Why I read this book?
At my favorite BB, every one was talking about Jessica Bird. She also writes paranormal romance as JK Ward. I like that book, and this one didn't disappoint. In fact, I read another book of hers called The Billionaire Next Door, and it was a small book with a big impact!

This is the beginning of a trilogy. It's a story about Frankie and Nate. Nate reminds me so much of Josh Holloway. The way he talks, he sounds just like Sawyer in LOST. Although he's (Nate) is one kick-ass chef.

If you're really not into reading romance, I recommend this book. If you're not into reading at all, I recommend this book. If you don't have time to read, I recommend this book.

There's a good review for this over here.

Why I read this book?

I read The Tea Rose first. It was such a wonderful book. I cannot NOT read the next book. In fact, I have to send for my copy from England because this one is not coming out until next month here in the US. I am crazy for this book. I'll probably buy the set when the last of the trilogy comes out and gift it to my sister. I've never enjoyed a book so much since Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, or The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons and the likes.

I recommend this book. Yes, it's thick, but it's really worth it. It's well-research and the story is just plain out of this world, in the very best way.
