Available in: e-Book (reprint)
Maria Pagliano is a woman on a diet mission. Desperate to drop a dress size before her reunion, she joins the Chubby Chums. But waiting next door is sexy, tempting chef and restaurateur Dante Del Rosso.
Dante is all wrong for Maria. He tastes and smells like all the foods she has stricken from her diet. But Maria’s love for her singing grandfather, cantankerous grandmother and matchmaking mother all fill a long-empty spot in Dante’s heart. He sets out to win her, using every weapon he has, including his tortellini. He’s offering her the very thing she’s got no will power to resist—desire on a plate.
Originally published in March 2005 as THE DEVIL SERVED TORTELLINI by Zebra Books.
