JUST DESSERTS



Released 27.07.2010 by Samhain Publishing

Book 1 in the Table for Two series

Synopsis:

French chef Luc Tessier is five-star successful. His cookery program on TV is rated as high as his restaurant, and casual flings are his specialty. The only stain on his toque is Daniel Sheridan, an English food critic who has made it his business to ruin Luc’s reputation.

The only way to clarify this particular pat of butter is to invite the critic to dine and bury the hatchet—preferably in Daniel’s back. The moment he lays eyes on Daniel, however, Luc’s thoughts turn from sauces to seduction.

Daniel definitely finds Luc appetizing, but he plays it cool. He never wants to be anyone’s toy, ever again. Yet in the face of Luc’s relentless pursuit, he’s finding it harder to keep the flamboyant chef at arm’s length.

A cooking competition on a remote Scottish island seems the perfect way to put some distance between them. Until Luc shows up to compete, determined to win not only the trophy, but Daniel’s heart…

SECOND HELPINGS



Released 30.11.10 by Samhain Publishing

Book 2 in the Table for Two series

Synopsis:

French chef Luc Tessier once thought his world-class cooking skills—and cleaver-sharp ability to strike sexual sparks—had won him the ultimate prize. The heart of his beautiful English boyfriend, food critic Daniel Sheridan.

Little did he know the battle had only just begun. And now his most formidable foe has just shown up on their doorstep. Daniel’s mother. With Daniel still firmly in the closet and determined to stay, the chance that Luc will get laid any time soon is deflating faster than a failed soufflé.

Daniel has learned to deal with Luc’s natural arrogance and domineering tendencies. What he can’t handle are the repercussions, real and imagined, of coming out before he’s ready. Hence his nightmare task of juggling his nosy mother and his horny lover under the same roof.

Seven days is a long time for anyone to be on his best behaviour, much less a Frenchman who’s only a touch away from one desperate goal—his lover’s bed. But getting what he wants could come at too great a cost. Daniel’s trust.

THE LAST SUPPER





Book 3 in the Table for Two series

Released 29.03.11 from Samhain Publishing

Synopsis:

Speak now, or forever lose your love…


Luc Tessier finally has all the ingredients of a perfect future assembled. His beautiful English fiancé, Daniel, on his arm, five hundred wedding guests on the way, and the honeymoon suite reserved.

Now if only he can get Daniel to stop obsessing over last-minute details. So what if the date is set for Friday the thirteenth? After all they’ve been through to get to this point, what else is left to go wrong?

Plenty, starting with Daniel’s sudden determination to “save” himself for marriage. How does a healthy, hot-blooded Frenchman fend off a bachelor party stripper with one arm while trying to beckon his lover closer with the other—and not go insane?

Daniel wishes he had it as easy as Luc, who’s already finished preparing the extravagant menu. Between contending with a jealous best man, a spiteful mother-in-law, a bad haircut and Luc’s frustrated libido, Daniel’s ready to have a nervous breakdown of failed-pressure-cooker proportions.

Forget making it to the church on time. If they make it through the thirteenth without someone ending up face-first in the wedding cake, it’ll be a miracle…

Synopsis:

Opposites attract in the most passionate of ways.

Rhys thinks the man is uneducated, only to find him reading classics. He expects him to behave like the criminal he is, only Darren doesn’t.

They are wrong for each other on so many levels, yet rejection only makes the need greater…
