Getting the West Coast location of his family's celebrated patisserie off the ground is a full-time job for Chase Drayson. The driven corporate accountant doesn't have time for pleasure.

She's committed to her art, not romantic dreams -- even if the passion sizzling between them makes her believe they're not as different as they think.
