I enjoyed this much better than the first book even though I could see parallels between the two heroine's, both ambitious and not thinking much about love and romance, one think I don't get is why can't you have both?
The heroine is a publicist whose newest client is a hot Italian chef and his tour for his new cook book. The hero loves women and cooking and he is intrigued by the heroine and her professionalism.
It actually takes him too long to even get to a personal level with her since she is so adept at building barriers. I actually have noticed in Nora Roberts books that the hero's seem more comfortable with the concept of commitment and the same happens in this book.
