Author Louisa Edwards has whipped up the perfect reader
treat in her foodie-meets-romance CAN’T STAND THE
HEAT (St. Martin’s September mass market paperback), in
stores now. To celebrate the release of Book 1 in her
Recipe for Love series, the debut author will send one
lucky winner a signature CAN’T STAND THE HEAT apron,
A Recipe for Love spatula and a $50 Macy’s Gift Card.
For sharp-tongued food critic Miranda Wake, the chance to
spend a month in Adam Temple’s kitchen to write an expose
is a journalistic dream come true. Surely Miranda can find
a way to cut the hotshot chef down to size once she learns
what really goes on at his trendy Manhattan restaurant.
Trouble is, she never expected Adam to find out her most
embarrassing secret: This critic has no idea how to cook!
And he knows just how to satisfy her cravings . . .
Adam’s not about to have his reputation burned by a critic
who doesn’t even know the difference between poaching and
paring. He’ll just have to give the tempting redhead a few
private lessons of his own—teaching her what it means to
cook with passion.
