TBT: Tempted by the Night

Thought I’d go with my paranormal, haunted, ghoulish, monster/Jane Austen story, Tempted by the Night, for Halloween Eve. So many people have asked why I decided to write historicals with paranormal elements, and I have to admit that I never set out deliberately to do it, rather the story/series idea would not go away and haunted me until I wrote them. So after writing the first one, His Mistress by Morning, I knew I would never escape without writing Hermione’s story (well, make that Rockhurst’s). I got so many emails about him, pleading for his story, something that didn’t surprise me in the least. I sort of suspected that might happen when I was writing Mistress. Sometimes a character steps off the page and takes a place in your heart. Like I said last week, Temple, from my Danver’s series, was another such character. The very moment Rockhurst came striding...

Desirable Thursdays: Covers I Heart

      Well it's that spooky time of year again, Halloween! Tonight the children are trick or treating in my neck of the woods and I do means woods since that is all my side yard is nothing but thick, colorful foliage and lots of wildlife. I always enjoyed Halloween as a kid even if my parents never permitted the idea of trick or treating my siblings and I still managed to have a ton of fun. This year I am tagging along with the children of the family as they venture out in their costumes and collect candy.    One of the best parts about Halloween I find that it isn't the candy but the covers of paranormal novels! Avon Romance has the spookiest and dare I say sexiest covers on the market and just in time to share for All Hallows Eve. I usually do not chose favorites but this...

A Gingerbread Recipe from Jenny Colgan, author of Christmas At The Cupcake Cafe

Merry Christmas! Ok, not really. I'm just getting in the mood as we visit with the author of the adorable new book Christmas At The Cupcake Cafe... Jenny Colgan! Jenny's new release is the second book in her Cupcake Café series. Today, Jenny is sharing a yummy recipe for Gingerbread. Take it away, Jenny! Gingerbread This is not for gingerbread men, which is more of a cookie recipe as it has to stay hard and crunchy. And it is not for gingerbread houses, unless you have endless time on your hands and (let’s say it quietly) are a bit of a show-off who would rather their cakes were admired than devoured. No, this is old-fashioned soft, sticky gingerbread. It doesn’t take long to make, but you’ll be glad you did. NB Oil the container before you fill it with treacle. Otherwise you and your dishwasher are going to fall out...
