Temptation Is Sweet. . .

After critiquing the poor fare at a soirée, Miss Nicole Beaufort's cousins wager her to do better. The daughter of an English noblewoman and a French chef, Nicole is confident she can win the challenge. But she will have to secure a position in a gentleman's kitchen--and keep it for at least six weeks. . .

Disguising herself as a widowed cook, Nicole finds work at a nearby estate, where the health of her new employer depends on her pleasing his palate. Wounded at Waterloo, the handsome but ornery Earl of Thornwood refuses to eat. But while Nicole fully expects to tempt his appetite, she doesn't expect to tempt his heart as well. . .

Includes delicious recipes for you to try!

About Wilma Counts:

Before moving to Nevada in 1994, Wilma Counts taught high school English and social studies in Germany to dependents of American forces stationed there. She loved the kids, but hated meaningless paperwork. She especially enjoyed her work with Advance Placement English, Model United Nations, and student exchanges with a Russian school.

Wilma grew up in Oregon, a product of the Leave It To Beaver era. She holds degrees in education and international relations. Having traveled widely, she is keenly interested in politics and international relations. She freely admits to being a C-SPAN junkie.

A member of the Romance Writers of America, she has written two Regency novels and a novella for Zebra. Willed to Wed is slated for publication in September, '99, and My Lady Governess in February, '00. Her current projects include another Regency and a novel set in the American West. She contributes a regular column on grammar and usage to the local RWA newsletter. Besides her interest in travel and writing, Wilma is an avid reader and she loves to cook, garden, and gamble—not necessarily in that order.
