-- A USA TODAY best-seller --
Chocolatier and town newcomer Luke Bradford loves his shop's new home. Mostly because it means he gets to do his new favorite thing every day, which is to lock horns with the feisty beer-brewing beauty next door, both business-wise and otherwise.

But to be fair, in his defense --

Just kidding. He has no defense.

Brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson is declaring war against her hot, maddening new menace of a neighbor. And his shop. He absolutely started it. She's just picking up the chocolate-covered gauntlet he unintentionally threw down.

The terms? Her business versus his in the arena of romance.

The stakes? Very likely, her heart.

"Violet Duke always writes such compelling, delightful characters who manage to pull you in and make you feel a part of their lives." -- #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy 

Be forewarned, this book is definitely sweeter (and longer) than my other books (but there is still some on-page steam, as well as a few curse words--no f-bombs though, per usual). A book about a brewmaster and chocolatier battling over Valentine's Day supremacy? Yep, it was a given I was going to go all-out on the feel-good romance for this one. :) So if you're in the mood for a light and fun love story (with some of my token laugh-and-cry Violet Duke-ness, of course) between two stubbornly romantic characters who work hard for their happily ever after, this is the book for you! xoxo ♥ V

Love, Chocolate, and Beer [Luke & Dani]

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

    Loved the book. And all The charters. Loved the story line and the happy ending. Can’t say enough.
  • Luke is awesome!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This is book one in the Cactus Creek series and it features Luke and Dani. It started out as a Valentine’s Day competition but turned into so much more. These two weren’t throwing off sparks. They were throwing off FLAMES! Luke wears his heart on his sleeve. Dani, not so much. She’s got MAJOR issues! After reading the whole book, I understand more about that. It just wasn’t easy watching Luke do all he did and get nothing but resistance back from her. He’s such an awesome guy! When all was said and done, so much more was at play. The story line is fantastic and had great flow! The characters are amazing and I would love to be friends with them in real life. I was so invested with what was happening to each and every character, my emotions were all over the place. I loved it! I would have liked to know more about Quinn and her son because they were such a huge part of Luke’s personal and business life but I guess that will have to wait for book two.

    Great story line but does get a bit convoluted at times and difficult to follow. Still recommend reading
  • Totally unrealistic, but fun to read

    By 1 Banker
    I enjoyed the story of Dani, the brewmaster, & Luke, the chocolatier. There was a LOT of sexual banter between them that was fun. The sex was certainly given lots of pages, but was not nearly as explicit as it is in many books & for that I was grateful. Still there were plenty of places in the book that could have been improved with the less is more approach.
  • A Love Story To Enjoy

    By TexasMan39
    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.😊
