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. They live in Western New York with their three children, one gerbil, four fish, a tortoise, and a beagle. Amanda spends her days teaching pastry arts classes and her nights writing sexy contemporary romance. If she isn’t baking or writing, she can usually be found reading a book and trying to get out of cooking dinner.

“Without love, life is nothing but work and sleep.”
Amanda Usen, Seducing the Playboy

Amanda Usen, Scrumptious

“You want me. And you hate that you want me. I know how you feel. Let’s get it out of our systems and go back to hating each other next week.”
