He’ll seduce her with every delicious bite…
It’s Valentine’s Day, and food critic Claudia Thomas just got ditched by her boyfriend. It wasn’t exactly passionate love, but a decent dinner companion is hard to find, especially when Claudia has reservations at one of London’s most prestigious new restaurants. Now she’s eating alone. Little does she know that super-sexy chef Ward Nicholls has a menu designed just for her…
When he see Claudia sitting alone on Valentine’s Day, Ward knows he needs to prepare something special. Something decadent, designed to tease the senses and pleasure the palate. His plan is to slowly entice Claudia, course by course, topped by a dessert she won’t everforget. But Claudia has a secret she’s been hiding…and admitting the truth could sour Ward’s sweet seduction.

TABLE FOR ONE was sexy. There's something about a seduction via a really good meal, and I loved the set-up for Claudia and Ward's relationship. Going into the reading I knew that this was going to be a novella, and that it would probably be quite ti... ...more
This short, sexy romp is a perfect appetizer for your next romantic read. It also works well as a sort of palate refresher between novel-length reads, giving you a fun story with a unique premise--but without the commitment.
The only critique I have is that I wish I'd gotten more background on Cla... ...more

The details on the dishes he prepared for her! Oh, wow, all the descriptions of food... so good. Of course t... ...more
This was delicious, literally! Actually, it was a loan from a friend. Read the whole thing on the treadmill, so it's novella-length. Very romantic, very flirty, with a great hero and heroine that I really enjoyed. Throw in the foodie element and it was great fun! I'll be looking for more books by... ...more
