A sexy, sugar-laden David vs Goliath story about a local bakery, a national chain, and what really matters.

Clover Loveday has worked hard to get her café Four-Leaf Clover up and running — her ticket out of an increasingly alarming financial situation and her dream come true. When she literally falls off her ladder into the arms of sexy-as-sin Liam Sinclair. The same Liam Sinclair who owns the new bakery being built just across the road...the new store by bakery chain Upper Crust owner! Clover decides then that no matter how nauseated she is about the idea, it is best keep your enemies close, rather than leave things to fate.

Liam has never put too much thought into the competition when he opens a new outlet, other than taking their customers and strengthening the Upper Crust brand. But here in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, Clover Loveday’s cafe is a little too close for comfort, and Clover herself a little too good-looking. So Liam asks his PA to put together a ’fact sheet’ about his new competition. He has a business to run, a father to please, and hundreds of people to keep in jobs. Surely information can keep an unwanted strong sexual pull at bay...

A sweet, caffeinated, satisfying story about unexpected temptations, forgiveness, and putting love before money.

REVIEWS:

'Four-Leaf Clover is an adorable romance. Clover is hardworking and everything she does is for her family! I just loved her! And Liam is a nice guy. Can't go wrong with nice and handsome. AND they are from Australia so I loved the book even more as I imagined them talking in their cute accents. *sigh* I wanted to drink coffee and eat sweets the whole time I was reading this. I liked the growth of the characters, the fact that they were honest with their feelings, and the compassion Clover has for her mother. I will recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick, sweet, romantic read.'

'Another huge like to Four-Leaf Clover! Yay! Clover has her own bakery business - Four Leaf Clover in a small Australian town; Liam wants to open his chain store across the street. It's baguettes at dawn! Even though they are rivals, they are still attracted to each other.Liam and Clover develop a deep love as the book progresses. Although the romance is sweet and tender, there is also a very hot and steamy side to “Four leaf clover”.There are many obstacles for them both to overcome considering they are in competition, but they do; and it is an adorable journey of finding love.I really enjoyed this adorable book. It is filled with the sweet smell of fresh-baked bread and ground coffee. If you are looking for a tender romantic read for an afternoon- escape to small town Australia with this book. You will be left with a smile on your face.'

'Amy Logg's review Apr 14, 14 4 of 5 stars Read on April 12, 2014 The romance: After only a short time together, both Clover and Liam start to see that they are attracted to one another, but their trust issues prevent them from fully committing to a relationship. Clover fears that she's just a fling to Liam, and Liam's concerned that she may just be after his money (a thought that is planted... in his head by his father). But overtime it becomes clearer that their are true feelings between them, and watching them learn to trust and fall in love was really sweet. The Writing: The story flowed very smoothly... I really enjoyed the writing style... I love sweet and fluffy endings. FINAL WORD: Four Leaf Clover was a really sweet and endearing story. With likeable characters and warm and friendly town setting, this book is perfect for any chick lit fan.'

Sparks fly between them, she finds out he is her enemy, in the hot flesh, Liam Sinclair.I enjoyed reading this story. It’s got tension between the two as both fight their demons while fighting their mutual attraction for one another. Not helping is Liam’s father who has a very low opinion of women, reminding him of a past mistake made (I really detested the father). I felt so good after reading this story, it’s taken me a few days before I’ve been able to start a new story."

 "I thoroughly enjoyed spending time in the pages of Four-Leaf Clover. I am very much looking forward to what Ms Ross has in store for us, the readers, in the future. Roz ~ My Written Romance's review Apr 30, 14 "
