In A FEAST OF YOU, Book 3 in my The Epicurean series, Catherine Kelly and her friends Allison and Dana, enjoy a girls’ night out at Hutch Morrison’s signature restaurant, Morrison Hotel. Smokin’ hot, heavily inked ex-rockstar Hutch is now one of the most lauded chefs on the planet, but he’ll never turn his back on his rock-n-roll roots. Morrison Hotel’s menu completely changes a few times a year and each new menu is inspired by a rock album. Sticky Fingers is the current theme and Hutch’s plays on American Southern cuisine and “foods of his youth,” pay homage to the iconic 1971 Rolling Stones album. Allison orders a fancy cocktail called the “Faithfull,” which is named for Marianne Faithfull, who co-wrote “Sister Morphine,” with Keith and Mick. The drink itself is a play on Southern Sweet Tea, with a kick. Bon Appetit!

The passion between beautiful food photographer Catherine Kelly and billionaire gourmand William Lambourne is now a full-course meal…
Cat and William have had the right ingredients for mind-blowing passion from the very start, and now their whirlwind romance has gotten serious. Very serious. They’re practically living together, and sharing William’s luxury Chicago penthouse is even more delicious than Cat could ever have imagined. Whether he’s cooking her an elaborate gourmet dinner or satisfying her every need in the bedroom, William Lambourne knows how to take care of his woman and Cat couldn't be happier.
But life with Mr. Lambourne in his mansion in the sky quickly becomes complicated. Demons from William’s past are back and they want to harm what’s most precious to him: Cat. He’ll do anything in his power to protect the woman he loves from danger, even hiring an elite security team to follow Catherine around the city. Cat loves that William wants to keep her safe, but she’s not used to being a target – or being so dependent. And then there’s Cat’s new boss Hutch Morrison, the ex-rockstar-turned-world-renowned-chef who stirs up another kind of trouble. Cat’s definitely not used to seeing her stormy-eyed sex god so riled up. Cat and William may be a perfect pairing, but when dangerous forces of all types threaten to keep them apart, it will take more than just their undeniable chemistry—and their insatiable appetites—to survive it.
