The Bachelor Preferred Pastry
by Shirley Jump

She's Betting Everything On One Hot Dish

Olivia Regan is determined to make her new pastry business a success. So what that all of her marketing plans have backfired and no one, including her own family, thinks that she can succeed. What she needs is a surefire attention-getter. And snaring Daniel Worth—the sexiest, most eligible bachelor in Boston—by bidding on him at a highly visible auction is the way to go. Using Daniel's celebrity to promote her business will be a piece of cake—if she can resist his considerable charms...

Daniel Worth inherited his considerable wealth, good looks, and playboy ways from his father and grandfather. He's never had to buckle down and work at anything in his life, and he doesn't imagine charming Olivia will be any different. But something about Olivia's never-say-die attitude stirs Daniel's own dreams. The girl may attract disaster like his family does money, but she's brave, smart, and downright adorable. She's also the only person he's never been able to buy. And soon, Daniel's got a new idea: walking away from his fortune to become his own man and prove to Olivia that he's the best investment she'll ever make...
