"Suffocating in a dead-end marriage, Midwesterner Zoey Sullivan has fled to New York. In love with the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, Zoey dodges calls from her ex, Derek, and builds a business catering private dinners and parties. Pursuing her passion for cooking was never an option when she was with Derek, and now Zoey relishes her independence. When Zoey meets reclusive millionaire Tristan Malloy, she's blown away by his kitchen--a marble-and-stainless-steel temple worthy of the culinary gods--and charmed by his impeccable gentlemanly manners. But despite his handsome looks and piles of cash, Tristan--a computer programmer--is shy and awkward. Zoey is sure that Tristan has all the right raw ingredients--and she's the right person to spice them up and turn him into a delectable dish. But Zoey's unprepared for just how well her makeover works. Slowly but surely, Zoey realizes she may have found her perfect match--but does Tristan even know how her feelings have changed? And what will happen when Zoey's ex comes to town, looking to win her back?"--Dust jacket flap.
