Nicola Marsh on The Way To a Man's Heart #AuthorFood
It’s no surprise my new release and first book for the sizzling Harlequin Dare series features a patisserie.
There’s something infinitely comforting about entering a place filled with warmth, buzz and the aromas of cinnamon and vanilla. The low hum of chatter among happy patrons sampling sweet delights. The quandary of staring at the display case and dithering over what to choose. We’ve all been there, right?
My heroine in SWEET THING, Abby, is a divorcee from a rich family and she’s in desperate need of comfort. So what does she do on the day she walks out on her marriage? She follows her dream to become a pastry chef by strolling into her favourite patisserie to ask for a job.
It takes time but working in an environment surrounded by sugar and spice heals Abby. Until nightclub owner Tanner King struts in as her part-time boss.
The sexy inked bad boy disrupts her inner peace, especially when she discovers the guy can cook.
It’s not just the warmth from the ovens heating things up in the kitchen when she watches Tanner create magic with his hands…
We’ve all heard the old cliché ‘ the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ but I think the reverse is true too. Which woman isn’t turned on by seeing a guy whipping up anything in the kitchen? Whether it’s something as simple as toasted cheese sandwiches to a gourmet meal, the simple act of sitting back and watching a man take charge in the kitchen is a huge turn-on. At least, Abby thinks so!
I love writing in cafés for the vibe. There’s something about being surrounded by all that atmosphere that fuels my creativity. And if that café has a patisserie attached…I get an idea for a new story!
SWEET THING is out now and the sequel WILD THING releases June, PLAY THING in September. When Abby’s friends demanded their own stories, what’s a writer to do?
