HOTTIE LUMBERJACK (Ponderosa Resort Romantic Comedies #4)


When Mark Bracelyn lumbers into Chelsea Singer’s cupcake shop with an ax, she’s poised to hit the panic button. But he fixes her door, praises her buttercream, and sends her skittish heart pounding like a hammer on a hollow log, so he can’t be all that scary. Chelsea’s sure there’s a gooey marshmallow center under Mark’s tough outer shell, though admittedly she’s been wrong before.

Mark may look like a grungy lumberjack, but he’s also the wealthy part-owner of Ponderosa Luxury Ranch Resort. The lone Bracelyn heir to avoid a childhood of fancy boarding schools, he stays hidden behind the scruffy beard and battered truck. But something else separates Mark from his siblings, and keeping his guard up means keeping his secret—and his family.

When someone threatens Chelsea and her daughter, Mark becomes their personal protector. When he’s not watching her back, he’s watching the rest of Chelsea’s body and warning himself not to touch. With danger mounting, they bond over phallic cupcakes and bizarre bunny behavior, while Mark battles his surging attraction. Can a sweet-toothed mountain man and a cautious single mom escape their histories, or will their hearts land on the chopping block?


     From the get-go, this book had me hooked.  This author's new to me, but I already downloaded the free book you get at the end.  She has such an easy flow to her writing.  The humor and sweetness of the characters all trying to find their place in this newly grown adult family is a hoot.
     She gives each character their time to share yet, she blends all these personalities through love, humor, and unity to make it all work.  These adult children of the late Cort Bracelyn may not have had the same mothers or grown up in the same state but somehow, they are in every sense a family.  Never once resent each other for coming into each other’s lives and having to share what little time their dad did give them, but any issues were always aimed at their dad.
     To me, I believe because they chose it.  To be a chosen family because they want to leave a better legacy than their father left behind.  Not that they didn’t love him they did.  They just want to make that forever choice, spread their DNA and not be involved with their DNA child in their future, but make it matter.
     This book is about six-foot-five, Mark he’s the one who always feels so different.  In looks, how he was raised, and not going to a refine college or boarding school like his siblings.  Even with all that he is living his dream, having a large family and siblings.  He could care less about the ungodly amount of money his dad left each of them.
     Mark looks like a lumberjack and grunts more than talks to most.  But with his siblings, he jokes with the best of them.  And boy, does he have a sweet tooth.  Knowing this his sister, who found her ‘one’, is on one huge mission to help her brothers find the same.
     She’s been hounding Mark to meet her friend Chelsea.  A single mom with a daughter Libby who is six.  Just, he kept saying, No!  But she knew she had him when she said she needed him to pick up the cupcakes she ordered at Chelsea’s cupcake shop.  The words ‘cupcake shop.’
     Not only is Chelsea beautiful she is into sweet food porn too.  Just the way she describes her cupcakes and new recipes and past ones also are orgasmic to him.  Most of all she gives him free samples.  Chelsea was sly and slips a business card with a note and her personal number.  And so it began.
     I give this:  5 stars.  Free on Amazon.  Follow us at
