More About the Author

Maria Isabel Pita was born in Havana, Cuba. Her family moved to the U.S. when she was four months old and she grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. Reading, writing and history, especially the ancient Egyptian civilization, have been her abiding passions ever since she can remember. In college she majored in World History and minored in English Literature and Cultural Anthropology. She has traveled extensively and authored a series of critically acclaimed paranormal and contemporary erotic romances. Maria's most recent works are the historical epic Truth is the Soul of the Sun-A Biographical Novel of Hatshepsut-Maatkare, A Concise Guide to Ancient Egypt's Magic and Religion and Dream Partners - An Ongoing Experiment in Lucid Dream Sharing. Maria lives on a mountain top in the Blueridge with her husband, Stinger, and their beloved dog, Arthur. She is a regular contributor to the Lucid Dreaming Experience, for which she was interviewed by Robert Waggoner in the September 2011 issue. For her, lucid dreaming is a spiritual practice intimately bound with her waking life, and what the ancient Egyptians called "the intelligence of the heart."

Format: Paperback
A brand new novel from one of the hottest new authors of contemporary American erotica it's hardly a surprise the first print run is already sold ....

A young Cuban American, Ariana Padron returns to Miami for the funeral of an aunt and meets Gerald, an up and coming hot sculptor. Our heroine as well meets Eric, a suspended cop moonlighting as a lock smith, and, from the get go the reader is served a sexual snack that is absolutely yummie.....

The book is very very light fare and the author writes from a very very introspective and personal note. It is that skill that allows the reader to vicariously enjoy the freewheeling trysts of Ariane and her two lovers ..... More than being light fare, the author manages, I guess, to calm her yearning to write a cookbook and treats us to 26 different recepies of proabably the most popular Cuban dishes around. A nite to the author though I can't believe that she didn't include a recepie for black beans and rice ..... I mean whats a Cuban meal without the compulsory black beans .......

Great book I enjoyed it though I don't think I can leave it on the kitchen counter while trying some of the dishes ... cause one minute your frying ground beef and on the next page Ariana's eating .... well anyway you get the picture .....

By Dana Al-Basha on June 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is a quick read with hot scenes and so much passion for sex and food. I loved it!

Book Description:
Ariana Padron Flies down from Boston to Miami for her great aunt's funeral, and in the little coffee shop adjoining the funeral home she meets the magnetically attractive Gerald Loren. Even though she just broke up with her last boyfriend, she can't possibly resist when Gerald asks her to join him that night for a tour of Coral Gable's art galleries.

Gerald is a talented up-and-coming sculptor and his penetrating stare and skilled hands bring out Ariana's wildly passionate nature like never before. But there is a second love vying for her attention... her passionate love of great food, and each chapter contains some of her favorite easily prepared and health-conscious recipes.

Gerald is seduced by her passionate creativity, in every sense, as Ariana delights in playing with new seasoning and sensations, sinfully including herself in the heady spice of a wonderful man's love.

Ariana knows the time is finally right to enjoy the feast of true love every day and every night for the rest of her life that only one special man can share with her...
