Blurb: n this sexy new Star Harbor romance series, featuring the too-tempting Grayson brothers, a celebrity chef turns up the heat for a local café owner—and things start to sizzle.

Lexie Meyers decides there’s nothing sweeter than watching Sebastian Grayson’s perfect, wicked mouth devour her coconut cake. He’s hot, he’s hungry, and he’s sizing her up like she’s the best thing on the menu. But she’s been burned in the past and flings just aren’t her thing. Too bad Sebastian can’t resist a challenge.

Worldly, famous, and notorious with the ladies, Seb had planned a weekend of fishing and relaxation with his brothers. Until Lexie, with her kissable lips and frosty “get lost” attitude, makes him want to forget his culinary empire and create some magic with her. After he fires up his charm—including challenging her to a televised cook-off to break through her resistance—it’s now hotter in the bedroom than it is in the kitchen and Lexie isn’t sure whether she’s lost her mind . . . or just her heart.

Review: Things are heating up in the kitchen- and the bedroom! Beware, as two hot young chefs are lighting the sparks and there just may be a happily ever after for the pair! Want to know how to find out? Read Deep Autumn Heat. I think you may enjoy what's on the menu....

Set in New England, a place called Star Harbor, is where Lexie resides and makes a living. She's got her own restaurant, and she's making quite a stir around town.  In walks celeb chef Sebastian Grayson. Known for his attitude, but top notch skills, he makes quite a stir in Lexie. At first, it isn't a good way. He's rude and a bit obnoxious, but on the secret side, he's a bit smitten with Lexie. In fact, he's very intrigued by her.

The sexual tension definitely sizzles between the pair. It's imminent from the start. Add in a serving of a great weaving plot, touching emotion, and a dash or two of suspense, and you can smell what's cooking. This debut is a sure delight,  keeping readers engaged and eyes glued to the pages, eagerly anticipating what's next.  Ms. Barrett's story is fun, fresh, and flirty. Star Harbor is a town I'd love to come back and visit again in the future.

Need some spice in a contemporary romance?  How about Deep Autumn Heat?
