SPECIAL OF THE DAY
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Roxanne Rayeaux stays mum about her days as a swimsuit model and instead turns her attention to her new careermaking pastries at the French bistro she just opened in Virginia. Bistro bartender and part-time historian Steve Serrano, meanwhile, secretly pursues his passion for uncovering a missing historical documentone that's rumored to still be hidden in the restaurant building.
Although it's lust at first sight between Roxanne and Steve, their
Fox's novel is pure, delightful romance from beginning to end! The hero is so sexy and smart that readers will fall in love with him from the first chapter. The writing is simply terrificcrisp dialogue, humorous characterization, skillful pacing. The Cyrano references are entertaining rather than heavy-handed, and the light mystery plot is good fun.
