Beauty and the Feast : A Romantic Comedy
Eva Raines is an uncomplicated country girl who's all about food. Eva moves to the Napa Valley where her culinary skills come to the attention of the owners of a start-up and Eva finds her niche as a personal chef. Now all she needs is a man as perfect as her cooking, but she has serious doubts such a creature exists. When wealthy entrepreneur, winery owner, and noted lothario, Gabriel Abbott, makes plans to seduce his flavor of the month, his assistant hires All Things to All People to cater a gourmet dinner. Eva expects to use her way with food to showcase the startup. What she unexpectedly discovers is that her culinary skills showcase far more. Gabriel Abbott finds himself seduced by her voice and the sensual flavors and textures of her food and his previous plans are quickly forgotten. He begins to obsess about meeting his little chef in person. He's not alone. Once Eva hears Gabe's voice and spends time in his home in the Napa Valley, she begins to wonder about the real man and her dreams of him are so hot they could ignite a barbecue. When Eva and Gabe finally come face to face, the question is, how hot will their fire burn? Beauty and the Feast is a plain old fun romp through the Wine Country. I drew upon my own experiences as a personal chef - no I didn't meet Gabriel Abbott in person, but he sure came to life in my head. The book is delicious. Eva's a great cook and she's even given me some of her recipes - look in the back of the book!
