Sorcha Grace of A FEAST OF YOU Shares a Cocktail Recipe!

In A FEAST OF YOU, Book 3 in my The Epicurean series, Catherine Kelly and her friends Allison and Dana, enjoy a girls’ night out at Hutch Morrison’s signature restaurant, Morrison Hotel.  Smokin’ hot, heavily inked ex-rockstar Hutch is now one of the most lauded chefs on the planet, but he’ll never turn his back on his rock-n-roll roots. Morrison Hotel’s menu completely changes a few times a year and each new menu is inspired by a rock album. Sticky Fingers is the current theme and Hutch’s plays on American Southern cuisine and “foods of his youth,” pay homage to the iconic 1971 Rolling Stones album.  Allison orders a fancy cocktail called the “Faithfull,” which is named for Marianne Faithfull, who co-wrote “Sister Morphine,” with Keith and Mick.  The drink itself is a play on Southern Sweet Tea, with a kick.  Bon Appetit!

EXTRA Chapter! "Slowly Unwrapped" by Victoria Vane (#Giveaway)

Victoria Vane has written an extra chapter called “Slowly Unwrapped” starring Wade and Nikki! The Christmas story is below and there is even a giveaway. Enjoy!

By Victoria Vane

Decatur Georgia, Christmas Day

Nikki yanked the handle of the shopping buggy. It stuck. She cursed and gave it another jerk but it remained jammed.

“Use your foot,” Shelby instructed. “Like this.” With one solid kick, Shelby wedged the buggy free. “I still don’t understand why you’re going through all this stress and aggravation, Nik. The man just gave you a ring. Are you really sure you want to risk cooking for him?”

Nikki grimaced. “Thanks a lot, Shel.”

“I’m just sayin’ he has to know by now that you’re no domestic goddess.”

The telegram Samantha Sawyer Rodriguez holds is her key to freedom: her late uncle, Ezra, has left her his ranch in Sweetwater Springs, Montana. At last, she and her young son will have a true home, and she can finally pursue her dreams of raising her prized miniature horses and building a sanctuary for wayward orphans.

Prosperous rancher Wyatt Thompson has long coveted that river property. It’s bad enough that Ezra’s niece refuses to sell it, but worse by far that she’s stubborn, proud, and breathtakingly beautiful. The lovely widow and her adopted sons awaken memories of a shameful past he’s struggled to overcome. Yet when Samantha’s safety is threatened, he’ll risk everything to save the unexpected family he’s come to cherish.

In this follow-up to Wild Montana Sky, her acclaimed USA Today bestselling romance, Debra Holland sweeps listeners back to that majestic, historical landscape in an extraordinary story of redemption, courage, and tender, steadfast love.

Linda's thoughts:
Samantha - "Daniel!"  She waved the letter.  "I have news," she called in the English she always used with him.
Her son straightened up from the horse.  "What, Mama?"
Eager expectancy glowed in his blue eyes, and for a moment he looked so much like his father that a familiar pain pierced her heart and tempered her excitement.  From long practice, she shoved her sadness aside.  "I've inherited Uncle Ezra's ranch in Montana."

Ivy Mason is hiding—from her past, from herself, and from anyone who could love her. The only kind of love she’s ever known hurts, leaving scars on her body and soul. Now, her world may be boring and predictable, but that’s exactly what she wants. Until Devon Clay walks into her life.

A lonely man in a deadly profession, Devon works as an agent for an underground British agency known only as the Shadow. Nothing about him is safe or ordinary. The danger that consumes his life turns into an addiction Ivy can’t resist...even if it proves fatal.

As Ivy’s past begins to catch up with her, she wonders if love really is the twisted thing she’s always thought it was. Maybe it could be more with this man, who’s shown her that she doesn’t need to protect herself from everyone. Is what she feels for Devon worth the risk? He may save her heart or break it, if she manages to stay alive.

When her thrill-seeking twin sister goes missing, Maddie Cooper must come to her rescue-which means teaming up with irritating, arrogant, and altogether way too sexy FBI agent David Marshall.

Though just when he needs his full attention on their mission, he's having the damnedest time keeping his mind-and his hands-off Cassie . . .

The secrets behind the wedding veil 

For penniless widow Ainsley McBrayne, marriage is the only solution. She's vulnerable yet fiercely independent, so shackling herself to another man seems horrifying! Until handsome stranger Innes Drummond tempts Ainsley to become his temporary wife. 

Once married, Ainsley hardly recognizes the rugged Highlander Innes transforms into! He sets her long-dormant pulse racing, and she's soon craving the enticing delights of their marriage bed. She has until Hogmanay to show Innes that their fake marriage could be for real… 

Linda's Thoughts: 
STRANGERS AT THE ALTAR, is a lovely Harlequin historical by Marguerite Kaye featuring two lovelorn characters who marry for convenience in Edinburgh in 1840. The story's setting then immediately moves to the author's native Argyll, Scotland for most of the rest of the tale. It is the story of Innes Drummond, an English widow, and Ainsley McBrayne, a Scottish laird, who have experienced what I could only describe as serendipity - by meeting entirely by chance at the offices of their attorneys.  The excerpt above - provided by the author - describes their initial meeting.

Top 5 Favorite Dishes for Larissa Ione's of REVENANT Holiday Table (#Giveaway)

Hello, everyone, and happy holidays! Today I’m going to share my Top 5 Favorite Dishes for My Holiday Table. Maybe one or more of these will make your list!

Let’s get started, because I’m hungry!

1. Turkey. Now, I’m mostly a vegetarian, but when I travel and during the holidays, I tend to slip, and one of the reasons is turkey. I really love it smoked, but I’ll take it any way it’s served!

2. Dressing. Dressing, not stuffing. I love to mix it up every year and try something new…maybe with cranberries or apples and sausage…I’m all for tradition, but I also like to take one traditional dish every year and do something different.
