Kimberly Raye finishes up her Farrel Sisters Trilogy with SWEET AS SUGAR, HOT AS SPICE, and boy, does she go out with a bang! If you haven't read the stories of Skye Farrel in KISS ME ONCE, KISS ME TWICE or that of Xandra Farrel in SOMETIMES NAUGHTY, SOMETIMES NICE, you'll want to pick those two up at the bookstore when you run out to purchase SWEET AS SUGAR, HOT AS SPICE.


Eve Farrel is starting to panic. She's recently watched both her older and younger sister find their happily-ever-afters and settle down in marital bliss-to the complete shock, dismay, and chagrin of their very famous feminist and anti-marriage mother, Jacqueline. Now that mom only has one single daughter left, she's determined that Eve will stay that way, no matter what. Jacqueline is driving Eve nuts, to the point that she now believes there's only one way to get her mother to leave her alone, once and for all-find a man, fast, and get married, even faster.

Fortunately for Eve, there's a man who is having a very similar problem. Linc "Shooter" Adams is known on the NASCAR circuit as a bad boy, a skirt-chaser who knows no limits-on or off the track. Everyone and their brother knows that Linc's family is urging him to follow in his father's footsteps by becoming Mayor of his hometown, and nothing Linc says to the contrary will convince the constituency that he doesn't want a life of politics. In the current poll, he's even ahead of his best friend, Craig Sanders, the man Linc wants more than anything to win the election. Desperate measures are called for, and taking a very unsuitable woman as his wife just might do the trick.

Eve is definitely an unsuitable politician's wife. As the owner of Sugar & Spice Sinema, a company that produces how-to sexual videos for couples who want to up their sex lives a few notches, Linc knows that marrying Eve Farrel will stop any Mayoral races cold. As for Eve, what better way to get her mother off her back than to marry Shooter, the ladies man of NASCAR?

Kimberly Raye has written a laugh-out-loud romance story that has two people thrown together as a matter of convenience, and learning to love each other as a matter of the heart. Eve finds out pretty quickly that Linc isn't as bad as he'd like the world to believe, and Linc in turn realizes that there's more to Eve than a sexy body. As these two find a balance between the desires of their family and the desires of their own bodies, it's a joy to be along for the ride.
