Step into Rare Confectionery on New Bond Street, where three talented sisters create treats as delectable to the tongue as they are appealing to the eye. One taste is all it takes to be captivated...

Charlotte hasn't had anything go wrong in her blissful existence as a confectioner. Always smiling, she loves working with her sisters, and she adores her customers. Moreover, she holds a secret in her heart.

The Viscount Jeffcoat watches the joy disappear from the eyes of the most appealing woman he knows, as sweet as her marzipan creations. Desperately trying to right whatever wrong she is facing, he hopes to woo and win her, only to discover the unthinkable.

When it seems all she has ever cherished will be lost—and by her own carelessness—Charlotte turns to the one man who has promised her nothing while giving her everything. Can she and Lord Jeffcoat overcome betrayal and ruin to build a life of love and laughter?


Miss Charlotte Rare-Foure makes the Marzipan confection at the family's shop in New Bond Street.  With her sisters' recent marriages more of the work has been on her shoulders. Everything is going well and Charlotte finds someone to help out.  When things start to spin out of control there is one person who she can think of to help her. 
Charles,  Viscount Jeffcoat has known the Rare-Foure family since his friend married the eldest daughter, and has always seen Charlotte as flighty and immature. He soon learns there is much more to her than he believes. 
The daughter of a shopkeeper is maybe not refined enough for a serious minded Viscount and barrister,  but her sparkling,  happy personality can't help but draw everyone to her. 
This is a fast paced sweet historical story that will be better if you have read the previous books in the series,  but still enjoyable on it's own.  
Really good fun.
