Publisher's Summary

"I do not think I want to be married at all. I want to be rich. Very rich…."
When Henrietta Bascombe opens a confectionary shop in order to turn her pittance of an inheritance into a fortune, her friends are shocked to hear of such a well-bred lady going into trade. The earl of Carrisdown is both drawn to and repelled by her shop-girl status.
Undaunted, Henrietta proceeds to hang out the traditional confectioners' sign of a golden pineapple and soon finds a set of beautiful women in her employ, drawing the attention of Earl of Carrisdown's younger brother and best friend. Distressed by the situation, the Earl makes it his mission to put Henrietta out of business. But he looks forward to tangling with the fiery sweetshop owner more than he's willing to admit.

Romance with controlling/verbally abusive swain

I normally love M.C Beaton's romances. But found myself screaming at my phone for the heroine Miss Bascom to run the other way when the hero proposed by threatening to beat her. Not sure how this could ever be considered "romantic" even in the early 1900's. With spousal abuse so common this made me want to throw my phone.

Romantic Confection

Delicious characters, novel plot, interesting background setting in a Regency confectionary all add up to a delightful tale well told.
