A Cupcake Christmas (Touchstone Series #5)
Florian MacMillian needs a final job to complete his baking resume—preferably a job where he’s unlikely to blow things up with his unruly magic—before returning to the North Pole and taking his rightful place as Master Baker to all the elves.
Kate Delore desperately needs help in her fast-growing cupcake business. Florian is a perfect fit, so she brings him on as baker. For a short time, Florian is happily up to his elbows in batter, and Kate’s business is booming.
But when things heat up between them, Florian wonders if he should risk his legacy to cook up something truly special.

What Readers Are Saying
“I truly enjoyed it. I am a sucker for anything Christmas and Santa related which probably didn’t hurt. … Overall the story was light, charming and just right for a pleasant escape from the daily grind, kind of like a good dessert (yes, I love my sweets). I have to say this was my favorite of your romances I’ve read thus far…” — Beth Chapmon (Book Reviewer)
“I really enjoyed this story, it left me with a smile. It made me laugh, smile and feel good! Loved the Santa twist… totally unexpected! A good addition to the Christmas collection!” — Dodie Coe (Writer + Avid Reader)
“Did I feel attached to the characters? Definitely. Kate was cute, smart, and ambitious, cutting herself off and leaving me rooting for her to open up. Florian was mysterious, dark, and handsome and I obviously wanted more about him. That might just be me, though.” — Alex King, A New Reader to Romance
“In Beth Barany’s capable hands, you savor a delectable, charming, and captivating read. The story is romance, complete with sparkles of magic and joy, a well-wrought and captivating read.” — Louise F., on Goodreads

“Your deft, strong, individual writer’s voice is a pleasure…”
“I wanted to gush on more about the strong, sturdy structure, about the logical flow, about the incredible magical realism …
If I may be so bold, let me declare that your deft, strong, individual writer’s voice is a pleasure — and possibly the strongest and most confident I have come across in a very, very long time.
The pacing was fantastic — so well-done …
… how wonderful to find a writer who sees magic, grand adventure, marvels in everyday life!” — Louise F., reviewer
