When her husband died in combat two years ago, Liz Anderson returned to Angel Bay, the small-town where she grew up, to heal her broken heart. She doesn't think she'll ever find a love like that again, but leave it to her best friend to set her up on a blind date. Oh, she'll admit he's gorgeous, but he's a single father…and ten years her junior. She's ready to write him off, but this hot young chef is awakening her long-dormant passion.
Luc Rossi's priorities changed on a dime six months ago when he suddenly found himself a father…to a three-year-old daughter he never knew. With a restaurant to run as well, his life doesn't have room for love. But when his coworker plays matchmaker, he can't deny the awkward encounter with beautiful and charming Liz peaks his interest.
An offer to teach her to cook leads to a steamy fling. It's only supposed to be sex, but this gorgeous older woman makes Luc wonder if it's time to open his heart again. If only he can convince Liz to give their relationship a chance beyond the bedroom…
