More About the Author

USA Today bestselling author of the Bachelors of Blueberry Cove series, Donna Kauffman has been gratified to see her books get rave reviews in venues ranging from Kirkus Reviews and Library Journal to Entertainment Weekly and Cosmopolitan. She lives in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in western Virginia, where she is presently applying her crafty DIY skills to decorating her new mountainside abode. Well, when she isn't busy trying to keep the bears from hanging out in her flower and vegetable garden all day and night! With her new Brides of Blueberry Cove series, Donna's been having a blast applying those same restoration and design skills to doing some fictional wedding planning. Of course, if that means haunting all those lovely antique shops and flea markets that are so plentiful in her new neck of the woods, well, it's a sacrifice she's willing to make. When she's not finding ways to take her love of all things rustic and vintage and give them a fabulous seaside, coastal Maine wedding party twist, she loves to hear from readers!

Quotes & Comments for her Bachelors of Blueberry Cove Series:

"Witty dialogue, sexy heroes, Donna Kauffman's a must-read!"  --New York Times bestselling author, Jill Shalvis

"Charming characters, emotion galore, a small town--you're going to love Donna Kauffman!" -- New York Times bestselling author, Lori Foster

"Sweet, sexy, and sigh-worthy, this small-town charmer takes readers back to tiny Blueberry Cove and launches a linked miniseries that promises to be as entertaining, character-rich, and emotionally engaging as its predecessor, The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove. Kauffman (Sandpiper Island) lives in Virginia near DC." - The Library Journal for SEA GLASS SUNRISE, Brides of Blueberry Cove Book #1

 "A touching romance that offers healing and redemption to two lonely hearts who fall into a love they don't even realize they're looking for. The first of a series, the book introduces a quirky community and secondary characters with enough personality to make readers want to come back. A light romance with a touch of heat, a pinch of intensity and a dash of mysterious small-town magic." - Kirkus Reviews on PELICAN POINT (Bachelors of Blueberry Cove Book #1)

"Kauffman's second Bachelors of Blueberry Cove contemporary (after Pelican Point) explores themes of home, family, and belonging in a warm, positive story filled with deep-hearted, articulate characters who learn to trust as they open themselves to love. Charming Irish shipbuilder Brodie Monaghan spurns the adulterous advances of Cami Weathersby. She takes her revenge by selling off a portion of his family's shipyard property for the price of the back taxes. Despite his anger at Cami, Brodie is quickly charmed by the buyer, Grace Maddox, who intends to respect the history of the boathouse even as she turns it into a inn. The romantic arc hits a perfect mix of lust, affection, and playful humor. Even more notable are the sincere, insightful, and low-tension friendships between Grace and architect Langston DeVry, and between diner owner Delia O'Reilly and Grace's estranged brother, Ford. Strong character ties between past and future books make the series unusually cohesive and give the tiny Maine town an emotional sense of place despite little attention to the scenic locale." Publisher's Weekly (Bachelors of Blueberry Cove Book #2/HALF MOON HARBOR)

"Kauffman's third visit to endearing Blueberry Cove, Maine (after Half Moon Harbor) solidifies the idea of the whole town as a quirky family. Blueberry Cove's inhabitants love one another even while they're process their own insecurities, and they prepare to fight the caricatured evil rich developers and those who want to sell out the town's charm. Military veteran Ford Maddox thinks he's content, quietly living in an isolated island tree-house at the seabird research station. When his baby sister, Grace, asks him to reach out to Delia O'Reilly, whose family's beloved diner is about to be turned into a yacht club, he realizes that to help Delia, he'll have to face the enduring emotions from their intense tryst 20 years earlier. An emergency rescue of adorable baby puffins gives Ford and Delia the time to develop mutual trust, bridge the gap between platonic comforting and hot sex on a ladder, and realize that they've been yearning to call each other family. Kauffman's stories show that the bravery to reach for a connection is all we need to discover joy; she excels at expressing the struggles and joys of giving in to love." Publisher's Weekly (Bachelors of Blueberry Cove Book #3/SANDPIPER ISLAND)

"Humor, heart, and characters you wish lived next door." -- New York Times bestselling author, Mariah Stewart

"Donna Kauffman's sexy, fun, and moving Pelican Point is a five star winner!" Emsy Van Wyck, Fab Fantasy Fiction

Quotes & Comments for her Cupcake Club series:

