Like the sinfully decadent treats she whips up in her bakery, Poppy Blakemore is irresistible, even to a battle scarred warrior like Matthew McAlister. Unfortunately, except for a love for delicious pastry and a passion so hot it leaves them scorched in its wake the two of them have nothing in common. He is a straight-as-an arrow helicopter pilot who has been traumatized by combat, while she struggles to reconcile her capitalist tendencies with her counter-culture background. The passion between them is undeniable, but Poppy knows that anything more than a sexual relationship is out of the question. Is sex and buttercream strong enough to hold them together, or is their love doomed like an overcooked madeleine?
