Hello and welcome!
Today I have a yummy hunk that if you are a fan of Marie Harte’s books, you’ve met before.
Here is Anson! …. mmmmmm
What is your full name?
Do you have a nickname?
“The Great” ha. Kidding… mostly
What is one word best describes you?
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
A pair of understated khakis, a red button-down shirt over a comfortable white tee, and leather boots. It’s my winter business casual. Later I’ll be wearing skis, boots, snow pants, a jacket and goggles as I race down the slopes.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Mostly. I’m a bit smarter than I’ve been portrayed, actually. And I wouldn’t say I’m that arrogant. The truth is I’m brilliant, sexy, and successful. I just can’t help being me.
What makes you laugh out loud?
My cousin trying to pretend he’s smarter than me.
What is your favourite dessert?
White chocolate cheesecake. I have a sweet tooth.
What is your favourite drink?
Beer, in particular, Apocalypse IPA by 10 Barrel. Let’s hope their sale to Anheuser-Busch doesn’t tank the label.
What is your greatest fear?
You know, I don’t feel comfortable disclosing that. But I will say if Riley doesn’t stop avoiding me, I might grow desperate enough to do something stupid.
What is your favourite colour?
Green. I’m partial to mermaids.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing in the summer, but flannel pants in the winter. It’s cold out here!
What is the perfect romantic date?
A candlelit dinner at one of my restaurants.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish. And if I was, I’d never admit it.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Freshly baked bread. It reminds me of a certain baker who’s constantly on my mind.
When you look at a woman, what catches your interest?
Her intelligence. I look deeply into her eyes, then peruse the rest of her body. In my experience, large breasts do not automatically equate to large intelligence.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
I’m hoping. Or I should say, I’m confident I can win her over. I think.
What is one word that best describes her?
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
The author saved the best for last with me. Really!
My cousin Dex starred in book two (Served Hot), and our friend Jack had book one (Served Cold). But my showdown with Riley has been building for years. Finally, it’s my turn to show everyone why I’m so taken with one stubborn pastry artist.
Thank you Anson for coming for a chat. You are just delightful … and yummy
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the chat with Anson.
Childhood rivals since grade school, Riley Hewitt and Anson Black have always tried to one-up the other. She’s pretty, smart, and focused. He’s arrogant, handsome and unbeaten. When Anson leaves town right after high school, Riley focuses instead on her grand passion—baking.
Fast forward a few years and she’s thinking of expanding her profitable business when her nemesis returns and decides to build his own restaurant—right next door to hers.
With the help of a large bottle of wine and her two best friends, Riley decides to get even with Anson. He’s still smug and annoying. But worse, he’s drop-dead sexy to boot.
A competition will prove who’s best, once and for all. But spending time together means getting to really know each other. Before long, Riley’s falling for the handsome entrepreneur, and her plans for revenge pale in comparison to how she feels about him.
But if she tells him she loves him, will that put the win in his column? If he doesn’t feel the same, she’s definitely going to lose. And she’s not sure she can afford to have her heart trampled on. Second place won’t cut it this time around.

Here is my review: “Such a good finish to the series, Riley and Anson’s story is sweet and hot. They are the third couple of this trilogy who will get their HEA and the journey there is hard at times, hilarious scenes mixed with some fan-your-face-so-hot ones makes a great mix under the pen of Marie Harte, one of my fave authors who I can say that I haven’t read a book from that I didn’t like. Loved the way we get to know Anson better, whom we met in the previous two books where he came across as arrogant and know-it-all, who loved to be a thorn in Riley’s side… or that was the impression he gave. Riley is as competitive as ever and thru a last competition to show who is best, Anson gets her and she gets to see the man beyond the facade he shows to the world. They had me laughing at their bickering and my heart melted when they finally told each other that they are in love. *sigh*” 5 stars
