When two people share tragedy and sizzling connection, things are going to heat up — and it’s got nothing to do with what’s going on in the kitchen. Edwards knows how to mix powerful men who have flair in the kitchen with ambitious, talented and sexy women in a perfect recipe of lust, love, loss and new beginnings. There’s a lot more going on under the lid than just sex, as Edwards examines how two people handle a personal tragedy and their feelings for each other.

Chef Henry Beck didn’t expect any problems with his latest kitchen challenge — a decade as a Navy cook on a submarine had to be a harder assignment. Until he finds out that his competition on the Rising Star Chef competition is the girl he married — and left — 10 years ago. The only thing Skye Gladwell wants from Beck is a divorce, so she can get on with her life and away from the man who ran from her when she needed him most. Beck’s thrown for a loop when his heart flips at the sight of the woman he left, but he’s got a counter proposition — she gets the divorce if she wins, but if his team wins the competition, he gets one more taste of the only woman he ever loved.
