‘Fans of EMILY HENRY will devour this!’ Cecilia Rabess

Love could be a recipe for disaster, or the best thing they ever cooked up…

Kieran O’Neill should be on top of the world. He’s just won a cooking reality TV show, he’s on track to open his own restaurant before he turns thirty, and he’s even got a high-paying cookbook deal. Still he can’t impress his stuck-up family, his ADHD makes planning ahead impossible and, worst of all, his ghostwriter is the most uptight, humourless woman he’s ever met. But to be seen as a serious chef like he’s always wanted, he needs to finish this book…

Ellie Wasserman is barely holding it together. She’s a thirty-year-old widow living with her needy in-laws, her little brother won’t adult without her help, and instead of working on her own cookbook, she’s ghostwriting one for the chaotic, impulsive Kieran O’Neill. Or would be, if he’d ever answer her emails. But to own her own home like she’s always dreamed of, she needs to finish this book…

As their deadline gets closer and the heat between them builds, can these two driven, lonely people let go of their past hurts and make something truly sweet together? Or will their fragile new love go up in smoke?

The ultimate will-they-won’t-they, enemies-to-lovers romance that readers everywhere are falling in love with! If you love THE SPANISH LOVE DECEPTION, WILDFIRE and Ali Hazelwood, you will love THE SLOWEST BURN . . .

The Slowest Burn is absolutely delicious. Smart, sweet and big-hearted, it is perfect for readers who want a romance that packs an emotional punch’ Laura Wood

‘A gorgeous love story with all the ingredients of a first-rate romance’ Emma Hughes


With this astonishing debut, Chamberlain gives readers two sharply drawn, deeply captivating characters who sizzle in and out of the kitchen. The Slowest Burn is an unforgettable feast, smart and delicious. I loved it.
Mia Hopkins, author of THIRSTY
A poignant and sensuous love story, Sarah Chamberlain's The Slowest Burn is beautifully written and deeply emotional. Kieran and Ellie are fundamentally good people with combustible chemistry who challenge each other and grow together, and I believed so much in their happily ever after.
Emma Barry, author of CHICK MAGNET and FUNNY GUY
In The Slowest Burn, Chamberlain serves up a romance as sharp as it is sweet. Fans of Emily Henry will devour this delectable story of love lost and found.
