Here is a brief description of each novel:

Book 1: Will to Love (Clarise Carson and Will Matthews)

Clarise Carson is desperate to keep her newly-engaged sister from playing matchmaker at her very own engagement party. She can't think of anything more embarrassing than have her sister's guests see her as the loser in love who can't find The One, so she drags a handsome friend to be her pretend date for the night.

Will Matthews attends his friend's engagement party purely for business reasons. He has no desire whatsoever to be introduced to single females who are after a boyfriend. He is far too focused on building his business to the success he dreams.

When Will and Clarise meet, sparks fly. Can Clarise stop her old wounds from opening up again and take another chance on love? And how can Will learn to embrace the one thing he doesn't even know he wants?

Book 2: Heart Robber (Jessa Allen and Rob Granger)

Jessa Allen knows she's plain and average, even when her well-meaning friends encourage her to believe otherwise. So when hunky and gorgeous Rob Granger asks her out, she is shocked. A seriously handsome man wants her, and that isn't something that happens everyday.

Rob Granger is a self-confessed playboy who has absolutely no plans to be tied down by any woman. He values his freedom first and foremost, and his expanding business is the only thing he is committed to. But he is intent on satisfying his intense desire for Jessa Allen who attracts him like a moth to a flame.

When Jessa agrees to a fling with Rob she finds herself falling for the man who cannot promise her tomorrow. Can she trust herself not to fall apart when the time comes to let Rob go? And can Rob ever find freedom in what he considers a prison to be avoided at all cost?

Book 3: Ray of Love Book (Faye Summers and Ray Thackery)

Faye Summers decides that casual dating is the way to go to ensure she's fully healed from her last breakup. When Ray Thackery, her best friends' boss, asks her out, she agrees–but only if they keep it quiet. She doesn't want the complications that may arise with her best friends' working relationship with Ray if their fling ends up in a sour note.

Ray Thackery has kept his feelings for Faye hidden for so long. Now that she is single again, he is determined not to miss this chance to make her fall for him. He's not interested in a casual-only affair. Not with Faye. He wants more than that with her.

Their relationship, beautiful and passionate when it started, quickly arrives at the crossroads. How can it survive when the two people involved have very different intentions?


Thank you for reading and sharing! I'll be back soon with more news on Book 3 of the Time for Love series.

Loving The Sweet Things

I love food, I love eating out and I loooove dessert.

One of my all-time favourite desserts is Tiramisu.  I can't go past it if it's on offer.

I'm not a very good cook of anything so when I tried making my first Tiramisu from a recipe I found in an Italian cookbook, I was very pleased that it turned out great.  But the second time I made it, it wasn't as good as the first time even though I tried to follow the recipe to a “T”.

I think that's why I made Clarise Carson, the main character of my free romance novel Will To Love, an expert in making Tiramisu. 😀

One day, I found this recipe of the most beautiful Tiramisu Cake I've seen.   It was from a website called  Boy, if I could make my Tiramisu look like this, I'd be a very happy gal.  It really looks enticing, doesn't it?

Here's the link to the full recipe if you'd like to give it a try.

Much A Munch's Tiramisu Cake

So guess what?  This is the Tiramisu that Clarise had perfected.  This is the recipe she followed when she made her Tiramisu for her family and for Will's family.  No wonder it was such a hit!

The first time Clarise made her famous Tiramisu for Will's parents, he almost didn't notice it.  To his defence, he did have a good reason to be distracted.  Here's a short extract from the novel:


Clarise paced her living room as she waited for Will to pick her up.  She was meeting his parents tonight and she was nervous.  She hoped they'd like the tiramisu she made for dessert.  It was a dish she had perfected and the only one she felt confident enough to bring to dinner.

She heard the buzzer and told Will she'd meet him downstairs.  She prayed she wouldn't bump into anyone on her way out.  She was wearing a short-sleeved dress that zipped all the way down the front and exposed a great deal of her cleavage.  It was all for Will's benefit, of course.

Will gawked at her as she exited the building.

“Hi, honey,” she said and kissed his lips.  From their close proximity, she knew he had the best view of her breasts covered by a pink, lacy bra.

“Baby …” Will said hoarsely.  His breathing had quickened.  “Baby …” he said again, swallowing hard and still looking down her chest.


“I think my parents will have the shock of their lives when they see you in that dress,” he croaked.  He lifted his hand and slowly ran a knuckle over the exposed swell of her breast.

Her breath hitched and her skin tingled where he touched her.

A car drove past, breaking the spell.  They were out on the street!  Fortunately, no one was around apart from some passing cars.

“Oh, this is just for you.  Now that I've greeted you, I can make myself look more modest,” she explained as she tugged the zipper up to cover herself.  “Did you like that?” she couldn't help whispering to him sensuously.

Will's eyes darkened and a seductive smile touched his lips.  “So you mean this zipper can go all the way up and … all the way down?” he asked lasciviously.

“Yes, all the way down,” she whispered.

He licked his lips.  “I'm sure my parents won't mind if we get there an hour late.”

She chuckled even as she felt herself go wet.  Oh, she was tempted to take him up on that offer, but she'd prefer delayed gratification.  She didn't want Will's parents to have a bad first impression of her if they turned up late.

“No, I think we have to go there now, honey.  And my arm is getting tired from carrying this tiramisu.”

It was only then that Will noticed the dish she was holding up with one arm.  He seemed to have gotten too distracted by the sight of her breasts.

“Sorry, my sweet,” he said as he took the dish from her.  Then he bent down to capture her mouth.

“Let's go,” he said after a passionate but all too brief kiss that left her wanting more.


Enjoy the sweet things in your life!
