One sexy fire captain. One Cajun chef. One combustible kitchen…
When chef Colby Robicheaux returned home to New Orleans to save her family restaurant, the last person she expected to reconnect with was her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. As tempting as a sugar-coated beignet, Jason is one dish she can’t afford to taste. Colby can’t wait to leave the place where her distrust of love and commitment originated and go back to Vegas.
Fire captain Jason Landry isn’t looking for love, either. Disillusioned by his past, he knows he should be focusing on finding the perfect mother for his daughter. But when he first sees Colby, all grown up and gorgeous, he can’t help but be drawn to her. And when she suggests a no-strings-attached fling, Jason can’t say no.
As their relationship grows more intense, Colby finds that Jason isn’t as easy to leave behind as she thought. Could turning up the heat on something real be worth the possibility of getting burned?
It is no secret that I love a good romance book and this one is one of the great. I was always fascinated with New Orleans so it was a real treat to read a book placed there. Now, Jason and Colby have chemistry that I rarely have seen so well described. You could actually feel it whenever they were close together. They find each other after years. She was his best friends little sister, so he never really saw her, and he was her biggest crush. After deaths of Colbys parents and a death of Jasons wife they both need to learn to let go of past and Colby also has to learn to forgive and forget although some things she can never take back. Jasons daughter is also a great character. She is cute and funny and brings a dose of humor to the story. There were a few times a laughed out loud, Taste the heat is a perfect blend of romance, chemistry and humor. Since we meet Colbys brother Cain in this book, and he intrigued me very much, I cant wait for his book.
Rachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, where she watched soap operas with her grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading her mama’s favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up way too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.
When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, she homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches reality television with her amazing husband. Taste The Heat is her adult romance debut. She’s the author of MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY and A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES. She loves hearing from readers! Find her at www.RachelHarrisWrites.com.
