Sarah Grant is holding it all together after the accidental death of her husband, the same accident that left her with a disabled child. She’s doing a pretty good job of it, too, until her son gets a new therapist. While Mr. Miller is full of unrealistic—and possibly dangerous—ideas, he’s also incredibly attractive. Driven by guilt, she’ll never let anything bad happen to Sidney again. Unfortunately, the more she’s forced to deal with Mr. Miller, the more she remembers she’s more than just someone’s mom. It’s hard to focus on getting the man fired when she’s set aflame whenever he’s around.
Zachary Miller didn’t expect his forced retirement from the military to be easy but dealing with Sidney’s mom was more than he’d bargained for. He’d faced down the enemy in combat and survived, but this woman could oppose anyone and win with her cool, no-nonsense gaze. She’s a force to be reckoned with even while she makes him want to forget the scars that define him. He’d bet good money that under her ice queen façade burns a fire ready to illuminate the dark future that terrifies him and keep his demons at bay. Maybe Sarah Grant and her son are exactly what he needs to pull himself into the light.
Can Sarah and Zach leave their broken pasts behind and find healing in each other?
Amylynn Bright was reading well before kindergarten and has had a book in her hands ever since. In fact, she once swallowed a bug while walking home from school because she was too busy reading.
Is there anything more pathetic than a food critic who can’t cook? That’s Holly Darcy—secret socialite, wannabe author, lousy chef and “The Covert Connoisseur.” Feeling like a fraud for critiquing restaurants when she can’t boil a pot of water, Holly joins a cooking class for beginners…and quickly cooks up serious chemistry with the sexy instructor.
Mark Bennett was born to be a chef, but his foray into restaurant ownership fell far short of his dreams thanks to a scathing review from The Covert Connoisseur. Now teaching is the closest he will venture into a kitchen. Luckily the job comes with an unexpected perk: the attraction simmering between him and a curvy, clever writer with pinup-girl looks.
Flirting over pasta soon leads to passionate kisses and a sizzling relationship. But how can Holly be honest about her job when Mark blames his restaurant’s failure on her review? And when Holly’s secret is exposed, how will Mark be able to forgive her for ruining his life?
