Excerpt from Suddenly Sexy by Linda Francis Lee
Katherine Bloom told herself she could do this. She just needed to focus and concentrate on getting the job done as quickly and as efficiently as possible. She refused to think about the fact that she didnýt have much experience. Though surely it was no different than riding a bike. Once youýd done it, you never forgot how. And if this was what she had to do to keep her job, so be it.
Nerves tried to break through her raised-chin bravado, and suddenly keeping her incredibly great job as an award-winning newswoman didnýt seem all that important. If she hurried, she realized, she could walk out the door and be in Mexico by lunch. She could change her name. Dye her hair. Find employment selling tacos on the street corner in downtown Ciudad Juýrez. Didnýt everyone need a career change at one time or another?
Groaning at herself, she shook the thought away. During the last week, she had put her reporterýs skills to work. She had found magazine articles, online Web sites, and books with titles like Make It Sizzle and Spice Up Your Life.
Not one to depend on a man to think of every eventuality, sheýd had the foresight to purchase a few things she thought they might need.
A bottle of wine.
Some painful-looking utensils. Who knew things had gotten so creative?
Plus, carrots and potatoes.
She still couldnýt believe Julia expected her to cook on live television with a man referred to as the Naked Chef.
Kate took a deep calming breath, thought about the stress management techniques she had learned in the company-sponsored stress management courseýwhich she had failedýthen smoothed her apron.
Seconds more ticked by before she finally settled on a smile, taking in the pristine white-latticed window behind her, the perfect sink, the shiny oven. Even a real refrigerator. She had thought of everything when planning this kitchen.
