Wallow in delicious GUILT...

The Food and Fornication Fables

Red-hot narcissistic compulsively healthy-living control freak - Lance Packhard - who happens to be a bankrupt sex-therapist (writing a book called “Sensual Secrets of a Sexual Surrogate”) gets hired to seduce  a woman who just loves food, Millie Deafly.

She’s not interested in men, let alone someone like our hero. The only way he'd get her attention was if he dabbed garlic-oil on his nipples? And even that would just not work! (he shaves his chest, she likes them hairy)

So in order to get close to her, he gets himself hired as an assistant to the Chef at Guilty Pleasures - a dinner club belonging to our heroine - and her business partner, Serge Moreno

Now Serge used to be a prostitute in Istanbul, a fluffer in skin-flicks in Vegas and is now a Master Chef in London. He’s also a homosexual black dwarf with major personality/sensitivity issues. Politcal correctness is not his thing...

Every night a new set of crazy guests come to the Guilty Pleasures to pig out, and poor abstemious Lance (as his alter-ego, a geeky but sexy Will) finds himself sucked into a riotous world of eccentricity and sensuality quite unlike anything he’s ever experienced. 

He suddenly finds himself falling madly in love with his “subject”… and about to be outed as an impostor! 
If you want to know how it ends, read the book! (It’s really funny. And sexy. Oh, and delicious!)

God! I gained POUNDS!
Ok, I ate pounds...Of chocolate...Ok, other things too.
I cooked all the menus in the book?
Research, of course. I HAD to do it.
I did.
Imagine I got something wrong?
Research is VERY important to our credibility as writers.
I did lots of research. Lots. And lots...
Lets not go there...

Back to the book: every chapter opens with “advice” from Lance’s how-not-to book “Sensual Secrets of a Sexual Surrogate”, and closes with excerpts from Millie’s tell-all diary.

It's wild...
Well, I enjoyed it!
