Harlequin Super Romance
Detective Nick Duncan will do anything to crack his latest case. Even if it means engaging in some less-than-legal undercover work. When his grandfather begins taking cooking classes at a catering company suspected of laundering drug money, it's almost too easy!
Until Nick meets Eden Tremont—his new cooking instructor and the suspect's sister. The bubbly blonde is a whiz in the kitchen…and with his old grandfather. And before he even realizes what's happening, Nick is ambushed by his feelings for the woman. It's been a long time since he's cared about anything other than his job. But his reckless deception may cost him more than his case.
UNDERCOVER COOK(4) by Jeannie Watt: Nick Duncan goes undercover at Tremont Catering to find out if someone in the company is laundering money for a Nevada drug ring. There he meets company co-owner Eden Tremont and quickly finds himself attracted to the perky blond. Eden’s also immediately attracted to Nick, but when she finds out he’s been deceiving her in order to investigate her brother, Justin, she’s not sure she’ll ever trust him again. Lively characters complete this well-written tale. Nick’s slight flaw — being too consumed with work — only makes him more likable, and Eden’s saucy personality is fun. The money-laundering plot gives the story extra depth.
