Serena Campbell has spent the past 15 years working towards this very moment, her skills are without question top-notch, and now that the Head Chef of Holby’s premier restaurant has resigned she, as his long-suffering sous-chef, is the only logical candidate to replace him, surely?
She had not factored the arrival of Bernie Wolfe into her plans and when Bernie is appointed to the Head Chef role, Serena is livid. Bernie is cool and calm under pressure, a commanding presence in the kitchen and bloody gorgeous to boot; the epitome of the perfect Head Chef and Serena cannot stand the woman. All she has to do now is figure out how to get rid of her…..

Dr. Serena Campbell, PhD. had such high hopes when she heard about the newest staff member of Holby University, high hopes of finally having a friend to add to the slew of colleagues who bore her, at best, begrudging respect. She though those hopes met, when the two of them finally meet, when they get along as even better than Serena hoped.
Then they start teaching together and Serena realises she was a fool to hope. She has never had a colleague get under her skin in quite the way Bernie manages to, whose every action manages to irk Serena's till her skin itches, and it is only a matter of time before Serena breaks and berates her newfound colleague for her every transgression.
Only when Serena does finally snap, Bernie's response is nothing at all like she expects, and so much more than anything she could have thought to hope for.
