Thank you for stopping by!
Please look around and have some fun, but first I'd like to introduce you to:


Featuring Andi, Rachel, and Kim, three women who follow their dream to open a cupcake shop and find sweet romance!

Sprinkled with Kisses The Cupcake Diaries

Fans of Debbie Macomber will adore the fifth installment in Darlene Panzera's sweet Cupcake Diaries series … a tale of sand, sun, and summer love!

Stacey McIntyre thinks she'll pay off her debt in no time when Andi, Rachel, and Kim ask her to manage Creative Cupcakes' stand on the beach. But selling cupcakes isn't as easy as it seems. Especially when Dave Wright, the handsome owner of an ice cream truck, proves he's as determined as the dive-bombing seagulls to take away her sales.

Dave's done with dating and done with beautiful, headstrong women like Stacey. Then the refrigeration system in his truck breaks, and instead of gloating, Stacey helps him out of a tight spot … and is rewarded with a kiss.

Now Stacey isn't sure where they stand. Will Dave push her back into the role of rival? Or can she convince Mr. Wright that working together will lead to sweeter rewards?

SETTING: the small seaport town of Astoria, Oregon, located near the mouth of the Columbia River, is surrounded by the beauty of the forest, mountains, three rivers, and the Pacific Ocean. Referred to as "a little San Francisco on the hill." Astoria has a working waterfront with bustling docks, Victorian architecture, a restored 1913 riverfront trolley with a one dollar fare, an eclectic mix of fine restaurants, cafes, art galleries, antique stores, and of course - a hip little gourmet cupcake shop named
"Creative Cupcakes."

Sweet Contemporary Cowboy Romance

Darlene has written several short stories and novellas (see Books page), but her career launched when her novella, THE BET, was picked by Avon Books and NY Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber to be published inside Debbie's
Family Affair.

"Darlene reminds me a lot of myself when I was attempting to get published many years ago. Eager and energetic, willing to sacrifice to pursue her dream. I am honored to have played a small part in her success."  —Debbie Macomber
