Laurel McBane has always relied on her friends for support, especially when her dream of attending culinary school was almost ruined by her parents´ financial problems. Now Laurel is repaying the kindness of her friends by creating extravagantly luscious tiers of cakes and other confectionary delights that add the perfect touch to their clients´ weddings. As for romance, Laurel believes in it - in theory. But she´s too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that other women seem to long for. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker´s older brother, Delaney Brown, on whom Laurel has had a mega crush since childhood.
