Book Description

The second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump's irresistible Sweet and Savory Romances.

Maria Pagliano is a woman on a diet mission. Desperate to drop a dress size before her reunion, she joins the Chubby Chums. But waiting next door is sexy, tempting chef and restaurateur Dante Del Rosso.

Dante is all wrong for Maria. He tastes and smells like all the foods she has stricken from her diet. But Maria's love for her singing grandfather, cantankerous grandmother, and matchmaking mother all fill a long-empty spot in Dante's heart. He sets out to win her, using every weapon he has, including his tortellini. He's offering her the very thing she's got no will power to resist--desire on a plate.

*Special bonus material: Recipes written by the characters inside!*

*The original version of this eBook was published in 2005, and titled as The Devil Served Tortellini.*

REVIEWS:

“This is a compelling and very smoothly written story with funny, sympathetic characters and a terrific Boston setting. And as the second book in a trilogy, it stands alone successfully and is a delightful read.” - Marilyn Weigel, Romantic Times Magazine

"Take some plain old fashioned fun, add some romantic love, sprinkle it with platitudes and serve it on a bed of wisdom and you have Shirley Jump's The Devil Served Desire. With excellent recipes scattered throughout, Shirley Jump is sure to have a winner with this book." - Debby Guyette, CataRomance Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun read! June 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a great story! The main character is easy to relate to - always worried about her figure. But Dante...oh, Dante... He sees her as beautiful, just the way she is. I'd love to stumble into his restaurant any day of the week. A fun read I highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars HarlequinJunkie Top Pick! August 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Starving ourself for the perfect man....we've probably all done that a time or two over the course of our lives. In this book Maria does just that and why not kill two birds with one stone and impress the size two skirts of a long time rival. But what happens when she meets the one man that accepts and desperately wants her just as she is.. she runs or she tries to!

I was hooked from the first chapter. Maria is a character that I just simply wanted to whack with the nearst object to knock sense into her. And Dante is one of those temptations that simply cannot be resisted and needs to be tasted at all costs!

I love how the author incorporates various mouth watering recipes into a tale of 'Out there is the one man that will love you for who you are,even if you don't'.

Maria's family are absolutely hilarious and had me laughing out loud at their sour n' sweet antics. I love how the author made the book almost personal as if trying to tell the reader home is where the heart is...

The Devil Served Tortellini has passion and even a sleazy character or two, which adds to the spice of romance. It is a fun and romantic comedy that left me feeling much like Maria twisted and twined around food for thought.

If you have never read the authors books before your in for a real treat -- go grab a copy of The Devil Served Tortellini before the restaurant is fully booked I mean the book stores sell out!

Enjoyed reading this series. A little different for me. Quirky characters that get into funny situations that eventually land them in love and walking down the aisle to happily ever after.

I had read this book several years ago. I just forgot about this author's work. I shouldn't have done that. It was just as much fun reading it this as last time. Thank you.
