Greggory's help as their delicious attraction sweetens into the tantalizing promise of true love...
Praise for Heather Hiestand's novels
"One Taste of Scandal is a delicious, multi-layered Victorian treat."
--Gina Robinson, author of The Last Honest Seamstress and the Agent Ex series
"This fast paced read is both sweet and fun. It's rare to find historical romances that feature couples who are of anything but Anglo Saxon decent, and this one does a solid job of addressing some of these difficulties....A fast read with a different view point than many novels in the genre." –Library Journal on His Wicked Smile
"This is definitely one for the keeper shelf." Historical Romance Lover on His Wicked Smile
"A delightful, sexy glimpse into Victorian life and loving with two wonderfully non traditional lovers." Jessa Slade, author of Dark Prince's Desire, on His Wicked Smile
