One Hot Chef….
Eric Vail has always loved a challenge. After leaving the Navy, he mastered his passion for cooking. As the sous chef at Top, one of Dallas’s hottest restaurants, his skills are pushed to the limit every night. Unfortunately, his ultimate prize still eludes him. Server Deena Holmes is the sweetest thing he’s seen in forever, but she’s as distant as she is beautiful. When they’re put together in the same training class at the infamous club Sanctum, he knows this is his shot. And this former SEAL never misses.
A Woman Who Lost Her Taste for Love…
Deena thinks Eric is the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, but her heart has been burned too many times before. She’s sworn off relationships for good and she can’t trust herself with a man that easy to fall in love with. She takes a spot as a trainee at Sanctum in the hopes of finding a safe place to explore and experiment. When she discovers her partner is the same chef she dreams about every night, Deena knows she may have bitten off more than she can chew.
A Perfect Recipe for Passion
While exploring the world of Sanctum, Eric and Deena find themselves learning about each other and finding an intimacy neither expected. But when the ghosts of her past resurface, old wounds are reopened. Can their newfound love survive when it’s put to the test?

This was a very enjoyable novella. The main characters were employees at Top(Sean's restaurant): Eric and Deena, but we got to see some of our favorite McKay-Tagart people(Iaaaan!).
Eric is an ex-SEAL who didn't know what to do with his life after leaving the Navy. He found cooking and he's loving it. Now he wants to find that perfect someone. He's reliable and sweet and a great bet.
Deena is a divorcée whos husband fucked over. She manages to put herself through school while working a full time job and she doesn't want to have anything to do with men beside sex. It doesn't work well for her because Eric totally set his sights on her.
There were some misunderstandings, Deena being stubborn and a bit stupid, but all is well when it ends well :)
