-- A USA TODAY Bestseller --
Cactus Creek's most romantic eligible bachelor, new-to-town and new-to-singlehood chocolatier Luke Bradford believes in old school romance, fighting wars waged over love, and deploying his dimples whenever an impossible-to-resist woman instigates it. But for once, this serial monogamist is trying not to platter up his heart to get stomped on for a change. That’s the plan, at least. Until he locks horns with the feisty beer-brewing beauty next door, that is. Soon, driving the woman sparking nuts becomes a wickedly fun priority he simply can’t get enough of.

In his defense, she’s addictively easy to incite…and plain impossible to resist.

Cactus Creek's award-winning brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson can’t believe how good her maddeningly distracting new neighbor is at pushing her buttons. It’s bad enough the unjustly gorgeous man comes locked and loaded with sexy flashing dimples and charm for days. But using all his chocolate-covered romantic idealism—not unlike the kind her heart’s been shattered by before—to start a chocolate vs. beer feud right in her backyard? The nerve of that man. Inexplicable, downright combustible chemistry between them or not, damn it, this means war.

At stake? Very likely, her heart.

This is hands-down the most over-the-top of all my books (past, present, and future) in the sweet and mushy romantic department. A book about a brewmaster and chocolatier battling over Valentine's Day supremacy? Yeah, it was a given I was going to go all-out on the feel-good romance for this one. So be forewarned, this is *way* sweeter than all my other books (probably combined). If you're in the mood for a small town romance with lots of smiles and two stubbornly romantic characters who work hard for their happily ever after, this is the book for you! xoxo

Love, Chocolate, and Beer [Luke & Dani]
Love, Diamonds, and Spades [Rylan & Quinn]
Love, Tussles, and Takedowns [Hudson & Lia]
Love, Exes, and Ohs [Isaac & Xoey]

All the Cactus Creek books are standalone novels with feel-good HEAs. :) Enjoy!


  • A Love Story To Enjoy

    You can read this love story slowly and enjoy it. You don't have to race through it. Don't miss enjoying reading it slowly.
  • Make this a movie!

    By Kshea92
    I loved this book, it was well written! This was my first Violet Duke book and I can't wait to read the others! It made me laugh, cry, and even made me stop and think about love and how we all celebrate different. Would love for this book to become a movie. ❤️
  • Loved It!

    By Izzibear
    This was my first time reading any of Mrs. Violet Duke's work and I loved it! I love the small kooky town and the caring characters in it. I especially love Dani. She's spunky with a very big heart. This book takes you through her journey of finding love and forgiveness. This book took me through a spectrum of emotions. If you haven't read any of Mrs. Violet Dukes books yet I recommend giving this one a try.😊

  • Love, Chocolate, and Beer

    By slowdownmom
    Reading this book seems it's far from being completed? I read the first two chapters and had no idea "still" what was going on? The introduction to the story was horribly done. By chapter 2 I'm ready to put the book down for lack of flow. The has no order.
  • Couldn't finish it

    By baseballgirl123
    I'm in the minority. This book did not hold my attention. Loved Luke. Their constant competition became childish. I quit half way through.
  • Beer and chocolate...what more is there!

    By Cr8fan
    Yet again, another wonderful book from Violet Duke! I have loved every book I have read from her so far! This book is in the Cactus Creek Series (which is an awesome series BTW). I love how Violet takes 2 people who are not likely to end up together and make them work! Who wouldn’t love a chocolatier though? Their love story is wonderfully written. There are sparks for sure, but not always the romantic kind. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
  • Repetition and long

    By MCNikko
    The book is long and didn't capture my attention. I don't mind a long book if it keeps me interested. It is a good idea, setting and characters but the author didn't told the story right. I was expecting something really good with all the good comments but honestly I was bored reading it. Something I hated from this book and happened a lot is when the author didn't tell you what the text message or sext message was or part of a conversation was not completed a a reader you want to know most of the things the characters say to each other. It was annoying, feels like the author didn't have enough imagination to complete the text messages. I don't recommend.
  • Sighs, Laughs, & Aw's

    I loved this story! The chemistry that Luke and Dani share is combustible! Their hilarious banter and very suggestive friends make this a fun read! With every turn of the page you don't know what you're going to get!!! I read it over and over again!!!!
