Great Review for “The Great Outdoors” from @NightOwlReviews

four-starsSo excited to get a review from Night Owl Reviews today … and not just a review, but a great 4-star review!

Don’t ever think 1 Night Stand stories are all the same, because they’re not.  This story while full of sexual attraction and two really great characters, has them taking a long date.  This date is enjoying the outdoors and is absolutely wonderful and a great change as most of this series takes place in large cities.  Not only that, Tallulah and Mitchell take the time to talk and feel each other out prior to the hot sex.  These two professionals are that professional.  There is no jumping into bed without learning about the other, no just running away from a terrific position but there is more than attraction; there is the opportunity of a real match.  As always, this was a wonderful story and a terrific way to check out an author that you may not know.

But what really means the most to me in this review is that the reviewer totally got it! I’m not an erotic author, per se … but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like really sexy sex with my romances. And thanks, Terri, for reminding folks that this 1NS is a great way to check out a new-to-you author.

Christmas Cookies with Anise … and @DecadentPub

anise cookiesWelcome to my stop on the Decadent Publishing Book on the Nook blog hop.

–> Check out this cool promo!

I thought we’d nourish our mind a little before dessert. Aniseed is also known as anise. According to HowStuffWorks.com:

The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that you could increase desire by sucking on anise seeds. Aniseed does include estrogenic compounds (female hormones), which have been reported to induce similar effects to testosterone.

I witnessed the draw to anise firsthand with anise sugar cookies. The men in my life love them, and when presented a variety of homemade baked goods, they go for the anise cookies every time. And I always get a kiss or a hug. Hmm, go figure. Ladies, add this recipe to your holiday reportoire and I guarantee great results.

Ingredients
–  1 cup butter
– 3/4 cup sugar
– 1-1/2 tsp anise extract
– 3 eggs (add them one at a time)
– 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
–  2 tsp cream of tartar
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp salt

Directions … preheat oven to 350 degrees
1.  Cream together the butter, sugar and eggs. Add the anise, and then the dry ingredients.
2.  Turn the batter out onto a clean surface (I use a large cutting board, but if you typically roll out dough on your countertops, that’s a good place, too). There will likely be some pebbled, unincorporated bits of dry batter, but once you knead it all together before rolling, it all works in. Don’t worry. 🙂
3.  Roll cookies out to the thickness you prefer for cookies; I try to roll it between 1/8 to 1/4 inch and find this recipe bakes up nicely. If I’m using little cookie cutters, I roll it thicker.
4.  Place cut-out dough onto prepared cookie sheets (I use parchment paper), and bake for 6 – 8 minutes, until very, very lightly browned.
5.  I like to glaze them, but you could eat them plain out of the oven. To make the glaze: 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp anise extract, 3 Tbsp water; whisk it together until smooth (it’s thin), and either dip your cookies into it, or brush it on with a pastry brush.

We freeze about half of the batch since we can’t eat them quite fast enough, and I’ve found that they can live happily in the freezer for about three weeks.

Leave a comment below to let me know what your favorite holiday cookie is, and one lucky commenter will win a Fidget Bead Bracelet (if you live in the lower 48; $5 Amazon gift card if you’re far away). Be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can get in touch with you if you win.

Do You Travel for the Holidays? Find out if I do @DecadentPub …

Have you gotten your daily dose of decadence yet? I have, to some degree. After another ass-kicking … but totally triumphant … session of 8 AM Boot Camp, I came home and had half of a sundried tomato bagel. H. E. A. V. E. N. It paired nicely with my egg white and veggie omlette.

But that’s today’s decadence. What I really want to know is if you travel for the holidays. Swing by Decadent Publishing’s 1 Night Stand blog and let us know if you’ve got any interesting traditions that we might need to incorporate into our own. Ever been to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate? Ever forgone your pile of presents in lieu of an African safari? I can’t wait to hear all about it!

Wonderful 5-Star Review from, Long and Short Reviews!

Big smiles and gold stars to Aster for her wonderful, exciting review of my
1 Night Stand, The Great Outdoors! I’m so happy she liked Mitch and Tallulah’s story. Here’s a quick excerpt … but you can read the full review here.

The sex is hot, and definitely helps to strengthen the connection between Mitch and Lou. Their immediate physical attraction is enhanced when they realize they share similar interests and each is so different from the people that have hurt them in the past. Their only stumbling block? They live in different cities and different states. They quickly realize the obstacle they need to overcome, but refuse to allow it to overshadow their short time together.

I loved both characters and in a short few pages, the author conveys their past hurts, the way they overcame them, and their desire for new partners. In such a situation, a rebound is a natural assumption, but not for these two, and I credit that to the talent of the author.

As always, I’m left wanting more, but that’s because these characters are so likable. It’s hard not to root for them! If you want a quick, hot, and enjoyable read, definitely check this one out!
