WOW: Burning Down the Spouse & For The King

Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, is such an interesting meme in which to participate as I adore searching for books that are soon to be published and look forward to their release.  I also look forward to sharing my excitement about their releases, something that everyone who is around me all day experiences to a varying degree.  I, unfortunately, have no willpower and blurt out all of my info to anyone who will listen, often forgetting that not everyone shares my passion and drive for reading.  Such is life!!

Burning Down the Spouse
Dakota Cassidy

After discovering that her famous chef husband was cheating, Frankie Bennett lost her mind-on live TV. Now Frankie is broke, unemployed, and hiding out in her aunt's retirement village. That is, until Maxine Henderson-Barker-reformed trophy wife and owner of Trophy Jobs Inc. employment agency-arrives to give Frankie a much needed kick in the pants.

Soon, Frankie lands a job as a prep chef at a Greek diner in New Jersey, home to the world's best meatloaf and an owner who resembles an exquisitely chiseled Greek statue. Falling into bed with Nikos isn't the best idea, but after years of living in a man's shadow, this ex- trophy wife is ready to get busy cooking...

After First Consul Napoleon Bonaparte survives an assassination attempt, Chief Inspector Roch Miquel, a young man with a bright future and a beautiful mistress, must arrest the assassins before they strike again.
