Exciting Tiems are Here Again

Been remiss with blogging, I know. Even my food blog is suffering from lack-of-attentionitis but on the bright side, I’m elbow deep in a new story that I’m crossing my fingers, can come out within the year. Wish me luck in finishing?

And in other news, here’s something we’ve been cooking up the past few months:

Exciting tiems are here again.

The Kitchen When it Sizzles Blurb

Slogging though a new manuscript, but I need to take a break. Unfortunately for me, my idea of a break is working on other book related stuff.

So here, I’m happy to share the blurb for my upcoming book, The Kitchen When it Sizzles, a NA contemporary romance.

Olivia Nadal is an almost perfect girl with an almost perfect life. She has stunning good looks, an exciting job that pays well, men lining up to date her, and a homey little condo she calls her own. The only thing keeping her from perfection is her utter inability to cook.

Enter Nate Olivarez, a hotshot chef who’s filling in for Olivia’s cooking instructor. Sparks fly when they meet, but a fling with the visiting hottie is the last thing Olivia needs. But as things keep heating up in the kitchen, she can’t help but wonder. Can things work out between her and Nate? Or is the sizzle all set to fizzle?

It’s not quite as sweet as All’s Fair in Blog and War, but I’m hoping you guys will find it just as engrossing. I’m hoping to get it out this month, so expect me to share a few more things about it within the next few days or so.

(PS. Made a GoodReads page for #KitchenSizzles. Add it up if you’re interested?)

The gorgeous Japanese-Brazilian model who caught Ginny’s fancy and Elaine’s heart captivated us throughout the whole writing process. (We love you Marco, but ABS!)

Even during the earliest stages of brainstorming, when the idea of creating a character who was a male model came up, there was one name that stuck. Daniel Matsunaga.
