Baked Inn Love, an all-new friends-to-lovers fake-marriage romance full of heat and swoon from bestselling author Erin Branscom is live now!
Single mom Allie’s only bright light is her son, four-year-old Caleb. When Allie is fired from her job, and Caleb’s previously absent father returns to fight for custody, she knows it’s time to leave San Diego. To get closer to her support systems, she needs to move across the country to her family inn in Freedom Valley, New Hampshire. Enter Logan Nolan, a handsome Canadian literary agent. When a good friend begs him to help bring Allie and Caleb home, he can’t say no. During the road trip, Allie and Logan realize they have something to offer each other: A marriage of convenience.
Before they know it, Allie and Logan live as a family in Freedom Valley. Allie, a passionate baker, starts her own business, and Logan learns how to balance his career with his new pretend family. Logan never saw himself as a family man, but as he spends more time with Allie and Caleb, he begins to rethink his views. Allie has always gotten by on her own, but with Logan around, she’s starting to wish her marriage was real, especially as Caleb’s father’s efforts to take his son intensify. Can Allie and Logan give in to their true feelings and turn make-believe into something real?

“I feel like royalty staying in a place this incredible,” I tell Logan.
He stands up and as he walks to the door, I notice he’s dressed comfortably like me, in blue jeans and his “I Love Hot Moms” t-shirt, wearing Nikes and a New York Yankees hat. He looks so good my heart skips a beat.
All I can think about is seeing him without his shirt on. Those muscles. So many muscles. Like, more than a human male should have. My mind wanders to what it would feel like to trace them with my fingertip. With both of us lying naked in bed. Just after the hottest sex either of us has ever had…
I shake myself back to reality. We have a mission, and sex is not on the agenda.
“What are you shaking your head at?” he asks. My mind races and I start to stall by grabbing my bags when my eyes land on his hat. “Well, first, I know you lived in New York previously, so that’s probably why you are making the unfortunate mistake of wearing that Yankee’s hat. But, being that you’re now living in the land of the Red Sox, we’ll have to add a new hat to our shopping list.”
Good catch, Allie. Phew.
“Oh, and nice shirt.” I smirk.
Logan looks at me and chuckles. “Let’s see how many people look at me and laugh today.”
“This is serious, Logan. Does Evan know you’re a Yankees fan? He won’t be happy about this,” I tease, trailing behind him with my bags. “At this point, I’ll have to offer you my protection on the streets of Boston if you continue to wear that hat around town. You know how Bostonians are… Very serious about their baseball. You’re not safe.” I shrug my shoulders at him.
I don’t miss the playful eyeroll Logan gives me. “I’m sure it’ll be fine.”
I laugh. “Right, we’ll see how that pans out for you.”
