About BUNS

Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….

Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.

It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.

Note: Although part of a series, each book in the Hudson Valley Series may be read as a standalone.

More from the Hudson Valley Series…

NUTS…

The New York Times bestselling author of Wallbanger and Rusty Nailed is back with Nuts, the first in a brand new series set in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley.

Roxie Callahan is a private chef to some of Hollywood’s wealthiest, and nastiest, calorie-counting wives. After a dairy disaster implodes her carefully crafted career in one fell ploop, she finds herself back home in upstate New York, bailing out her hippie mother and running the family diner.

When gorgeous local farmer Leo Maxwell delivers her a lovely bunch of organic walnuts, Roxie wonders if a summer back home isn’t such a bad idea after all. Leo is heavily involved in the sustainable slow food movement, and he likes to take his time. In all things. Roxie is determined to head back to the west coast as soon as summer ends, but will the pull of lazy fireflies and her very own Almanzo Wilder be enough to keep her home for good?

Salty. Spicy. Sweet. Nuts. Go on, grab a handful.

Cream of the Crop

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton brings her trademark blend of funny and sexy to this second contemporary romance in the brand-new Hudson Valley series!

Manhattan’s It Girl, Natalie Grayson, has it all: she’s a hot exec at a leading advertising firm, known industry-wide for her challenging and edgy campaigns. She’s got a large circle of friends, a family that loves her dearly, and her dance card is always full with handsome eligible bachelors. What else could a modern gal-about-town wish for? The answer, of course, is…cheese.

Natalie’s favorite part of each week is spending Saturday morning at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, where she indulges her love of all things triple cream. Her favorite booth also indulges her love of all things handsome. Oscar Mendoza, owner of the Bailey Falls Creamery and purveyor of the finest artisanal cheeses the Hudson Valley has to offer, is tall, dark, mysterious, and a bit oblivious. Or so she thinks. But that doesn’t stop Natalie from fantasizing about the size of his, ahem, milk can.

Romance is churning, passion is burning, and something incredible is rising to the top. Could it be…love?

Cream of the Crop: A New Favorite from Alice Clayton

Cream of the Crop (Hudson Valley, #2)Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After Hudson Valley #1, Nuts, I expected to love Cream of the Crop. But it was more than love this time around; it was adoration. I adored this story and it’s beautiful, quirky, funny, sexy characters. I adored Bailey Falls, even more than the first time, including Logan and Chad, Trudy, Roxie, Leo, Polly and everyone else who makes it so utterly relatable. I adored the story until my eyes filled with bittersweet tears, and I adored it even more when the epilogue satisfied my every need.

Natalie is everything I love in a heroine. I felt her passion, and her heartbreak, to the bone. Oscar is officially a god to me, firmly positioned (pun intended) among the best alpha-male, dirty-talking farm-boys of all time. I thought I loved Leo – and I still love him – but Oscar is my new addiction.

Thank you, Alice Clayton. You rock. You’ve always rocked, but you’ve really hit your stride with his new series. It’s funny in all the right places, sexy as hell, irreverent, and absolutely beautiful in every way. I never imagined myself getting all misty over farmers, cows, mud, cheese and nuts…but I never imagined them through your eyes. And now all I want is more.

I can’t say enough about this series, except Clara is up next, and I’ll be first in line.
