Cale Valens is ancient vampire who has given up on finding his life mate. His friends and family, especially Marguerite, have not given up. Cale leads a busy life and owns several lucrative business’s in France. He earns enough to wear designer clothes and travel when he feels like it. Cale hides his elation about having found a life-mate, in case it all goes wrong.

Alexandra Willan is a very busy chef, especially now she’s preparing to open a second restaurant. The chef at her first restaurant has handed in his notice, asking for a very large pay rise to make it worth staying on. Many other things have gone wrong in the past week. The paint, tiles, furniture and carpeting have all been wrong, leaving her with too many bills and a clashing color scheme.

When Cale comes along wanting to help, she falls for his charms, but doesn’t know he hasn’t eaten in a couple of thousand years, let alone cooked any food.

HUNGRY FOR YOU is yet another of Ms Sands books with a very amusing story. They leave this reader feeling happy, as there are always so many funny scenes.
I’ve enjoyed every one I’ve managed to find and they’ve made me smile each time. The characters are so well written, they become your friends long before the end.
The characters from previous tales often pop in to cause the hero or heroine extra problems.

The background of a professional kitchen, made this tale a lot different, with more interaction with mortals. There is always chaos in kitchens as the orders come in fast and for Cale, a time when he found himself floundering.

Alex also has problems when the chef tries to come back, then an ex really does try to put her out of business. A fast paced story, with great sex scenes and plenty of interference from friends and relatives.

This reviewer found this to be well written and descriptive enough to be able to put pictures in my head.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
