Lissa WIlde is a talented chef on her way to the top at one of Hollywood's newest restaurants, but she loses her job after the man she trusted harasses her sexually. Nick Gentry is an actor and he's hot, hot, hot--until a tragic accident ends his career. Lissa's desperate for a job. Nick's desperate for a cook at the working ranch he inherited, and where he's gone ino hiding. Nick's never dealt with a woman who doesn't fall at his fee; Lissa's never cooked for a surly bunch of men out in the middle of nowhere. Fate brings Nick and Lissa together. They get off to a terrible start. Still, blazing passion brings Lissa into Nick's bed and into his heart. What they share is beyond anything either of them has ever known--but it's more, lots more, than either of them is willing to trust.
