Romantic Times calls Laura Florand's writing "sensuous and sumptuous", awarding her their Seal of Excellence, and NPR says it's "explosive, sensual . . . and utterly sweet".
Now Florand offers up another tale of passionate chefs and the lengths they will go to for the women they love and gives a first taste of her new series, La Vie en Roses, with Turning Up the Heat. When two people have loved each other so much that they've given up their very selves, what do they do when they need their selves back?
Married as teenagers, Daniel Laurier and his wife Léa have done everything for each other. And when Daniel comes home from a consulting trip to find his wife has run off to Tahiti, he may not know what is wrong, but he knows one thing for sure: he's not losing her. And as a top chef, he knows exactly when to turn up the heat.
