After her husband's death two years ago, erotic romance author Liz Anderson moved home to small-town Angel Bay to heal her broken heart. So when her best friend fixes her up with a single father ten years her junior, she doesn't expect much. But this hot young chef is igniting her long-dormant passion.
With a three-year-old daughter to raise and a restaurant to run, the last thing Luc Rossi's life has room for is love. After his fiancée's betrayal, he isn't sure he believes in it anyway. His colleague's matchmaking attempt is awkward at best, but what can he do except play the gentleman? Liz ends up being smart, charming, and sexy, and he can't resist her.
An offer to teach her to cook leads to a steamy fling, but this gorgeous older woman makes Luc wonder if it's time to open his heart again. Can he convince Liz that giving their relationship a chance beyond the bedroom wouldn't be a betrayal of the past she holds dear?

When is it considered appropriate to move on when the person you made a vow to spend the rest of your life with passes away? Your spouse would want you to move on, to be happy, right?
That is what Liz and Luc are battling and J.M. Stewart perfectly captures that. Ms. Stewart beautifully captures the internal battle within Liz as she tries to move on, without the guilt. Luc is battling the same problem... but in different ways. They see in each other what they never had with their significant other. While they loved their significant other, neither one was ignited by the passion they feel for each other.
The characters, while well developed, aren't terribly complex. It was a quick read and heartfelt. It was well written with a steady pace. Perfect for anyone who wants a quick romantic read.
