New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery's blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past--and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires...
Restaurateur and self-exiled heir Lucien Lenault's first look at the breathtaking young chef trainee for his trendy Chicago restaurant is a shock. She's Elise Martin, daughter of a wealthy French fashion designer. She's also the holder of a secret that could explode his carefully laid plans.
Notorious for her flagrant exhibitionism, and for flouting the respectable façade of her aristocratic background, the coquine's wild streak shocked most people. Not Lucien. He was tempted by it. It was a deliriously punishable offense as far as Lucien was concerned. But taking on Elise is more than a game. She's a catastrophe waiting to happen, an inferno that's burned many a lover. Lucien isn't most men, however, and he won't allow her to manipulate him. In order to control the defiant beauty--in order to see her submit--he's going to have to willingly walk in the flames...
Each part I read just leaves me craving more- luckily I don't have to wait long.
I think I might have figured out why Lucien is interested in Ian- There are 3 things in this part that send out signals I am now excited to see if I'm right. If you are reading this series too comment below if you think you know too and we can exchange notes. I also am still getting annoyed with Lucien as he still thinks Elise is a spoiled, wealthily child- I can't wait until he finds out where she lives and her other big secret! She almosts get panicked when he wants to pick her up so I am not sure why he hasn't picked up on that yet. Not sex yet but lots of tension.
"What's a few crates of lettuce to him, when he gets to witness you turning his vegetables into certifiable sex fruit?"
"You breathe improper, Elise. You could make taking out the garbage an X-rated affair."
