Way to Her Heart. Melanie Schuster
If you can’t stand the heat…
Sherry Stratton has kept her heart on ice for years. Between her pediatric practice and her seven-year-old daughter, the accomplished physician believes she has no time for romance. But every time she’s around Lucas Van Buren, her temperature starts rising. So why does she keep resisting the sexy chef?
stay out of the bedroom!
From the moment they meet at his brother’s wedding, Lucas has eyes only for Sherry. The polished restaurateur has tried everything he can think of to become more than a friend. Now, after months of effort, Lucas and Sherry are finally heating up between the sheets, and the lovemaking is oh-so-sweet. Lucas thinks they’re solid, but when someone from Sherry’s past suddenly resurfaces, their delicious relationship is put to the test.…
Lucas had been wanting to kiss Sherri for months.
Tonight, he finally gave in to his natural desire. He leaned his head close to hers. He took his time, savoring the first touch of her soft, inviting mouth. The light pressure was followed by his tongue tenderly outlining the curve of her lips, teasing them open to receive him. She responded by parting her lips, opening wide enough to take his tongue against her own, permitting him to give her the pleasure she’d previously denied herself. Their mouths mated like lovers who’d been away from each other for too long.
His hands cupped her face. She stroked his shoulders, sliding up to his neck. Holding him gently but firmly, she allowed the kiss to deepen while their tongues did an extended, sensual dance, stroking and tasting until it seemed as though they had done this many, many times. It could have gone on for minutes or hours—Lucas didn’t know and he didn’t care. All he knew at that moment was that he didn’t want this kiss to end.
started reading when she was four. Currently, it is still a passion, and whenever she has a spare moment she is reading. Fascinated with books and the art of story-telling, she wanted to be a writer from the time she was very young. She fell in love with romances when she began reading the books her mother brought home. As she grew older, she would go to any store that sold paperbacks and load up on her own.
Melanie loves romances because they are always hopeful. Despite the harsh realities of life, romance always brings to mind the wonderful, exciting adventure of falling in love with a soul mate. She believes in love and romance with all her heart, and she finds fulfillment in writing stories about compelling couples who find true, lasting love in the face of obstacles. She hopes all her readers find their true love. If they’ve already been lucky enough to find love, she hopes that they never forget what it felt like to fall in love.

Thanks for coming on another trip to Columbia, South Carolina, for more love and excitement. This time it was Dr. Sherri Stratton’s turn to find her love, with Lucas VanBuren, thanks to her very sweet and precocious daughter Sydney.
Those of you who live in the south know all about the Spoleto Festival that Lucas and Sherri visit. If you’ve never been, you should go—it’s amazing!
The farmer’s market in the Honey Horn area of Hilton Head is also a real place. I do love a farmer’s market. Or any upscale market where you can buy exotic goods as well as local produce. I do love to cook, so writing about the VanBuren chefs is a lot of fun for me, and I hope all my foodie readers are enjoying it, too.
Until next time, keep reading and stay blessed!
