News / March 15, 2013

This week we’re offering up a healthy dose of romance in the form of hot-blooded cowboys, sensual chefs, and sex club sinners. Not necessarily in that order! ALL THE WAY   First up, Jennifer Probst‘s ALL THE WAY packs a one-two punch in the form of one fired-up, sexy, Italian chef and an unrealized love that got away: What is it about chefs… Food critic Miranda Storme gave up on ever seeing Gavin Luciano again. Nor did she actually want to, not after their steamy, intense affair ended before it could begin three years ago–when he bolted. Now he’s back and Miranda has the pleasure of offering the restaurateur a little well deserved payback…in the form of a scathing review of his restaurant. After all, what is it they say about revenge? Revenge is a dish best served…the first chance you get! Gavin has three months to turn his family’s struggling Italian restaurant around and make it a success. A bad review is his worst nightmare come true. But, Gavin knows this isn’t just about a failed meal, and knows what he must do. Realizing his mistakes, Gavin is determined to spend the next eight weeks proving himself to Miranda…

While true for all of my books, it was definitely true when I wrote HER KNIGHT’S QUEST. I knew Duncan, the hero, would be travelling alone to a distant abbey. I knew the heroine, Lady Lavinia, would be there. But starting out, I didn’t know anything about the sisters who lived there–not even their names. I was aware there was a young girl living at the abbey, but I didn’t know why and certainly never expected to have Sarra play…
