 Snippet:
“People should be free to choose, once they are old enough to know what they want, and can take respon­sibility for their choices,” I whispered, watching you, my little baby, asleep so peaceful in contrast to the rage that brewed in me.
“How could your father condemn you this way while forcing me to stand by, unable to do anything but des­pair? I know he felt wretched. That doesn’t help the pain in my soul.
“I begged him on my knees, but it was no use. Your path in life was sealed and no human could break it asunder. All I could do was leave the sad scene, crying miserably with you in my arms.
“Still, I am not alone in my misery. Before they left, she murmured that she wanted something different, but it was too late. She was as devastated as I.
“I … could hardly bear the burden put on my shoul­ders by them. Oh, Elizabeth, I tried my child, I tried to protect you and I have failed you…”

The Boardwalk Antiques Shop



The Boardwalk Antiques Shop
A Tangerine Street Romance
(a novel in three parts)
Find it on: Amazon * B&N * iTunes * Goodreads * Kobo

“Where Every Antique has a Story”

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE: Jennifer is newest owner of The Boardwalk Antiques Shop, inherited from her aunt. When Jennifer arrives in Seashell Beach, her first priority is to meet with a realtor to sell the place. She laughs out loud when she discovers the realtor’s name is Mr. Studly. But the more Jennifer gets to know Paul Studly, the more she finds reasons to stay and run the antiques shop herself.

SOLVING FOR X: Abbie is only a little bit obsessed with antiques, okay, a lot. So when Holden, an out-of-town business executive, tries to purchase the tin soldiers that Abbie’s had her eye on, Abbie refuses to back down. The antiques shop owner issues a challenge: whoever comes up with the best story for wanting the soldiers, will become the new owner. Abbie isn’t about to let some fancy executive beat her out, no matter how charming he is.

A STITCH IN TIME: When Cate learns that antiques dealer Henry Lancaster has purchased the sewing machine left to her by her grandmother, Cate is determined to get it back. What she isn’t counting on is that Henry has just as much claim as Cate. And it doesn’t help that Henry is good-looking and apparently single. Getting to know Henry becomes an unexpected surprise, sending her life into a sudden detour.

Other books in the Tangerine Street Romance series: The Fortune Café

My Review:
Each of the stories drew me in and made me fall in love all over again. I would highly recommend this fun anthology. I loved the setting, the characters, and the tie-ins to The Fortune Cafe series. Solving for X was a highlight for me. I absolutely adored Abbie.

Chocolate angel cake recipe


In honor of the angels in Of Love & Magic, Christina Dymock with Hungry Family has created an amazing chocolate angel cake recipe. I can't wait to try it out.


Chocolate Angel Food Cake

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup egg whites (10-12 large eggs)
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 ounces milk chocolate, shredded
2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in a metal mixing bowl. Beat until stiff peaks form and the whites are glossy. Add the vanilla and beat well.
In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, powdered sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and shredded chocolate. Fold 1/2 cup of the powdered mixture into the egg whites. Repeat until all the flour mixture is incorporated into the eggs.
Pour batter into a non-stick angel food cake or bunt cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 -35 minutes or until cake springs back. Run a knife around the edge of the pan and invert the pan onto a funnel or cup and allow to cool for 2 hours. Remove the cake from the pan and serve with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Sequel to Blog This

I had to share my new cover for the sequel to Blog This, Redeem This. The book is with the editor now. Will be available for sale the first week of February!
I need to think of a series title. So far we've got:

Love Above the Law
Tenderness and Terror
Pursuit of Fear Clean Romance Series
This and That Suspense
Badges and Romance
Love This Pursuit
Can you tell I'm really struggling? I'm starting a prequel to Blog This, Natasha and Tony's story and then a third book after Redeem This, with the FBI agent Marcus Klein as the hero. I need some kind of common theme, but not coming up with much!


Some men are beyond redemption. And Alex is one of them.

While trying to protect his sister, Alex was blackmailed and manipulated into doing heinous crimes. With theft, murder, and acts of terrorism on his resume, Alex is a man without hope. But Alex's next target comes with his own past--a beautiful ex-wife who believes Alex is more than the killer he's been made into. The road to redemption is long for someone with a blackened soul, and with lives hanging in the balance, Alex has a short deadline.

Detective Scott Bentley is the opposite of Alex. He's the good guy with his eyes set on leaving behind his days of law enforcement. But when he's asked to host agents at his secluded ranch for an FBI sting operation, Scott cannot refuse. Ivy McMahon shows up with the team, and Scott gets more than he signed up for. Not only can she hack into the any computer system, she's found a way into Scott's heart. The trouble is, Ivy's in protective custody and when the job ends, she'll disappear.

Is redemption possible for those whose lives are so scarred by the past? With danger crowding close, not even love may have a chance to redeem before it's too late.
