He’s gorgeous but grumpy
When reclusive celebrity chef Kit Morton finds a woman sneaking around his neighbor’s house with a camera, he’s annoyed to find himself attracted to the turquoise-haired intruder. He has a cookbook to write and doesn’t have time to deal with the mystery of his neighbor’s disappearance or Ellen the ‘house-sitter’ who is out of her depth. He ought to call the police or keep his distance. Instead, he can’t stop thinking about her.
She’s conspicuous, cheerful, and in a lot of trouble
Suddenly homeless after a social media disaster, Ellen lucks out with two months in a country cottage by exaggerating her animal care experience a tiny bit. How difficult can it be? But when she turns up, there’s no owner, no instructions, just a handsome, arrogant man with a kitchen knife. Worse still, every time she makes an embarrassing mistake, he’s watching.
When the heating goes kaput at Ellen’s borrowed house, Kit grudgingly invites her over for hot food, hot showers… and hot sex. They have to get it out of their systems quickly because he hates publicity and she’s desperate for fame. And Kit’s neighbor is due back at Halloween…
A scorching hot enemies to lovers, opposites attract, small-town British romance with heart, humor and banter.
