Food journalist and chocoholic, Melanie Peters, lands a plum assignment for the top-rated Sexology website: Uncover what makes Sommer Chocolates so lust-worthy. Determined to get her hands on the coveted bonbons despite a year-long waitlist, she camps out on the doorstep of the world-famous chocolatier whose creations are reportedly “better than sex.” Melanie has never been satisfied by a man—but chocolate never lets her down.

Or make that, one intrepid reporter. Maks is intrigued when he realizes the woman who spent a rainy night on his doorstep has literally written the book on the craft chocolate process he is secretly studying. Melanie’s on a mission to uncover the source of Sommer Chocolates’ appeal. Is it the bonbons? Or will the sexy chocolatier teach her that the sensual indulgences are even more exciting than tasty sweets?
