If You Can't Stand the Heat Excerpt:

When she’d finished with the salad, she took a stool on the opposite side of the counter and watched him, as he lightly grilled the eggplant. He poured them each a glass of red wine, handing one to her. 

She took a sip and smiled. “Very nice.” 

“Only the best,” he replied, taking a drink. 

“So what made you start cooking, Théo? Or was it something you always wanted to do?” 

“My grandmother came over from Italy for a visit when I was nine. I used to sit and watch her prepare all the meals. Slowly but surely, she conned me into helping. Measure that flour, Théo. Help me roll out this pasta." He smiled wistfully at the memory. "By the time she left at the end of the summer, she was sitting on the other side of the counter, watching me. She taught me everything she knew, and the rest they say is history.”  

Artfully, he began to plate their meal. “So what made you start writing, Syn?” 

“When I was little, I used to tell myself stories to help me fall asleep at night and then when I learned how to print I wrote them down.” She shrugged. "I had stacks of little booklets, stapled at the edges. It just always seemed so natural for me to write. I never imagined myself doing anything but. It's always been my dream."

“And when did you decide to write erotica?” He asked, with an amused expression. 

“When I discovered sex, of course," she said, raising her glass in silent salute. "I wrote down my fantasies. Sometimes I still do. And sometimes, they come true."
