After a rocky year, life is once again sweet for brothers Troy and Quentin Elliot, and Quentin's new wife, Harper. Their bakery, Just Desserts, is thriving, with Quentin as pastry chef, and attorney Troy handling the books. In fact, Troy is ready to pursue his next big goal: to run for Mayor of Memphis, Tennessee. The competition is tough, but there's one challenge Troy doesn't anticipate--his opponent's distractingly beautiful campaign manager and daughter, Amina Salman. . .
A fellow attorney, Amina hopes to reconnect with her estranged father. But a chance meeting with Troy quickly complicates her task. Not only is her passionate spirit at odds with her father's conservative values, her attraction to his rival leaves her even more conflicted. Soon, Amina and Troy are falling in love--but when they surrender to sweet temptation, they find themselves with more at stake than a campaign victory. . .

Craving Temptation (Just Desserts) [Kindle Edition]
Deborah Fletcher Mello
In some cultures, arranged marriages are the norm. What should you do when have been raised in one culture and now you have been asked to adapt to another? Author, Deborah Fletcher Mello in her book “Craving Temptation” introduces us to an array of characters who obviously want to live in both worlds and do a great job of pretending all is well. The reader will enjoy the fast pace of events in an election year, the blending of characters and the mysterious motives that drive people. Kudos to Mello for opening our awareness of another culture and its’ practices.
