Fabiana Rivas doesn't have time for love. She's already got more on her plate than she can handle with the long hours she works as a cooking instructor, caring for her aging mother and autistic son, and dealing with her self-absorbed celebrity chef ex-husband. But when a handsome firefighter flirts with her in the grocery store and then shows up to her cooking class, eager to learn, Fabiana considers that there is always room for dessert.
James Howland is newly divorced and burned out on love. He's not even sure if he wants to stay in New York City – a place he moved to for his ex-wife's career, taking him away from his work as a hotshot firefighter in Oregon. But when he meets a lovely woman at the grocery store and sparks fly, James can't help but want to stoke the fire.
Fabiana and James discover that together they can turn up the heat without getting burned.
