Rhys Ford Giveaway
That being said… we’re having a GIVEAWAY right here! Comment below with the first dish YOU remember making by yourself (successful or no) and be entered to win… a surprise package of seasonings, sauces and treats specially selected by yours truly. The Pot Luck Giveaway on THIS blog will end Jan 6. Winner will be chosen randomly.

For my dish, I am suggesting you try vinha d’alhos (pronounced vin-GRAH doish by my relatives). It means meat with wine and garlic. It’s kind of like a Portuguese adobo.

From the moment former LAPD detective Bobby Dawson spots Ichiro Tokugawa, he knows the man is trouble. And not just because the much younger Japanese inker is hot, complicated, and pushes every one of Bobby’s buttons. No, Ichi is trouble because he’s Cole McGinnis’s younger brother and off-limits in every possible way. And Bobby knows that even before Cole threatens to kill him for looking Ichi’s way. But despite his gut telling him Ichi is bad news, Bobby can’t stop looking… or wanting.

Ichi was never one to play by the rules. Growing up in Japan as his father’s heir, he’d been bound by every rule imaginable until he had enough and walked away from everything to become his own man. Los Angeles was supposed to be a brief pitstop before he moved on, but after connecting with his American half-brothers, it looks like a good city to call home for a while—if it weren’t for Bobby Dawson.

Bobby is definitely a love-them-and-leave-them type, a philosophy Ichi whole-heartedly agrees with. Family was as much of a relationship as Ichi was looking for, but something about the gruff and handsome Bobby Dawson that makes Ichi want more.

Much, much more.
