Seared is the first of 10 erotic romance short stories by Jacey Conrad and Gia Corona. The series focuses on the love lives of members of the Facile restaurant staff, each story centering around a different couple.
Remy Billodeaux is the king of his kitchen, master of all he surveys. He is accustomed to praise and accolades, to female patrons lining up to be his "flavor of the evening". He is not accustomed to celebrity chefs, food critics, and wannabe chefs intruding on his kingdom. And Sabine Devereaux is just the cherry on the sundae of a bad night. She can't be intimidated. She can't be outsmarted or outcooked. And she's not falling for his usual flirty tricks.
Sabine is thrilled for the chance to shadow chef Remy, but she's not pleased that her father used his position as an investor in Facile to arrange this favor for her. Remy pushes her to the limits of her skill and patience, but there's no denying the heat they generate in the kitchen together. Will she resist Remy's skills or throw herself from the fire and into the frying pan?
