Their attraction is sinfully delicious…
A struggling business and one act of vandalism may have brought them together, but bakery owner Chloe Nelson and professional hockey player Griffin Lange get along like chocolate and pickles. Chloe needs the famous (and famously unattached) Griffin to attract people to her pastries, and Griffin needs the curvaceous and fiery Chloe to keep him out of trouble. A fake relationship to keep the media interested seems like the perfect plan.
But when temptation throws them into bed together, a new plan arises. Why not make the fake real? Griffin’s winning every home game, and Chloe’s business has never been better. Both know it’s only physical—and only temporary. But can they drop their defenses for love, even if it means getting a little bit sinful?
Robbie Terman began her journey as a writer in third grade, when she completed her first (24-page) “novel.” Many years later, she is published in contemporary romance. Her heroines are feisty, her heroes Hot (yup, that’s with a capital H!). And, when you read her books, if you cry a little and laugh a lot, that’s just the reaction she was hoping for.
When she’s not writing, Robbie can usually be found doing one of three things: shopping for shoes and handbags at Nordstrom; trying a new restaurant (or attempting a new recipe); or relaxing on the couch and catching up on her favorite television programs (if you’re wondering which ones, open up a TV Guide and take your pick. You’ve probably guessed right!).

Top ten things you don’t know about me:
1. Cotton or Silk?
Silk in theory, but cotton in practice.
Champagne for celebrations, but wine for every meal…er, every day.
Plotter! Knowing where my story is going is a must. Otherwise, who knows where I’d end up!
4. Describe your workspace
I’m kind of a neat freak, so I don’t keep very much on my desk – just my computer, a lamp, a bucket of pens (yet, oddly, no paper to write on), and my cat. The cat isn’t by choice, but he refuses to leave. Apparently he has a story to tell, or that’s what it seems when he’s meowing non-stop while I try to write!
5. Sports fan or just tolerate it?
I’m a huge hockey and baseball fan (Go Red Wings and Tigers!). I love going to games in person, but it is probably better that I usually watch at home. There are less people to hear me screaming obscenities.
6. Who is your biggest influence on writing?
My critique partner, Elizabeth Heiter. She and I have known each other since we were little and we’ve been each other’s support through the whole crazy writing and publishing process. She’s made me a better writer and a stronger person (which you have to be in this industry!).
7. Favorite food –
Hamburgers. I could eat them every single day for every meal and not get sick of them.
8. When did you start writing?
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write. My earliest memories are going to work with my mom on a Saturday and typing stories on the typewriter (wow, that just dated me). In third grade, I wrote my first 24-page “novel” and from that moment I told everyone I was going to be a writer when I grew up.
9. If money were no object, where would you like to live?
Someplace hot! Michigan winters are way too cold for me. I would love to live on an island where I could overlook the ocean while I wrote.
10. What’s next for you?
Book #3 in the Perfect Recipe Series, Jenna’s story. I’m really excited for this book. Jenna has very specific plans for her life, and I really mess them up! Luckily (although she would say unluckily), her former high-school sweetheart shows up to help her pick up the pieces.
