apple, orange, cranberry sauce

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of the cranberry sauce that magically retains the shape of the can it comes out of. After avoiding this side dish at every pertinent holiday, several years ago, I discovered a Williams-Sonoma recipe for apple, orange, cranberry sauce and my family and I have never looked back. While I’ve altered it a bit from the original, trust me when I say it’s every bit as delicious as the first year I made it. I am very thankful for this flavorful cranberry medley and think you will be too. Happy holidays!

asking for it/begging for it, by lilah pace

ingredients: Drama and suspense. servings: This series deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised. preparation: This was a bit of a dark read. Not as dark as some other books I’ve read, but still, dark. As if the disclaimer didn’t already give that away… Vivienne is looking to have certain fantasies fulfilled and her boyfriend isn’t exactly on board. So when at party her...

moonlight on nightingale way, by samantha young

ingredients: Drama and humor servings: If you like a heart-warming story with some lightly veiled humor, plus angst–this one is for you. preparation: Unbeknownst to me, this is actually the 6th book in the On Dublin Street series. I was quite confused at the end of the book when a lot of the characters were being ‘wrapped up’ and I didn’t know why. I am a big fan of Samantha Young’s Hero, so it’s no surprise...

bounty, by kristen ashley

First and foremost—I met her!!! I met Kristen Ashley at the 2016 RT Convention in Las Vegas!!! She is one of my most favorite authors, as evidenced by the fact that I’ve read about 30 of her books. I was so tongue-tied that I was only able to marginally fan-girl over her. Squee!!! (This meeting in no way influences my review of her latest book.) what went right… Bounty is a clear evolution of...

the beast, by j. r. ward

I admit I was not overly excited about yet another book about Rhage. He’s not my favorite character, but I guess Ward can’t always write about Wrath and Zsadist. But wait, why not…Ok, I digress. Anyway, boy was I in for a treat! The Beast far exceeded anything I was expecting. Rhage and Mary have been going through a difficult period in their marriage—relatable and one of the things I love about Ward’s books....

we're getting a facelift!

Hello faithful followers! In an effort to bring you more benefits, including contests and giveaways–we’re undergoing a facelift and a bit of a behind-the-scenes relocation. (For you techies out there, we’re moving hosts.) You don’t have to do anything, (I don’t think…) but over the next few days/weeks our site may be a little ‘wonky’ (that’s a technical term) and it’s going to look a bit different in the short-term. But don’t worry, we’re working on...

last kiss, by jessica clare and jen frederick

So many series, so little time! My TBR (to be read) pile never dwindles! Last year I discovered the RT Booklovers Convention and what a windfall it proved to be in so many ways! New friends, great sessions, fantabulous authors, and books galore! It’s no wonder I will be back again this year in Vegas. One of the books that made its way into my over-weight suitcase last year, was Last Kiss, by Jessica...
