**A sizzling debut novel starring a sexy TV chef who steams up more than just entrees...**



*She wasn't his kind of dish-until someone turned up the heat...*



Celebrity chef and infamous ladies' man Bryce Ryder can't believe the thoughts he's having about his old friend Jenna McCabe. She's always been the shy girlnext- door, but when some bad publicity threatens everything he's built, Jenna gets down to business- and shows a side of herself that is take-charge and totally irresistible.

Acknowledgments

Special thanks goes to my awesome editor, Tracy Bernstein. I learned a lot from you, and thank you for

your time and excellent edits. What a pleasure it was to work with you, and what a joy it is knowing we

will be working together again. You really helped make this book live up to its title!

One

“I likemywomen the way I like my recipes: fast, easy and full of variety.”

There was a pregnant pause, followed by a raised brow and a flash of blue-green eyes above the spine

of the glossy magazine. “Did you really say that?”

The look that greeted him from across the table momentarily gave him pause. Then he smiled, turning on

the renowned charm that now came automatically to him. “Of course not.”

The brow went up again—a challenge—before her gaze lowered once more to the magazine. “The sexy

chef was then overheard saying, ‘Mar riage? God, no. The only housewives I’m into are the ones who

tune into my cooking show hoping to add some spice to their dreary lives. Ihave to likethem . After all,

they’re the ones who’ve made me rich.”

Again with the questioning brow. This time, though, there was an unavoidable air of disapproval as she

stared him down. “I did not sayany of that,” he exploded.

“But you did say the first bit, about how you like your women?”

Bryce felt his face heat up. “OK, I said that. But not the other part. I wouldnever say something so

demeaning.”

“Because it would cost you your career, or because you don’t really feel that way toward the poor,

overworked housewives the world over?”

Tossing his napkin onto the table, Bryce slid deeper into the plush velvet seat of the booth. He surveyed

his dinner companion, not entirely certain he knew her.
