Six Sentence Sunday--Into the Fire

It's time again to have a little six sentence fun.  Into the Fire releases October 5, 2011, and my excitement (and anxiety) is building. Until then, I hope to tempt readers with excerpts from this story about what happens when two chefs with a romantic past go head to head on a reality show. In this scene, Luke serves his meal to the judges, and the dishes are familiar to Shyann.


With the exception of the harissa, he had recreated the meal he’d made for her on their fourth date. It was melt-in-her-mouth delicious, and one of the reasons she’d begun to fall for him. Rarely was she impressed by other chef’s abilities, but he certainly had found a way with that meal. And with a rush of arousal, she recalled how the evening ended as well. The dessert had been unforgettable as he hand-fed the Bosc pear in a rose wine and persimmon sauce to her, then took the extra sauce and her to the bedroom. She was heating up just thinking about it.

Happy Writing!

I love the premise, am going to have to add this to my TBR pile. Great six! Love the mix of tension and reminiscence.

I like how she "heats up" thinking about his "meal."

Sex and food. Sounds like a good book!

Really great! I have to wonder, is it the food or the remembered experience that's heating her up? Maybe it's both. . .

Ooh… I'm suddenly very hungry.

...seduction through food... I like how intimate this dinner is for her, how it pulls her back emotionally to her past with him. Very clever :)

Sounds like he has a flair for food in every possible way. He's a tricky one, huh? ;)
