Cover Reveal: Into the Fire by Amanda Usen + Giveaway

You all know what a big fan I am of culinary romances so when I heard that the lovely Amanda Usen, who besides being a romance author daylights as a pastry chef(!) had a brand new novel coming out from Entangled Publishing in their Indulgence category romance line, I couldn't have been more excited!! :-D 

So I am happy to report that thankfully the release date of  (doesn't it sound all exciting and sensual? I have to fan myself just thinking of all the delicious and sexy scenes there could be ;-p lol) isn't much further (June 10th everyone, mark your calendars!), and to make the wait bearable the terrific people at Entangled put together this game and giveaway, so have fun and don't forget June 10th is The Date! ;-)

You can find the 2nd piece of the puzzle at Ex Libris, here it is:

Puzzle Piece #2

And my ingredient is: BUTTER
doesn't everything taste so much better with a little bit of butter? ;-)

And a bit about the novel itself:

Jackson Calabrese has a lot of nerve. He beat Lila Grant in the Culinary Academy competition using her recipes. Now, he’s opening a restaurant and wants her help? Fine, she'll fix his menu, but it's going to cost him.

Heir to the Calabrese restaurant empire, Jackson can buy anything he wants, except creativity, so he buys Lila's instead. He can craft perfect paella, but to take New York by storm he needs her innovative spark.

Skillets aren't the only things hot in the kitchen, and an uneasy truce ignites into passion. They’re great in bed, but Jackson doesn't trust her, and Lila is contemplating revenge. The restaurant opening approaches, the menu is completed, and the tables are set for one final act of betrayal. How can love bloom in the midst of such a hot mess?

Release Date: June 10, 2013

Pre-order at - B&N

Amanda Usen knows two things for certain: chocolate cheesecake is good for breakfast, and a hot chef can steal your heart. Her husband stole hers the first day of class at the Culinary Institute of America. She married him after graduation in a lovely French Quarter restaurant in New Orleans, and they spent a few years enjoying the food and the fun in the Big Easy. Now they live in Western New York with their three children, one hamster, two guinea pigs, a tortoise, and a new-to-them beagle. Amanda spends her days teaching pastry arts classes and her nights writing romance. If she isn’t baking or writing, she can usually be found chasing the kids around the yard with her very own hot chef husband.

Want chimichurri, chocolate cake or Chicken Alighieri? Visit Amanda at, where you can find recipes for many of the yummy dishes in her books. She can also be found on and if you want to chat about romance, writing, or recipes.
