Primetime Princess and Unreal Candy Cookies
In Primetime Princess, Alexa Ross is a high-powered television executive and she's got the awards to prove it. When a former womanizing manager joins her network and begins to undermine her authority, she finds herself toppling in her expensive high heels. While everyone seems to be dipping in to her wealth of knowledge and the bowl of M&Ms sitting prominently on her desk, Alexa keeps climbing the corporate ladder. As long as she can keep her former boss at arm's length and her priorities straight, she just might make it to the top.

Pair This Book With: Unreal Candy Cookies

One of Alexa's colleagues calls her M&Ms "stress meds," but there's no need to stress over these tasty cookies packed with rolled oats, crunchy natural peanut butter and the special ingredient - Unreal Chocolate Candy Shells. Unreal mimics the classic colorful candy but do not contain corn syrup, artificial dyes or flavorings. Bake up a batch for your next staff meeting and your employees will be putty in your hands. less
