Food To Fall In Love With

By on May 14, 2014

Eating is one of the most sensuous activities we can engage in (besides sex – grins). It engages all of the senses. We smell, taste, feel, see, hear (chewing, slurping, crunching) food.

Eating is also an activity we often associate with love and company. We cook for the people we care about. First dates often involve a meal, perhaps at a fancy restaurant. Chocolate is one of the most common gifts men give the women they care about.

Food plays an important role in almost all of my stories.

In The Seen Trilogy (He Watches Me, He Touches Me, He Claims Me), Blaine, our billionaire hero, serves Anna, our heroine. He’s a wealthy successful man yet he’s telling her that she’s more important than he is. He’s communicating without words that he puts her first and he’ll take care of her.

This is even more symbolic for Anna as she hasn’t always had enough to eat. She envisions a future in which she won’t ever have that worry.

In Flashes Of Me, Kat convinces Henley to eat broccoli and other green vegetables, foods believed to reduce the possibility of cancer. This is how she tells him she worries about him and she wants him to remain healthy.

In one scene, Kat sends Henley beef and broccoli. He then sends her chocolate covered strawberries. She is telling him “I’ll take care of you” and his non-verbal reply is “I’ll take care of you also.”

In Breaking All The Rules, one of the ways Camille expresses her individualistic, rebel self, is by eating fragrant curry at work. A friend of her mom’s taught her how to make these curries so there’s also an emotional connection. The curries are a little taste of her quirky home.

Camille expects every man she meets to reject her curries and to reject her. Nate, the conservative, extremely non-ethic hero, is perhaps the last person on Earth anyone would expect to order curry yet he does… for Camille. He’s telling her that he embraces her rebellious nature, that he will change to make their unusual relationship work.

Do you use food to convey your feelings?


Nathan Lawford, Blaine Technologies’ chief financial officer, is known as the Iceman. He conducts his personal and business affairs without emotion, never allowing himself to become involved with anyone. When Nate sees something or someone he wants, he negotiates, paying a simple, set monetary price.

Now he wants Camille, the company’s green-haired intern.

Camille Joplin Trent never expected to be paid to pleasure the man of her dreams. She can’t quite figure out why this is a bad thing. Nate is intelligent, handsome, sophisticated, everything she’s ever wanted in a lover and never thought she could have. Their contract is for a month, thirty lust-filled days of making every sexual fantasy they’ve ever had come true. At the end of this month, the rules state their relationship will end.

Of course, Camille has never been good at following rules.

    Absolutely. When I’m angry I cook spicy food or I use too much pepper. If I’m sad it’s pasta (my go-to comfort food). Celebrating is surf and turf. I try not to cook too many sweets because of a diabetic in the house with the nastiest sweet tooth on the planet and I don’t want to tempt them to be bad.
