If you can’t take the heat, stay out of Chef Rico Alvarez’s kitchen.

Surrounded by the finest things money can buy, he leads a life of comfort and loneliness, and that suits him just fine – that is, until gardener Eden Stuart runs him off the road with her dilapidated old farm truck. His anger at her recklessness soon gives way to unforgettable attraction.

Despite his awakening love, Rico makes it clear that his body is all he has to offer Eden – it’s all she’ll ever get from him. “Love without trust is meaningless and nothing more than personal vanity,” she tells him. Trust is everything.

Rico knows she’s right… but trust is a commodity unaffordable for a man with so much to hide and everything to lose.
