By Sherry Thomas
Stuart Somerset inherited his half-brother’s entire estate when Bertie Somerset died unexpectedly. Everything included his brother’s infamous cook, Verity Durant, as well known for her mouthwatering cuisine as for her scandalous love life. But to rising political light Stuart, food is just food, until he first tastes her dish. Only once before has he been so aroused and that was from a night of passion with a stranger ten years earlier, a lover he has searched for in vain since.
Verity Durant is a world-class cook in a field and era where men rule. A quirk got her the post with Bertie and she hopes to finesse Stuart out of letting her go. She doesn’t reckon with the overwhelming attraction between Stuart and her, and the complication it will bring to their lives. For she has some secrets!
Delicious is the second novel from Sherry Thomas, whose dynamite debut Private Arrangements knocked our socks off last year. Now she shows she has as much talent as we thought all along. Delicious is packed with engaging characters, gripping dialogue, a devious plot, steamy sex and smart writing. This is definitely an author on the rise. Another keeper! Get it!
