Can a dash of scandal and a dollop of seduction be the recipe for his greatest image makeover?
Image consultant Blake Matthews is facing his toughest PR challenge yet: salvage the reputation of celebrity chef Kirin Hart. Once he does, he’ll be able to acquire San Francisco’s most successful PR firm. But Kirin’s no easy fix. She’s stubborn about changing her comfortable homemaker image and is unapologetic for wanting to present her authentic self after her ex-husband trashed their collective public image. She needs a PR lifeline fast. Only problem is that Blake wants more than to make her over.
Kirin doesn’t believe she needs a makeover—her true fans love will love her as she is. But she could lose everything if the scandal perpetuated by her ex, and the loss of reputation that has followed it, doesn’t get quashed right away. Kirin agrees to let model-perfect Blake work his magic for two weeks, but things get complicated when she can’t deny the way her body flares to life when he’s near.
