Weekend Dirty Dozen for Into the Fire

Shyann and Luke are two professional chefs going head-to-head on a televised cooking competition.  This kitchen is too hot for TV.  We pick up where we left off last week.  (See last week's dirty dozen here)
And though they say revenge is best served cold, their relationship hadn’t been on ice long enough to chill her anger yet.
       She’d managed to avoid him most of the evening as she went through hair and makeup, but the earlier rehearsal was another story. It had been pure torture, being forced to endure his presence, walking through the opening face-off, and prepping their cooking stations within inches of each other. It was bad enough that he looked better than she trying to dismiss him from her thoughts, she reached for her chef’s jacket and began to wrap herself in her white cotton armor for the upcoming battle. She needed to win today, hands down. When she’d quit her job at the restaurant, thanks to Luke, she’d begun working on something she’d never imagined. A win on this show would launch her tiny event planning company into an actual business, and she liked the idea of being an independent business owner, never having to rely on the chefs above her to make or break her career. Never having someone you trust break your heart.
        “What has you so distracted, darling?”
        She startled and cursed herself for reacting to his deep timbre. Chills ran down her spine at the thought of him at her back. Steeling her body, she turned to face him and sucked in a breath at the sight of his gorgeous face up close, with its perfect angles and wake-and-run stubble.
