Something sure looked tempting, and Chase knew it wasn't on his restaurant's menu. His new neighbor Jessica Claiborne was as deliciously enticing as the confections she created--so enticing, Chase was finding it difficult to concentrate on anything but the curve of her lips.


Jessica couldn't deny the heat that sparked

This is part of the highly enjoyable and extensive Westmoreland series. Jessica Claiborne left her law career to follow her true passion of cooking. She moves from California to Georgia to open a chocolate shop and to hopefully clear the name of her deceased grandfather. He was accused years earlier by his best friend, a restaurateur, of stealing secret family recipes and selling them to a competitor. Jessica has no
Chase Westmoreland's siblings have married and now all eyes are on this dreamy restauranteer. Business is good and the last thing Chase needs in his life is a serious relationship. That was his mantra until he laid eyes on Jessica Claiborne, his new neighbor. Jessica is opening a bakery two doors down from the highly successful Chase's Place.

After a rocky start, sparks fly and Chase makes it clear that he will never marry because his trust in women was ruined by a previous relationship. He deman
The Truth

Chase Westmoreland finds himself where he vowed never to love. Happy Endings have been foretold by the author yet she continues The Westmorelands in fresh and intriguing adventures that causes the heart to soar.
Another winner for the Westmoreland's. Chase Westmoreland is not happy with the owner of Delicious Cravings because of the chaos it's creating in the parking situation for his restaurant, Chase's Place. Jessica Claiborne has apologized to the other businesses, and they've been understanding. Chase wasn't when she came to apologize and offer him some of the treats she makes.
Chase takes Jessica a peace offering, a generous special of the day from his restaurant. The Sparks between them every time
Chase was trying so desperately not to give his heart away that he did not see Jessica coming in to put his heart on lock. Jessica was not looking for a relationship when she moved to Atlanta but to vindicate her grandfather's name. However, Love has a mind of its own.

Brenda Jackson took no prisoners in spinning this love tale with a dash of mystery imposed. The book read like poetry and as always the love scenes tastefully written but still have you crossing your legs while reading. Loved it!

The Chase is On is one of my favorite Westmoreland books. There is just something about a man who knows his way around a kitchen, that gets to me. This book is about finding out the truth and writing some wrongs. The characters were lovable and engaging. The storyline kept me on the edge of my seat, and the romance, made my heart melt. Once again, Brenda Jackson always provides an excellent read, that will leave a lasting impression on you.
Secrets can cause a relationship to take a nose-dive. Chase Westmoreland, owner of Chase's Place and Jessica Claiborne the new kid on the block of Delicious Cravings are attracted to one another when neither one of them wants to recognize it. However, Jessica has is on a mission to prove her grandfather's innocence, but wind up falling in love with the enemy, Chase. Another wonderful Westmoreland love story.

I thought Chase was going to be the smooth talking man just waiting to fall in love. He was but he did come off the top with all the wrong words ticking Jessica off. When he realized what he'd done he was quick to put it right but she was doing a little too much. She should've told him what she was up to and it would've saved them a ton of mess. In the end it was really good.
Chase Westmoreland is FINALLY burnt by the flames of love. The instant and HEATED attraction between Jessica and Chase sets the pages of this novel on fire. I enjoy the camaraderie and loving bond the Westmorelands continuously displays towards one another throughout this series. Mrs. Jackson delivers another quick, spicy, romantic treat.
Lady Raven RAVE!

Chase & Jessica made the cutest couple he was her dinner she was his dessert. I loved the dialogue between them when they first met. I was happy Jessica was able to clear her grandfather name. It was a very cute book to read.
Loved it! If you're a Brenda Jackson fan, then you know her books are always great. I finished this in less than a weekend. I received it as a Christmas gift on Saturday and was finished on Sunday afternoon.
Very good story, and what's better than a man who can cook? I enjoyed this book. Brenda has done it again!
