When Colby St. James dresses like a man to prove she can succeed in the male-dominated world of professional cooking, she never expects to fall for the handsome chef who will decide her fate.

Left me wanting more...
Under Her Clothes is a well written short story that could have been an excellent full length novel. The plot is there - cross dressing, fear of discovery, tension in the workplace, familial issues. The characters are there - strong heroine (yes!) who is both courageous AND kind (its true a woman can be strong and not be a B??), interesting and complex hero, side characters each with their own back story that is hinted at. The dialogue is there - SMART vocabulary, witty banter. And, for such a short read, it is HOT! All the makings of the type of book I love to read (and the type of book that is so difficult to find!). I'm so disappointed that Ms. Edwards did not develop this in to more! I would caution readers that, although I liked this novella a lot, it is just that - a novella that cost 3.00 which I would never had bought without a gift card. I do look forward to reading more by this author.
