Seared (Cooking Up A Celebrity Book 1) by Hadley Harlin @hadleyharlin

Buy on Amazon

A doe-eyed virgin, a smoking hot rival, and a global cooking competition with millions of viewers. What could possibly go wrong?

My overprotective Italian mother would drown me in holy water if she knew I applied to an international cooking show—or how dirty my mind truly is.

Now, I’m Paris bound as one of eight contestants.

I know I’m one of the best new chefs and soon the world will know it, too.

The only thing standing in my way is a tall, growly, bad boy chef with more tattoos than skin.

He’s brilliant in the kitchen and so smoking hot I’d probably need a pair of oven mitts to touch him.

Not that I’d want to. The last thing I need right now is a distraction.

But he’s currently looming in my hotel room with a proposal.

My knowledge of Italian cuisine in exchange for his German sausage.

Sweet Mary, Mother of God, that’s a lot of sausage.

Seared is a sizzling romantic comedy featuring a slow-burn romance between two rivals trying to balance their powerful desire for each other with their intense will to win. HEA and no cheating, it’s a full-length, stand-alone novel that’s perfect for those who love fine food, celebrity chefs, reality TV, and sweet and sexy romance books!

Hadley hides out in her vegetable garden, penning steamy romance novels that would make her organic neighbors blush redder than a radish. If they knew. She also dodges frequent requests to join her kids’ PTA board meetings to make room for her other hobbies. In her spare time, Hadley loves skydiving, funky red wines, and Harley-Davidson bikes, hopefully in the same day. Just kidding. Drinking while skydiving would be dangerous.
