Overview

Hot, delicious romance

2013 Winner Second Place Contemporary Novel Category, Oklahoma Romance Writers International Digital Awards

Revised, sensuous edition of the original hardcover book published by Avalon Books in 2003 under the title "A Catered Affair."

There's more than business brewing between two old high school flames...

Stubbornly self-reliant Mary Beth Kendrick needs financial backing to keep her catering business cooking. A looming corporate buyout forces her to accept help from Tom Sackett, the man who broke her heart and left her with no appetite for love.

Unable to forget Mary Beth, Tom sets out to win her forgiveness. As he gets to know her again through their shared business interests, he realizes he wants more than forgiveness from her. He wants her in his life.

Grateful for Tom's support but unwilling to trust him, Mary Beth vows to keep their relationship strictly business. But his attentiveness, culminating in a night of passion, starts to melt her icy resolve and shows her the caring, sensitive man Tom has become.

Can Mary Beth learn to love and trust again? Will she and Tom open their hearts to a second chance at love?

"(Cara Marsi) whips up a delicious romance with her novel A Catered Romance. I devoured every sweet nuance in this story of reawakened love." ...RITA nominee Elizabeth Keys

"Mix together the sweetness of joy, the bitterness of betrayal, some salty angst, a dollop of spicy attraction and the luscious taste of love and you have the recipe for A Catered Romance. (Cara Marsi) has written a rich and deliciously flavored story meant to be savored." ...Donna Clayton, award-winning author

This title is also available in the Sweet Temptations Boxed Set.

    I felt this book was very realistic for the world today! The characters popped off the page in a wonderful way. Even Mary Beth's mother seemed so real. I also loved Gail and thought she was very well written. And Mary Beth and Tom were delicious. The incredible pull between them is what fantasies are made of! I am a huge Cara Marsi fan and this book didn't disappoint!!

    This was such a great read! Who wouldn't want to reconnect with

    This was such a great read! Who wouldn't want to reconnect with a high school flame when you're older and wiser and sexier? I love redemption tales and all the work Tom had to do to win over Mary Beth. The story reads like traditional Harlequins and Silhouettes, which I really enjoy. Very hot romance!
