Hawt Culinary Romances

I just finished reading a fantastic culinary romance,  SCRUMPTIOUS by Amanda Usen.

Scrumptiousx-inset-communityThe plot was intriguing, the sex was hawt, the romance interesting, and the food…well, she knows her food. Since I know the restaurant business so well, the fact that the story was set in a restaurant could have been bad news for me. But happily it was not. I could tell that Amanda knew her stuff and sure enough, I looked her up online and she had been to culinary school and is even married to a chef. How about that? This is the first in her series, and I’ll be checking out the next one. And the next.

Since my books are labeled culinary romances, I thought I’d check out some of the other authors who are writing them and see what their approach is. Some of them are:




Some culinary romances are set in restaurants, some in bakeries, some in homes, and some revolve around chefs. Food is a strong element along with the romance. I think SAFFRON NIGHTS maybe the only one to focus on a food writer and her travels. I’m not sure about this. But do stay tuned.

Speaking of which, I’m getting ready to launch my own culinary romance on Wednesday with a Super Blast Book Tour. There will be excerpts of SAFFRON NIGHTS on 45 blogs and I’ll be offering a prize to one commenter–cedar and saffron bath gel and soap. Organic and homemade.


Here are the blogs that will be participating tomorrow. Check them out, leave  a comment and who knows you might win.

    Travel to exotic countries and danger and great food? Sounds like SAFFRON NIGHTS is a book that I definitely wanna to read! 🙂

    These other books seem really cool too! Do any of the other books have mysteries/romantic suspense in them as well?

      I don’t know about the others, but Scrumptious did have a mystery element. There was no murder and no life threatening sort of suspense, but there was a lot of mysterious shenanigans going on over this restaurant that was on its last legs.
