In sixty days Chef Sloane Gabrielli will have to close the doors on her family owned restaurant. The real estate company has decided the building should be gentrified to fit in with the neighboring stores- pushing out long time tenants without a second thought. But Sloane isn’t the type to roll over and show her belly. The oldest of five siblings, Sloane will protect her employees, her community and her family legacy with every single cell in her petite body. Victor Hanley had better gird his loins.

Maybe tasting what this luscious chef has to offer is exactly what he needs.
