What do Hungry Writers do? They “Cook Their Books” #FREE Anthology #KindleScout


I’m so proud to be a Kindle Scout Winner and Kindle Press Author — a big bonus for me was meeting and hanging out with the other winners. Such a talented, witty group — and good cooks, too!

So a bunch of us decided to cook our books. We’ve just released a FREE anthology of recipes: KP Authors (Kindle Press Authors) Cook Their Books.


Thanks to everyone who participated, but a big shout out to Fiona Quinn for organizing our cookbook drive and getting us off our butts. Fiona is an amazing mystery writer — check out her Lynx series HERE.

I hope you enjoy our recipes. Mine are from LOVE ME FOREVER. You can read an excerpt from my book along with a fun chat with my heroines, Liberty and Pauletta Sue.

This week on My Sexy Saturday # 70, in A Soldier’s ASoldiersItalianChristmas_256_384Italian Christmas  we go back to a time of war when Italy was a hotbed of Nazis trying to keep the American Army from reaching Rome…

He is a U.S Army captain, a battle-weary soldier who has lost his faith.
She is a nun, her life dedicated to God.
Together they are going to commit an act the civilized world will not tolerate.
They are about to fall in love.

December 1943

The ravages of combat have taken a toll on Captain Mack O’Casey, who has lost his faith after seeing the horrors of war as the Nazis fight hard to keep the Allies from reaching Rome. His beliefs are challenged even more when he loses his way and ends up in a mystical place called Monte D’Oro Rose during the cold winter of 1943…and falls in love with the beautiful Sister Angelina.

The young nun has a secret of her own, one she will die trying to protect: the lost Cross of Saint Cecelia. She must find the religious relic first before the brutal Nazi major who will stop at nothing to get it. Even murder. Sister Angelina risks her life to save the cross for the Church, but will she also risk her heart? Falling in love with the handsome American soldier is against the rules, but she can’t deny the stolen moments with him have made her question her vows.

It is Christmas Eve when these two lonely people come together on this holiest of holidays and how faith helps them overcome their greatest fears. A time when the whole world holds its breath as brave men and women fight for freedom.

And a soldier and a nun dare to fall in love…

Here are my 7 Paragraphs. Mack has taken refuge with the beautiful Sister Angelina–she was ready to shoot him in the dark until she realized he was an American GI. She’s asked him to stay for a hot meal…


“Then I insist you both stay.” Sister Angelina put down her weapon, a heavy old Smith and Wesson nickel revolver that Mack guessed belonged to Father Tom.

He watched her prepare the eggs and scrape together weak coffee. He didn’t realize how much he missed a home-cooked meal until now. Or was it because he enjoyed watching her that made it special? He put that thought out of his mind quick. He had no right to feel that way about her and he’d better get used to it. Mack poked around to take his mind off the pretty girl. He noticed potatoes and bread in the coffers.

He said, “I see you do a good business borrowing from the Nazis.”

She smiled. “God helps those who help themselves.”

She had grit all right. Most Italians were starving, resorting to eating horsemeat and peelings they found in the trash. Not here. No wonder Sister Angelina didn’t want visitors. She’d be shot if she were found stealing food. The thought set his teeth on edge.

“Suppose you and I do some exploring first, Sister, then we’ll eat,” Mack said, surprising her. “I want to see what we’re up against with this Nazi major you mentioned. How many men he has in the command post.”

“I understand, Captain,” she said, grinning. “You have what I believe you Americans call a date.


What happens when the horrible Nazi major finds out Sister Angelina is stealing food? And that she’s guarding a priceless artifact from the Church? And when the young nun realizes she’s falling in love with the handsome Captain?

ANaughtyChristmasCarol_AReAs I set out on this Black Friday adventure to the mall, I was wondering what my sexy Scrooge hero, Nick Radnor, is doing today.

Certainly Mr. One-Percenter is not standing in line at Walmart or Best Buy.

No, no. Not this hunky Wall Street stock trader who thinks nothing of dropping $5,000 for a suit or a measly $3,000 for a bottle of champagne.

I imagine Nick is at MAMIE’S, his Gentlemen’s Club, checking out the girls for his, um, favorite past time…BDSM.

Wouldn’t it be fun if the girls at Mamie’s ran Black Friday Sales? I think so. So here you go. MAMIE’S Black Friday Deals just for you Nick Radnors out there looking for personalized Holiday BDSM treats:

Come Fly with The Sexiest Man Alive


What do Chris Hemsworth and Jace Chantiers, the hero in my sexy new contemp, COME FLY WITH ME, have in common? They’re both “The Sexiest Men Alive…”

Yep. Kacie Bennett, my heroine, has no idea the billionaire bad boy who offers her a first class ticket home to save her little sister from marrying the wrong man, has just been named the sexiest man alive by a British tabloid:

“The Daily Sneek dubbed him the sexiest man alive. His picture is splashed all over the front page.” She winked and handed her the scandal sheet.

Kacie’s eyes popped. It was him all right. There, sprawled on the cover of the glossy gossip sheet was the gorgeous hottie who bought her a ticket home. The man’s charisma grabbed her, as bold and sexy on paper as he was in person. The paparazzi had caught his hard, muscled body in a candid shot somewhere on a white, sandy beach. Shoulders so broad they spilled off the page, his naked chest glistening with sea spray, his abs tighter than a clamshell.

And a come-hither grin that would have any woman crawling on her knees to get close to him. His brooding black eyes stared straight into the camera as if daring the photographer to take the shot.


Does Kacie take the ticket to fly home? The flight is booked solid, it’s New Year’s Eve, and the clock is ticking…would you fly home with “the sexiest man alive?”

Amazon Kindle and KU:

“Come Fly with Me” went live today!!


Come Fly With Me is what happens when a bad boy billionaire offers a lonely good girl a free airline ticket home to save her sister…in first class…next to him!!

This is a sexy contemp novella that takes place entirely in the airport and in the air on New Year’s Eve.

I’ve always enjoyed the films that take place on an airplane…who can forget Harrison Ford in Air Force One or Liam Neeson in the recent Non-Stop…but instead of bad guys taking over the plane, our bad boy is a handsome billionaire…the only thing he wants is the heroine…

Let me know what you think…this is a novella that sets up the Bennett Sisters who run a B&B called “The 3 Bees” in a Shangri-La-like small town in Northern California…more later…

Happy Flying!

Come Fly With Me is available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited
