Excerpt:

Simon knew he should hurry. He didn’t have that much time to get out of the city and to his country estate, where the big Christmas celebration was taking place. But he didn’t move a muscle as he stood there watching Pepper do her thing. Each golden caramel corkscrew was then placed atop a cupcake. They looked too good to eat.

When Pepper had finished with all the cupcakes, she straightened, glanced at him and blinked, as though she’d forgotten that he was still there waiting to talk to her. And then her gaze moved to the clock above his head.

“I have to hurry.” Her beautiful face creased with worry lines.

“What happens if you don’t finish these?” He knew the stakes were high, but he wondered how high they were.

Pepper shook her head as she boxed up the cupcakes. “That can’t happen.”

He moved next to her, placing a lid on the full box. “Pepper, stop for just a moment.”

She turned to him. “Simon, I’m sorry. I just don’t have time to talk. I have a very important party.”

“That’s the thing.”

“What’s the thing?”

His gaze met hers. “The party. It’s mine.”

“Yours?” She shook her head. “I spoke with a woman. Elaine something or other. I have her full name written on the order. And this party is in Connecticut.”

He nodded. “Elaine Haskins is my assistant and the party is at my country home.”

Pepper’s face creased with lines of frustration. She didn’t say a word as she digested the information.

“I’m sorry,” he said. “This is my fault. Everyone was so impressed with you at the office party that Elaine added you to our catering list. After what happened between us, I forgot to say anything to her. I totally understand you wanting to cancel—”

“Cancel?” Her shoulders straightened and she lifted her chin slightly. “I’m not canceling.”