STARRED REVIEW! Publishers Weekly PICK OF THE WEEK! (Cupcake Club Book #1: SUGAR RUSH)
"Leilani Trusdale spends 10 years training with charming but tough chef Baxter "Hot Cakes" Dunne, taking over his New York City pastry shop when he leaves to host a cooking show. When she finally escapes the city to open a cupcake shop in her father's tiny hometown of Sugarberry Island, Ga., Baxter turns up, natch, to start his show's traveling season, with a secondary agenda of romancing Leilani. The tension leads Leilani to revive her old bake therapy sessions with her best friend, Charlotte, adding Leilani's quiet new assistant and a lovable town gossip to lend support, share opinions, and add sugar as members of the Cupcake Club. The ladies of Sugarberry will be delightful companions to look forward to in future stories, and readers can bake along with the included cupcake recipes."
~ Publishers Weekly

"Sugar Rush is a playful, sensual, laugh-inducing read. But there's so much more to the story. Kauffman's book chronicles profound character growth and offers layer upon layer of authentic, life-changing conflict. ... it's a good thing Sugar Rush is only the first in a series, because the residents of Sugarberry -- especially the delightfully oddball members of the Cupcake Club -- will lure you back to their island again and again." -
-- Kathy Altman, USA Today/Happily Ever After

"Fans of cupcakes and TV chefs will like this first installment of the Cupcake Club back-to-back romance series that comes with recipes. For those looking for more, not to worry -- this isn't a light, spun-sugar tale. It has more substance, like a rich chocolate ganaches. The suprorting characters are delightful and one hopes they will appear in future books."
-- 4 Stars, Joyce Morgan, RT Book Reviews

"I can't get enough of this new town, characters and the romances that have bloomed and will continue to bloom in this new series."
-- Lush Book Reviews

"It's like blending the Food Network together with CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC..."
-- (4 Hearts!) Megan, Book Brat Reviews

"A fun romantic read for the serious baker, the not-so-serious baker, and the buy-your-cupcakes type of reader (like me)!. Kudos to the first Cupcake Club Romance with recipes included at the end!" ~ Valerie Burleigh, Romancing the Book Reviews

"This is a delicious story about true love and cupcakes that is just as sweet as any treat but won't ruin your New Year's resolutions! The characters are great and there's even a few recipes of delicious cupcakes to try (those might ruin a few resolutions, though.)" ~ Amy Phelps, Parkersburg News and Sentinel

"Kauffman writes crisp, emotionally charged dialogue... Sugar Rush is a sweet, delicious romance fortified with mouth-watering cupcake recipes." ~ Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines,

"SUGAR RUSH is a quirky, fun tale with Leilani and Baxter learning to really get to know each other while surrounded with several eclectic characters that provide for some humorous interaction. The chemistry between Leilani and Baxter is slow to grow at first, but once they kiss, their attraction for each other begins to smolder out of control. Will they make it work? Find out for yourself in the delightful SUGAR RUSH."
~ Patti Fischer, Romance Reviews Today

"Donna Kauffman has brought a sugary sweet romance in her latest, Sugar Rush. Set on a small, rural Georgia island with lovable quirky townsfolk, this novel delves into the age-old question, "What the heck are men thinking?" It's a fun read with lots of yummy goodness thrown in and a sexy romance to drool over while eating that forbidden cupcake."
~ Lani Roberts, Affaire de Couer magazine

"Romantic fun, lovable leads, and surprising emotional complexity in both the main relationship and the supporting deep friendships make this quick return to the tiny Georgia island of Sugarberry (after Sugar Rush) a deliciously warm and feel-good read... Kauffman describes her characters' internal monologues and thoughtful conversations with an eloquence that makes them feel like the reader's best friends. Contests and cupcake recipes will keep fans eager for Kauffman's next sweet treat."
~ Publishers Weekly

"This is only the second book in the series but I can tell this is going to be a promising one. Kauffman touches on trust, desire, friendships, and a promising new love that just needs a little tlc to grow into something amazing. The emotions behind the characters were a big part of the story that kept me intrigued and wanting to find out more. Every single character made this story more than enjoyable but also delightful. I can't wait until book 3 comes out. I am excited to see who will be next to fall in love in the town of Sugarberry."
-- Lush Book Reviews

Sweet Stuff is the second edition of the Cupcake Club novels and is hilarious from start to finish. Riley has the body of Marilyn Monroe, wild, curly blonde hair, the girl-next-door face and the klutziness of the Three Stooges. She's absolutely adorable and gorgeous author Quinn Brannigan thinks so, too. Throw in a small pony-sized dog with a tendency to drool and drop logs on your toes, and you have a romance made in heaven-as long as you carry lots of Band-aids."
~ Lani Roberts, Affaire de Couer magazine

Format: Paperback
This is an anthology that revolves around the three of the four Chisholm brothers. These three Scottish brothers are Brodie, Reese and Tristan.

