the taste of you



Beautiful and talented Catherine Kelly is starting over as a food photographer in Chicago. With her painful past buried over 2000 miles away, she’s focused on her career and is hungry for little else. Until she meets a wealthy bachelor with arresting blue-grey eyes filled with enough tragedy to match her own. William Lambourne is a gourmand who takes great pleasure in food and in women. He’s rich, powerful, and gorgeous — and as talented in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom. From the moment they meet, William is determined to discover the perfect recipe to unlock Cat’s resolve, awaken her senses, and make her his own. He urges Catherine to step out from behind her camera and fully taste all that life has to offer, stirring an appetite in her she never knew she possessed – and it’s one only he can satisfy. As Catherine begins to fall for the stormy-eyed billionaire, she knows she must reveal her own dark secrets. But first, William must win Cat’s heart to ensure their pasts don’t undo them.

Book 1 in The Epicurean series, A Taste of You will leave you ravenous for more of Cat and William’s story!

A Recipe for ‘A Taste of You”

‘A Taste of You’ is the perfect dish for ‘hot cocky and broody billionaire loving readers’ who enjoys sensual passionate scenes with seductive food tasting and 9 ½ weeks kind of feeding…we promise, you will never look at a fig or a ‘pain au chocolat’ the same ever again…!!

“That’s the last time you’ll open your mouth to another man, he said, his voice husky and seductive. I couldn’t stop the tremor of pleasure that raced through me at his sexy tone. From now on, I’m the only man that feeds you.” ~ WML

taste of you

 Preparation of dish:

None to speak of…it went straight to the list of ingredients with this little quote:

“I want to fuck you. Hard. Long,” he whispered. “Until you come and come and think you can’t come anymore.”William


Main necessary and delicious Ingredients:

~ One well written storyline that has emotion, passion, mystery and intrigue.

~ One gorgeous, controlling, possessive and arrogant billionaire with a tragic past and secrets.

William Maddox Lambourne is a gastronome who loves his food and women….preferably together….on the kitchen floor…..(sorry you lost us to a pain au chocolate scene there)….This man has talent!

“We are going to fuck in more ways than you can imagine. And I’m going to show you pleasure you didn’t know existed.”

~ One sweet, guilt-ridden and beautiful photographer who has suffered the ultimate heartbreak when she became a widow at such a young age.

Catherine Kelly moves to Chicago working as a food photographer to escape her past. As she tries to heal and overcome her pain, she meets a mysterious man with stormy eyes. The connection and attraction is immediately there when tragedy meets tragedy.

~ One healthy dose of chemistry between well-developed characters who work through their issues and open themselves up to each other through trial and error throughout the story.

~ One best friend with the name of Beckett who should be an essential ingredient in any recipe. He is funny, sweet & protective….he rocks!

~ One not so bad cliff-hanger that makes you excited for book #2


Stir and mix all of the above ingredients together and combine it with some pretty sexy and evocative language and you have a dish that is pretty steamy, suspenseful, funny and sexy. You’ll want to taste this one if you are a fan of erotic romance like FSOG, Crossfire & The Blackstone Affair.

“It’s different with you.” He caressed my cheek, calming me. “You’re different. I want to keep feeling the way I feel when we’re together. It’s addictive. I don’t want it to stop.” 

Bon Appetit!!!!
