Sabrina Eckhart is losing it. Oasis, the restaurant she manages, is getting battered by a trendy newcomer, and with everyone looking to her for ideas, you could say she's under a little pressure. But wait, that's not all. Her evil landlady has given her until the end of the month to vacate her crummy apartment. And her thirtieth birthday is looming, reminding her of the milestones she's missed. No wonder she's distracted and driving off the rails...down the sidewalk, and nearly running over the man with amazing glutes.

Here's a recipe to share with friends. Take one prickly demonstration cook, handle carefully. Add one lonely widower, slightly beaten. Mix gently. Fold in two eight-year-olds, one at a time to temper the batter and avoid scrambling. Then finally, add the mother with an agenda—but just a dash because she's spicy. Whip into stiff peaks then spread over an ungreased sheet for best results.Piper Frost is taking a break from men when contractor Chad Thomas crashes her cooking class and turns on the charm. His persistence annoys her but she's already melting, even without his determined mother and twins in the mix. But just when things are really beginning to sizzle for the couple, Piper's ex blows back into town and things turn explosive. Is it too late to tell Chad she loves him? Would he believe it now or will the timing only create more doubts? Can she save her recipe for happily ever after or is it already ruined?Sensuality Level: Sensual
