Publication Date: April 24th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
In the next sizzling romance in Kristen Proby's New York Times bestselling Fusion series, two celebrity chefs compete in a culinary competition, but resisting each other will prove to be the greater challenge.
Cooking isn't what Mia Palazzo does, it's who she is. Food is her passion . . . her pride . . . her true love. She's built a stellar menu full of delicious and sexy meals for her restaurant, Seduction. Now, after being open for only a few short years, Mia’s restaurant is being featured on Best Bites TV. To say Seduction is a wild success is an understatement. All the blood, sweat, tears, and endless hours of work Mia has put into the restaurant has finally paid off. Then Camden Sawyer, the biggest mistake of her life, walks into her kitchen . . . Camden's celebrity chef status is world-renowned. He's the best there is, and the kitchen is where he's most at home. He can't resist the invitation to Portland for a showdown against Mia for a new television show. Mia was in his life years ago, and just like before, he's met his match in the beautiful Italian spitfire. The way she commands the kitchen is mesmerizing, and her recipes are clever and delicious. He's never had qualms about competition, and this is no different. He can't wait to go head to head with Mia. But can he convince her the chemistry they share in the kitchen would be just as great in the bedroom as well?
As Mia and Camden face off, neither realizes how high the stakes are as their reputations are put on the line and their hearts are put to the ultimate test.

Sometimes is hard to find the words to let the world know how much you loved a book and how profoundly it affected you. This is one of those times. Ms. Proby wrote a beautiful character that I could totally relate to making me love the story even more.
Mia is sassy, in control of her life, and most definitely her kitchen, she has friends who she loves and love her right back, but behind the self assure woman she's hiding insecurities and a secret she's been carrying for ten long years. When an opportunity to star on a cooking show comes to her she decides to take it, even if that opportunity brings her past to her present in the form of Camden Sawyer.
I loved this story so much. I loved Camden and the soul lifting love he had for Mia, for her determination to be a good chef, for her heart, for making her feel like she's the most beautiful girl in the world even when she's not what society qualifies as a perfect stereotype when it comes to a woman. And Mia, this woman and her determination to show those who come in contact with her how driven she is, is my role model. While some things in her life are like a ghost that keeps coming back, she keeps putting one foot in front of the other and showing the world how strong she really is.
Thank you, Ms. Proby. Thank you for a captivating story I couldn't put down, thank you for imperfect characters we could all look to and learn from, thank you for finishing this beautiful series with a perfect ending. But most of all, THANK YOU for reinforcing to the world that we all are beautiful and worthy of love no matter our size.
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
