Hanna has a foodie's dream job: as a culinary journalist, she gets to travel across Europe to write up the Continent's finest restaurants. But after penning a scathing review of a restaurant nestled in a Tuscan apricot grove, her boss informs her of a big problem: when the restaurant's owner read the article, she keeled over dead from a heart attack. Now the owner's grandson, Fabrizio, has filed a lawsuit against the magazine, and if Hanna can't convince him to drop the case, she'll lose her job. Determined to keep her career off the chopping block, Hanna returns to the restaurant to apologize. But upon her arrival, she finds that the little old lady's death has created more than just the usual grief, since Granny's will stipulates that Fabrizio will inherit the restaurant if--and only if--he's married. With time running out for them both, the young man offers a crazy deal: he'll drop the lawsuit if Hanna agrees to be his bride. As things heat up in and out of the kitchen, the two wonder: Could Granny's scheme turn out to be a recipe for romance?

This wildly romantic novel from the author of Apricot Kisses proves that the recipe for love sometimes needs just a dash of the unexpected--and the magic of the Scottish Highlands. Josefine Sonnenthal has it all under control. A successful lawyer with a sensible fianc� and big plans for marriage and children, she is sure that everything in her life is going according to plan. But without a very important family ring--one that may possess mystical powers to doom or bless Josefine's impending marriage--there will be no wedding. And that's why she finds herself on a plane heading to Scotland with her two eccentric great aunts, desperately searching for a wayward cousin who holds the coveted heirloom. When Josefine finds herself in one near-disaster after another along the Highlands countryside, she repeatedly crosses paths with the handsome but notoriously moody confectioner, Aidan Murray. Enchanted by her lush new surroundings, she tries to resist his rugged charm, but soon she begins to question everthing. Does having a plan really mean having it all together? Or could this unexpected love be the best plan yet?

While the heart of the book lies in mouth-watering recipes for such dishes as Creole-style chicken gumbo, chestnut stuffing with truffles, and cherry dumplings, the author also comments briefly on his Southern childhood.

The most difficult poems to write Are those of love and those of death. IÕm half in love and half dead. It stands to reason that IÕve come upon a difficult task. Despite his disclaimer, it seems no difficult task at all. One of the pioneers of Chicano poetry and a highly esteemed artist in the Mexican American community, Luis Omar Salinas is a poet with Tex-Mex bordertown roots whose work is studied at the Sorbonne. Beginning with his legendary first book, Crazy Gypsy, he has been a major figure not only in Chicano literature but in all of American poetryÑboth a poet of the people and a voice for other poets. In Elegy for Desire, Salinas has crafted visionary poems about growing older and looking back on a rich life of poetry. In this quiet yet hallucinatory volume, Salinas offers us a prismatic collection of odes, elegies, and cantos of desireÑcomplex poems about our place in the world. Poems to be savored in solitude, or better still with an intimate companion. Few poets, Latino or otherwise, are as daring with love poetry that is so honestly fierce. Salinas gives us a meditation on gently aging while continuing to celebrate personal experience that draws upon the world. One need only sample these rich, elegant stanzas to recognize the wealth of wisdom found in their words. Elegy for Desire is a testament to a singular talent that has survived for decades . . . and will continue to inspire long beyond his lifetime. The dead canÕt complain, and lovers always do. Well, IÕm here, and that is important. And if life can be as exciting as this, I must be doing something right.
