SOME LIKE IT HOT
Sous chef Melanie Marchand is the rebel of the venerable clan, and she's locked horns repeatedly with executive chef Robert LeSoeur since he was hired to run Chez Remy's kitchen. That hasn't stopped Melanie from fantasizing about him, but she has no intention of finding out if reality measures up to her hotter-than-hot imaginings -- until she realizes Robert wants her just as badly. They really are combustible together, but Melanie's sworn off serious relationships after a youthful divorce -- and she senses that even conventional Robert has secrets that could burn her if she lets him get too close. Lori Wilde serves up a delectable mixture of snappy dialogue; deft, layered characters; and genuine sizzle in Some Like It Hot (4), the strongest Hotel Marchand title to date. Bon appetit!
