The Chef's Bride
#366 in Romance - 25th July 2017
Chef Nusret's kitchens are supposed to be the place where angel's drop ambrosia. However, the reclusive chef hasn't ever named a heir to his vast empire, but when he realises that he will soon be too old to nurture a child and groom it to take over his steak house chain, he finds the young and naive Colette McCartney who wants to start café of her own to fulfill her father's dying wish.
He offers her a deal she can not refuse. If she agrees to be his wife and let him sire her children, he will train her as an apprentice and once a year of their marriage is complete, open a café for her under his successful brand name.
Colette has no idea what she has signed up for, her soft gentle husband is a cruel, hard, whip cracking Master when it comes to the kitchen. He tears into her, punishing each mistake of hers with a creative pain and then carries her to bed and soothes her like a child. His mood swings confuse her, but she can't help fall in love with him.
