A woman with a taste for adventure…a man who knows how to satisfy her hunger. The chef to Queen Mary cooks up fiery romance with a spirited Scottish minstrel at the most controversial banquet in Tudor history.
Tristan MacKenzie, a brilliant chef in the royal household, plans to impress Queen Mary at the baptism feast for her infant son, until an intrepid minstrel, Mery Graham, arrives to stir the pot. A woman’s place is definitely not in the kitchen, but daring Mery isn’t intimidated by the handsome chef who’s whetted her appetite for romance. Mery’s impetuousness becomes a recipe for disaster as she begins to fall in love and out of wanderlust. And when insatiable curiosity lands her in the middle of a plot to assassinate the prince, Tristan must risk his life and his future–leaping from the frying pan into the fire–to save the sassy lass who has stolen his heart.
