Would too many cooks spoil the broth? Against her better judgment, Lynn Blackburn had hired arrogant, argumentative Reed Graham as chef for her Ogunquit, Maine, seafood restaurant. How could she know that overnight he'd take it upon himself to spice up the menu, jeopardizing the conservative image that was her pride? And now he wanted a partnership. He wanted to spice up her life! If there was one thing Lynn thought she didn't want, it was a man to distract her from making important decisions about her future. But Reed's eyes devoured her. His mere presence was absolutely delicious. It was tempting, yet their tastes clashed--so how could she choose Reed, choose love with no reservations?
