If you can't stand the heat...
Lam Draeger’s deep wounds from the death of his young son and his
subsequent divorce were still healing when he was saddled with his
running his family’s cattle and rodeo stock ranch and the
responsibility of raising his siblings and keeping them out of
trouble. His every moment is devoted to running the ranch and business
smoothly. He’s had no time to mourn his many losses or try to rebuild
his personal life. And romance? Out of the question, no matter how
sweet the temptation.
...don't fall in love in the kitchen
Single mom Gwen Hobbs is right back where she swore she’d never be –
cooking in the kitchen at the Draeger ranch just like her mom before
her. But since her fiance and the father of her daughters walked out
on her, taking all their savings with him, she’s forced to be
practical. So she vows to ignore the attraction that hums between her
and Lam and to stop dreaming of becoming a chef. But when Lam suggests
she audition for a cooking competition, Gwen realizes that not all her
dreams are out of reach, and her growing hopes extend far beyond a
professionally tricked-out kitchen.
