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.


After reading The Unidentified Redhead, it’s safe to say I’m a total Alice Clayton fan.

I love that she writes female characters that aren’t ashamed of wanting to have sex.  And her humor and quick with make the journey pretty dang entertaining at times.

I loved Roxie.  She’s independent and knows how to get things done.  I don’t care for the grudge she holds for her mom at times, but I think at some point we all have an issue with our parents.  And good gravy, LEO!!!!  I swear if the farmer’s market in my area had farmers like him, I’d probably go more often.

The story was fast paced, steamy, and full of laughs.  I enjoyed every bit of it, and I can’t wait for the rest of this series.