"Bottoms Up" is Brodie's tale. Brodie is a charming pub owner who dropped out of college to come back to the town he has grown up in. His best friend since grade school is Kat. Kat is one of the local mechanics and is more at home in coveralls playing darts for money than in dresses. The one exception to this is that she has loved Brodie for years, but she doesn't know what to do about it. Daisy Mac moves to town and Kat is instantly jealous of her and what she sees as Brodie paying attention to her. But, Daisy is looking for another friend her age and she and Kat hit it off. Daisy convinces Kat to let her "make her over" which leads to Brodie finally seeing her as a woman.

"On Tap" is Reese's story. Reese is a strong and opinionated man. He runs the family distillery the way he wants to and doesn't take much input from others. But, when Daisy Mac approaches him to promote the distillery on the internet he sees something else he wants more. He wants Daisy, he seem to think of anything other than that he wants her. In the end he decides to let her build the website as it will give him access to her. While both are drawn to each other it takes a while for them to act on it.

The final story is Tristan's. In "Night Watch" you meet Tristan who many in the family think is wasting his time being a sheephearder. But, he loves his job and the fact it gives him time to think and paint the local scenery. He is a serious romantic but no woman has found a way into Tristins heart. Along comes the novelist Bree Sullivan.

Bottoms Up

Kat Henderson works as a mechanic along side her father in their small town of Glenbuie, Scotland. An American has recently graced their town and her name is Daisy MacDonnell. Kat is convinced that Daisy has her sights set on Brodie Chisholm and she is sure that Brodie doesn't mind at all. Brodie owns and operates his family's tavern Hagg's. He and Kat are close friends but Kat wants so much more. Kat doesn't think Brodie will ever see her as anything but his tomboy best friend though.

As Kat prepares to battle for Brodie she encounters a surprising ally and she heads over to Hagg's eager to capture Brodie's attention as a woman instead of a friend. Brodie is shocked.

Kat and Brodie are afraid of losing what they have with each other, but if one of them doesn't make a move, they'll never know what else could be between them.

Bottom's Up is very romantic. With breathless anticipation, I waited for Brodie and Kat to make love and that moment is incredibly arousing. The sexual tension, Kat's vulnerability and sweet nature, and Brodie's sexy Scottish bur all combine to create a very heartwarming and passionate story. I didn't want it to end!

On Tap

Reese Chisholm keeps himself very busy running the distillery his family owns. He has almost no social life and he is fine with that.

Daisy MacDonnell has come to their small Scottish town to run her aunt's stationary store. Daisy also has a flare for marketing and she is interested in promoting Reese's distillery. Reese wants to leave well enough alone but when he first sets eyes on beautiful Daisy, his flustering and uncharacteristic reaction to her baffles him.

Bad Boys in Kilts by Donna Kauffman introduces us to three hot and sexy Chisholm brothers.

Bottoms Up has barkeep Brodie Chisholm charming the local lasses since the day he was born. He doesn't realize that his best friend Kat Henderson has had a secret crush on him for years. When she thinks another woman has caught Brodie's eye, Kat decides to shed her tomboy ways and so Brodie what he has been missing. Brodie has always cherished Kat as a friend but when someone makes him realizes he can have so much more Brodie can't get the thought out of his mind. This is a delightful sexy romp of friends turned to lovers. The pool table scene is a scorcher.

On Tap is brother Reese Chisholm's story. Reese runs the family distillery. He is faithful to the tried and true ways of old. When a sassy American Daisy MacDonnell shows up with her Internet and fancy marketing ideas, Reese thinks he can just humor her and send her on her merry way. He wasn't ready for a kick-start to his heart with just the first look at Daisy. Daisy had come to Scotland to slow down her hectic life. She had no plans for mixing business with pleasure. But one look at Reese and all bets are off.

Night Watch is younger brother Tristan's tale. Tristan is happy tending the sheep and painting the local scenery. One raining night he rescues runaway author Bree Sullivan. Bree has had overnight success with her book and feels like her life is out of control. The offer to hide out at Tristan's farm is tempting and so is the sheepherder himself. Tristan and Bree both learn that things can be just as simple as falling in love.

Bad Boys In Kilts is as scrumptious tale of the Chisholm brothers. It's hot, sexy and funny. Each story is a delight. Hopefully older brother Dylan's story will be coming soon.
