Jenny Eton’s Mess – Anna Sugden
What’s better on a lovely summer’s evening than a decadent dessert that includes chocolate-covered strawberries and takes a couple of minutes to make?! In A Perfect Trade, Jenny makes her signature dessert — her special version of an English dessert called Eton Mess (which she picked up from reading her beloved, imported celebrity magazines!). If you don’t have chocolate-covered strawberries, you can use fresh strawberries and add broken up pieces of chocolate or chocolate sauce to the mix.

A win-win negotiation?
Truman "Tru" Jelinek’s life is pretty much off the rails. With his professional hockey career on thin ice, and his personal life falling apart, he’s ready to implement some serious changes. Helping Jenny Martin—the only girl he’s ever loved—make her dreams a reality is a good place to start.
There’s just one problem: Jenny doesn’t want his help. She barely wants to speak to him. But Tru is prepared to negotiate a deal that even Jenny can’t refuse. As trading favors turns into sharing passion, he has to face the truth that when it comes to Jenny, the game is far from over.
