WHIPPED is now available for download!
WHIPPED is the seventh short story in the Facile Restaurant series by Jacey Conrad and Gia Corona.
Facile’s chief pastry chef Lydia Conner has watched the jerk at Table Seventeen run her fellow kitchen staffers ragged all night with his special requests and substitutions. But she knows she can sweeten his sour mood with one of her legendary desserts. No man alive can resist her special flourless chocolate cake…. Except for the jerk at Table Seventeen.
Mark Ferrell just wants this godforsaken evening in the armpit of the South to be over. But his partners are drawing out this client dinner as if they are being paid by the course. Still recovering from a relationship with a vigilante vegan, Mark’s afraid Facile’s rich food might actually kill him. To compound his misery, he gets a visit from the enraged, sizzling-hot pastry chef whose work he’s just rejected. Mark is about to get a chocolate-dipped lesson in what it means to indulge.
WHIPPED is available for 99 cents from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords and iBooks.

STEAMED, the sixth installment in the FACILE series, is now available!
Lee Broussard is just a nice guy doing a favor for a friend – delivering a gift to an anniversary dinner at Facile – and ends up seeing his girlfriend sucking chocolate mousse off some strange guy’s finger. Shocked speechless and on the verge of dismantling the classy dining room with his bare hands, Lee is distracted by lovely seating hostess Abby DuLane, who yanks him into the nearest closet.
Petite and sharp-tongued, Abby runs her hostess station like a tiny country, of which she is queen. And she is not about to let a perfect specimen like Lee suffer the indignity of a public cheating-fueled meltdown. Groping a customer in front of his soon-to-be ex-girlfriend falls within her job description, right?
STEAMED is now available for 99 cents from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and iBooks.

Delia Montgomery is on the worst date in history of dates. The charming, funny version of “Chip” that she met online was an internet mirage, dissolving to leave her with an over-coiffed, raging douche canoe. Chip seems to be following some sort of handbook entitled, “How To Make Your Date Want To Stab You In The Face in Three Easy Steps.” Between the back-handed compliments and “helpful suggestions,” Delia is seriously considering tunneling her way through the floor of Facile with a shrimp fork.
Enter their waiter Byron, who is immediately smitten with the gorgeous victim of an internet date gone awry. Byron is a smooth, well-mannered counterpoint to dating dud Chip, who does not appreciate witnessing the instant chemistry between his date and the server he has no plans to tip. When the date implodes, Bryon is there to provide the special sort of service Delia needs to recover.
The fourth installment in the Facile Restaurant Series, BOILED, is now available!
All Jason Parker wanted to do was throw a nice anniversary dinner for his parents at Facile, just one nice dinner that his parents don’t end up planning, cooking, or funding. It’s too bad that his family seems hell-bent on ruining it. Between his older brother stealing credit for the entire enterprise, his uncle stealing the silverware and his sister stealing everyone’s joy, it’s enough to send Jason running for the comfort of Facile’s bourbon supply.
The only thing keeping him sane in this quagmire of dysfunction is the table’s waitress, Gen Ferrar, who is handling his family circus like a ringmaster. Short, sassy, and shrewd, Gen knows how to handle all sorts of problem diners – the cheapskates, the grabby drunks, the bitter pills. She’s just never had so many of those types at one table. Watching Jason, a genuinely nice guy just trying to do something considerate, putting up with ten kinds of rudeness from his relatives makes her even more determined to make this dinner perfect. She will do whatever it takes, even if it means providing a very special brand of stress relief when his temper threatens to boil over.
BOILED is available at Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Amazon and Smashwords for 99 cents.
POACHED is now available on Smashwords, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iBooks. POACHED 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.
Kate Ravineux expected her romantic dinner at Facile to end in a proposal from her boyfriend, Scott. She did not expect to open that sacred little blue box to find a keychain. A keychain. Stinging from the realization that her boyfriend considers her a “fixer upper” only worthy of co-habitation he has to hide from his mama, Kate ditches Scott at the table and makes a run for the elevator. Damon Blake has been watching Kate’s date from hell all night from his perch at Facile’s bar. And while Scott’s obliviousness to Kate’s curvy beauty pisses him off, it also gives him an opening to pluck Kate up like the ripest fruit from the vine. Damon invites her to his rooftop for a nightcap and some smoking hot revenge sex. The best way to get over a guy is to get under another, and in front of him… and on top of him… and bent over his knees… The fourth installment in the series, BOILED will be available soon!
