Cherri Barratt is not at all adventurous. When she meets Rafael Mercada, a Cuban plantation owner, she is only looking to buy a box of cigars for her father’s birthday. Rafael turns the purchase into a whole new erotic experience for her, giving her an appreciation for cigars and adventure that she never thought possible.

Rafael seduces Cherri into his world and she falls more and more in love with him each day, even though he never fully makes love to her. He is also holding secrets, which he does not share with her and she wonders what he could be hiding. Then she meets Luca Reyes, Rafe’s long time friend, and gets answers to some of her questions. . When Rafe leaves for home, the sense of loss she experiences makes her realize that she wants him in her life forever.

Three months after they first met, she is on her way to Cuba to visit Rafe’s family’s plantation. Her remaining questions are answered when Cherri arrives in Cuba and she has to determine where she fits into Rafe’s life, but she knows that he is the only man for her.

I will never look at a cigar the same way again. The scene in Rafael’s shop with the cigar is too sensuous for words. An Acquired Taste is a delightful book. With wonderfully written and well-developed characters, the author shares a unique take on love.
