How do you go from being an urban dag to a country boy without any experience of the bush?..In 2008 Matthew Evans, one of Australia's most powerful food critics, stepped off the Sydney treadmill to farm 20 acres in Australia's southernmost shire...What is it really like to take the plunge, leaving a whole world of familiar people, places and work behind? How does it feel to use a cordless drill for the first time, to plant a vegetable garden, to milk a cow, to slaughter a chook for dinner? And what if a TV show is filming the whole process?..This is the story of that transformation. The story of a life more in tune with the seasons and more connected to the soil. A life that is as rewarding as it is exhausting. The story of a family trying to turn a living from the noble and ancient art of growing things on the land.

Since then, via a high-profile modelling career, Isaac has nurtured his passion for great cooking and diverse food with the fashion capitals as his inspiration.
A head chef. His assistant. And a night of fiery passion. I’ve had a crush on my incredibly hot, terrifying and unobtainable boss since long before I even started working under him. My daydreams are filled with dirty fantasies about him as there’s no chance any of them will become reality. Because you really shouldn't mix business with pleasure. Until you do. The moment Lucien Dumont, outstanding chef and owner of Haze, set his piercing blue grey eyes and skilled hands on me, everything changed. One night sparked the flame between us and now I'm helpless against the wildfire flaring in his eyes. My body craves to be engulfed, but my heart yearns for something out of reach. Something impossible for a Chef de Partie to expect from her boss. Yet a question torments me. Does Lucien want the same thing I do? Whatever the answer, I have a choice to make: stand the heat and stay in the kitchen or walk away and get burnt? Author note: This is not a dark romance. It's short, super steamy contemporary romance.
