Romance Contemporary

Bad-boy chef Wes Murphy dreads his final semester cooking class—Food Chemistry 101—until he meets the new substitute teacher. Dr. Rosemary Wilkins is a feast for the eyes, though her approach to food is strictly academic. Wes decides to rattle her Bunsen burner by asking her for hands- on advice on aphrodisiacs . . .

Wary about working with Wes (his casual flirtations make her a little too hot under the collar), Rosemary nonetheless agrees to team up . . . in the classroom. Soon the two are testing the love-enhancing power of chocolate and strawberries, and it becomes scientifically evident that the brainy science nerd and the boyish chef have concocted some delicious chemistry together.

Re: Just One Taste

Just about half way through Just One taste, i don't want it to end a long time before next book! Agatha P. Townsend-Great reading so far, heroine Rosemary you can't help but love her!
(Agatha Townsend 8:03pm September 2, 2010)

I absolutely love the culinary theme. This is a new author to me & I'm dying to pick up her book & read it. Has anyone actually tasted strawberries & chocolate? My boss gave me some a few months ago & they were deeeeeeeeelicious!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading your books Louisa! Keep up the good work.

Ciao For Now,

It sounds like so much fun!

I got the New Generation Kindle for my birthday too and it arrived on Tuesday. I'm already loving it!!
Jill Hayden 12:46pm September 12, 2010)

Birthdays are fun, no matter how many!
Marjorie Carmony 1:13pm September 12, 2010)

Would love to come to Rita's and Readers, but TX is a bit far for me to come. Let us know how it goes. The need to have a weekend on the east coast:)

I'd like to know how you like your new Kindle. I'm thinking of buying an ereader for my mom, so I'll be asking everyone I know with one what they like/don't like about them.
Amanda Reeder-erdly 1:25pm September 12, 2010)

B-days still enjoy them! Conferences sound like so much fun... maybe one day I will go to one!
Colleen Conklin 1:47pm September 12, 2010)

We used to have a little romance conference here in Germany, but it stopped...boohoo. If I were to try and get over to America for a conference, I'd need to win the lottery...hehe!!!
Valerie Bongards 2:02pm September 12, 2010)

I still love holding a book in my hand. Call me old-fashioned! Have a fun time at the conference! I have never been to one but sure would love to sometime!
Michele Rioli 2:41pm September 12, 2010)

I'm thinking of attending the RT in Los Angeles. Don't know when it's going to be since this is my first conference. I'm looking forward to it.
Kai Wong 2:44pm September 12, 2010)

I never see any conferences in Michigan. I don't have a kindle, I like my books, I can read books on my net book but it isn't as much fun. Happy Birthday! Thanks for the contest!

I don't think that I will be able to try to attend one of the conferences until at least year after next. Both due to lack of time and saving for other goals at the moment. I get to live the excitement vicariously though through the descriptions from others.
G. Bisbjerg 3:42pm September 12, 2010)

I hope you enjoy your e-reader as much as I do mine.
Vickie Hightower 3:47pm September 12, 2010)

Love my books,hope I win.
Deb Pelletier 4:36pm September 12, 2010)

I would love to go to a conference but none of them are held anywhere within a decent driving distance. My hubbie calls me a techie but you wouldn't know it because I don't have any of the latest gadgets. I am the one in the household that hooks everything up and gets it running and keeps it running!

My cell phone is just that: a phone. No flashy extras, just to make a call. I wouldn't have that if it weren't for DH. Everyone else has one now; if I have an emergency, I'll use there's. No e-reader either. I love my books! Give me books! I want to SEE and FEEL my books!
Cynthia Netherton 5:35pm September 12, 2010)

sounds fun!
Raelena Pavey 5:59pm September 12, 2010)

I would be very happy to meet any or ALL of my favorite authors. No such luck though.
Mary Preston 6:02pm September 12, 2010)

I love books but I want a Kindle too.
Cheryl Lynne 6:38pm September 12, 2010)

I don't have any plans to attend any upcoming conferences, but I would like to someday.
Jane Cheung 6:51pm September 12, 2010)

Mmm... Beside you I would love to meet Nalini Singh, I love her books.
Diane Sadler 7:52pm September 12, 2010)

I like the new technology. But, my husband calls it a Barbie Doll. You buy the doll on sale and then you have to buy every thing that goes with it. Our old wireless router is now out of warrenty and doesn't work with the new computer he just bought!
Karin Tillotson 10:43pm September 12, 2010)

It would be so much fun to
attend a readers conference!
I enjoy work conferences, but
sometimes the workshops can
make you wish you were back at
the office. How exciting it
would be to attend a
conference for fun!
Jessie OLeary 11:04pm September 12, 2010)

The conferences sound like a lot of fun, but they're not even close to my area. There are too many authors to list here that I'd love to meet. Their writing intrigue me. As for technical gadgets, although they peak my interest, I prefer my good old laptop and my land line. They've been pretty reliable up to now, and I know how to work them, without having too much added information.
Peggy Roberson 7:36am September 13, 2010)

I would love to attend a readers
conference, but no luck yet. There are
some 5 to 7 hours away, but no luck
getting to one yet. Maybe some day
Patricia Barraclough 2:47pm September 13, 2010)

I would love to attend readers
(and writers) conferences. Is
there a way to find out which
are most (handicap)accessible?
When we win the lottery I plan
to travel a LOT. I am lucky in
that we live in an area that
has many fascinating
conventions (a Steam Punk Con
is only one town away from
home) but no local
readers/writers cons I have
been able to discover.
Diana Troldahl 7:59am September 15, 2010)

Congratulations on making friends with your e-reader. I tend to go to events in town like booksignings put on by indie bookstore or the library. Listening to the authors read their own print and tell about how they chose that direction helps me understand more about the craft and art of writing.
