NEVER RESIST TEMPTATION
"I can resist everything except temptation."
Beautiful, spirited Jacobin de Chastelux would have been the perfect prize for any man ... but she never imagined one would win her at a game of cards! When she learns that her dissolute, dastardly uncle and guardian had wagered her virtue--and lost--she flees. A cunning disguise and her culinary talents land her in the royal kitchen as a chef. All is well until her uncle dines with the prince and is poisoned by one of her pastries. Jacobin must escape again ... to the home of the very man who won her in that infamous game!
Lord Storrington knows nothing of the true identity of the new cook. All he knows is that things are heating up--and the sparks aren't coming from the stove. A delicious ecstasy tempts the scoundrel and the chef ... one that can only end with sweet, sweet surrender.
On the run from a murder charge, Jacobin has found a job as pastry cook to Anthony, Earl of Storrington. He is unaware that his new cook is the same young woman he won in a card game with her uncle. Busy in the wee hours, preparing delicacies to impress her new employer, she is discovered by the earl who wanders into the kitchen during a sleepless night.
