Recipe for Love
by Susan Mac Nicol
I didn’t start off to write a story about chefs. I wanted to write a story set around a central place where people could meet. So I thought a restaurant would be a really good place. A place with character where people felt welcome. I also wanted to write about a man who had lost everything-in his eyes anyway -and felt himself to be half the man he used to be. So a chef who had lost his sense of taste and smell sort of fit in with the idea of the restaurant. So Love You Senseless came to be.
Recipes- as I don’t cook much, I can’t really claim to have a recipe to share. I’d feel a bit like a fraud. I guess if I wanted to be cheesy, I could make a recipe for Love ?
Take two men, one seasoned with tragedy and another one flavoured with compassion
Throw them into a mixing bowl of cosmopolitan influence, warm and inviting seasoning, and mix well.
Add a soupcon of supporting ingredients, some intense moments, flares of passion, and a pinch of red head, and place in an oven that’s been turned up to scorching…
Bake for a while, while enjoying a nice glass of Rioja, then remove dish, sit back and relax and enjoy.
I can’t think of anything better I’d rather do myself ☺
About Love You Senseless
London’s saucy up-and-coming chef, Eddie Tripp has just the right recipe to drive tragedy from the mind of Gideon Kent—and leave him senseless with desire.
From Soho to Norwich, there’s no escaping love.
A TASTE OF FOREVER
An award-winning chef with his own restaurant and an inexhaustible passion, Gideon Kent once had everything. Then came tragedy. It stole more than Gideon’s home. He hasn’t cooked since.
Until Eddie Tripp. Fun-loving and vivacious, the Norfolk redhead’s a real up-and-comer in Gideon’s kitchen—and other places. Slim where Gideon’s broad, easy-going where Gideon is growly, he and Gideon seem polar opposites, and yet Eddie conjures flavors that would tempt anyone with a taste for perfection. The sauce of love is already simmering, and this pair is about to dine on the most delicious dish they’ve ever prepared. Because Eddie’s been Gideon’s missing ingredient all along.
About Susan Mac Nicol
Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…
She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.
Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.
In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.
