When hard-driving CEO Rick Nordan arrives in Lobster Cove under strict orders from the family doctor to take a break, he discovers the rental house comes with a family attached, including one sexy dynamo of a caterer. She’s nothing like his ex-fiancée who wouldn’t sign a pre-nup, but maybe that means she’s the real deal and not a gold digger.
Maya Cruz wants life for her widowed mother to get easier by renting out her house during the summer. But teaching Mama business means explaining Rick isn’t a “guest,” he’s a “customer.” And the first thing Mama does is invite Rick to join their family activities.
Having Rick around wouldn’t be so bad if Maya didn’t find him so attractive. The last time she fell for a vacationing millionaire, she had her heart broken.
She swore off his type, and he’s not looking, but this might be a recipe for love.
“I’m sorry,” he said.
Oh, so the way to get Rick to apologize was to let him win? Now there was an interesting twist. She stuck out her hand. “Truce?”
He nodded but didn’t let her hand go. Instead he pulled her close for a kiss. For a moment she drank in his scent, which was a subtle spice, like Earl Grey tea.
“What did you do that for?”
“I didn’t have any other defense.”
“A kiss is not a defensive move!”
“What about this?” His firm tug landed her against his chest.

About Lobster Cove
Lobster Cove is a fictional small town on the coast of Maine, near Bar Harbor. It is quaint and quirky with a colorful history, a friendly population of charming residents, and a vibrant tourist business. It is home to research scientists and small shop owners, grumpy cops and sassy chefs. Back in the day, it was a bustling fishing town and home to many immigrants, from both the state cabins and the lowest decks.

I really liked Love Caters All. It had a bit different premise than other books. Maya started to rent her Mama’s house to help make ends met. They normally would not be around when the “customer” arrives but – Mama sometimes is hard to get out of the house. Rick arrives ready to relax ~ he is not prepared to fall in love – but does he? or does Maya hold him at arms length? I couldn’t put Love Caters All down once I started, it held my interest to the end!
