Sweet Home Alabama meets Top Chef when Miami’s most determined image consultant clashes with Samoa’s most uncooperative chef in a race to rebrand him as South Beach’s newest star.

Brett Fontaine learned early that appearance matters and not to count on anyone but yourself. Trading her red-dirt roots for the title of Miami’s go-to image consultant, she refuses to let anything jeopardize her new life.

Not an influential client-turned-stalker who’s up for parole.
Not post-kidnapping panic attacks.
Certainly not the stubborn, attention-phobic chef she’s challenged to transform into a celeb in ninety days.

Will Te’o can almost taste the dream he sacrificed American Samoa, culture, and cherished family ties for—opening a four star restaurant in the most cut-throat culinary location in North America. Unfortunately, that requires navigating it’s equally cut-throat social scene. When his first public performance ends in a social media spectacle, his only option is turning to the stiletto-wearing nemesis who’s invaded his kitchen.

Neither expected to share anything but barbs, yet somewhere between accidentally bonding over comfort food and office-wrecking sex, they’re named South Beach’s hottest pairing. Until Brett’s stalker engineers a reputation-shattering reveal. She may be going down, but she’s not taking Will’s dreams with her. Now Will’s pulling out all his new skills and cooking up a last-ditch event. He’ll prove to Brett that relying on the right person makes for the perfect recipe—or be left heartbroken in the spotlight.

Salt+StilettosYum! Something good is cooking in Janet Walden-West’s literary kitchen and you are going to want a big helping of SALT & STILETTOS all for yourself as opposites attract like moths to a flame in the heat of Miami!

Te’o looks like anything but a culinary artist, but the big man from Samoa’s passion for food and his determination to make his dreams of owning top restaurant are finally coming true. All he needs is a little polish and a few lessons in how to handle the public and have the critics eating out of his hand.

Enter Brett Fontaine, foremost image consultant, who knows what it’s like to claw her way to the top of the heap, and she has no plans of losing her hard-won position. Little did she know, this chef was not a high strung artist, but a man just trying to take care of his family back in American Samoa. Let the fun begin!

While trying to turn this introverted mountain into a celebrity darling, Brett finds someone she could love, but that is not on her agenda at the moment.

Enter Cupid.

What a fun and entertaining read! A little sexy, a little sassy and even some warm and sweet moments make this one of those reads that will leave a 100 watt smile on your face, page after page, after page. Highly recommended for an upbeat escape where the palm trees grow.
