Prince Of Granola by L.A. Sartor



Watching Anthony Bourdain on TV as he explored an exotic white cacao plantation set me on my journey to pen Prince Of Granola. I learned an amazing amount of information about the cultivation and harvest of this vital bean. After all, without it, we don’t have chocolate. And while the white cacao bean doesn’t make white chocolate, despite its name, it is deeply flavored, pure and very costly. Perfect for a rivalry.

I had a great mentor show me how to make chocolate, from grinding the beans to adding the right amount of sugar and how to temper it. It’s a complex art, and I loved watching the masters create gourmet, small batch chocolate.

 While this book is currently the only book in the series, I’ve been getting feedback from my readers on which two characters they want to see next. Please let me know once you’ve read it.






The fabled Costa Rican Plantation of White Treasure, source of the rarest form of Cacao bean, is up for sale. Though two fierce competitors have been invited to bid on it, only one can win.

For Drew Hopkins, purchasing the plantation is the perfect solution to escape a life she never wanted.

For Robert Prince, it’s the perfect route to revenge.

Drew, the founder’s daughter and now CEO of HH Chocolates, heads a company whose sales are waning. Robert, CEO of Prince Organics, a man driven by excellence, despises everything labeled Hopkins.

But it wasn’t always this way.

Will their forced proximity at the lush and exotic plantation rekindle old flames, or will it fan the fires of antagonism?


About the Author:
I started writing as a child, really. A few things happened on the way to becoming a published author …specifically, a junior high school teacher who told me I couldn’t write because I didn’t want to study … urk …grammar.

That English teacher stopped my writing for years. But the muse couldn’t be denied, and eventually I wrote, a lot, some of it award winning. However, I wasn’t really making a career from any of this.

My husband told me repeatedly that independent publishing was becoming a valid way to publish a novel. I didn’t believe him even after he showed me several Wall Street Journal articles. I thought indie meant vanity press.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I started pursuing this direction seriously, hit the keyboard, learned a litany of new things and published my first novel. My second book became a bestseller, and I’m absolutely on the right course in my life. Email me at I’d love to hear from you. My website is My books are there as well as a signup for my mailing list.
