Meet the Editor... Elisha Reed loved working at her lucrative publishing house. On a daily basis, she wrestled with the literary world's divas and won. Her sterling reputation was the icing on the cake. Yes, Elisha knew the essential ingredients of life:
1. Remember the editor is always right
2. Know how to throw a party in fifteen minutes
3. Stay positive no matter what....

So when her world spun out of control, she had no choice but to attack life in a different way, using different ingredients. Suddenly with two cranky teenagers to care for and a take-no-prisoners author on her plate, Elisha couldn't disappear in the bliss of a triple-layer confection...unless she brought out several forks. She decided to start from scratch...and from here on in, it would be a piece of cake!

Another excellent Next novel. I found the heroine and the plot believeable, except for the fact that the love interest was a hard-as-nail former SEAL with a tragic past, which is I guess where the Harlequin influence slips in. But as usual, Next transcends the usual Harlequin fantasy to introduce a heroine who is realistic and faces events that are true-to-life.
