Thirty-six year old Emma Rae Travis has been baking specialty cakes and melt in you mouth pastries at The Backstreet Bakery in historic Roswell, just outside of Atlanta, for the last six years. But here's the rub about her job as a baker...Emma is diabetic. When she tastes her creations, it can only be in the most minute portions. Emma is considered an artisan for the stunning Creme brulee wedding cake that won her the Passionate Palette Award last year, but she's never even had one full slice of it.
When Jackson Drake hears about this local baker who has won a prestigious award for her wedding cake artistry, he tells his assistant to be sure and include her in the pastry tastings scheduled at his new wedding destination hotel the following week. And for Jakson, that particular day has started out badly with two workmen trapped in a broken elevator and a delivery of several dozen 300-thread count bed linens in the wrong size abandoned in the lobby. But when the arrogant baker he met a week prior in Roswell stumbles into the dining room with a platter of pastries and a buckerful of orders, he knows for certain: it's going to be a really rotten day.
