Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…
For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.
About the Author
I’m a small town girl with some big city experience, and happiest living somewhere in between.
As a child, I tried endlessly to convince my parents that I needed a pet ostrich to ride to the beach. By age ten, I’d drawn up plans and a budget to build a bathroom in my bedroom closet. (It was a tiny closet!) While these campaigns, and numerous others, never came to fruition, my parents always encouraged my creativity and imagination. I studied fashion design in college and worked in that industry much of my life. I switched gears to follow the writing muse, and my first novel released in 2011.
These days, I live a charmed existence. I have two amazing kids, an incredible (and smokin’ hot) husband and the best friends in the world. When I’m not writing the sexy stories that swirl around in my head, you can find me lifting weights at the gym or cuddled up with a book, surrounded by a pack of pets.

Light Romantic Comedy. Having just come off a short reading spree in which the books dealt with very serious problems and/or had unhappy/unsettling endings, A Cup of Sugar was just what I needed to escape from the blanket of doom. A Cup of Sugar is light, sexy and fun. Conn and Nia are neighbors. He’s been attracted to her for a long time, but even though she spies on him through her window, she won’t give him the time of day, because he’s a neighbor and if a relationship doesn’t work out, she’ll be stuck living next to him. But when her car dies just as she plans to visit her parent’s for New Year’s, she reluctantly accepts his offer of a lift. Give a man an inch, and he’ll take a mile. Conn leverages the long drive to get closer to Nia--much closer. Author Karla Doyle is the master of the one-liner. Like her other novels, A Cup of Sugar is filled with Romancher trademark wit and hot, hot sex. This book, as I stated, is lighter in tone than her others, but by virtue of that, has escape/entertainment value that so many readers seek in their romances. It was refreshing to read about characters who are basically normal instead of being saddled with major dysfunctions or traumas. If this were a movie, it would be considered romantic comedy. This book was a pleasure to read, and I recommend it to anyone who likes contemporary romance.
Cup of Sugar by Karla Doyle What can I say other that Karla is BRILLIANT! I love every book she has written. Conn is a wonderful man. He waited a year for Nia because of her stupid rule. He never gave up on her and made her come out of her shell. This was a wonderful story and I can't wait to see how Sara handles Curtis. LOL
