Recipe for Seducing a Playboy by Gina Gordon and Amanda Usen + Giveaway

You know what a big foodie romance lover I am, so it is with immense pleasure that I welcome to the blog not just one but TWO culinary romance authors! Please give it up to the lovely Amanda Usen and Gina Gordon who are here to tell you about their brand new releases! :-)


Recipe for Seducing a Playboy

Brazen authors Gina Gordon and Amanda Usen debate the best way to get the guy who is playing hard to get.

Amanda: I’m all over this! My husband was a total player when I met him. The best RECIPE FOR SEDUCTION is: drink a half a bottle of Tanqueray and take off your clothes. Oh—wait. That didn’t work. He said no. Because, well…I drank half a bottle of gin. So don’t do that. In small amounts alcohol is an aphrodisiac. In large amounts…not so much.

Gina: So your recipe for SEDUCING THE PLAYBOY was an epic fail. Weird…since getting drunk and taking off my clothes always seals the deal for me :) My tactic of seduction was showing up at my husband’s house after he didn’t cast me in a play. I wore a sexy little black dress with the intention of "auditioning” for him again and…. No, no. Wait. That was an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. In reality, I was the seducee. I couldn’t resist the cute little shrug he used to give me every time he drank a bit too much at my family’s pub. Seems like alcohol is a theme here. But that can’t be the best way to get the guy.

Amanda: Hey, hey, hey, hang on a minute! Epic fail is a bit strong! He married me after all. ;-) However, if I had it to do all over again, I’d skip the gin and angle for a massage instead. That always works, right? Getting or giving, the backrub ploy is the oldest trick in the book, and rubbing him the right way is a key ingredient in any RECIPE FOR SEDUCTION. Do you have a backrub scene in your book, Gina? I do. My poor hero has a crick in his neck. Start at the top, right?

Gina: Hmmm….well, I don’t have any back or neck massages. But that’s not to say “other” parts aren’t getting massaged. Like with a pair of vibrating panties! Bringing sex toys into the mix is definitely the right choice when SEDUCING THE PLAYBOY. What else caters to an alpha male’s need for control like putting your orgasm in his hands? Literally! Hey, Amanda….a little birdie told me that you’re into vibrating panties, too. Is that something you’d like to share with the group? 

Amanda: Ha! I'm not wearing the vibrating panties--my heroine is! In a limousine. In Vegas. With a trunk full of chocolate cream puffs and four different kinds of mousse. Because when it comes to the RECIPE FOR SEDUCTION, batteries are good, but food is better. What's your hot chef hero packing? 

Gina: My hero’s packing a spatula. Which he uses for more than just scraping batter out of a mixing bowl *ahem*. Because SEDUCING THE PLAYBOY means being open to different sexual scenarios. Even scenarios that turn something as innocent as making a carrot cake into a kinky fantasy come true...

Amanda: Carrot cake, huh? I’m more of a chocolate girl, but all cake is good cake! But there’s one thing on which we definitely agree. The best RECIPE FOR SEDUCING A PLAYBOY is:
Take one older brother's best friend. Add a heroine who won't take no for an answer. Rub them together with a few drinks and one pair of vibrating panties…and whip up a happy ending!


The best desserts are worth the wait…

Pastry chef Jenna Cooper crushed hard on playboy chef Roman Gallagher when her older brother brought him home to share their family Christmas six years ago. Now she’s old enough to do something about it, and she won’t take no for an answer—for anything.

Out of the frying pan into the fire…

Roman has one hard and fast rule—don’t sleep where you eat. But he can’t say no to Jenna’s plea for him to help her save her family business. Soon she's working for him, and their scorching chemistry melts Roman’s resistance.

If you can’t stand the heat…

Jenna knows Roman has reservations about enjoying the heat between them, but she’s got a plan. She’s going to keep this sexy man so satisfied in—and out—of the kitchen, he won’t regret a thing. But Roman has his own ideas. He wants more than a few hot nights, and he's going to teach Jenna a lesson about playing with fire.


Amanda Usen knows two things for certain: chocolate cheesecake is good for breakfast and a hot chef can steal your heart. Her husband stole hers on the first day of class at the Culinary Institute of America. They married after graduation in a lovely French Quarter restaurant in New Orleans. After enjoying the food and the fun in the Big Easy for a few years, they returned to Western New York to raise a family.

Amanda spends her days teaching pastry arts classes at a local community college and her nights writing romance. She’s a member of the Romance Writers of America ® and the Western New York Romance Writers. When she’s not writing, teaching or baking, she can usually be found chasing the kids around the yard with her very own scrumptious husband.

Let the game of seduction begin…

Veronica Whitfield feels like a frumpy old maid. After ten years of raising her younger siblings, she’s desperate to get her sexy back. And why not find it with the man she’s been in lust with since she was twelve years old—her brother’s best friend, Finn O’Reilly?

Finn is looking for love. And not any love—true love. Complete with the white picket fence, two children, and a dog. He’s just been a little unlucky finding it, and he sure as hell isn’t about to consider his best friend’s little sister for the job, no matter how badly he wants her in his bed.

But then Veronica propositions him with a game of dark, delicious seduction. Finn is tempted to indulge his hidden need for kink, but at what cost? Following through could very well ruin their friendship, but maybe—just maybe—helping Veronica rediscover her sexy side is exactly what he needs to find love at last…


When her dream of becoming a mafia princess didn’t pan out, Gina Gordon went after her second dream…becoming a writer. And she hasn’t looked back.

Gina, a self-proclaimed happily ever after junkie and cupcake connoisseuse, loves spinning contemporary tales of knee bending first kisses, unconditional love and super-hot sex. She broke out onto the romance scene with her #1 Amazon Bestselling erotic short story Her Five Favorite Words that’s been called a “deliciously naughty tale” by Joyfully Reviewed.

When not chained to her computer, you can find Gina sipping Starbucks, making cupcakes or feeding her addiction to celebrity gossip. She lives in Milton, Ontario with her husband and lovable dog.
