Grace Torres has a lot to lose. And the Texas Hill Country restaurateur isn't letting Ty Beckett steal her thunder. He may be the Lone Star State's most famous bachelor chef, but Grace has a family legacy to save. She'll do whatever it takes to keep her beloved restaurant afloat...even go head-to-head in a reality TV cook-off only one of them can win. Growing up dirt-poor just made Ty more determined to succeed. But he's facing some stiff competition. Grace may be the only female alive who sees past Ty's footloose facade and charming one-liners. She's also igniting more heat than a Mexican jalapeno. Walking away with first place could give Ty everything he ever wanted. It could also make him lose the one woman who's ever come close to taming this culinary cowboy!
