Famous in Paris, infamous in London, Verity Durant is as well-known for her mouthwatering cuisine as for her scandalous love life. But that's the least of the surprises awaiting her new employer when he arrives at the estate of Fairleigh Park following the unexpected death of his brother.

To rising political star Stuart Somerset, Verity Durant is just a name and food is just food, until her first dish touches his lips. Only one other time had he felt such pure arousal - a dangerous night of passion with a stranger, who disappeared at dawn.

Ten years is a long time to wait for the main course, but when Verity Durant arrives at his table, there's only one thing that will satisfy Stuart's appetite for more. But is his hunger for lust, revenge - or that rarest of delicacies, love? For Verity's past has a secret that could devour them both even as they reach for the most delicious fruit of all....

Listener Opinions

    " This one wasn't as captivating to me as other Sherry Thomas novels. Particularly because the H/h spend a majority of the book with absolutely no contact. Sherry writes such high tension filled erotic scenes that reading a whole book of hers is like holding your breath in anticipation for the full 400 pages. Its a rare talent, and I love it. I just wish we had more of it in this book. Though right around page 200 I believe things got nicely hot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/10/2014

    " I found the characters to be completely without passion for each other, something which I believe to be an important part of a romance novel. I was drawn in by the blurb on the back which mentioned that the heroine was a cook for a big English household. The cooking featured a bit, but the book didn't set the right tone for the food, it didn't make the hero fall in love with the heroine, most of the time it seemed to be so good it made the diners uncomfortable, not exactly romantic. Not recommended for anyone looking for actual romance in their romance books. "

    " I waited a while to read this book, because I wanted a large span of time where I would not be interrupted. I predicted it would be one that I could not put down, even to take a shower, and I was right! (I took the shower before I started reading, ha-ha). I was not disappointed, and at 2 am, with sniffles, I closed the cover on this quite excellent read. Ms. Thomas breaks so many of the "rules" of romance writing again. But she delivers a wonderful, creative tale unlike the carbon copy stories so prevalent in this genre. READ THIS BOOK! "

    " good characters relies a little too heavily on fate "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 1/10/2014

    " Symphonic concerts, oh my... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel Rogers | 12/25/2013

    " Underwhelmed by this one. The concept was good, the early descriptions of food and the emotions it elicited was fun. The length of the story and number of setbacks combined with maybe/maybe not drove me crazy and I was eager to reach the end of this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Anderson | 12/24/2013

    " Of Sherry Thomas's three books, this was my favorite. Food here isn't just a plot device or a metaphor, it is a full-fledged character, as alive and vibrant as any person. This book is, in fact, delicious! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 12/1/2013

    " The author attempted to add mystery and profound meaning through multiple and alternating back stories, which made for initial confusion to the base story line and terrible transitions. Although if you enjoy the interplay of the sensualities of food and sex, this is the book for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T | 11/26/2013

    " Really liked this. It had great food descriptions, lovely writing, both the primary and secondary romances were delightful, and there were none of the tropes that bother me. The Cinderella ending was a bit contrived, but I didn't really care. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vmontgzz | 10/11/2013

    " Delicioso "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 9/28/2013

    " 2/23 - Stayed up until 3:30 reading this last night. Had to force myself to stop so I'd have something to look forward to tonight. Good God I love her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sweetestsummer | 6/4/2013

    " Nice, sweet and delicious! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/26/2013

    " One I cannot recommend because it is pretty risque. That said, it was hard to put down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherri *Mistress of Laundry* | 3/4/2013

    " Too disjointed. Not a good read for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellianne Stevens | 9/5/2011

    " Not as great as "Not Quite a Husband," but another good book from Sherry Thomas. The theme of separated lovers that have difficulty reuniting is well done, but there were also some incredible culinary descriptions. Didn't make me cry like some of her others, but I liked it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 4/13/2011

    " Period romance, food, housekeeping porn, what's not to love? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/31/2011

    " One I cannot recommend because it is pretty risque. That said, it was hard to put down. "

    " Time period was odd, but the characters were sweet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 10/20/2010

    " I still am really enjoying Sherry Thomas. I have read all of her books now, and I must say, in general, I really love her character building and her fresh, different story lines. I can't wait until her next! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 9/18/2010

    " a lot of smut!!!!
    But still a decent historical story behind it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 9/14/2010

    " Sherry Thomas could write stereo instructions, and they would be beautifully written. I enjoyed her writing, but the story didn't quite work for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 7/14/2010

    " I actually wish I could give this book closer to a 3.8. It was so good until the last third. I don't know what happened to the end, maybe it was a lack of real conflict, but I just quit caring. The writing is wonderful, though, and I loved the Cinderella allusions. "
