The Way to a Hero's Heart ...
Fiery, workaholic Lily Redman is sure of two things: that she knows good food and that she always gets what she wants. And what she wants more than anything is to make a success of her new American TV show, Celebrity Chef Swap - without the help of her cheating ex-fiance and producer, Patrick O'Brien. So when she arrives in Cornwall, she's determined to do just that.
Kenan Rowse is definitely not looking for love. Back from a stint in Afghanistan and recovering from a messy divorce and an even messier past, the last thing he needs is another complication. So when he lands a temporary job as Luscious Lily's driver, he's none too pleased to find that they can't keep their hands off each other!
But trudging around Cornish farms, knee deep in mud and meetings with egotistical chefs was never going to be the perfect recipe for love - was it? And Lily could never fall for a man so disinterested in food - could she?
Lily Redman aka America's celebrity chef 'Luscious Lily' has arrived in England to launch a new project, for which she needs a selection of chef's.
Kenan Rowse is back from Afghanistan and living back with his parents, who have volunteered him to drive Lily around whilst she scouts for talent.
As the pair are forced together, they discover a mutual attraction. But will this be an extra complication?
Lily comes across as a loud brassy American but as you get to know more about her character, you discover she is a lovely person.
Kenan on the other hand, although very handsome, he comes across as sulky and very brooding. But his family are concerned, he saw a lot in Afghanistan and they fear he may have PTSD.
Add into the mix Olvia, Kenan's money grabbing ex wife and Lily's manager Patrick who isn't everything he seems and you certainly have the ingredients for a gripping read.
Sugar and Spice is a deliciously enjoyable read, that will have you dreaming of Cornish locations and brooding men!
