Sparks between love ’em and leave ’em pastry chef and poker sharp Marlene Bennet and traveling chef-for-hire Joe Rafferty when the two culinary perfectionists are forced to share a kitchen.

Maybe a little intrigue and high-stakes poker will be the perfect ingredients for these commitment-phobic foodies to whip up a happily ever after.

To add to the tense atmosphere, Marly and Olivia caught Keith cheating with the female bartender. Now that Olivia is dumping Keith, she offers a temporary job to her chef friend, Joe, in order to keep the restaurant running. Marly is smitten, but has feelings of jealousy and regret when it comes to the restaurant.

This sexy romance will brighten your day and you’ll just have to smile (and maybe even giggle)! It’s absolutely Scrumptious! (lol)
