Romance That Takes the Cake (or Pie)

I just love a good romance. Bodice rippers, paranormal fantasy and cowboy romance have their place, but what I really love is what I like to call “foodie romance.” Give me the ups and downs, falling apart and coming back together, witty banter and misunderstandings of your typical romance and then…give me CAKE (or pie)! The love stories in the books listed below are fun and sweet, but the descriptions of cakes, pies, pastries and other culinary delights are what really make you forget life for a few hours and whisk you away on a sugar high.
