BURNED, the second story in Conrad and Corona’s FACILE RESTAURANT series of ebook shorts, is now available on Amazon, Smashwords, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble. Burned is the next installment of ten erotic romance short stories by Jacey Conrad and Gia Corona. The series focuses on the love lives of members of the Facile restaurant staff, each story centering around a different couple. Publicist EJ Lasher is not thrilled to hear that her ex-boyfriend, celebrity chef Morgan Jeffries, is visiting Facile, the latest restaurant she’s promoting. She and Morgan did not leave things on a good note – well, technically, she left the note on his knife case and he didn’t notice it for weeks. And she doesn’t look forward to facing Morgan’s famous, profanity-driven temper when he realizes she works for Facile. Morgan Jeffries made a name for himself with his runaway mouth and talent in the kitchen. Pressured into visiting Facile by his network, he is astonished to find that his hostess for the evening is EJ, known to him as his former girlfriend, “Lizzie.” The sweet girl he once knew has been replaced by some cold, business-like, glamazon. As two old flames meet in Remy Billodeaux’s steaming kitchen, EJ is about to put the “ex” in sex. While SEARED, the first installment is permanently FREE, each following installment is 99 cents.
Gia and Jacey are proud to announce the release of SEARED, the first title of their 10-part, FACILE RESTAURANT SERIES of erotic romance short stories. In the series, Conrad and Corona explore the steamy scandals of New Orleans’s hottest kitchen. Each story features a new pairing and setting over the course of one insanely complicated dining service at Facile, a newly opened French Quarter eatery.
SEARED centers on Chef Remy Billodeaux, who just wants to run his kitchen, his way. Unfortunately, he has partners and investors, one of whom insists on sending his daughter, Sabine, an aspiring chef, to observe the way a kitchen works. Despite his reputation for scandalous “smoking breaks” with customers, even Remy knows better than to hook up with an investor’s baby girl.
Sabine is a woman who knows what she wants and being indentured to a brilliant but maniacal, egocentric chef isn’t it. When dinner service threatens to crash and burn–with a celebrity chef in attendance–Sabine decides to pitch in to help the restaurant. Will Sabine or Remy be able to stand the heat of Facile’s kitchen?
