Louisa Edwards, Guest Blogger
Thank you, Louisa!
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but I’ve always thought that the way to win anyone’s heart is to harness the sensual power of food. The bright gloss on a freshly picked strawberry, the warm scent of baking bread, the dense silk of dark chocolate mousse—nothing engages the senses and arouses emotion the way food can.
I started writing the Recipe for Love series to explore the link between food and romance—and to indulge my own desire for passionate chefs, delicious dishes, and happily ever afters. If you like Top Chef or the Food Network, and think there’s nothing sexier than a cute guy standing over a hot stove, then you’re pretty much my ideal reader!
In my debut, Can’t Stand the Heat, the hotshot chef of Market restaurant dares a food critic to spend a day in his kitchen only to find out she doesn’t know how to cook. The second Recipe for Love novel, On the Steamy Side, explores what happens when a TV chef is forced to reevaluate his life of fame, with the help of his son’s sassy Southern nanny and the crew at Market.
