A truly sweet Christmas romance by Beth Barany!

You all know how much I love Beth Barany's books! I've read all of the stories, and they're simply wonderful. They're sweet, not filled with all the naughty stuff I put in my books. Which is really a refreshing change, don't you think? And I adore her Henrietta series. Henrietta is a dragon slayer, and the books are filled with adventure and angst and all that fabulous fantasy stuff. Beth does fantasy so well. And I consider the Touchstone series to be fantasy. Or maybe it's fairy tale. Anyway, with Beth you get dragons and gargoyles and Santa and Christmas elves!

So let's dig in to Beth's latest release in the Touchstone series, A Cupcake Christmas. Here's the review I've posted on Amazon and Goodreads. As you can tell, I loved the story! And where are my cupcakes!? This story really gave me a craving. Oh, and the other thing is that I love all the Bay Area references, San Francisco, Berkley. Since I live in the Bay Area, it was really cool to read about a place I love.

What could be better than Santa and his elves at Christmas! Well, a very sexy elf who wants to become a Master Baker mixed with a tenacious businesswoman and her brand new cupcake business is certainly up there! Florian and Kate’s story is another great addition to the Touchstone series. I’ve enjoyed every story, and A Cupcake Christmas is as delightful as the rest. Kate and Florian are wonderful and I was rooting for them the whole way. What a marvelous way to spend Christmas, reading with a cup of tea and a nice fire. Now I’m going to have to add cupcakes to that as well. In addition to the romance, I loved reading about Kate’s tenacity in building her business, especially all the different cupcakes, which were magical themselves. I’ve never thought of savory cupcakes before but this story was an inspiration! I look forward to the next in the series.

ABOUT A CUPCAKE CHRISTMAS

What if you risked losing your baking legacy by cooking up a love truly special?
Florian MacMillian needs a final job to complete his baking resume—preferably a job where he’s unlikely to blow things up with his unruly magic—before returning to the North Pole and taking his rightful place as Master Baker to all the elves.

Kate Delore desperately needs help in her fast-growing cupcake business. Florian is a perfect fit, so she brings him on as baker. For a short time, Florian is happily up to his elbows in batter, and Kate’s business is booming.
But when things heat up between them, Florian wonders if he should risk his legacy to cook up something truly special.
